Practice Relating to Rule 65. Perfidy
Section G. Simulation of protected status by using the United Nations emblem or uniform
Hungary’s Military Manual (1992) gives as an example of perfidy “to falsely claim protected status, thereby inviting the confidence of the enemy”, inter alia
, by using the UN flag.
The manual also states that the “perfidious use of distinctive protective signs” is a grave breach of the law of war and a war crime.
