The Serbian government and the Milosevic funeral

Just seen this on Sky News. It appears that the Serbian authorities may be preparing themselves to suspend the law and guarantee Mira Markovic temporary immunity from arrest or charges if she returns for the funeral of Slobodan Milosevic.

It also appears that this may be because Milosevic's party are currently propping up the government and are effectively in a position to hold them to ransom. I hope that this does not go ahead.

If you choose not to face justice and go on the run then so be it. But be prepared to pay the price. Stay away or return and be arrested.

I wonder where all this will leave Serbias attempts to join the EU? Of course there are other issues going on with Montenegros attempts to break away from Serbia so hoping to enhance their own prospects of joining the EU

From what I understand Serbia have to hand over two other henchmen ( Generals wanted for war crimes) by April 6 or there will be no discussions .......... ( I would name them , but its late and my spelling has gone awol ! )

Slobodan Milosevic is dead. Not sure if he poisoned himself to death or was it caused by his refusal to take certain drugs he needed for his heart condition. Either way, he's probably going to end up in hell for all the crimes against humanity which he had committed.
