ICC sentences Jean-Pierre Bemba to jail

 The International Criminal Court on Monday sentenced Congolese politician Jean-Pierre Bemba to a 300,000 euro fine and a 12 month sentence for witness tampering, but his sentence was reduced to zero due to time served.



Bemba was acquitted of war crimes on appeal in June but was convicted on the lesser charge of witness tampering during his trial.
