ICC to investigate institutionalized gang-rape of women in Libya
The Hague, Netherlands (CNN) — Security forces in Libya are allegedly using sexual enhancement drugs as a “machete” and gang-raping women they stop at checkpoints, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has said.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo told CNN Monday that the court in The Hague will investigate allegations of institutionalized rape in the war-torn country. “There are rapes. The issue is who organized them,” Luis Moreno-Ocampo told CNN’s Nic Robertson. “They were committed in some police barracks. Were the policemen prosecuted? What happened?” he asked.
