Under the Geneva Conventions, enemy can neither harass the war prisoners nor threaten or intimidate them. Not only this, the prisoners of war can’t be humiliated too. The enemy party does not have to do any such work under the Geneva Conventions, in which there should not be, any confusion or misinformation about the prisoner of war in the general public.

According to the Geneva Conventions, the case will be prosecuted against the POWs. There is another option at the same time that they will be returned after the war is over.

Although, many countries respect the Geneva Conventions but some countries have violated it from time to time.

At the same time, according to the Geneva Conventions, any kind of therapeutic and scientific experiment is prohibited on the POW. Not only this, it is a violation of the Geneva Conventions to public the videos and photos of the POW.
