Appeals Chamber confirms ICC jurisdiction over Ntaganda war crimes cases

Journalists for Justice / 27 June 2017

 Today, Thursday 15 June 2017, the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court ("ICC" or "Court") delivered in a public hearing its judgment rejecting the appeal of Mr Ntaganda against the decision of Trial Chamber VI which found<https://www.icc-cpi.int/Pages/item.aspx?name=PR1267> that it has jurisdiction over counts 6 and 9 (alleged war crimes of rape and sexual slavery of child soldiers).

The Trial Chamber decision of 3 January 2017 relates only to the Chamber's authority to adjudicate the alleged conduct and is without prejudice to the guilt or innocence of the accused which will be determined only at the end of the trial. The Defence appealed the decision arguing that the war crimes of rape and sexual slavery could not pertain to acts committed by members of an armed group.
