Dadji Rahamata Ahmat Mahamat: The courage to demand justice
The last time she saw her father was on 28 May 1987, when "men (allegedly) sent by the Chadian President", Hissène Habré, came to arrest him and her two older brothers, aged 20 and 17 respectively. Rahamata was two years old and this difficult period in her life has made her both a witness to and a victim of human rights violations. It has also made her an activist standing up for justice, a woman committed to defending her own rights and those of others.
