Slobodan Milošević

Slobodan Milošević (August 20, 1941 Požarevac-March 11, 2006 The Hague) a.k.a. Slobodan Milosevic, Butcher of the Balkans, Sloba or Слободан Милошевић was a Serbian politician. He had two children, Marko Milošević and Marija Milošević.

Slobodan Milošević was the President of Serbia from 1989 to 1997 and President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1997 to 2000. He was known for his strong nationalist views and played a significant role in the conflicts in the Balkans in the 1990s, particularly the wars in Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo.

Milošević was accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 1999. He was indicted for his role in the wars in Croatia and Bosnia as well as the genocide in Srebrenica. In 2002, he was also indicted for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed during the Kosovo conflict.

Milošević was arrested in 2001, and his trial at the ICTY began the following year. He chose to represent himself, but his health deteriorated during the trial, and he died in his cell before a verdict could be reached.

Milošević's legacy remains controversial in the Balkans, with some viewing him as a hero and others as a war criminal. His role in the conflicts of the 1990s and his subsequent indictment and trial have had a significant impact on the region's politics and the future of international justice.

He died in myocardial infarction.
