Roger Lumbala Tshitenga will be tried in France for his alleged complicity in crimes against humanity

Today, the Paris Court of Appeal confirmed the indictment of warlord Roger Lumbala Tshitenga for complicity in crimes against humanity. He is accused of having committed crimes including murder, torture, rape, pillage and enslavement, including sexual slavery, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) between 2002 and 2003. This decision is a further step towards justice for survivors of mass atrocities in the DRC.

Clooney Foundation for Justice, TRIAL International, Minority Rights Group, and the DRC-based NGO Justice Plus, all admitted as civil parties, have collaborated throughout the investigation to identify and support Congolese communities, victims, and survivors who are calling for justice and reparations for the crimes they suffered and were willing to share their account with French judicial authorities.
