The UN War Crimes Tribunal says experts have found no evidence that the former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic was poisoned or that he took excessive doses of prescribed medicine.
At a news conference, the Hague court’s president, Fausto Pocar, said: “Toxicological examination was carried out after the autopsy. The results are: so far, no indication of poisoning has be found. A number of medicines prescribed for Mr Milosevic were found in the body material, but not in toxic concentration.” Milosevic was found dead in his cell in the Hague last Friday. Further tests are to be carried out. The Tribunal is holding inquiries into the circumstances of his death and the detention centre where he was held.
