The colonel's victims were often as young as 14 years old

His reign of terror may have ended in October of 2011, when Libya's much-despised leader, Colonel Moammar Khadafy was killed after 42 years of his brutal dictatorship of that North African nation. His warped legacy, however, will live on in the lives of countless men and women who served as his "sex slaves." Horrific new photographic evidence and testimony has since been revealed about the colonel's perverse "extracurricular" activities .

Khadafi's heritage will long be felt in the hundreds, possibly thousands of teenage girls who were beaten, raped and forced to become his sex slaves.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Hauled out of a drainpipe and shot, Khadafi's death ended the bloody NATO-led civil war that had ravaged the country since the start of that year.

This is the bedroom in Khadafi

This is the bedroom in Khadafi's 'sex dungeon', decorated in 70s style with brown walls and a double bed, where he would take girls as young as 14 and sexually abuse them against their will.

Many of the young women were virgins kidnapped from schools and universities and kept prisoner for years in a specially designed secret sex lair hidden within Tripoli University or under his many palaces. In the two-years-plus he has been deposed, the gaudy interior of his "rape rooms" where the colonel brutalized his victims can be seen for the first time in a hard-hitting BBC4 documentary.

A nondescript single-storey complex, girls were forced to watch pornography to "educate" them for their degrading treatment at the hands of Khadafy. Those who did manage to escape were often shunned by their deeply religious Muslim families who believed their family honor had been tainted.

This is the fully-fitted gynecological suite where young girls would be placed in one of the two beds and checked for STDs before they were sent in to the waiting dictator.


The hastily convened transitional government after the dictator's death moved swiftly to seal off the sex dungeon, fearing the full extent of Khadafi's debased and lewd lifestyle would horrify the Western world and cause deep embarrassment to Libya.

Even more chilling is the clinical gynecological suite in an adjoining room, where two beds fitted with stirrups behind a table laden with surgical instruments examined Khadafi's young victims to ensure they had no sexually transmittable diseases. Victims were forced to undergo abortions if they became pregnant.

Khadafy had a private all-female guard, some of whom he allegedly also abused, having 'selected' them from schools and universities across the country.


Khadafi's would regularly tour schools and universities where female students were invited to his lectures. Speaking before his hushed audience, he would scan the room seeking out attractive girls. Before leaving he would pat those he had "selected" on the head.

His bodyguards would then round up those chosen and kidnap them. If their families tried to keep them from Khadafi's clutches, they were gunned down.

"Some were only 14," one horrified teacher said. "They would simply take the girl they wanted. They had no conscience, no morals, not an iota of mercy even though she was a mere child."

When a girl had been

When a girl had been 'selected', Khadafi's guards would kidnap her from her family, take her to the dungeon, where she would be stripped, checked for STDs, shaved of all but her pubic hair, plastered in makeup and sent in to Khadafi's, a witness has said.


Even more heinous were the teams of boys sent to Khadafi's sex den, where they too were abused. Former chief of protocol Nuri Al Mismari, who was at Khadafi's side for 40 years, adds: "He was terribly sexually deviant. Young boys and so on. He had his own boys. They used to be called the "services group". All of them were boys and bodyguards . a harem for his pleasure."
