Practice Relating to Rule 70. Weapons of a Nature to Cause Superfluous Injury or Unnecessary Suffering
Chad’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states: “It is prohibited to use weapons, projectiles and substances and methods of war that are likely to cause unnecessary suffering.”
The manual also prohibits weapons which “inevitably cause death”.
The manual further states that the “the use of certain weapons that cause unnecessary suffering” is a grave breach of the 1977 Additional Protocol I and, as such, a war crime.
