World issues Forum

James Pirtle, Seattle trial lawyer

The presentation entails the tragic story of Thomas Kwoyelo, former child soldier turned Commander in the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda. He is the first combatant to be slated for trial in the new International Crimes Division of the High Court of Uganda. Kwoyelo's defense team won his case on appeal on equal protection grounds (though the government has refused to release him). We will discuss the status of this case, moral culpability, the plight of the child soldier, and the lasting consequences on the accused, the state, and the victims of rebellion."
