Former Lord’s Resistance Army-LRA rebel commander Thomas Kwoyelo, has requested to be transferred from Luzira Maximum Prison to Gulu prison.

His lawyer Evans Ochieng, told the court on Monday that the suspect wants to serve his remand near home to enable his family members to have ease in visiting him.

The former warlord made the request while appearing before a panel of four justices of the ICD presiding over his trial hearing that has been ongoing at the Gulu High Court circuit since last week.

Kwoyelo has been in detention at Luzira Maximum Prison and is facing 93 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, charges allegedly committed between 1993 and 2005, in Pabbo sub county, Amuru district.
