Practice Relating to Rule 109. Search for, Collection and Evacuation of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked
Madagascar’s Military Manual (1994) provides: “When the mission so permits, the wounded [and] shipwrecked … shall be searched for and collected … [and] evacuated”. It instructs soldiers that, when confronted with wounded enemy combatants, the following rule must be observed: “Collect them.”
The manual also states: “Local arrangements may be concluded for the search, collection, exchange … [and] evacuation of the wounded and shipwrecked”.
