Practice Relating to Rule 148. Reprisals in Non-International Armed Conflicts
At the CDDH, a representative of the United Kingdom stated that the provision of draft Article 6(2) “‘at any time and in any place whatsoever’ was so comprehensive that it would probably not leave room for the operation of reprisals in any form”. Draft Article 6(2) contained a detailed list of specially prohibited acts directed against persons in the power of the parties to the conflict.
