D. Protection of captured soldiers

The captured soldiers are under the custody of the hostile country, which must do everything to enable the soldiers to lead a decent life despite their captivity (Art. 3 GA I-IV; Art. 12 I GA III).

They must not be disadvantaged on the basis of their nationality, skin color, race, religion, property, gender or the like (Art. 3 GA III). Only state of health, gender, age, rank or professional aptitude can justify preferential treatment of individuals (Art. 16 GA III). They must not be mistreated or maimed; Medical or scientific experiments of any kind, unless justified for health reasons, are prohibited. Intimidation, insults and retaliation are also prohibited. Also, the prisoners are from public curiosity, z. B. "Show off" to protect. (Art. 13 GA III)

When interrogating prisoners, no coercion may be exercised on them, and physical or mental torture is also expressly prohibited (Article 17 IV GA III). Whether showing television recordings of captured soldiers and questioning them against the III. Violating the Geneva Convention depends on the manner in which recordings are broadcast and interviews are carried out. If prisoners of war by one or the other party to the conflict are simply shown in television recordings, this does not yet violate international humanitarian law. A violation is only given if the respective detaining power puts prisoners on display in such a way that they are exposed to public curiosity or they are intimidated or insulted and their dignity is injured.
