Under the heading “Rules of conduct in combat”, the manual also states: “Treat prisoners humanely.”
Guinea’s Disciplinary Regulations (2012) states: “As soon as they are captured, prisoners must be treated humanely. They must be protected against acts of violence, against insults and public curiosity. They are entitled to respect for their persons and their honour.”
Guinea’s Code of Medical Ethics (1996) states:
A Physician brought in to examine or to provide care to a person deprived of their liberty cannot, directly or indirectly, be it by his mere presence, support or authorise violation of that person’s physical or mental integrity or dignity. If he finds that the person has suffered from abuse or ill-treatment, he shall, subject to the consent of the person concerned, inform the judicial authority.
