The International Criminal Court unanimously convicted Bosco Ntaganda, a former Congolese rebel commander, of war crimes and crimes against humanity on July 8, 2019. 

His sentencing hearing will now take place September 17-20, before the court in The Hague.

Ntaganda was convicted on 18 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity. He is the former Deputy Chief of Staff of the Patriotic Forces for the Liberation of Congo (FPLC), the armed wing of a rebel movement known as the Union of Congolese Patriots (UPC). He has been in the court’s detention since March 2013, and his trial opened on September 2, 2015.
