One of his lawyers Charles Dalton Opwonya told the court that Kwoyelo would like to use the bail to support his ageing mother, wife and six children financially and emotionally. He said MP Gilbert Olanya had offered to host the accused at his residence throughout the duration of the trial.
The handwritten material was presented in an exercise book which Kwoyelo handed to his defense lawyers Caleb Alaka, Charles Dalton Opwonya and Evans Ochieng. He took moments within the courtroom to run through the writings with the lawyers, who jointly converged at the accused stand just before court resumed in the afternoon.
Solomy Awidi, a Transitional Lawyer at Refugee Law Project, says the victims shared their frustration with the trials during a documentation exercise to trace the various perspectives of communities affected by the conflict in the greater Northern Uganda held in Dzaipi and Arinyapi sub counties in Adjumani district last week.
The lead defense lawyer, Caleb Alaka, told court that they were uncomfortable proceeding with the pre-trial hearing before a judge who is not a judge in the International Crimes Division of High Court.
