Mexico’s Code of Military Justice (1933), as amended in 1996, punishes anyone who “makes requisition of foodstuffs”.
The Code also punishes “anyone who, taking advantage of his own authority or the authority of the armed forces, maliciously and arbitrarily destroys foodstuffs, when it is not required by military operations”.
