ICTY formally closed Milosevic trial

On March 14, 2006, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) formally closed its case against former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic, three days after he was found dead in his cell. Milosevic's sudden death prevented the ICTY of reaching a judgment against Milosevic, who had been accused of various war crimes in connection with the Balkan wars.
