More On Milosevic-Range Hypertension

Some Milosevic Doctors Call Care by Tribunal Inadequate - From The New York Times:
By January his blood pressure readings became increasingly erratic, with levels as high as 260/180, Dr. Andric has said in the Serbian press. Irate at charges that he had not been taking his medicine, Mr. Milosevic agreed to new blood tests. It was in part that examination that led prison doctors to suspect foul play, perhaps by Mr. Milosevic, Dr. Uges said. Was there some substance that would nullify the blood pressure medicines? "We realized that the only thing that could do this was rifampicin," he said. A blood sample was found to contain the compound.

Maybe he purposefully didn't take his meds? Thus, by causing his bp to skyrocket, and ultimately his death, he denied the court the "satisfaction" of completing the trial.
