Back from his visit to this isolated town in the south-eastern province of Katanga, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Colonel Mbombo Nzadi seems satisfied. He considers that "it was essential for us to speak to the people on the ground and better understand the circumstances" and therefore that the visit by the tribunal "has helped".

On July 13, the High Military Court in Kinshasa sentenced the Democratic Republic of Congo to pay reparations ranging from USD 500 to USD 25,000 to victims of war crimes committed by the Armed Forces of Congo in Ankoro, northern Katanga, in November 2002 [IJT-16]. The Congolese human rights organization ASADHO says it is "partially satisfied with this decision, in that it has increased the modest sums" accorded by the Katanga Military Court on December 20, 2004.
