Practice Relating to Rule 130. Transfer of Own Civilian Population into Occupied Territory
Croatia’s LOAC Compendium (1991) states that it is prohibited “to transfer one’s own civilians into the occupied territory”.
Croatia’s Criminal Code (1997) provides, under the heading “War crimes against civilian population”:
Whoever, as part of an occupying power, in violation of the rules of international law, in time of war, armed conflict or occupation, orders or performs the transfer of parts of the civilian population of the occupying force to the occupied territory shall be punished.
