Jean Bosco Ntaganda, now in custody, is the subject of arrest warrants by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and crimes against humanity. In March Ntaganda turned himself in at the US embassy in Rwanda for extradition to the International Criminal Court, and will be transferred to The Hague, according to the court's chief prosecutor.

Ntaganda was a leader of the M23 rebel group in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), former leader of the National Congress for the Defense of the People (CNDP) and of the Union of Congolese Patriots/Patriotic Forces for the Liberation of the Congo (UPC/FPLC). Ntaganda is charged with responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity for, among other acts, enlisting and conscripting children under the age of fifteen and using them to participate actively in hostilities; murder; and rape and sexual slavery.

To bring Ntaganda to justice, the United States Government is offering a reward to individuals who furnish information leading to his arrest, transfer, or conviction for war crimes or crimes against humanity.

All information regarding the identity of any informant will be kept strictly confidential.
