He’s an online activist and father of seven. In September 2016, Tadjadine Mahamat Babouri, commonly known as Mahadine, posted videos on Facebook criticizing the Chadian government.

Within days, he was snatched off the streets, beaten and chained up for several weeks. Facing a life sentence, he is gravely ill having caught tuberculosis in prison. He needs urgent medical care. He should not lose his freedom for courageously expressing his opinion.

Tell Chad to release Mahadine without delay.
