Evidence and Methods is what Ugandans really needed. Very many people are living in ignorance and make very many mistakes because of lack of access to information and data. I applause your Mr. Katagaya and friends for the initiative.

Tragic perpetrators and imperfect victims

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 14:38
By Dr. Mark A. Drumbl
 
It is easy to assume that only ‘evil’ people commit atrocity. And it’s equally easy to imagine all victims as ‘good’ or ‘innocent’. But the reality is far more complex.

By Lino Owor Ogora
 
Uganda is currently the focus of two international criminal trials: that of Thomas Kwoyelo before the International Crimes Division (ICD) in Uganda, and Dominic Ongwen before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Netherlands. Both Kwoyelo and Ongwen are charged with committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in northern Uganda while in the service of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
