In one of ICTY’s first prosecutions of a high-ranking official, Tihomir Blaškić’s 45-year sentence was heralded as an exemplar of decisive justice when it was handed down in 2000. With much of the conviction reversed and the sentence reversed on appeal three years later, the case looked less secure. Much of the conviction and appeal turned on issues of command responsibility, where the ICTY’s jurisprudence set a precedent going beyond that established by post-World War II jurisprudence. While this constituted an advance in law and a step toward demonstrating political responsibility, public perception of the trial treated it as a triumph for the accused.
