2014.03 Guidelines on Taking, Publication and Distribution of Images of Persons in Custody
These guidelines provide guidance on the taking, publication and distribution of images of persons in custody in host countries of United Nations peacekeeping operations and special political missions, to ensure respect for the dignity of those persons and their rights, including their rights to security of the person and to privacy. These guidelines do not confer authority on any mission personnel to take images of persons in custody. United Nations personnel in field operations should only take images of persons in custody as and when so authorized by a competent authority and when the person in custody has not objected to be part of an image. Images of persons in custody should under no circumstances be taken for private, non-official purposes. These guidelines shall apply to all mission personnel of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), the Department of Field Support (DFS) and the Department of Political Affairs (DPA).
