Both the Prosecution and Judges remained silent on Kwoyelo’s concerns about the name Latoni and instead asked him to proceed with his statements.

The International Crimes Division of the High Court is being presided over by the four-member panel of justices led by Michael Elubu, Duncan Gaswaga, Stephen Mubiru and alternate Judge Dr. Andrew Bashaija.

Kwoyelo is facing 78 counts on killing civilians, rape and aggravated robbery among others during the two decades of the LRA led insurgency in northern Uganda.

Kwoyelo whose trial commenced in September 2018 has been in custody at Luzira Maximum Prison since 2009 after being captured by the Ugandan Army in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in March same year.
