Ntaganda Case
The Prosecutor v. Bosco Ntaganda

​On 8 July 2019, ICC Trial Chamber VI found Bosco Ntaganda guilty, beyond reasonable doubt, of 18 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, committed in Ituri, DRC, in 2002-2003. On 7 November 2019, Bosco Ntaganda was sentenced to a total of 30 years of imprisonment. The time he spent in ICC detention - from 22 March 2013 to 7 November 2019 - will be deducted from this sentence.

Next steps: The verdict is currently subject to appeals. The parties can also appeal the sentencing judgment within thirty days. Issues related to the procedure for victims' reparations will be addressed in due course.
