(HRW) – The first major International Criminal Court (ICC) hearing for a Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) leader is an important step for accountability for grave crimes committed in northern Uganda, Human Rights Watch said today. The confirmation of charges for Dominic Ongwen, a one-time child soldier who became a senior LRA commander, will begin on January 21, 2016, in The Hague and is anticipated to last five days. At the proceeding, ICC judges will determine if the prosecutor has enough evidence for the case to go to trial.
