Misrata, Libya - He was humble and polite, a little gaunt with a few days' stubble growth. But until four months ago, Mansour Iddhow belonged to Muammar Gaddafi's innermost circle and was a member of his feared security apparatus.

As a member of Gaddafi's family, he served the Libyan leader for more than 30 years. He stayed with his master to the very end in Sirte until October 20. That was the day the revolution was won, Gaddafi was killed. That day, Mansour Iddhow's life changed forever.

Today, the 56-year-old father of nine is being kept in a makeshift prison in Misrata, Libya's third largest city and the scene of some of the regime's worst crimes committed against the Libyan people.

No charges have been made against him, no accusations of crime or wrongdoing, save that he was a member of the former regime. And no indication of if or when he will be released.
