Senegal tribunal to try ex-Chad dictator begins

Published: 02.08.13, 22:13 / Israel News

Senegal officially launched its tribunal investigating former Chadian dictator Hissene Habre for alleged crimes against humanity on Friday, a move rights groups called a decisive turning point in the campaign to bring him to justice.


The tribunal, authorized by the African Union and approved by a vote in Senegal's parliament, marks a major step toward Africa dealing with its own alleged war criminals. Court administrator Cire Aly Ba announced the commencement of the work Friday. (AP)
