Cops: Milosevic Ordered Shots At Us

By Digital Journal Staff     Apr 3, 2001 in Technology
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia — Police charged Slobodan Milosevic with inciting his bodyguards to shoot at officers trying to arrest him, a senior law enforcement official said Monday.
Police Lt. Gen. Sreten Lukic, who heads Serbia's Public Security, said that Milosevic's bodyguards wounded four policemen early Saturday, one seriously, when they charged his residence to try to arrest him.
Three of the bodyguards are in custody, including Sinisa Vucinic, Lukic told reporters. Vucinic, a Milosevic loyalist, was in charge of the armed squad protecting the former president at his upscale villa.
Milosevic was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of abuse of power and corruption, which carries a maximum five years in prison on conviction. If charged and convicted for inciting his body guards, he could be jailed for an additional 15 years.
