Practice Relating to Rule 118. Provision of Basic Necessities to Persons Deprived of Their Liberty
Côte d’Ivoire’s Teaching Manual (2007) provides in Book I (Basic instruction):
The prisoner of war is an enemy combatant hors de combat due to the fact of his capture. As such, he enjoys a legal status which guarantees him rights.
Thus,
- he will be cared for,
- his nourishment will be correct;
- his physical and mental balance will be preserved by sporting, cultural and religious activities.
