Slobodan Milosevic wrote a six-page letter the day before he was found dead, claiming that traces of a "heavy drug" had been found in his blood and that he feared being poisoned, a legal aid to the former Yugoslav president said Sunday. Zdenko Tomanovic showed the letter to reporters at the UN tribunal, and complained that the court which had been trying Milosevic rejected the family's request that an autopsy be conducted outside the Netherlands. Milosevic was "seriously concerned" about being poisoned, Tomanovic said. The letter and a brief English-language cover letter, dated March 10, was addressed to the Russian Embassy for forwarding to the Russian foreign minister.
