Practice Relating to Rule 87. Humane Treatment
Mexico’s Army and Air Force Manual (2009) states: “The States party to the  Geneva Conventions undertake to: … respect human beings and their person, their honour, their dignity.”
The manual also states that Article 3 common to the 1949 Geneva Conventions “stipulates that in the event of armed conflict, protected persons must be treated humanely in all circumstances”.
Mexico’s IHL Guidelines (2009), in a section entitled “Basic rules of conduct in armed conflict”, states regarding enemies who surrender: “Disarm them and treat them humanely.”
In the same section, the Guidelines also states: “Treat all those who do not take part in the hostilities humanely, particularly women, children and persons displaced from their homes.”
