Following Mr Thomas Lubanga Dyilo’s conviction, in 2012, as co‑perpetrator of the war crimes of conscripting and enlisting children under the age of 15 in the DRC, to a total of 14 years’ imprisonment, the ICC Trial Chamber II, on 15/12/2017, issued a decision setting the amount of his liability for collective reparations at USD 10,000,000. The Chamber assessed the harm suffered by 425 identified victims at USD 3,400,000 and assessed Mr Lubanga’s liability towards other victims who may be identified at USD 6,600,000, i.e. a total of USD 10,000,000.In view of Mr Lubanga’s indigence, the TCII invited the Trust Fund for Victims to examine the possibility of allocating further funds for the implementation of collective reparations in this case.
