After months of maintaining his innocence, Agnew pleaded no 
contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion and resigned
from office. Nixon replaced him with House Republican leader

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.
