Agreement on Privileges and Immunities Uganda ratified the APIC on 21 January 2009.
Bilateral Immunity Agreement BIA signed June 12, 2003.
Implementing Legislation On 10 March 2010, the Ugandan Parliament passed the International Criminal Court Bill, 2006, three years after it was tabled. The Bill makes provision in Uganda’s law for the punishment of the international crimes of genocide, crime against humanity and war crimes. The suspects tried and convicted for the crimes will be liable to life imprisonment.
The Bill is also intended to enable cooperation with the ICC in the performance of its functions, including the investigation and prosecution of persons accused of having committed crimes referred to in the Rome Statute. It further provides for the arrest and surrender to the ICC of persons alleged to have committed crimes against humanity in addition to enabling the ICC to conduct proceedings in Uganda.
