That this House notes that the International Criminal Court (ICC)-wanted warlord, Bosco Ntaganda, also known as the Terminator, has turned himself in to the US embassy in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda; welcomes the US decision to facilitate his transfer to the ICC; further notes that war criminals such as Sultani Makenga, Laurent Nkunda and others are still not yet indicted; supports President Obama's call for an end to impunity for M23 commanders and others who have committed serious human rights abuses; further supports Save the Congo's call to the UK Government to call on the UN Security Council to refer allegations of war crimes committed in Congo to the ICC; and therefore urges the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and the Prime Minister to put an end to impunity in Congo at the heart of the 2013 G8 policy on Africa.
