Practice Relating to Rule 150. Reparation
In 2009, during the consideration of Chad’s initial report to the Committee against Torture, a statement by the delegation of Chad was summarized by the Committee in its records as follows:
16. The government had instructed a commission comprising representatives of civil society, judges and international observes to investigate the unrest of February 2008; the commission had recommended that victims of acts of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment during those events should be compensated.
56. With regard to the events of 2 February 2008, for 48 hours N’Djamena had been entirely occupied by rebels who, as they withdrew, had attacked the population.
Chad’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states: “Civilian property requisitioned for military purposes must be handed back to the parties concerned at the end of the hostilities.”
