Documentary: Seeking Justice in the Face of Terrorism: Victims’ Voices from Mali

From June 2012 to January 2013, the northern Malian city of Gao was ruled by the Mouvement pour l’unicité et le jihad en Afrique de l’Ouest (MUJAO).

Aliou Mahamar Touré, the chief of the Islamic Police during this time, was convicted of attacks on the state, assault and criminal conspiracy, and sentenced to 10 years in prison. During the trial, several victims testified against him.

The documentary interviews two amputation victims of Aliou Mahamar Touré.

Souleymane Traoré, a 29 year old florist, used to work as a driver in Gao in 2012. He had his hand amputated after being accused of theft and of being a member of the army of Mali.

El Moctar Touré is a cousin of Mr. Touré, and was raised in the same family. He witnessed his cousin’s radicalization and had his hand amputated by him when accused of possessing weapons. El Moctar testified against him during the trial.

The documentary also features a survivor of sexual violence and how it has affected her life.
