The Extraordinary African Chambers Monitor

Tribunal Dakar

On July 20th, 2015, the trial of former Chadian President Hissène Habré began before the Extraordinary African Chambers in Dakar, Senegal. Habré is accused of crimes against humanity, war crimes, and torture. The alleged crimes were committed during Habré’s regime from 1982 to 1990, when an estimated 40,000 people are reported to have died or disappeared.

 This is the first time a former African Head of State is facing justice in another African country. It is also one of the first occasions that an African court is operating under the principle of universal jurisdiction.

The Extraordinary African Chambers have the potential to demonstrate Africa’s ability to hold its former leaders to account and strike a blow against impunity on the continent. A fair, effective and transparent trial for Hissène Habré would set a precedent in the fight for justice across Africa.

After a 45-day recess, the trial resumed on September 7th, 2015 

TrustAfrica is supporting a group of Senegalese law students to monitor the trial in order to ensure there is an independent platform of informed actors who can provide accurate and timely analysis of the proceedings, and share this information with a wide audience.

Please find below links to the daily reports of the Habré trial hearings before the Extraordinary African Chambers.
