The initial appearance of Dominic Ongwen before the single Judge of Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court (ICC), treatment http://citybreakguide.ro/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module-posts.php Judge Ekaterina Trendafilova, visit this http://denafilmax.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/myaccount/navigation.php is scheduled for Monday, http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-includes/post-thumbnail-template.php 26 January 2015, at 14:00 (The Hague local time).

Ongwen was transferred to the ICC on 20 January 2015 following an arrest warrant issued by the Court on 8 July 2005 for crimes against humanity and war crimes.

He surrendered to Seleka rebels in Central African Republic (CAR) early this year before being handed to U.S. Special Forces who are conducting joint operations with Ugandan troops in the poor country against the rebels.

The court on Wednesday night announced that during the initial appearance hearing, the single Judge will verify the identity of the suspect and the language in which he is able to follow the proceedings.

He will be informed of the charges against him.

Ongwen was the alleged Brigade Commander of the Sinia Brigade of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) which is thought to have committed heinous atrocities in Northern Uganda, DRC, and CAR.

On 8 July 2005, ICC Judges issued an arrest warrant against Mr Ongwen for three counts of crimes against humanity (murder; enslavement; inhumane acts of inflicting serious bodily injury and suffering) and four counts of war crimes (murder; cruel treatment of civilians; intentionally directing an attack against a civilian population; pillaging) allegedly committed in 2004 within the context of the situation in Uganda.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon this week welcomed Ongwen’s transfer to the ICC, as well as his surrender on 6 January in the Central African Republic.

Ban highlighted that Ongwen’s transfer marks an ‘important milestone in accountability,’ with the first LRA commander being brought before the Court.

“It is a step forward in efforts to bring justice to the thousands of victims of LRA violence in Uganda, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and CAR [Central African Republic] over the past 28 years,” the UN chief said.

The Secretary-General welcomed the cooperation among the Governments of the CAR, Uganda, the United States, Belgium and the Netherlands, and the support provided by the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the CAR (MINUSCA), the African Union Regional Task Force (AU-RTF) and the ICC in facilitating the expeditious transfer of Mr. Ongwen to The Hague.

Mr. Ban also paid tribute to the efforts of the AU-RTF and urged all troop-contributing countries of the region to remain committed to ending the threat posed by the LRA and bringing to justice LRA leader Joseph Kony.

He called on the LRA to immediately disarm.

We want Kony

ICC Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda said Ongwen’s transfer “brings us one step closer to ending the LRA’s reign of terror in the African Great Lakes region,” adding, “ For more than a quarter of a century, the LRA under Joseph Kony and his high command, that includes Ongwen, have terrorised the people of Northern Uganda and neighbouring countries.”

She said the LRA has reportedly killed tens of thousands and displaced millions of people; terrorised civilians, abducted children and forced them to kill and serve as sex slaves.

“They have hacked off limbs and horribly disfigured men, women and children. In so doing, the LRA has committed unimaginable crimes against humanity and war crimes,” said Bensouda.

“My investigation demonstrates that Dominic Ongwen served as a high ranking commander within the LRA and that he is amongst those who bear the greatest responsibility for crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC.  His transfer to the Court’s custody sends a firm and unequivocal message that no matter how long it will take, the Office of the Prosecutor will not stop until the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community are prosecuted and face justice for their heinous crimes.”

She urged all others that still remain within LRA ranks to abandon violence; stop committing crimes, and follow the bold steps of others before you.

“I also encourage all States to renew and refocus efforts to secure the arrest of Joseph Kony as well as all other ICC fugitives. The victims of their crimes have waited far too long and deserve to see justice done.”
