Duties
    ARTICLE 80

    Prisoners' representatives shall further the physical, spiritual and intellectual well-being of prisoners of war.
    In particular, where the prisoners decide to organize amongst themselves a system of mutual assistance, this organization will be within the province of the prisoners' representative, in addition to the special duties entrusted to him by other provisions of the present Convention.
    Prisoners' representatives shall not be held responsible, simply by reason of their duties, for any offences committed by prisoners of war.
