UN experts Michael Sharp and Jada Catalan were murdered
The convicts were sentenced to death but they will serve life sentences as Congo has banned the death penalty since 2003. Michael Sharp of the US and Jaida Catalan of Sweden were murdered on March 12, 2017 in Kasai Central Province when they were on tour with representatives of Kamvina Nsapu, a militia operating in the region. These two UN experts were investigating the violence in the butchery on behalf of the Security Council. This murder case was in a lot of headlines at that time.
