In May 2012, one of the Lord"s Resistance Army"s top military strategists and commander, Caesar Acellam, was captured by Ugandan soldiers near the Central African Republic"s border with Congo. Although Acellam is not one of those indicted along with Joseph Kony for crimes against humanity, his capture will provide valuable intelligence, which will, in turn, bring Kony one step closer to judgment before the International Criminal Court.
