Central African Republic
Practice Relating to Rule 42. Works and Installations Containing Dangerous Forces
Section A. Attacks against works and installations containing dangerous forces and against military objectives located in their vicinity
The Central African Republic’s Instructor’s Manual (1999) states in Volume 1 (Basic and team leader instruction): “The following objects enjoy special protection: … works or installations containing dangerous forces (dams, dykes, nuclear power stations).”
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 following prohibitions must be respected:
- attacking dykes, nuclear power stations or dams if such attack may cause the release of dangerous forces and result in severe losses among the civilian population, unless these works have been used in direct support of military operations or for military purposes and an attack on these objectives is the only way to terminate such use.
