Slobodan Milosevic's Personal Doctor To Examine Him At The Central Prison On April 23

Slobodan Milosevic's personal doctor will examine his patient at the central prison on Monday, April 23, to check his health. A Belgrade newspaper informed of this Saturday quoting a lawyer from the Fila lawyer's office which undertook defence of Yugoslavia's former president. A RIA Novosti correspondent reports that the permission for the patient's medical checkup by his personal doctor was issued by the investigator into Milosevic's case. According to the lawyers, the state of Milosevic's health has not changed after his return to prison from the military-medical academy. He has, in particular, high blood pressure which the doctors are trying to bring down by increased doses of medicines. As is known, Yugoslavia's ex-president was taken to the military-medical academy in the early hours of April 12, and on April 13 he was brought back to prison. Milosevic's associates from the Socialist Party assert that the doctors' board, which did not find any serious reasons for giving him treatment at the academy and took the decision to sent him back to prison, did so under the pressure of official authorities.
