Serbs May Arrest Milosevic for a Local Trial


BELGRADE, Serbia, Feb. 8 - Slobodan Milosevic, who led Serbs into four wars
and 13 years of impoverishment and isolation, could be arrested very soon
and tried for multiple crimes ranging from embezzlement and election fraud
to discrimination against minorities and perhaps treason, the new Serbian
justice minister said this week.

The Serbian government is meanwhile pressing ahead with building a case
against Mr. Milosevic and his associates. "We are gathering evidence," Mr.
Batic said. "Milosevic could be indicted for several criminal offenses
including large-scale theft, corruption, embezzlement, violating citizens'
rights and rigging elections."

He may even face charges of treason for capitulating during the war over
Kosovo, he suggested.
