Traces of a drug used to treat leprosy and tuberculosis were found in a blood sample taken in recent months from former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, a Dutch news report said, citing an unidentified "adviser" to the U.N. war crimes tribunal.

The report came hours after Milosevic's legal adviser showed journalists a letter the late Serb leader wrote Friday, one day before his body was discovered in prison, alleging that he was being poisoned.

Who would have motive for killing him? If this was an assassination what was being protected? I know Kosovo was not as bad as the media made it out to be but who is there to protect?

There seems to be a little confusion here:


    The preliminary results of an autopsy in the Netherlands on Slobodan Milosevic show the former Yugoslav leader died of a heart attack.

    He was found dead in his cell on Saturday in The Hague where he was on trial for war crimes.

    A toxicological report on the body has still to be completed amid allegations he may have died of poisoning....

    He had complained of "strong drugs in his system only used for treating leprosy or tuberculosis" in a letter to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

    The Guardian

    His lawyer, Zdenko Tomanovic, said last night that Milosevic had feared he was being poisoned and had complained to the tribunal.

Emphasis mine.

There is already a thread dealing with the possible conspiracy or coverup in the death of Milosevic.
