Practice Relating to Rule 103. Collective Punishments
France’s Disciplinary Regulations (1975), as amended, prohibits subjecting the wounded, sick and shipwrecked, prisoners and civilians to collective punishment. 
France, Règlement de Discipline Générale dans les Armées, Decree No. 75-675 of 28 July 1975, replacing Decree No. 66-749, completed by Decree of 11 October 1978, implemented by Instruction No. 52000/DEF/C/5 of 10 December 1979, and modified by Decree of 12 July 1982, Ministère de la Défense, Etat-Major de l’Armée de Terre, Bureau Emploi, Article 9 bis (2).
France’s LOAC Manual (2001) provides that collective punishment is a war crime and that one of the three main principles common to IHL and human rights is the principle of security, which guarantees to every human being the right not to be held responsible for an offence he or she did not commit and which prohibits collective punishments.
