War Crimes: DR Congo Ex-Warlord Sheka Bags Life In Prison

 

 

 

A former militia leader in the Democratic Republic of Congo was sentenced on Monday to life in prison for war crimes and mass rape, in a decision hailed by the United Nations.

Ntabo Ntaberi Sheka was convicted of “murder, rape, sexual slavery, enlisting children under 15 years old,” a decade ago, a military court ruled.

The UN representative in DR Congo, Leila Zerrougui, said the ruling showed “impunity is not inevitable”.
