[JURIST] Serbian authorities issued a new arrest warrant [JURIST report] for the wife of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic [JURIST news archive] Thursday. Mirjana Markovic [Wikipedia profile], who fled Russia in 2003 in the face of an international warrant, failed to appear before a Belgrade court for alleged corruption charges. The international warrant was revoked in June [JURIST report] when her lawyers promised she would show up for the hearing, but a spokesman for Markovic said she failed to show because a national warrant was still in force against her. Markovic is accused of giving government apartments to her grandson's nanny and Communist party officials. BBC News has more.
