PARIS, March 14 -- Former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic received special privileges in prison that could have allowed him access to medicines that had not been prescsribed for him but that a Dutch doctor identified in his blood samples two weeks ago, according to court authorities.

An unnamed tribunal official told the Associated Press on Tuesday that guards at the prison repeatedly found unprescribed drugs and alcohol in Milosevic's cell. Milenov declined comment on those reports and on possible links between his privileges and unauthorized medications. But other court officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they saw a possible connection.

Milosevic died of a heart attack, according to autopsy results, but the mystery over what caused his heart to stop continued Tuesday. Relatives claimed he was poisoned, but some Dutch authorities said it appeared that he took unprescribed medicines in an effort to reduce the effectiveness of medications he had been prescribed for his high blood pressure and heart problems. The authorities have speculated that Milosevic was trying to build an argument for being allowed to go to Russia for treatment.
