Practice Relating to Rule 25. Medical Personnel
In a plenary meeting of the CDDH, the representative of the USSR stated that he:
thought the deletion of paragraph 3 [of Article 17 of the draft Additional Protocol II] would enormously complicate matters for medical personnel in actual combat conditions. If, for instance, an army doctor disarmed a wounded soldier and failed to throw away the weapon, would he thereby forfeit his right to protection? He appealed to the representative of Pakistan to restore paragraph 3.
