Practice Relating to Rule 116. Accounting for the Dead
Section D. Identification of the dead after disposal
Cameroon’s Instructor’s Manual (2006), under the heading “The Dead”, states: “The identity cards and discs [of deceased persons] must be retained. In the case of double [identity] discs, one half must remain with the body.”
The manual also states that “[t]he dead … may be incinerated after identification, and their ashes must be repatriated at the same time as their identity cards or discs”.
