Bosco Ntaganda collaborated with Lubanga as chief of military operations in the Union of Congolese Patriots’ military branch. The ICC has also issued an arrest warrant against him on war crimes charges of conscripting, enlisting and using children in hostilities in Ituri, but he remains at large. He is now a general in the Congolese army and lives and moves about freely in Goma in south-eastern Congo with little fear of arrest. Human Rights Watch has documented how Bosco Ntaganga continues to be implicated in grave international crimes.
