SUBJECT: International Donor's Conference for the Habre trial

REF: A) State 134183

1. (SBU) The Government of Senegal had initially planned to hold a
donor's conference for a future trial of former Chadian dictator
Hissene Habre on September 17 with Minister of Foreign Affairs Gadio
and Minister of Justice Sy chairing it. That plan was abandoned and
no new dates have been determined. Post has been told by contacts
at the Presidency that the conference might be held after the end of
Ramadan. With both President Wade and Foreign Minister Gadio
attending the United Nations General Assembly, nobody in the
Senegalese government will commit to a date or even confirm if the
conference will be held.
