ICC hears DRC warlord Ntaganda evidence

10 February 2014, 15:34

Amsterdam - Judges at the International Criminal Court are weighing whether there is enough evidence to put Bosco Ntaganda, the former leader of a rebel group in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s unstable eastern region, on trial.

Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on Monday accused Ntaganda, nicknamed "The Terminator" for his ruthlessness in battle, of 13 charges of war crimes and 5 charges of crimes against humanity for acts including murder, rape, and persecution and recruiting child soldiers. Ntaganda's lawyers say he is innocent.

Ntaganda listened to Bensouda's opening statement gravely. He was indicted in 2006 and was brought to the court in The Hague, Netherlands last year after his group splintered and he fled to neighbouring Rwanda. He took refuge in the US embassy before being deported.
