Hissène Habré: la traque d’un dictateur

“Hissène Habré: la traque d’un dictateur”

Screened on 18 March 2009

Runtime: 55′

On September 16 2008, a group of victims filed a complaint charging the former dictator of Chad Hissène Habré with crimes against humanity and torture. They are seeking to bring him to trial in Senegal, where he has lived in exile since 1990. It would be the first time that a former African head of state has been tried in another African country. The complaint is the fruit of 10 years of work by the victims, supported by a group of lawyers and activists. Journalist Florent Chevolleau follows Reed Brody, an American lawyer, as he builds the legal and political case against Habré.

The screening was followed by a discussion with Reed Brody, Counsel and Spokesperson for Human Rights Watch.
