Nearly 6 million people have died in Congo since 1996, half of them children 5 yrs old or
younger and hundreds of thousands of women have been gang-raped while armed
groups responsible for these crimes go unpunished.
We, concerned citizens around the world demand MONUC and government of DR Congo
to take concrete actions to arrest Bosco Ntaganda wanted by the International Criminal
Court (ICC) for war crimes. MONUC is currently the largest UN peacekeeping mission in
the world with more than 17,600 uniformed personnel from 58 countries with and annual
budget of more than $1bn.
In April 2008, the International Criminal Court (ICC) unsealed the warrant of arrest
against Mr. NTAGANDA which was first issued on 22 August 2006 by Pre-Trial Chamber I.
The Chamber concluded that there were reasonable grounds to believe that from July
2002 to end of December 2003, Mr. NTAGANDA had played an essential role in enlisting
and conscripting children under the age of fifteen years into the FPLC and using them to
participate actively in hostilities.
Près de 6 millions de personnes sont mortes au Congo depuis 1996, la moitié sont
des enfants de 5 ans ou moins et des centaines de milliers de femmes ont été
violées alors que les groupes armés responsables de ces crimes restent impunis.
Nous, citoyens concernés à travers le monde demandons au Government de la RD
Congo et à la MONUC de prendre des mesures concrètes pour arrêter Bosco
