LRA-affected areas

31 March 2008

Mediators announced that the signing of a final peace agreement between the LRA and the Ugandan goverment, scheduled for 3 April, would be postponed because LRA leader, Joseph Kony, had been taken ill and could not attend.

Week of 17 March 2008

LRA leader Joseph Kony was reported to have relocated from his base in the jungle in the DRC to the Central African Republic. This development was perceived by some Council members as a negotiating maneuver.

12 March 2008

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni stated during a visit to London that the prevailing view in his country was a preference for pursuing alternatives to trials by the ICC in The Hague against the LRA indictees.

10 March 2008

A delegation from the LRA met with officials of the ICC Registry in The Hague to discuss legal procedural issues in regard to the LRA members facing the Court’s arrest warrants. The prosecutor had refused to meet the previous week with the same delegation which, reportedly, wanted then to press for getting the warrants somehow “lifted.”
