CAR ‘militia leaders’ plead not guilty to war crimes at ICC trial
Al Jazeera, 17 Feb 2021
Two former "Anti-balaka" militia leaders from the Central African Republic have rejected all charges against them at an International Criminal Court (ICC) trial on Tuesday.
Patrice-Edouard Ngaissona, who prosecutors say was a senior leader of the group in 2013 and 2014 and Alfred Yekatom, also known as Rambo, pleaded not guilty to charges relating to attacks on Muslim civilians.
More than 1,400 victims are expected to take part in this trial.
