ICC probes Libya sex crimes
International Criminal Court (ICC) investigators on Wednesday (November 30th) met with Libyan women in Tripoli to discuss rapes and other sexual atrocities committed by Kadhafi regime officials before and during the rebellion, AFP reported.
"We are not investigating every crime but those which are most grave," ICC investigative team leader Jane O'Toole said on the sidelines of the women's conference, adding that the investigation would look into who authorised the attacks.
ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said last June that the court had gathered evidence showing that ex-Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi ordered mass rapes and bought containers of "Viagra-type" sex drugs for his troops to attack women during the revolt.
