Thomas Lubanga Update

There are several articles this month reporting on the trial of Congolese Warlord Thomas Lubanga:

This trial has brought to light again the continued debate over the extent of involvement the United States is willing to have in the ICC:

I apologize the following articles are more about Angelina Jolie than the trial but keep in mind the positives here:

1. Children are testifying against Mr. Lubanga.
(There was concern earlier this year that the children were being threatened and were too frightened to testify, a natural reaction considering what they've been through)
2. The trial is moving forward.
3. It is receiving international attention.

I will continue to update you as I find out more information!
