[JURIST] Slobodan Milosevic [BBC profile; JURIST news archive] Monday asked judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia [official website] to let him visit a Moscow clinic for medical examinations during the court's winter recess. Milosevic suffers from high blood pressure and a heart condition and earlier this month was granted a limited adjournment [JURIST report] after for health reasons. The former Yugoslav president is charged [ICTY case backgrounder] with genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the Balkans in the 1990s. Milosevic is defending himself and the proceedings have been limited to three days a week to ease pressure on him, despite prosecutorial opposition [JURIST report] to extensions of his trial. The tribunal has asked Milosevic to submit his request in writing with a medical report on the condition to be treated in Russia. Reuters has more.
