The disturbing details of the brutality was revealed in the Sunday Times of Malta, where the women was quoted as saying to a Benghazi-based psychologist how they were raped repeatedly by Gaddafi and his sons and were dumped after the men got "bored" of them.
The details are being collected by psychologist Seham Sergewa and could be used by the International Criminal Court for prosecution. The International body has already issued a warrant for Gaddafi's arrest along with other key officials over charges of war crimes. [Gaddafi smitten with 'African Princess' Condoleezza Rice?]
One of the women who served as a bodyguard said how she was forced into becoming a guard by blackmail. She was forced to the profession when the brutal regime made up a story that accused her brother of smuggling drugs into Libya. They had declared that he would be let off only if she decides to join the female brigade. [Read: Gaddafi's female body guards underwent Genital Cutting!]
The newspaper stated, "A pattern emerged in the stories. The women would be first raped by the dictator and then passed on, like used objects, to one of his sons and eventually to high-ranking officials for more abuse before eventually being let go."
The female bodyguards, also called the Amazonian guard, were subject to brutality and physical assault of the first nature. They were asked to wear camouflage outfits, nail polish and heavy mascara. The battalion of 30 women pledged their loyalty and took an oath of virginity, revealed reports.
The Guardian newspaper also quotes Moussa Ibrahim, a government spokesman as saying, "Libyan women are now joining the armed forces against NATO. We are training them. Their main role is defending homes. We have no plan to send them to the front line. They are not trained for that, and our Army is very effective. We are going to make sure that every mother, the symbol of love and creation, is a bomb, a killing machine."
They even had to bear the brunt of bullets in more instances than one in order to protect Gaddafi.
