Hissen Habre | Spécial Investigation | Canal+

A behind-the-scenes investigation into the hunt for a dictator. On September 16 2008, victims filed charges against Hissen Habre, the former president of Chad. They demand that he should be tried for crimes against humanity in Dakar in Senegal, where the ex-dictator has been taking refuge since 1990. A former Head of State put on trial in Africa for his crimes would be a historical first. This battle against impunity has been waged for years by survivors of the dictatorship assisted by lawyers and the upholders of human rights.
