Assassination of Djindjic 'Was Part of Coup Attempt'

The Serbian government yesterday presented in detail its assertion that Zoran Djindjic, the former premier, was assassinated in a political conspiracy. An indictment released by Serbia’s Interior Ministry names 45 individuals allegedly involved in a “conspiracy to endanger the country’s constitutional order and security” by sponsoring “terrorist political activities” – including, ultimately, Djindjic’s March 12 assassination. Those accused include Vojislav Seselj, a former paramilitary leader and politician currently on trial in The Hague for war crimes. He and others are charged with “encouraging” Dusan Spasojevic, a gangster, to order Djindjic’s assassination, an interior ministry official told the Financial Times. Spasojevic was killed not long after Djindjic’s death. The indictment also lists related conspiracy charges against Aca Tomic, a former military intelligence chief sacked during Djindjic’s rule; Rade Bulatovic, a security adviser to Vojislav Kostunica, the former Yugoslav president; and Borislav Mikelic, a former leader of rebel Serbs in east-ern Croatia’s Krajina reg-ion.
