La tenue du procès de Hissein Habré devant les Chambres africaines extraordinaires fut l’aboutissement d’une lutte acharnée menée par les victimes du régime de l’ancien président tchadien et par la société civile tchadienne et internationale.

Ouvert le 20 juillet 2015 à Dakar, le procès a connu une interruption de 45 jours avant de reprendre le 7 septembre avec les auditions des témoins qui se sont poursuivies jusqu’au 15 décembre. Le premier chapitre de ce procès historique s’est clos le 11 février 2016 avec les plaidoiries de la défense et des parties civiles et le réquisitoire final du parquet.

TrustAfrica, en collaboration avec le groupe de recherche Thinking Africa, s’est approchée des différentes parties prenantes à ce procès afin de recueillir leur avis sur la signification et la portée de cette péripétie judiciaire inédite en Afrique.

Veuillez trouverez ci-dessous l’ensemble des entretiens qui ont été réalisées en ce sens.

Arusha, March 9th, 2016 - TrustAfrica and the Coalition for an Effective African Court (CEAC) convened African civil society from across the continent in Arusha from March 8th to 9th 2016, to promote their engagement with the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights (AcHPR).

Africa has indeed played a pioneering role in the establishment of courts with international criminal jurisdiction, spearheaded by civil society advocacy and the independent contributions of a number of governments. While AU initiatives place decision and policy makers at the center of discussions on ICJ, they also recognize the role played by African civil society in the development of ICJ practice in Africa. The meeting sought to distill best practices in terms of victims’ participation in Africa in order to advance victims’ rights and access to justice through the African Charter establishing the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights.
