' Even without exchange '
Art. 76. Prisoners may be set at liberty on parole, if the laws of their country do not forbid it.
In this case they are bound, on their personal honour, scrupulously to fulfil the engagements which they have freely contracted, and which should be clearly specified. On its part, their own government should not demand or accept from them any service incompatible with the parole given.
