Summary/Abstract: This paper presents the operation, organisation, as well as venue and criminal jurisdiction, of the Court-Martial in Bjelovar in the period 1992–1996, after which it was abolished, on the basis of the court archival material that is in safekeeping at the State Archives in Bjelovar and the then valid regulations and ordinances. Courts-Martial were relatively briefly a part of the judicial system of the Republic of Croatia during the period of its gaining independence and liberation. Despite many difficulties, their operation contributed efficiently to the functioning and protection of the rule of law.
