Dominic Ongwen was born in Uganda in 1975. At the age of ten he was abducted by members of the Lord´s Resistance Army (LRA), who trained him to fight against the Ugandan government. 30 years later he became the Sinia brigade’s commander—one of the most important operational units in the LRA hierarchy— and a key element to the leader of the organization, Joseph Kony. The Clinic delimits the object of study to the abductions committed only against children by the Lord’s Resistance Army. The Clinic excludes possible crimes initially considered by the OPCV. The scope of study was defined by the Clinic based on the evidence found in the statements of the witnesses and other data collected from studies in Northern Uganda.
