Ngudjolo Chui released following acquittal in second ICC trial.

On 21 December 2012, the ICC released Congolese militia leader Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui from detention in The Hague. During ICC proceedings, Mr. Ngudjolo Chui was detained at the ICC Detention Centre located within a Dutch prison complex in Scheveningen – on the outskirts of The Hague (Netherlands). The release follows from his acquittal  of all charges of alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Court’s second trial. While the ICC prosecutor has appealed  the verdict, the Appeals Chamber has decided  that Ngudjolo Chui will not remain in detention during the appeals phase. Nevertheless, he is to remain temporarily in the Netherlands until a travel ban imposed by the United Nations is lifted. He has expressed a desire to return to the DRC if the security situation permits him.

Mr. Matheiu Ngudjolo Chui
