Practice Relating to Rule 112. Search for and Collection of the Dead
The Military Instructions (1989) of the Philippines provides: “Evacuation of the dead bodies must be done expeditiously and brought to the nearest morgue.”
According to the Report on the Practice of the Philippines:
In an armed conflict where guerilla warfare is the strategy used, distinguishing between civilians and combatants is very difficult. This is precisely the reason why the Philippines have adopted the same rules for both civilians and combatants with regard to the search for and care of the wounded, sick and dead.
