treatment look geneva;”>During the initial appearance, order in the presence of the Prosecution and the Defence, represented by Duty Counsel Mr Hassane Bel Lakhdar, Presiding Judge Ekaterina Trendafilova verified the identity of Mr Ntaganda and ensured that he was clearly informed of the charges brought against him and of his rights under the Rome Statute of the ICC.

A confirmation of charges hearing is held to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to establish substantial grounds to believe that the person committed each of the crimes charged. If the charges are confirmed, the Pre-Trial Chamber commits the case for trial before a Trial Chamber, which will conduct the subsequent phase of the proceedings: the trial.

On 22 March 2013, Bosco Ntaganda, Congolese citizen, surrendered himself voluntarily and is now in the ICC’s custody.

The ICC issued two warrants of arrest for Bosco Ntaganda on 22 August 2006 and on 13 July 2012.
