“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.

I think it is high time that ICC should do some work in Africa. They critic the court so that they can continue with their malpractices.

Great job Justice Hub. This case represents an important precedent. I like this chronological and historical analysis of the legal concept of 'command responsibility' which is finally laurelled in article 28 of the Rome Statute. Thumbs up!
