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).

Dominic is innocent, its the ugandan gov't/ UPDF to be charged because they failed to protect Dominic( who was ten years by then) from being abducted by the LRA.

Though Ongwen is pleading not guilty at this time that he's alive, Why didnt he escape during the time of amnesty, & instead wait during war & after a defeat that he comes out under the pretex of surrendering. This then if defeated the bythen war Ongwen would not come out that today he now pretex it a "surrender"!!!

personally i have been to Lukodi massacre site and its clear that the community do not wish to open an old wound of 11 years. Otherwise Ugandan government may have to answer the hard asked question by the community , 'why it failed to protect them.'

Ogwen is not to blame,coz the age at which he was abducted makes him a minor and what ever he ended up doing was out of trauma and manipulation of a child.the blame should be directed to those who captured and brain washed him.

Much as Dominic Ongwen was abducted at a tender age, why didn't he come out the time the govt of Uganda declared amnesty for all, there are some of us who are victims of the circumstance, we are left homeless, losing all the relatives in their hands, the pain cant go away, it haunts us to-date; will only feel joy if Ongwen is paid the same he did to the people of Northern Uganda!! I wish the all world would understand the pain The northern Uganda got in the hands of Ongwen, then he wouldn't be given that time of pleading guilty at whatsoever!!!

In war both sides are resposible, If true the atrocities in northern uganda were done by the LRA where was UPDF in all these? Are they trying to say that LRA was so powerful that they couldnt face them or they actually had alot to do with the masacres just to blame it on the LRA. Not forgetting that northern uganda was a condemned region.

Yesterday, I documented the commemoration of the Lukodi massacre where 54 victims were murdered and the clear message was that what happened can't be reversed and trying to think about it only hurts more. Why not deal with frameworks that will ensure non- repetition of such? I am sure going on the ground 11 years after will only be met with rude reactions from the community because they were not protected by the authority that be. Of what help will this be to the community? Do they understand your justice or they have their own?

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?

Fellow ugandans let heart the sense of analising information and a heart of jesus christ. Looking at ogwens background, he was abducted at his early age on his way to school not that he join by himself and lets think of the pain that his parents could have been in for all this years without see their abducted child. as parents who understand how would you feel.

Now if we are to look at the ugandan force a moment the head of comand as release a comand for an action you the junior has no choice to deniy and for the case of Ogwen he also had his top boss who is Kony and imajine he was abducted not join like it is always the case in Police or Army.

My prayer is that the Lord knows that Ogwen was born in a wrong location and little did he knew that one day he would do what has now graduated him to become a big criminal figure.but just like the bible Ogwen upon abduction was following the interest of the master to avoid having problem.

Inconclusion,the uganda government is also to be blame because during the war they force the rebel to act in the way they never wanted and this this attrocitices happen because the soldiers where disorganising the peace of rebels who where already in the bush why then do you have to follo someone who has decided to fine his level somewhere..

The 'Ongwen split' - victim or perpetrator?

Ugandan forces searching for LRA rebels
Monday, January 12, 2015 - 12:07

The surrender and subsequent handover to Uganda of LRA commander Dominic Ongwen last week has raised questions on justice and reparations on one of the most complex legal cases that the International Criminal Court might take on. But is Ongwen a victim or a perpetrator?
