Mr. Vlajko Stojiljkovic, head of police under Mr. Slobodan Milosevic, former president of Yugoslavia/Serbia, shot himself in the head in front of the federal parliament building in Belgrade. In a suicide note, he said this was a protest against parliament’s adoption of a law allowing the transfer of war crimes suspects to The Hague, which had taken place just a few hours earlier.
“Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica described the suicide attempt as a “warning to the international community that constantly sets conditions, pressures us and dictates behaviour”.
Let me see if I understand this correctly: the international community should be warned by a suicide attempt on the part of someone accused of war crimes? Warned of what? That even more suspects would try to kill themselves (and might fail)? Eh?
