Practice Relating to Rule 119. Accommodation for Women Deprived of Their Liberty
Cameroon’s Instructor’s Manual (1992) provides that separate accommodation shall be provided to women prisoners.
Cameroon’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states with regard to women prisoners of war:
Women must be detained in locations separate from men and guarded by women …
Pregnant women and mothers of young children dependent on them must be released as quickly as possible. Prisoners of war must not receive a more serious sentence or, while they serve a sentence, they must not be treated more severely than women or men who are members of the armed forces of the Detaining Power and who are being punished for a similar offence.
