ICTY announces genocide charges against Slobodan Milosevic
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On August 30, 2001, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) informed former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic that he would be charged with genocide in addition to other war crimes. The charges stemmed from Milosevic's role in the Balkan civil wars of the 1990s in which he, as President of Serbia and Yugoslavia, attempted to use force to prevent the ethnic dissolution of the Yugoslav Federation.
