Libya; Kadhafi Ordered Rapes, Joined In

As a method of terrorizing the opposition population, it is reported by the ICC that Kadhafi ordered mass rapes in Libya, and even aided in providing them with “sexual performance enhancement” drugs.  The leader himself even participated in all the spoils.

“Now we are getting some information that Kadhafi himself decided to rape and this is new,” Moreno-Ocampo told reporters.

He said there were reports of hundreds of women attacked in some areas of Libya, which is in the grip of a months-long internal rebellion.

There was evidence the Libyan authorities bought “Viagra-type” medicines and gave them to troops as part of the official rape policy, Moreno-Ocampo said.

“They were buying containers to enhance the possibility to rape women,” he said.

“It was never the pattern he used to control the population. The rape is a new aspect of the repression. That is why we had doubts at the beginning, but now we are more convinced that he decided to punish using rape,” the prosecutor said.

“It was very bad — beyond the limits, I would say.”
