Milošević died in The Hague seven years ago.

Milošević was honored by Deputy President of the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) Milutin Mrkonjić, leader of the Movement of Socialists Aleksandar Vulin, delegation of the Serbian Radical Party (SRS), Sloboda association, former minister Živadin Jovanović and others.

The SRS delegation was headed by Vjerica Radeta and Zoran Krasić who said that the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) maintains an anti-Serb attitude and that it performed a "judicial murder".

Milošević was born in Požarevac, eastern Serbia, on August 20, 1941. He graduated from the Faculty of Law in Belgrade in 1964.

In May 1989, he was elected president of the then Republic of Serbia. In the first multiparty elections in December 1990, Milošević was elected Serbian president.

In the early elections in December 1992, Milošević was reappointed as the president of Serbia and from 1997 to October 2000 he served as the president of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

Milošević also headed delegation of Yugoslavia and the Serb Republic (RS) in the peace negotiations in Dayton in November 1995 and was one of the signatories of the peace agreement that ended the war in Bosnia.

Milošević's regime ended in October 2000 as the candidate of the Democratic Opposition of Serbia won the presidential elections.

Milošević was arrested on April 1, 2001 and extradited to the Hague on June 28.
