In Agadez, Niger, as elsewhere, there are police officers and court hearings. But alongside this, another judicial system exists, living heritage of a muslim tradition.
The 'Cadi' is a judge of the peace who uses the Koran as his reference. 'Cadi' court hearings are scenes where a whole society is represented in a magnificent and moving way. They also offer the opportunity to take a closer look at muslim lifestyles, freed of clichés and trivialities.
