Conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have resulted in the commission of the worst and most serious crimes of international law, including massacres and sexual violence on a large scale. However so far very few cases have been brought to justice. This chapter examines the challenges faced by Congolese courts in addressing these crimes and discusses alternatives to Congolese military justice for the punishment of serious international crimes.
