Practice Relating to Rule 105. Respect for Family Life
Australia’s Defence Force Manual (1994) provides: “An obligation is imposed on all parties to deal humanely with protected persons. The person, honour, family rights, religious convictions, manners and customs of protected persons shall be respected.”
Australia’s LOAC Manual (2006) states with regard to the general treatment of protected persons in both their own territory and occupied territory that “family rights … of protected persons shall be respected”.
The LOAC Manual (2006) replaces both the Defence Force Manual (1994) and the Commanders’ Guide (1994).
