The head of the International Crimes Division of the High Court Justice Moses Mukiibi wants government to produce more ex-combatants of the Lord’s Resistance Army for trial at the war crimes court.
Justice Mukiibi says those who benefited from Amnesty are not obscured from prosecution at the International Crimes Division of the High Court following the 2012 Constitutional Court interpretation.
Justice Mukiibi says by favoring national peace over prosecution, government is denying many victims of the Lord’s Resistance Army conflict in Northern Uganda justice.
Justice Mukiibi made the appeal while launching a User Guide to the International Crimes’ Division of the High Court from the seat of the Court in Kololo today that will aid public awareness; he also used the same occasion to announce his retirement from the Court in August this year.
Justice Mukiibi will be remembered for amongst others presiding over the trial of the 2010 terrorism suspects arrested for the Kampala twin bombing at the Ethiopian Restaurant in Makindye Division and Lugogo Rugby Grounds which claimed 76 lives and left scores injured.
