The NCPN Central Committee is deeply shocked by the tragic death of Slobodan Milosevic, former president of the Yugoslav Federation.
The least that the International Criminal Tribunal (ICTY) can be accused of is involuntary manslaughter. Since November 15 requests have been made to receive treatment at a heart clinic in Moscow. In spite of his critical physical condition that was confirmed by a team of specialists these requests were refused. This refusal to allow Milosevic to go to Moscow was in fact the signing of his death-warrant. Also the medical responsibility of the prison doctors can be brought up for discussion. Furthermore premeditated murder can not be ruled out, given the course of the trial and recent statements by Milosevic's lawyers and other intimates.
The ICTY lacked evidence to sustain the charges and ended up in a dead end street. A continuation of the trial would lead to the conclusion that Slobodan Milosevic could not be sentenced and had to be declared innocent. An even bigger risk for this NATO's Tribunal was the fact that witnesses called up by Milosevic increasingly started to reveal the true causes of the Balkan tragedy: the political intrigues of individual Western nations like Germany and the United States and their imperialistic economic and geopolitical interests.
The truly guilty ones are the Western nations that were determined to break up the politically and economically independent federal state of Yugoslavia. The tribunal represents the institutionalisation of the continuous violation of international law by the United States and the United Kingdom. At this moment the same countries are secretly developing a new type of nuclear bomb.
The NCPN regrets the negligence and the so-called neutrality of the Netherlands government that once more showed its servile submission to the US diktats. With regards to this case the Dutch media have revealed themselves as unthinking institutions that only parrot the international press agencies that are copywriters for the ruling Western forces. This was emphasized especially from the moment that Slobodan Milosevic started examining the witnesses.
Before that the trial was in the news continually, but suddenly a orchestrated and deadly silence fell over it.
The media attention for Milosevic death confirms this conclusion:
The assertion that the ICTY is an institution of the United Nations is false. The tribunal has been established by the instigators and the 'winners' of the war in Yugoslavia: NATO. The initiative for establishing the court was brought before the Security Council, which is dominated by NATO-countries. It was not brought before the General Assembly of the United Nations.
After the unveiling of the truth and the removal of the blanket of lies Slobodan Milosevic will go down in history as a courageous fighter for the political and economic independence of Yugoslavia.
The Central Committee of the NCPN, gathered on March 11, 2006 observed two minutes of silence and will do its best ability support all people that want to uncover the full truth about Milosevic's death and the destruction of Yugoslavia.
In this hard hour we wish strength to family, friends, the SPS, the people of Yugoslavia and all independent minds that were and will be involved in the struggle against enslavement, shallowness and Western arrogance. The guilty ones must be punished. Slobodan Milosevic's struggle will be continued in numerous places around the world.
