In 2008, in its fourth to sixth periodic reports to the Committee against Torture, France stated:
French military personnel … receive oral instructions in that regard [prohibition of torture, duty to disobey unlawful orders by a superior officer and obligations regarding the treatment of the wounded, ill and shipwrecked] in the theatre of operations, in particular through the presence of a legal adviser alongside the troop commander.
