Practice Relating to Rule 26. Medical Activities
Section A. Respect for medical ethics
France’s LOAC Manual (2001), under the heading “Red Cross and Red Crescent (rules of protection)”, provides:
The protection is linked to the medical purposes of the actions undertaken and finds its expression in the limitation of detention, in the granting of facilities when that personnel carries out its activity, and in the assurance not to be punished for any medical activity compatible with medical ethics.
