Court acquits Milosevic's son

June 11, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The son of late Yugoslav strongman Slobodan Milosevic was acquitted of charges that he had harassed and beaten his father's political opponents in 2000.

The court in the family's hometown of Pozarevac in Serbia cited insufficient evidence and what it said was a lack of intent when it decided to clear Marko Milosevic of all charges.

Judge Gordana Vidojkovic said it was unclear who was responsible for the beatings of the activists with the student group Otpor, which was challenging Slobodan Milosevic's presidency.

Marko Milosevic fled to Russia after his father was ousted in 2000 by a pro-Western coalition. He was tried in absentia.
