Slobodan Milosevic The good the Bad and the Ugly Ruler: Religion & Ethnicity: His Parents: Schooling: Family: His Death: Slobodan Milošević was the President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1997-2000. He was born on August 20th,1941 in Požarevac, Yugoslavia and died at the age of 64 on March 11th, 2006 in The Hague, Netherlands. Milošević was full blood Serbian and
practised the Serbian Orthodox religion. Milošević was born and raised by both his parents but they separated in the after math of World War 2. His mother Stanislava Resanović commited suicide in 1972 and his father, Svetozar Milošević shot himself in 1962. Milošević studied law at the University
of Belgrade's Law School. After his graduation from University in 1966, Milošević became an economic advisor to the Mayor of Belgrade. Five years after he graduated and began working, he married Mirjana Marković, whom he had known since childhood. They had two children together Marko and Marija Milošević. Slobodan lost power in 2000 and was then
charged with crimes against humanity
and was sent to prison where died on
March 11th in The Hague, Netherlands
from a heart attack. By Rachael Longridge Means of gaining control: Popularity: In 1987 Milošević rose to prominence and almost overnight he became recognized as one of the main spokespersons for the Serbs nationalist federation after he stood behind Serbs in Kosovo. He was very popular with the Serbs until he started his murderous streak killing his friends, mentors, and hundreds of thousands of Muslims in order to carve a "Greater Serbia" from the ruins of Yugoslavia. Rise to power: Milošević was elected the President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in1997 and held power until 2000. Milošević claimed that Albanian authorities were constantly abusing their powers, that the autonomy of Kosovo was allowing the entrenchment of separatism in Kosovo, and that the rights of the minority Serbs in Kosovo were being regularly violated. As a solution, he called for political change to reduce the autonomy of Kosovo, protect minority Serb rights, and initiate a strong crackdown on separatism in Kosovo. Methods used to gain control: In order to gain control he had to get rid of his opponents. In the summer of 2000 former Serbian President Ivan Stambolić was kidnapped and his body was found in 2003 and Milošević was charged with ordering his murder. Also in 2005 Milošević forced several members of the Serbian secret police and criminal gangs to preform several murders to increase his power. Slobodan Milošević and Franjo Tudjman of Croatia used public media in their domains and turned television and radio into effective propaganda tools that intensified tensions between Serbs and Croats while demonizing the Muslims. He used secret police to preform the murders. Milosevic stole from his own people to gain personal wealth. Significant events during his ruling: Milošević was responsible for the Bosnian Genocide. He preformed a ethnic cleansing to Yugoslavia, driving millions of people from their homes and out of the country while killing hundreds of thousands of muslims and non serbians in order to create a "Greater Serbia". Serb-run camps in Northern Bosnia were symbolic of all that is inhumane.People were pressed tightly into barracks and deprived of their basic life necessities. Sadly, most resorted to quenching their thirst with excretion. On February 12, 2002 Milošević was taken to court in The Hague, he faced charges of crimes against humanity, violations of the laws and customs of war, and genocide.His death precluded a verdict in his four-year trial, leaving open wounds and dashed hopes that he would be held accountable for the death of more than 200,000 people. Impact on the
country: Milosevic caused Yugoslavia pain and sorrow. Hundreds of thousands of innocent people were killed just because of their race. The country suffered many economic crises after the genocide, and it took years to rebuild the country. Relationships with other countries: Milošević had a strong relationships with Russia,People's Republic of China, and Kosovo. Historically Russia always had strong relations with Serbia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.Milošević was often popularly known in China by the nickname "Lao Mi". Type of dictatorship: He ran a Authoritarianism and Absolutism dictatorship. Some individual rights were still allowed THE END :)
