Slobodan Milošević (August 20, 1941 – March 11, 2006) 


The United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague issued a sweeping
new indictment on this day in 2001 of the former Yugoslav president,
Slobodan Milosevic, charging him with genocide in connection with the
war in Bosnia in 1992-95.

In its third and gravest indictment, the tribunal charged that Milosevic
”participated in a joint criminal enterprise, the purpose of which was
the forcible and permanent removal of the majority of non-Serbs from
large areas of the Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina.”

The former Yugoslav president died in his prison cell of a heart attack,
a few months before the verdict was due for his four-year trial.

Former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones (left) sued President
Bill Clinton for sexual harassment when he was governor, alleging
he exposed himself to her in a hotel room in 1991. The Jones suit,
which went all the way to the Supreme Court, was ultimately
dismissed by a judge on the grounds Jones could not show
damages. While it was on appeal, President Clinton agreed to      
an out-of-court settlement on this day in 1998. He paid $850,000 
without admitting liability.
