This case relates to crimes that were perpetrated during the conflict between the Croatian Defense Council and the Bosnian Muslim Army in the Lašva Valley region of Central Bosnia from May 1992 until January 1994. The Appellant, Tihomir Bla{kić, was the Commander of the HVO Armed Forces in Central Bosnia at the time the crimes at issue were committed.

The Trial Chamber convicted the Appellant on the basis of nineteen counts set forth in the Second Amended Indictment, for crimes that occurred in the Vitez, Busovača, and Kiseljak municipalities. These counts encompassed violations of Articles 2, 3, and 5 of the Statute of the International Tribunal. The Appellant was convicted on the basis of Article 7(1) of the Statute for ordering the crimes. The Trial Chamber also stated in the disposition of the judgement that "in any event, as a commander, he failed to take the necessary and reasonable measures which would have allowed these crimes to be prevented or the perpetrators thereof to be punished." Therefore, the Trial Chamber also convicted the Appellant under Article 7(3) of the Statute. The Trial Chamber imposed a single sentence of 45 years' imprisonment.
