Rebel LRA commander to be handed to ICC – Uganda

14 January 2015, 08:10

Kampala - A senior Lord's Resistance Army commander who surrendered last week to the US military in the Central African Republic (CAR) will be handed over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for trial, a Ugandan army spokesperson said on Tuesday.

The LRA first rose up against Uganda in the late 1980s, gaining a reputation for massacres and mutilating victims. Ongwen is wanted by the ICC for crimes against humanity.

"It has been finally decided that Dominic Ongwen will be tried at The Hague. Victims will get justice as much as Ongwen. Arrangements for his transfer are being made and it will be CAR that will transfer him," spokesman Paddy Ankunda told Reuters.
