Mission Rape - A Tool of War

61 min.DK/Documentary

Despite increasingly refined war technology, mass rape is used as a tool of war in modern combat. Some 25,000 to 40,000 women were victims of mass rape during the Balkan war 1992-1995. Twenty years after these crimes, only very few cases of war crimes of sexual violence have been investigated and prosecuted. For the women in the film the rapes remain a dark shadow in their lives enshrouded by taboo. For these women legal justice is the only hope to regain integrity and life. However, justice fails and betrays them all the way to the International Criminal Court of Justice in The Hague.
