ICC to hand down verdict against DRCongo ex-leader

0

THE HAGUE: War crimes judges deliver their verdict Monday against former Congolese vice president Jean-Pierre Bemba, blamed for unbridled rapes and killings by his private army in neighboring Central African Republic over a decade ago. It is the first case before the International Criminal Court (ICC) to focus on sexual violence as a weapon of war, and to place the blame for atrocities committed by troops on their military commander, even if Bemba did not order such crimes.
