Anonymous “LRA” radio witness questioned by Ongwen’s lawyers

27 January 2017 - 18:01

Two days this past week saw the conclusion of the testimony of a prosecution witness in the case against Dominic Ongwen of a man who says he was a radio controller within the Lord’s Resistance Army up till about 12 years ago.

On Wednesday, lawyers from the ICC’s Office of the Prosecutor finished their questioning of the witness, a process which began two days before on Monday. This was followed by him being cross-examined by Dominic Ongwen’s lawyer Krispus Odongo for the rest of the day. As part of the ICC’s witness protection measures, several moments during the hearing took place under what is called “closed or private session”. It is during these times that questions or responses that may reveal the identity of the witness or other sensitive information is obscured from the public.

As usual, we live tweeted what took place on this day. Below are some reactions from us and other people watching the hearing on Wednesday.

Thursday saw the continuation of the cross-examination of the same witness by Ongwen’s lawyer. Like the day before, much of the day was subjected to private sessions, although the Presiding Judge Bertram Schmitt did request that they be minimised.


The trial continued on Friday with the introduction of a new prosecution witness.
