Milosevic is proud of all he has done

Slobodan Milosevic has said he is sure he did the right thing for Yugoslavia, according to a Canadian lawyer who visited the former president in prison.

Milosevic, who last week was charged at a United Nations tribunal with crimes against humanity, issued a statement on Monday through the lawyer, Christopher Black, in which he said he was not suicidal and in good health.
"I am the moral winner," Milosevic said according to Black. "I am proud of everything I did for my people and my country, and everything I did was honest."
Black, who has appeared as a defence lawyer before the U.N. tribunal on Rwanda, said he has not been hired to be Milosevic's lawyer. So far, Milosevic, who is a lawyer himself, wants to represent himself.
Milosevic is charged by the United Nations war crimes tribunal with responsibility for the murder of more than 600 people and the displacement of 740,000 ethnic Albanians in Kosovo in 1999. His crackdown in Kosovo was brought to an end by a 78-day bombing campaign by NATO forces.
"I only exercised the right of every citizen to defend his country and that is why they arrested me," Black quoted the prisoner. "If you are looking for war criminals the right address is not Scheveningen, it is the headquarters of NATO."
