Order Scheduling a Hearing for the Delivery of the Addendum to the Reparations Order of 8 March 2021
Background: The trial of Mr Ntaganda opened on 2 September 2015. On 8 July 2019, ICC Trial Chamber VI found Bosco Ntaganda guilty of 18 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, committed in Ituri, DRC, in 2002-2003. On 7 November 2019, he was sentenced to a total of 30 years of imprisonment. The Trial Chamber issued an order on reparations on 8 March 2021. The verdict and the sentence were confirmed by the Appeals Chamber on 30 March 2021. The Appeals Chamber partially reversed the reparations order and remanded it for the Trial Chamber to address five specific issues.
