DR Congo Ex-Militia Leader Sentenced To Life

Democratic Republic of Congo former militia leader, Ntabo Ntaberi has been sentenced to life in prison after multiple crime charges against humanity, including mass rape.

Ntabo Ntaberi was sentenced by a military court on Monday after being convicted of murder, rape, sexual slavery and enlisting children under the age of 15. The ruling comes after 178 victims testified in a trial that lasted for two years.

In a statement released by The United Nations, the ruling was described as ‘inevitable’.

“This verdict is a source of immense hope for the many victims of the conflicts in the DRC: their suffering has been heard and recognised,” said Leila Zerrougui, head of the UN’s peacekeeping mission in DR Congo.

The Ex-Militia Leader also presided over a militia group called Nduma Defense of Congo (NDC), which had it’s operation in North Kivu’s eastern province.

Authorities first issued a warrant for Ntaberi’s arrest in January 2011 after allegedly organising raids on villages within the region a year earlier. Research also suggests that Eastern DR Congo has been conflict-ravaged due to increased political divisions and the region’s abundant mineral resources.

Reports also claim that NDC members and two other unidentified militia groups organized a raid which resulted to about 400 rape cases including a mass murder.

Following the sentence passed in Goma on Monday, Thomas Fessy, a researcher on the Country’s Human Rights Watch said, “The victims will be a little bit relieved.”
