Practice Relating to Rule 145. Reprisals
Section A. Definition and purpose of reprisals
During discussions on reprisals in Committee I of the CDDH, Argentina welcomed the efforts of the French delegation with regard to the introduction of a provision on the prohibition of reprisals in the 1977 Additional Protocol I. It further noted that the French proposal “should perhaps be completed so as to ensure that excessive reprisals did not lead to counter-reprisals”.
