Former LRA commander Thomas Kwoyelo is appearing before the High Court division for International Crimes for a pre-trial session of several offences he allegedly committed against humanity during the 20 year northern insurgency.
He is today appearing before a single judge Lydia Mugambe. He will then on May 3rd appear before a panel of 5 high court judges for a full trial in Gulu.
Kwoyelo’s amnesty application aborted two years ago when the Supreme Court ordered that he must stand trial for murder, rape, defilement, destruction of property, recruitment of child soldiers and mutilation of human body parts.
