EX-CHAD PRIME MINISTER ARRESTED ON FRAUD ALLEGATIONS

On 2nd December, News 24 reported that Kalzeube Pahimi Deubet, a Chadian minister who served as the country’s premier from 2013-16 had been arrested.  The article notes that the Chad President, who has governed the poor, oil-rich state since 1990, last year vowed to crack down on entrenched graft, and that the landlocked country has a history of political violence and corruption – being ranked 165th out of 180 countries in Transparency International’s 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index.
