Rwasa may face International Criminal Court over use of child soldiers, says East African newspaper

From: The East African

A communiqué issued at the end of the meeting warned that the government would freeze FNL accounts and assets, refuse to issue visas to FNL members, deny them access to the media, revive a most-wanted list of FNL leaders, arrest them and extradite them.

This comes on the heels of a UN Security Council report that accuses the FNL of recruiting and arming child soldiers, in violation of the Rome Statute.

Officials familiar with the report told The EastAfrican that the report might lead to International Criminal Court indictments against Rwasa and other senior FNL officials.

Burundi should be firm in prosecuting those who use Children as war shield, there should not be any excuse of recruiting a Minor, a Child, and a firm penalty should be applied to give a lesson to anyone intending to do the same in the Future.

Criminals in this World are applauded,enjoy immunity from prosecution. Taking a life should not be acceptable for some individuals, Countries.Agathon Rwasa will one day face Justice, but my concern is that he is not the only Criminal still walking free.Mass Murderers can be found around the World, but the most Powerful one's do not have to worry being brought before the International Court. This is world has become almost like a jungle where only the Powerful have the right to rule and brutalise others.

May there be Peace on Earth, may People learn to love one another.
