Uganda: Arrest Now! Joseph Kony, Vincent Otti, Okot Odhiambo and Dominic Ongwen



All persons responsible for crimes under international law committed in northern Uganda, regardless of rank, must be brought to justice, either before the ICC or before national courts, in fair trials without the death penalty.

Joseph Kony, Vincent Otti, Okot Odhiambo and Dominic Ongwen are wanted for trial at the International Criminal Court to establish their guilt or innocence concerning multiple counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes.

What can you do?

Please write to the President of the UN Security Council, urging the Security Council to clarify MONUC’s mandate and to :

  • ask it to search for and arrest anyone named under an ICC warrant, and surrender them to the Court;
  • ensure that sufficient resources are provided to MONUC.


(1) A warrant of arrest was issued also for a fifth suspect, Raska Lukwiya, who died on 12 August 2006.
