Habré's victims worry that they won't see a penny of the reparations funds

Friday, May 26, 2017 - 04:46

Clément Abaifouta: “Forgiveness does not come easy after this kind of suffering, but we are working on it.”

Friday, April 28, 2017 - 11:18

Clément Abaifouta is the quintessential survivor. In July 1985, he was arrested by Hissène Habré’s dreaded Documentation and Security Directorate (DDS) just as he was about to leave Chad for further studies in Germany. He would spend the next four years enduring harsh conditions in detention on top of which he was forced to bury fellow detainees in mass graves just outside N’Djamena. In all, Abaifouta believes he buried up to 500 fellow detainees. Abaifouta recently participated in a Q and A session after the airing of the film “The Dictator Hunter”. A portion of that discussion, lightly edited for clarity, has been reproduced here as part of Justice Hub’s #MyJustice series.

It’s a foreboding title - ‘The World in Crisis’ - but relevant. The subjects covered by the International Bar Association’s (IBA) Annual Conference on International Criminal Law were refugees, peace versus justice after conflict, how wars are being funded through trafficking in antiquities and people and money laundering, and immunity from prosecutions.
