ICC Finds Congolese Rebel Katanga Guilty in Third Judgment


Germain Katanga, a Congolese rebel leader, was today found guilty at the ICC of war crimes and crimes against humanity during an attack on a village in the DRC in 2003. He was acquitted however of charges of sexual slavery and rape as well as using child soldiers. “While the brutal attack on Bogoro village is but one of a growing list of grave crimes in eastern DRC, this verdict is a victory for victims and their families and sends a message to the perpetrators that they will be held to account. Victims may now be in line for reparations and redress to help rebuild their lives, a defining feature of the ICC system,” said Coalition Convener William R. Pace. “However it is concerning that those responsible for the crimes of rape and using child soldiers, which continue to blight the region, have yet to be brought to justice. The Court must now increase its outreach to explain to victims and affected communities what has happened.” Read civil society reactions in our press release.
