Milosevich at the Hague

From 1987 until 2000, former Yugoslavian President Slobadan Milosevic rose to power promoting Serbian nationalism. His campaign included wars in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo. The final chapter of Milosevic’s life took place in the Hague, where he was imprisoned and appeared before the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. There he faced charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in the deaths of more than 100,000 people in the Bosnian war. In March 2006, Milosevic died of a heart attack in his cell in the Hague, leaving his trial unfinished. His life and death are the subject of a new play written by a UMass theater professor called Milosevic at the Hague. WFCR’s Susan Kaplan reports.
