On March 14, 2012 the International Criminal Court's first trial, of former Congolese rebel leader Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, will declare a verdict. Lubanga is accused of committing war crimes, including the recruitment of child soldiers in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

In this video, Bukeni speaks with Madeleine, a former child soldier of the eastern DRC who he demobilized when she was 15 and then adopted. In 2007, she testified at the UN to share her experiences as a child soldier. http://youtu.be/hNnXGV4KjEw

Bukeni and Madeleine discuss their hopes for the outcome of the Lubanga trial and hopes justice will be served for child soldiers everywhere.

WITNESS staff member, Bukeni Waruzi, originally from the eastern DRC and a long-time human rights advocate is at The Hague to hear the verdict. He will be available for a Q&A with journalists following the verdict at 11am EDT details are here: http://www.witness.org/about-us/media...
