Blaskic's trial ended in July 1999. He stands accused of crimes committed against Bosniaks in central Bosnia by HVO forces under his command.

The deliberation of the judgement, which presiding judge Claude Jorda has described on several occasions as "important" and requiring "close consideration", has lasted a full seven months.
