Share This





The South African court has pronounced judgement on the Eleven South African soldiers which have been convicted of mistreating a teenage boy during a UN peacekeeping deployment to the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to what the military told our team "FACTS ZONE MEDIA " in a statement.

That the men, who were convicted of common law assault by a military court, dragged the 17-year-old boy  into their base in southern Kasai province after he was caught allegedly stealing buckets in January some few months ago , the military said this on Monday.

After then Sixteen men were said to be originally charged under anti-torture legislation over the incident but five out of the soldiers were subsequently cleared of all charges, and the other 11 were not convicted of torture.
