Islamovic has been found guilty of committing crimes against Serbs in Bosanski Brod in 1992.

The time he spent in detention since between October 2017 until April 2018 will be calculated into the time Islamovic has been ordered to serve.

Islamovic, a former member of the HVO and a commander in the formation's "military police," was found guilty of participation in arrests, killings, and psychological and physical mistreatment of Serb civilians who were detained in the basement of the old police station in then Bosanski Brod, and at the Polet Stadium.

Islamovic was also charged with taking prisoners to forced labor sites, burning and plundering their property, as well destroying their religious, cultural and historical monuments.
