The Fall of Gadhafi: Dictator without a Future
Part 4: A 70-Page Indictment
Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, accused Gadhafi in June of inciting his troops to commit mass rape, and claimed that the regime had purchased drugs like Viagra to encourage them to greater sexual violence.
At the end of June, the International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for Gadhafi, his son Saif al-Islam and Gadhafi's brother-in-law, intelligence chief Abdullah Sanussi. The three men face charges of crimes against humanity including the murder of hundreds of civilians, torture and the persecution of innocent people.
Gadhafi, his son and brother-in-law were personally criminally responsible for the crimes, said prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo.
