Practice Relating to Rule 106. Conditions for Prisoner-of-War Status
At the CDDH, Uruguay abstained in the vote on Article 42 of the draft Additional Protocol I (now Article 44) and referred to the statements made by Argentina and Switzerland and to its own statement in Committee III in which it had expressed its concern about “the foreseeable consequences of the lack of a clear distinction between the combatants and the civilian population, which would expose the civilian population to a quite unnecessary risk”.
