(The Guardian) – On the outskirts of The Hague, behind battlements, huge walls and the bars of a small, neat cell in Scheveningen prison stands a notorious former militiaman from northern Uganda called Dominic Ongwen. The 35-year-old was one of the most feared leaders of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a violent cult blamed for the deaths of around 100,000 people and the abduction of 60,000 children. Few expected Ongwen’s 20-year LRA “career” – which took in rape, massacres and abductions – to end in detention in a Dutch prison. But Ongwen gave himself up to soldiers in the Central African Republic last year and, after being passed to US troops, was brought to the international criminal court (ICC) in The Hague.
