Practice Relating to Rule 93. Rape and Other Forms of Sexual Violence
Chad’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states that women “must not be raped or forced into prostitution or be subjected to any form of indecent assault”.
The manual further states: “Children also deserve special respect. They must therefore be protected against any form of indecent assault.”
In 2007, in its initial report to the Committee against Torture, Chad stated:
Harmful traditional practices and the lessons drawn from the torture practised by President Habré’s political police, which spared no organ of the human body, were the inspiration for the promulgation of Act No. 6/PR/2002 of 15 April 2002 on the promotion of reproductive health, article 9 of which states that:
All persons have the right not to be subjected to torture and to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of their body in general and of their reproductive organs in particular. All forms of violence such as female genital mutilation (FGM), early marriage, domestic violence and sexual abuse of a human being are prohibited.
