Central African Republic
Practice Relating to Rule 107. Spies
Section B. Status of spies
The Central African Republic’s Instructor’s Manual (1999) states in Volume 3 (Instruction for non-commissioned officers studying for the level 1 and 2 certificates and for future officers of the criminal police):
Intelligence must be obtained in uniform or without attempting to conceal the status of combatant. If intelligence is sought in areas controlled by the enemy under false pretence or in a deliberately clandestine way, this will be considered espionage. A combatant captured under these conditions will lose his prisoner-of-war status.
