3 Apr, 2010 | NPWJ in the News

The Human Rights Network – Uganda (HURINET-U), No Peace Without Justice (NPWJ) and the Ugandan Coalition on the International Criminal Court (UCICC), with the support of the Royal Danish Embassy in Kampala and in cooperation with the Government of Uganda, organised the third visit to Uganda by representatives of State Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) from 29 March to 2 April 2010.

During the five-day visit in Kampala and Soroti (Eastern Uganda), representatives of Argentina, Djibouti, Uganda and Venezuela met with victims, civil society organisations and representatives of the Ugandan Government and Parliament, as well as international organisations working in Uganda.

The visit forms part of a broader campaign by HURINET-U, NPWJ and UCICC to create avenues of engagement between ICC State party delegates and victims and affected communities in Uganda, and to highlight the importance of the Review Conference of the ICC, which will be held in Kampala in May-June 2010.
