Interesting dilemma in Uganda:
http://www.economist.com/world/afric...splaystory.cfm?story_id=E1_RDVRPPD

"IT HAS been presented as a classic struggle of peace versus justice. Talks aimed at ending one of Africa's longest and most savage civil wars are on the verge of collapse as the leaders of Uganda's rebel Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) insist that there can be no peace deal unless the International Criminal Court (ICC) drops its indictments against four of their number. The court remains adamant that there can be no impunity for crimes against humanity. "

"For the past 20 years, the LRA has hacked and raped its way through northern Uganda, abducting thousands of children to serve as fighters and sex slaves and forcing nearly 2m terrorised Acholis to flee their homes for the relative safety of overcrowded, disease-ridden government camps. Unable to destroy the rebels by armed force or to lure them in from the bush with promises of amnesty, Uganda's government referred the conflict in January 2004 to the ICC for investigation. A year ago the court, set up in 2002, issued its first indictments for war crimes and crimes against humanity against Joseph Kony, the LRA's holy-spirit-possessed leader, and four of his henchmen"

"Local leaders protested that this would mean the end of the peace process that Betty Bigombe, a former Ugandan government minister, had been trying to broker for years."
