Bosco Ntaganda

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent reports he has received on (a) Bosco Ntaganda’s indictment by the International Criminal Court and (b) Bosco Ntaganda’s recent dealings with the authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo. (256523)

[holding answer 12 February 2009]: The warrant unsealed by the International Criminal Court in 2008 for the arrest of Bosco Ntaganda remains outstanding. Mr. Ntaganda has been the de facto leader of the rebel National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP) militia in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since the arrest of Laurent Nkunda in January 2009. We understand the DRC Government is co-operating with Ntaganda as part of the process to integrate CNDP members into the Congolese armed forces.
