Dominic Ongwen

The trial of Dominic Ongwen proceeded on Tuesday August 22 with the conclusion of the cross-examination testimony of the 27th Prosecution witness, Witness P-0245.

Today’s cross-examination conducted by Defence Lawyer Thomas Obhof was mostly held in private session.

In open session, the witness was asked about the attacks in Lukodi, Palaro and Odek and described that the attack in Palaro was a “tough fight” where many UPDF soldiers were killed.

Following the morning break, Obhof asked the witness about the Trinkle and Sinia Brigade.

“Trinkle brigade was established among the escorts of Kony and expanded but Sinia was respected as the first brigade in military hierarchy,” said Witness P-0245.

Before adjourning the Prosecution briefly re-examined the witness in private session.

The trial will resume on Monday September 11 with the beginning of the testimony of the 28th Prosecution witness.
