Investigations. Confinement awaiting hearing
    ARTICLE 122

    Acts which constitute offences against discipline shall be investigated immediately. This rule shall be applied, in particular, in cases of escape or attempt to escape. Recaptured internees shall be handed over to the competent authorities as soon as possible.
    In case of offences against discipline, confinement awaiting trial shall be reduced to an absolute minimum for all internees, and shall not exceed fourteen days. Its duration shall in any case be deducted from any sentence of confinement.
    The provisions of Articles 124 and 125 shall apply to internees who are in confinement awaiting trial for offences against discipline.
