Gaddafi gives Viagra to troops for mass rape to terrorise rebels


June 9, 2011 - London

Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi gave Viagra to his troops and ordered mass rapes to terrorise rebels, the International Criminal Court's top prosecutor has claimed.

"In some areas we had 100 people raped. The issue for us was, can we attribute these rapes to Gaddafi? Or is it something that happened in the barracks," The Sun quoted Luis Moreno-Ocampo, as saying.

"Now we are confirming that there was a policy to rape in Libya. It was never the pattern he used to control the population. The rape is a new attribute of his repression," he added.

Moreno-Ocampo also cited witnesses to insist that he Gaddafi loyalists were found buying containers of sex drugs to "enhance the possibility to rape".

He said he might now ask for a charge of mass rape to be made against Gaddafi.

The prosecutor has expressed hope that the judge will give his judgement within few days on his request for crimes-against-humanity charges against the Libyan leader.

In March, a Libyan woman named Eman al-Obeidi, had burst into a Tripoli hotel and told journalists that Gaddafi's troops had raped her.
