ICC : Bosco Ntaganda sentenced to 30 years’ imprisonment by a judgement of 7 November 2019, for 18 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, committed in Ituri, Democratic Republic of the Congo, in 2002-2003

In its assessment, the Trial Chamber VI of the ICC referenced aggravating circumstances for several of the counts, but failed to find allegations of witness interference as aggravating given a lack of findings on the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt. The Chamber also found no mitigating circumstances warranting reduction of sentence in its analysis. Mr. Ntaganda is granted credit for the time he has served since March 2013.
