Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court have accused Congolese former rebel commander Bosco Ntaganda of trying to derail his war crimes trial by tampering with key witnesses.In September, he went on an unprecedented hunger strike for two weeks saying he was "ready to die" to protest strict visitor restrictions imposed in him out of fears he may tamper with witnesses.At the time, he said the prosecutors had produced no evidence that he was interfering with witnesses.In delivering the guilty verdict, presiding judge Bertram Schmitt said the tribunal aimed to send "a clear message that the court" would not accept the bribing of witnesses.
