Between early 2013 and June 2016, in the village of Kavumu, a few dozen kilometers from Bukavu, the capital of South Kivu province, as many as 40 young girls whose ages ranged from 18 months to 10 years old were abducted and raped before being returned to their families.

Expert: Rehabilitation of those convicted by international criminal tribunals is woefully inadequate

Barbora Hola
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 09:37

Much ink has been spilled on the oft-difficult and dicey process of bringing wanted perpetrators to justice. Less attention has been paid to what happens after people are convicted by international criminal tribunals and have to pay their debt to humanity behind bars. In an effort to remedy that, Barbora Hola, an Associate Professor at the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and a colleague, carried out an extensive research project to look into how such convicted persons are rehabilitated, if at all. “Poorly”, it turns out, is the answer.

“He will appeal. He’s our president” - reactions to Bemba’s sentencing

Marie Louise Efekele, a member of MLC, spoke to Justice Hub just hours after the sentencing.
Thursday, June 23, 2016 - 17:12

Supporters of convicted war criminal Jean-Pierre Bemba believe a triumphant return to Congolese politics is still on the cards for him. This despite the 18-year sentence handed down on him by Trial Chamber III judges on Tuesday and the possibility that he might get more years tacked on to his jail term if the witness tampering case against him at the ICC doesn’t conclude in his favour.
