When the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague decided that 23-year-old Germain Katanga was the person most responsible for years of carnage in northeastern Congo, a complex 10-year legal process unfolded with a budget in the millions. Militia Man explores a flawed ICC war crimes trial, as seen through the eyes of Katanga, his lawyers and a family that lost everything in a terrible massacre. It reveals a court that remains well-funded and largely unchallenged despite failing to deliver justice and adequate reparations to restart shattered lives. After serving eight years in The Hague, a shocking development awaited Katanga in Congo which raised further questions about the competence of the court.
