Hissène Habré was the president of Chad from 1982 until he was deposed in 1990. He has been living in exile in Senegal since 1990. He was indicted there in 2000 and is under house arrest at the close watch of elite Senegalese armed forces.

During more than two decades of exile, Habré has been the target of numerous parties seeking justice for crimes against humanity, torture and war crimes allegedly committed by him in Chad during his period in office, with recourse sought in a multitude of regional, national and international tribunals.
