Ongweng should be freed b'se the government of Uganda is the one to be responsible for Ongwen's crimes.Why didn't they protect Ongwen who had no where to run for rescue or safety.there only work is to keep their family members and realatives.So in Uganda if you don't bread they will not give you butter.

A former child soldier who was abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army recounts his experiences fighting for eight years with the rebels. When he managed to escape, he was forgiven by his community, and he believes Dominic Ongwen should be forgiven too.

if the haegue is be so serious to grand trial or arrest warrant , then most of the African leaders are all to be in custody at in Netherland. and this is why some of them fear to leave power when their terms end

Would you like to be reminded that the LRA was not pushed out of Uganda in 2009 as by this time Peace Talks between the LRA had collapsed, by this time its possible that the LRA were either in DR Congo or some parts of CAR..!!!

Opinion: ICC shouldn’t use witness intimidation as scapegoat for Ogwen prosecution

Dominic Ongwen at the ICC
Wednesday, July 1, 2015 - 09:25

A contributor from Uganda is amused and puzzled by the warning issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) about witness intimidation and interference in the north of his country. The warning comes ahead of the eagerly awaited trial of Dominic Ongwen, the former commander of the notorious Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).

Ongwen's command under the LRA led to the killing of many people in northern uganda, parts of DRC and Central Africa where he surrendered from, though he claims to have been abducted at the age of 14 years, that is not an excuse, since the President of Uganda handed him to ICC, let them do what they are supposed to because Ongwen did not only kill people in uganda but also other parts of Africa.

Yes, he sat at the back and listened through the whole session. Judge made sure the counsels spoke slowly in order to make the translation to Acholi as easy as possible for the translators.

Why the ICC won't prosecute Museveni

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni
Wednesday, March 18, 2015 - 12:02

Anyone who has spoken to the citizens of northern Uganda will know that atrocities were perpetrated by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and the government of Uganda. So why is the ICC only going after the LRA?
