A former Congolese vice-president becomes the most senior political leader ever to face judgment before the International Criminal Court Monday, when judges rule on whether he committed war crimes in the Central African Republic (CAR).The ICC's prosecutors say Bemba knew, or should have known that his MLC soldiers were committing crimes.The trial began in 2010 but was delayed when, three years in, prosecutors claimed to have uncovered evidence of a conspiracy by Bemba and his lawyer to fabricate exonerating evidence. Five people, including Bemba, were charged in the resulting witness tampering case, which continues.
