Practice Relating to Rule 50. Destruction and Seizure of Property of an Adversary
Kenya’s LOAC Manual (1997) provides: “Civilian property is not to be destroyed except when this is strictly necessary for the execution of the mission.”
The manual also states: “It is forbidden to destroy or requisition enemy property unless it is militarily necessary to do so.”
Kenya’s Geneva Conventions Act (1968) punishes “any person, whatever his nationality, who, whether within or outside Kenya commits, or aids, abets or procures the commission by any other person of any grave breach of any of the [1949 Geneva] Conventions”.
