4:05 am
there is no such thing as a clean war war allows every kind of atrocity. rape is a shocking but increasingly common consequence of war. collateral damage. a side effect of the fight. but there's evidence that it is now used as a military strategy. of all war crimes great
4:06 am
is the most difficult to cover making it the perfect crime. thanks. in bosnia rwanda that there are critics republic of congo and syria women and children have usually been the main targets but in pre and post revolution libya it's men has often been the main victims but no one has ever been able to prove that. in libya rape is
4:07 am
a taboo subject mentioned the word silence prevailed and. one woman did speak out in public in march 20 levon i just thought of that evolution. that. the man in our baby was accusing the gadhafi regime of raping opponents and how cry resonated around the world. gadhafi was overthrown but libya was plunged into a civil war. the rumors of rape continued and while the international community expressed concern this did not turn into action. libya is still in a state of political and social chaos and tens of thousands of refugees have fled many towards europe. it effectively has 2 rival
4:08 am
governments militias rule the streets and the rumors of rape persist but no one would confirm them. then a libyan magistrate now living in neighboring tunisia decided to speak out. on this given that leave a. lot. more
4:09 am
. let's have a. good few years here but. i'm not out of the school of law school and that's that and you don't need my easy. money. mr moore how did you finish out of the enemy. in libya to medan i'll amend you was a public prosecutor in the chaos that followed the overthrow of gadhafi in october 2011 he said members of the opposition to jail for murder the very next day they were released and threatened to kill him so just. so he left libya. in tunis he has joined
4:10 am
a group of libyan activist fellow exile. he's put together a group which now tracks alleged crimes committed in their homeland. the video evidence brought to him by a man is shocking. so much to get published. that's a mistake to believe because of. marine one of the. emoticon for the office if you do have that sort of he took liebeler. what do you think you had best buy this when you video just don't get to. the to be deployed look so. just so.
4:11 am
said he said the landlady. said you know. he thought of computer book of yeah and then the thing you have to get out of. stephan if you think. i'm a lot you know my lot in the cuttack a mother i'm a father can be a really. really good to see that canuck i know. so to be with other girls plus no. doubt a few of. the one as a. kid. was i got. the $100.00 out of it kind of how do we do with the full of. some of them personally but that was not in
4:12 am
the film in the 4th quarter. so if you would a little. do you know we could go you know did you contribute. well into the whole kitchen much of a lead on a mock clinical quiz for us called me would have to step can make you still mad at city if you get out maybe looks let me do a life lived south last maybe looks election day out of government. yes i've got a good action and up above the bottom of the flight you have your pov on something . i could not pull. instead it would. have been going after your conscience on a mission. in libya reap is such a taboo that is simply not open for discussion.
4:13 am
i meant as a human rights activist operating on the ground but he's determined to bring the issue of rape out into the open. because he has received death threats imad carries his entire life in a suitcase and he never sleeps in the same place. one of his contacts is a man known simply as a sea. change
4:14 am
or she will he will be looking for. a local school. i thought oh. look it's one. for years just see really inside but all the time he knew about men and women who had been raped and who needed help . in fact he was talking about himself. when the scene arrived in tunis he didn't want his identity revealed and his voice here is this guy. you know this and he will have a high with me and i did to want to know you have to really.
4:15 am
thank god for it we are not going to the softness of his life just hate it would never be. lack of a high have you to feel. you know. off. because. people at the people said you know me. often enough for. anything. i have thought of we. could have taken any. testimony grudge your revealed the horrors of a hidden war civilians rounded up on the street secret prisons and torture.
4:16 am
he talked about men raped and then released defiled men whom no one ever mentions. i imagine the question was now how many of them were now wandering the streets of tunis before returning to libya and hiding their shame inside. and the women the men asked. why let's down the list. so i. see them just so i would for just a. second look this up on a bench. high enough so it can.
4:17 am
be different day mad meets victims of abuses suffered in libya and meticulously records everything they say. but most refused to talk about. this man nazir had been imprisoned for 6 years. so you have got here. she shifts in shifts maman is a. she can north i did. not feel. my god even when i was going to visit the work on the line about it with a mother i wonder if the.
4:18 am
most of them but of them when you did offer and them guns it was kind of who could tell the truth not as if they were the girl for the book and it's a matter of a sort of magic no one loves when one of the little clinic got out of session not about them either. they. did have a mostly physician or guardian let alone the reason a boy. would warm one of them over the difficulty year of the duration of. lee. he saw 3 muscular school fleetly yeah sure here.
4:19 am
when. will be the fisa court of. shit clearly. you have been of. the saw. who are nothing. like many others nazir simply avoids the question only revenge matters to him. but without official complaints and statements count and shit and it legal proceedings the rape trial remains empty the crime simply doesn't exist.
4:20 am
and a man spent several months listening to many libyan victims of abuse gathering a wealth of detailed information. but they case still lacked the kind of hard evidence they would need in order to make a case strong enough to stand up in international criminal court. they also badly need outside expertise. cillian by day knows well. she's a french lawyer specializing in international law and has 20 years of experience
4:21 am
tracking sexual violence in conflicts around the world. in 2013 she helped draft a law aimed at protecting rape victims under the gadhafi regime but that is just lation was never elected. by dates experience is that the war crimes do not simply go away if no legal action is taken they would continue to be committed. we are. a team it's not just me and imad we have many libyans here and we have our needs work inside on the ground and what we are trying to do we have trying to collect a lot of documentation from different organizations sense 2011
4:22 am
since ok since just how many lives and 1000 to live. there is sometimes not just militias. do the crime there is people are looking for a minister of the. minister of fun tear out can deal with this kind. you know that recently at the i.c.c. for rape you know the case bomba he was sentence and he didn't rape nobody but she was sentence for rape because he ordered it or him knew that it was happening and he didn't do nothing so that's a very important case because night existing the jurisprudence and this is also something we can use in our our case for almost 2 issues really so close of what you were to mention how we count toward together our team and you and your team
4:23 am
to solomon this case is internationally going to you know of the idea is all the case you have each individual situation that you may have collected each time we need to look at when it happened and where it happened because if you don't do that you get killed before a court that's why i am telling you this we have to work on that and to to show our systematic it is you know and then you have a case. legally speaking. you are in a. in a special situation. because you cannot bring a case ok but it doesn't mean that it does to stop now i think we can work on that to put pressure towards international in stones european you know mimic cetera and prepare a case for the i.c.c. and we need to push for the i.c.c. so we have to show that this is a priority and to bring
4:24 am
