Katanga/Ngudjolo trial begins

With all the pre-trial questions about whether the ICC had the jurisdiction over Katanga now cleared up, the trial of DRC warlords, Germain Katanga and Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui, has begun in The Hague this week. You can watch it through the court’s webstream.

At yesterday’s opening, both Katanga and Ngudjolo plead not guilty to seven counts of war crimes and three counts crimes against humanity that the prosecution has charged them with the joint commission of during the 2003 attack on Bogoro in Ituri.
