He was also found guilty of mental and physical abuse and the confiscation of property.

Maric was acquitted of charges that he committed war crimes against prisoners of war. He was also acquitted of charges that he unlawfully captured Bosnian Army soldier Jusuf Muratovic in the village of Han Ploca, near Kiseljak.

The parties have the right to file an appeal with the Supreme Court of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
