After a firefight somewhere in an armed conflict, the troops capture an injured combatant of the adversary party.
It is not clear whether the person is a prisoners of war, a common civilian, or a civilian actively participating in hostilities. Their military leaders are interested in the information that this person might hold.
As the wounded combatant awakes, a physician performs a medical check-up of the now detained person. Subsequently, the detainee is interrogated, possibly with the use of coercion or even torture.
Questions for the discussion of this scenario
1. Should the physician perform a medical check-up knowing that the detainee will subsequently be coercively interrogated and/or tortured? Should a physician "clear" a detainee for interrogations?
