(HRW) – On March 23, 2016, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court (ICC) confirmed 70 charges brought by the ICC Prosecutor against Dominic Ongwen. This decision sends the case to a trial. Dominic Ongwen is the first leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in custody at the court. The judges decided that were “substantial grounds” to believe that Ongwen was responsible for the war crimes of murder, rape, sexual slavery, torture, pillaging, and the conscription and use of children under the age of 15 to participate actively in hostilities. They also decided he could be tried for the crimes against humanity of murder,  torture, sexual slavery, rape, enslavement, forced marriage as an inhumane act, persecution, and other inhumane acts.
