Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic was charged with attempting to kill an opposition politician, and dozens of his loyalists were indicted in the March 12 assassination of Serbia’s prime minister. Milosevic was charged with “organizing a criminal group” that tried to kill Vuk Draskovic in June 2000. Draskovic was slightly wounded.
Police also charged Milosevic’s secret police chief and his former army chief of staff in connection with the attack. Forty-five suspects were charged in the shooting of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic.
