Milosevic Linked with Body-filled Truck

He said that on that occasion, Milosevic instructed Interior Minister Vlajko Stojiljkovic to take steps to remove all traces that might point to evidence that crimes had been committed in Kosovo. Karleusa said police had established that a refrigerator truck found in the Danube contained 50 bodies of ethnic Albanians from the Kosovo area and that the case was proclaimed a state secret by order of Milosevic. A diver testified on television and in other media that he helped to lift the truck from the water on April 6, 1999, two weeks after NATO launched its air campaign against Yugoslavia on March 24 to stop alleged repression of Kosovo Albanians by Yugoslav security forces. Friday's announcement marked the first time Milosevic has been linked by Serbian authorities and Yugoslavia with war crimes in Kosovo. Milosevic was arrested on April 1 on charges with abuse of power and embezzlement.
