Senegal court says receives war crimes complaint against Chad’s Deby.


The Senegalese court trying ex-Chadian dictator Hissene Habre for atrocities has received a complaint of rights abuses against his successor, it said on Thursday.

Idriss Deby, who overthrew Habre in 1990, has been accused of “genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and torture, at the initiative of some victims”, lawyer Mbaye Jacques Ndiaye told radio station RFI.

The tribunal confirmed a case against Deby had been filed on Wednesday but refused to give further details and Ndiaye was unavailable for comment.
