Republic of Korea
Practice Relating to Rule 50. Destruction and Seizure of Property of an Adversary
Under the Republic of Korea’s Military Regulation 187 (1991), meaningless destruction is a war crime.
The Republic of Korea’s ICC Act (2007) provides for the punishment of anyone who “extensively destroys, appropriates or seizes property of the adverse party in violation of international law” “unless this is imperatively demanded by the necessities of the armed conflict” in both international and non-international armed conflicts.
