Now, the mainstream media is co-operating in a counter claim by saying that Milosevic 'took wrong drugs on purpose to get to Russia'. Indeed, Milosevic had been requesting treatment for a heart condition and asking that it should happen is Moscow as his treatment in Holland didn't appear to be working.
The Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed today that it had received a letter from Slobodan Milosevic complaining of inadequate treatment and asking for help in getting permission to undergo treatment in Moscow.
Spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said, "In this hand-written letter, Slobodan Milosevic speaks about an inadequate treatment conducted by doctors of the International Tribunal ... and is again asking for Russian support in getting permission for undergoing therapy at a medical facility in Moscow"
Milosevic's lawyer Zdenko Tomanovic said his client had written to Russia claiming he had been given the wrong drugs in an attempt to silence him on the issue of the war crimes committed by NATO and the US. Only a couple of weeks earlier, another person involved in the trials was found dead, apparently having committed suicide.
1) Milosevic told his lawyer the day before he died that he feared he was being poisoned, and gave him a letter to send to the Russians pleading for protection again, pointing out that a drug that would cancel the effects of medication had been found in his blood in January, and he had only just found out about it
2) Everyone who was with him the days before his death said he was saying he did not trust the Hague doctors, given that there was this extra drug in him, and they had done nothing about it and not even informed him
3) In January Milosevic took all his drugs under controlled conditions, where he could not leave for anything for hours afterwards. Despite this, it was found that he STILL had levels below what he should have in his blood. This means that he definately was taking his drugs (taking was supervised always anyway), and that they were not having the proper effect.
4) The Russian doctors who reviewed the autoposy stated that he would definately have been alive today had he been given the proper treatment
5) The other doctors treating Milosevic have said that his health was steadily deteriorating, yet the tribunal did nothing, and denied him treatment in Moscow
