Bosco Ntaganda

General Bosco Ntaganda has surrendered himself to be tried at The Hague.  Ntanganda is one of the International Criminal Court’s longest-standing fugitives first being sought in 2006. 

Ntaganda turned himself in to ICC staffers in Kigali on Monday.  His surrender marks the first time an indicted suspect voluntarily surrendered to the courts custody. 

He faces charges including murder, sexual slavery, rape and using child soldiers in battles in the eastern Congo region during 2002-2003.  If convicted on all charges he faces life imprison.

The court thanked the U.S. and Rwanda — neither country is an ICC member state — for their role in Ntaganda's detention.
