Milosevic sits calmly in his home surrounded by friends and supporters,
while outside await ski-masked goons in armoured cars intent upon his
arrest. All of the propaganda and lies that have been used to
criminalise him in the past have been exposed and discredited, relegated
to the shadowy memories of the misinformed. So, how do you legitamize
this new assault?.......


Milosevic blamed in deaths of 16 at TV station
Had advance warning of NATO bombing, UN prosecutor tells economic forum

DAVOS, SWITZERLAND -- Carla del Ponte, the chief United Nations
war-crimes prosecutor, charged yesterday that former Yugoslav president
Slobodan Milosevic was responsible for the deaths of 16 Serb civilians
killed during NATO's bombing of a Belgrade television station in April, 1999.

Ms. del Ponte, who is calling on Yugoslavia's new regime to hand over
Mr. Milosevic for trial on war-crimes charges, said she was told by
employees at state-run Serbian TV that the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization gave him advance warning of the bombing at Radio TV-Serbia.

"Milosevic only advised some directors of the TV station," Ms. del
Ponte told a panel discussion during the World Economic Forum in Davos.
"He didn't want the technicians to leave the TV. Milosevic himself
obliged people to stay in this building, knowing that it would be bombed."

She contended that Mr. Milosevic wanted the technical employees,
including a young makeup artist, to remain so that their deaths could be
used as "a sort of manipulation against NATO."
