Practice Relating to Rule 65. Perfidy
Section F. Simulation of protected status by using the distinctive emblems of the Geneva Conventions
Sierra Leone’s Instructor Manual (2007) states:
Improper use of the emblem
The emblems are misused when used by:
a. unauthorized persons (e.g. commercial firms, non-governmental organizations etc)
b. armed combatants on their equipments e.g. ambulances or helicopters to transport armed combatants, ammunition or to mark ammunition dumps, [in a] position to deceive their enemies.
Note that these actions are considered perfidy, a war crime that is punishable. If witnessed, it should be reported to your superior.
