Practice Relating to Rule 145. Reprisals
Section E. Termination of reprisals as soon as the adversary complies again with the law
Somalia’s Military Criminal Code (1963) states:
A commander who orders hostile acts to be carried out by way of reprisals, except in cases where this is permitted by law or by international agreements, or who does not order the cessation of the said acts when he has received official notification that the adversary has made reparation for the illegal act, shall be punished by military confinement for 3 to 10 years.
