The International Criminal Court has upheld the war crimes conviction against the Congolese rebel leader, Bosco Ntaganda.
The former commander – who was named the Terminator because of his brutality – had appealed against his 30-year jail sentence given to him in 2019.
He was found guilty on 18 counts including murder, rape and using child soldiers and was the first person to be convicted by the court for sexual slavery.
The charges related to crimes carried out in the mineral- rich Ituri region of the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2002 and 2003. ENDS
