There are many reports of women being gang-raped by upwards of thirty men at once, or being bound in a hut and repeatedly raped over several days whilst being starved and tortured. Women are also kidnapped from their villages to be held hostage in SPDC camps to provide pleasure and entertainment to the resting troops.
A large percentage of the women who are raped are also tortured and/or killed. Earrings and jewelry are ripped out, ears or breasts are cut off, faces or genitals are disfigured or they are beaten repetitively until their last breath leaves their body. Some are granted freedom only to be shot from behind as they leave.
Any complaints to authorities fall on deaf ears, often with families being threatened or ordered to pay court fees to dismiss the case. The SPDC troops appear immune to criminal punishment or incarceration for these horrendous crimes.
