Public Prosecutor v. Hissène Habré: HEARING REPORT NO. 36 OF NOVEMBER 9, 2015
Today’s hearing was significantly delayed due to the Court of Repression of Illicit Enrichment
(CREI) rendering its ruling on the State of Senegal v. Tahibou Ndiaye et al. case. The hearing then
started at 10:57 a.m. with one single witness, Abaifouta Clement, Chairman of the Association of
the Victims of the Hissène Habré Regime’s Crimes (AVCRHH) appearing before the court. This
witness was being heard in relation to the repression of political opponents during Habré’s reign.
Clement Abaifouta is considered by most witnesses who appeared before the extraordinary African
Chambers as the main gravedigger of the Documentation and Security Directorate (DDS).
