Benchmarks for Justice for Serious Crimes in Northern Uganda

Human Rights Watch Memoranda on Justice Standards and the Juba Peace Talks

This briefing paper includes four memoranda produced by Human Rights Watch on justice issues and the Juba peace talks between May 2007 and February 2008. These memoranda explain the importance of fair, credible prosecutions for serious crimes to both accountability and a durable peace for northern Uganda. They also detail requirements of the International Criminal Court's Rome Statute and of other international standards for any domestic trials of serious crimes in Uganda, which the parties in the peace negotiations agreed to pursue in lieu of ICC trials of Lord's Resistance Army leaders.
