    Leprosy drug found in Milosevic

    According to this article, from today's Guardian, traces of rifampicin have been found in Milosevic.

    The Russian government today confirmed it received a letter on Sunday from Milosevic, dated Friday, which alleged he was being deliberately given the wrong drugs for his illness.

    "Persons that are giving me the drug for the treatment of leprosy surely cannot be treating me," he wrote to the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov. Especially those persons against whom I have defended my country in the war and who also have an interest in silencing me can likewise not be treating me."

    The letter was handed to the Russian embassy in the Netherlands by Milosevic's aides on Saturday, the foreign ministry said.

    "In this handwritten letter, Slobodan Milosevic speaks about an inadequate treatment conducted by doctors of the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and is again asking for Russian support in getting permission for undergoing therapy at a medical facility in Moscow," the ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said.
