🇨🇩 ICC orders release of DR Congo ‘warlord’ Bemba | Al Jazeera English

There is anger and joy in Central Africa over the release from prison of a convicted warlord.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) ordered the interim release “under specific conditions” of Jean-Pierre Bemba, 55, the former vice president of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), who was found guilty in June 2016 of atrocities committed by troops under his control in the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR).

But last week, an appeals court judge said Bemba could not be held criminally responsible for their crimes.
