Milosevic blood showed he took wrong drugs – doctor

March 13, 2006

THE HAGUE (Reuters) – Tests on Slobodan Milosevic’s blood
taken before he was found dead on Saturday showed traces of a
medicine that negated the effect of high blood pressure drugs,
a Dutch toxicologist said on Monday.

Groningen University toxicologist Donald Uges told Reuters
tests he conducted two weeks ago on Milosevic’s blood showed
traces of rifampicin — a drug against leprosy and tuberculosis
that would have made other medicines ineffective.

The 64-year-old, who suffered from a heart condition and
high blood pressure, was found dead in his cell on Saturday
only months before a verdict was due in his trial on charges of
genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the 1990s.
