The Hague Tribunal sentenced Martić to 35 years in prison on June 12, 2007, for crimes against humanity and violating the rules and customs of war, including persecution, murder, torture, deportation and attacks on civilians, and deliberate destruction of civilian regions in Croatia between 1991 and 1994.

According to a statement from the tribunal, the former RSK president was found guilty of a joint criminal enterprise, whose goal was the creation of an ethnically pure, Serb territory, through the violent deportation of the non-Serb population that inhabited the regions under his control.

Martić was also convicted of war crimes in the villages of Hrvatska Dubica, Baćin, Saborsko, Lipovača and elsewhere, as well as of attacks on Zagreb on May 2 and 3, 1995, the statement adds.
