Albissaty Salhe Alazam, one of the leaders of the “Ca suffit” (That’s Enough) protest movement, was detained by police in the capital N’Djamena after being summoned for questioning, a spokesman for the movement said. “This state of affairs confirms the government’s desire to snuff out democratic values in Chad,” Bertrand Sohhoh Ngandjel told a press conference, held with the Chadian trade union confederation and another rights coalition named “Trop c’est trop” (Enough is Enough).
