Human Rights Watch has documented atrocities by troops under General Bosco Ntaganda’s command for over 10 years. This film was made in September 2011 prior to him giving himself up to the ICC in the Hague, where he is now awaiting trial.
Ntaganda is wanted by the International Criminal Court since 2006 for allegedly committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in northeastern Congo in 2002 and 2003, including recruiting and using child soldiers, murder, rape and sexual slavery, and persecution. A former leader of the Rwanda-backed rebel group National Congress for the Defense of the People, in 2009 Ntaganda and his soldiers were integrated into the Congolese army as part of a peace agreement. In 2012, Ntaganda initially lead a mutiny, and he and his forces joined with other rebels to form a new armed group, M23, which battled Congolese and UN troops in eastern Congo until peace talks began in December.
