Lubanga sentence, reparations tomorrow

The delivery of sentence and reparations order will be tomorrow for Thomas Lubanga Dyilo (left), erstwhile militia leader from the Democratic Republic of Congo, about whose International Criminal Court prosecution we've frequently posted. On March 14, Lubanga was found guilty of conscripting and enlisting children under the age of 15 and using them to participate in hostilities. (photo courtesy of the ICC's webpage on the case)
The open-court hearing before Trial Chamber I will begin at 9:30 a.m. Hague time (3:30 a.m. New York time).
You can watch the session live, in English or French, here.
