On September 7th, 2015, former Chadian President, Hissène Habré, returns to court to face trial on charges of crimes against humanity, war crimes and torture. The alleged crimes were committed during his time in power from 1982 to 1990. An estimated 40,000 people are reported to have died or disappeared under his regime.

Hissène Habré fell from power after a military coup in 1990. He has been living in exile in Senegal since December 1990. His trial before the Extraordinary African Chambers in the Senegalese courts crowns a hard-won battle led by victims’ groups and human rights activists all over the world. This is no small performance. It took over 20 years to bring this case before the Senegalese courts to hold Habré accountable for the crimes perpetrated under his rule.
