In Volume 2 (Instruction for group and patrol leaders), the manual states: “The wounded and sick must be … cared for by the party to the conflict which has them in its power.”
Also in Volume 2, the manual states: “A military unit obliged to abandon the enemy wounded and sick must leave with them medical personnel and supplies to help care for them, insofar as the tactical situation permits.”
In Volume 3 (Instruction for non-commissioned officers studying for the level 1 and 2 certificates and for future officers of the criminal police), the manual states: “The wounded, sick and shipwrecked must receive the medical care required by their state of health.”
Volume 3 further states: “Precautions must be taken as soon as, and provided that, the mission permits it (… victims are … cared for in a combat area by medical personnel, etc.).”
The Central African Republic’s Disciplinary Regulations (2009) states: “In accordance with the international conventions signed or approved by the Central African Government, it is stipulated that during combat servicemen must: … care for the wounded, sick and shipwrecked whenever circumstances permit”.
