Milosevic Pleads Innocent to Crimes

THE HAGUE, Netherlands?Defiant after four months in custody, former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic denounced new charges at the U.N. war crimes tribunal Monday and scorned three lawyers assigned to help him.

Milosevic refused to enter pleas to a new indictment accusing him of atrocities and murder in Croatia in 1991, and to expanded charges of more deaths, deportations and sexual assaults on the part of his forces in Kosovo in 1999.

It was Milosevic’s third tribunal appearance since Yugoslavia extradited him June 28, and the third time he has clashed with the presiding judge, Richard May of Britain.

Milosevic was charged with 32 counts of murder, persecution and plunder in Croatia, allegations going back to the 1991 start of the Balkan wars when the former Yugoslavia broke apart.
