Practice Relating to Rule 148. Reprisals in Non-International Armed Conflicts
At the CDDH, Pakistan made the following new proposal in order to prohibit reprisals:
Isolated cases of disrespect of the provisions of the present Protocol by one party shall not in any circumstances authorize the non-compliance by the other party with the provisions of [the relevant Part], even for the purpose of inducing the adverse party to comply with its obligations.
In a later statement, Pakistan stated: “After consultations between various delegations, groups and inter-regional groups, it had been proposed, as a compromise, that [draft] Article 10 bis should be deleted.”
