Submitted by • June 8, 2020 bit.ly

The former president of Chad, Hissène Habré returned to prison in Senegal on Sunday after spending two months out of the facility.

Hissene Habre gained two months’ leave from prison, where he is serving a life sentence for crimes against humanity, as the jail is being used to hold new detainees in coronavirus quarantine.

That meant that Habre had to be granted leave from prison for some weeks for the pandemic to ease.
