Practice Relating to Rule 1. The Principle of Distinction between Civilians and Combatants
Section C. Attacks against civilians
Under Slovenia’s Penal Code (1994), it is a war crime to commit or order the commission of “an attack on the civilian population … [or] on individual civilians”.
In 1992, in a note verbale addressed to the UN Secretary-General, Slovenia expressed its readiness to provide information concerning violations of IHL committed by members of the Yugoslav army during the 10-day conflict with Slovenia, including “violences concerning killings and injuries of civilians”.
