Swedish MoD presents new report on protective emblems in LOAC

During a hearing at the Swedish Ministry of Defence (MoD) on 27 May 2015 Dick Clomén from the Swedish Red Cross and Liv Bernitz from Swedish Ministry of Justice presented a report on the history of the protective emblems in law of armed conflict (LOAC) and the transformation of Additional Protocol III to the Geneva Conventions into Swedish Law.

The report is the most recent in a series of reports from the Swedish Total Defence Council for International Humanitarian Law (Totalförsvarets folkrättsråd), a body under the Swedish MoD which monitors, coordinate and develops LOAC for the Swedish defence agencies.

The Swedish proposal can be found here.
