Practice Relating to Rule 131. Treatment of Displaced Persons
The Dominican Republic’s Military Manual (1980) provides:
Whenever the military situation necessitates moving or evacuating civilians, remember to use common sense. Treat civilian refugees as you would want your family to be treated under similar circumstances. Unless emergency conditions exist, as an unexpected attack, give them enough time to collect and move their goods and property.
The Dominican Republic’s Military Manual (1980) states that when civilians are moved or resettled, soldiers “should take action to ensure their safety”.
