On 6 and 7 December 2016, the trial in the case The Prosecutor v. Dominic Ongwen opened before Trial Chamber IX of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands, for 70 counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes allegedly committed in Northern Uganda. Alleged former Commander in the Sinia Brigade of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), Dominic Ongwen is accused of 70 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity related to attacks against the civilian population in the former IDP camps of Lukodi, Pajule, Odek and Abok between October 2003 and June 2004. It is further alleged that from at least 1 July 2002 until 31 December 2005, Dominic Ongwen, Joseph Kony, and the other Sinia Brigade commanders were part of a common plan to abduct women and girls in Northern Uganda that were then used as forced wives and sex slaves, tortured, raped and made to serve as domestic help. Mr. Ongwen was transferred to the Court’s custody on 21 January 2015 pursuant to an ICC warrant of arrest.
