»From the analysis of a document provided during International Criminal Law Course concerning to the prosecution and judgment of an insurgent group ex-leader from Democratic Republic of Congo, the Union of Congolese Patriot, Mr. Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, for his effective participation on war crimes, namely, the conscripting of child soldiers under the age of fifteen for his army, during the period between September 1st, 2002 and August 13th, 2003 it was clear that, during all the procedure, he wasn’t accused (and, as a consequence, not charged) for the conduct of sexual practices associated to the child soldiers conscription, in spite of has been approached by the investigator, prosecutor, witnesses and Trial Chamber.
