Uganda has threatened to pull its forces out of all peacekeeping operations in Africa, including in war-torn Somalia, if the U.N. officially publishes the experts' report. It remains to be seen if Uganda will act on this threat, but some analysts believe this will not be the case.
The U.N. experts say their indictment of Uganda is the result of ten investigative expeditions to the east African country and multiple interviews with government officials, diplomats, military officials, intelligence officials, and other knowledgeable sources. The report says M23 rebels are recruiting in Uganda with the support of Ugandan officials and that the rebels have procured weapons and ammunition from Ugandan army officers.
