Filmed for Human Right Watch in Dakar
Published on Jul 27, 2015
(Dakar, July 24, 2015) –The long-awaited trial of Hissène Habré, was adjourned almost as soon as it was opened, as an outburst from the former dictator of Chad caused a scene in the courtroom. The video shows judicial officers taking Habré away for creating a disturbance on the first day of the trial, July 20, 2015. On the second day of the trial, after Habre’s lawyers refused to participate in the hearing at their client’s request, the court then adjourned the trial until September 7 to give time for new court-appointed lawyers to prepare Habré’s defense.
