The second man to be sentenced by the International Criminal Court was Germain Katanga. On 23 May, the ICC found the former Congolese warlord guilty of committing a massacre in the village of Bogoro in eastern Congo in 2003. 

Katanga was found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity. The ICC acquitted him on charges of rape, sexual slavery or using child soldiers. Since he had already spent seven years in the ICC detention center, Katanga will be released in 2019.
