Lubanga case

ICC Appeals Chamber to deliver judgment regarding Decision Setting the Size of the Reparations Award on 18 July 2019

The Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) will deliver its Judgment on the appeals against Trial Chamber II’s Decision Setting the Size of the Reparations Award for which Thomas Lubanga Dyilo is Liable during a public hearing on 18 July 2019 at 09h30 (The Hague local time) at the seat of the Court in The Hague (The Netherlands).

On 15 December 2017, Trial Chamber II issued a decision setting the amount of Thomas Lubanga Dyilo’s liability for collective reparations at USD 10,000,000. The decision completed the Order for Reparations of 3 March 2015 in the Lubanga case, which awarded collective reparations to the victims of the war crimes committed by Mr Lubanga, namely: conscripting and enlisting children under the age of 15 into an armed group (Union des patriotes congolais/Forces patriotiques pour la libération du Congo) and using them to participate actively in hostilities.

This decision was subsequently appealed by the legal representatives of the V01 group of victims and Mr Thomas Lubanga Dyilo.
