As ex-Interior Minister Vlajko Stojiljkovic remained in a critical condition on Friday, after shooting himself in the head, Yugoslav Foreign Minister Goran Svilanovic said the government's decision to hand suspects to an international tribunal would stand. The U.N. tribunal in The Hague indicted Stojiljkovic along with former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic for atrocities committed by Serb forces in Kosovo in 1999. Stojiljkovic shot himself in the head outside the Yugoslav parliament on Thursday, hours after the Yugoslav parliament adopted a law that allows war crimes suspects to be arrested and extradited to the U.N. War Crimes Tribunal. In a suicide note, Stojiljkovic accused reformists who steered the bill through parliament of selling him and other indictees to the Hague in return for Western aid.
