A day after President Yoweri Museveni offered amnesty to Lord's Resistance Army leader, Joseph Kony, the International Criminal Court in The Hague has reminded Uganda of its obligation to hand over Kony and his commanders for prosecution at the world court.
Christian Palme, spokesman for the ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, said the court expects that the three countries which are involved in the rebel conflict should arrest the rebel leaders.
Uganda, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo have been charged with assisting in the arrest of Joseph Kony and his four commanders; Vincent Otti, Okot Odhiambo, Raska Lukwiya and Dominic Ongwen.
Palme said the three countries have signed and ratified the ICC treaty and are expected to comply with its requirements.
