Book Of Condolences Opened In Gracanica, Serbs Believe Milosevic Is Innocent

GRACANICA, March 13, 2006 (BETA) - The Socialist Party of Serbia municipal chapter in Gracanica opened a book of condolences for former Yugoslav and Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic in Gracanica, on March 12. People can also light candles in memory of Milosevic outside the town's central monument.

The people who signed the book of condolences believe Milosevic was innocent. "The world's power mongers couldn't prove their own allegations, which is why Milosevic was killed at The Hague," they say.

The news of Milosevic's death caused disbelief among Serbs of Kosovska Mitrovica. Regardless of their political affiliation, they claim that Milosevic was denied the basic human right -- the right to life.

Association of Serb Municipalities and Settlements in Kosovo chairman Marko Jaksic, who is also one of Belgrade's negotiators for the Kosovo future-status talks, openly blamed the tribunal for Milosevic's death.

"It is difficult not to get the impression that the tribunal turns Serb politicians into criminals, and Albanian criminals into politicians, which is one sad story," Jaksic said.
