On 8/3/2018, the ICC Appeals Chamber issued its judgment in the Bemba & all case. It rejected the appeals submitted by the 5 accused against their conviction but acquitted Mr Bemba, Kilolo and Mangenda of the charge of presenting evidence that a party knows is false or forged. It dismissed the Mr Bemba, Babala and Arido’s appeals against their sentence but granted the Prosecutor’s appeal. In particular, it found that the Trial Chamber did not have the power to impose suspended sentences. The Appeals Chamber reversed the sentences of Mr Bemba, Mangenda and Kilolo and remanded the matter to the Trial Chamber for a new determination.
