Practice Relating to Rule 129. The Act of Displacement
Section A. Forced displacement
Hungary’s Military Manual (1992) prohibits “deportation or transfer out of or within an occupied territory”.
It also states that “unlawful deportation” falls under “grave breaches (war crimes)”.
Under Hungary’s Criminal Code (1978), as amended in 1998, the “settlement of the civilian population of the occupying power in the occupied territories, or resettlement of the population of the occupied territory” is a war crime.
