International Humanitarian Laws practice and implementation are continuous process and softly enforced with all commitment by ICRC . In recent developments of Non International Armed Conflicts are not looked in the prism of Geneva Convention and Protocal’s. The detaining authorities neither developed nor sensitised of IHL . The minimum requirement of conditions of detention are inadequate – “lacking in basics such as adequate food, water, clothing and bedding accommodation, hygienic installations or health care “. Since the same detaining authorities are trained in domestic prisons ignoring the human rights issues to the prisoners one cannot expect from them rule of international law.
We have to appreciate the efforts ICRC as an International institution of having team of professionals and law experts intervening and guiding the detaining authorities and insensitive governments.
