Practice Relating to Rule 107. Spies
Chad’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states that “spies are people who act clandestinely or under false pretences to gather information in a territory controlled by an enemy party, their aim being to pass this information on to the enemy”.
The manual further states: “Unlike military intelligence, which is legitimate, espionage is vigorously criticized by all national and international jurisdictions.”
Chad’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states: “If spies are taken captive, they are subjected to the same treatment as mercenaries. Spies are also considered to be non-combatants and do not enjoy prisoner-of-war status if they are taken captive.”
