Declaration contained in the instrument of ratification deposited on 5 August 2010 - Or. Engl.

If the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children Against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse, dated 25 October 2007, were to be applied to Gibraltar, Spain would like to make the following declaration:

1. Gibraltar is a non-autonomous territory whose international relations come under the responsibility of the United Kingdom and which is subject to a decolonisation process in accordance with the relevant decisions and resolutions of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

2. The authorities of Gibraltar have a local character and exercise exclusively internal competences which have their origin and their foundation in a distribution and attribution of competences performed by the United Kingdom in compliance with its internal legislation, in its capacity as sovereign State on which the mentioned non-autonomous territory depends.

3. As a result, the eventual participation of the Gibraltarian authorities in the application of this Convention will be understood as carried out exclusively as part of the internal competences of Gibraltar and cannot be considered to modify in any way what was established in the two previous paragraphs.

4. The process provided for by the Arrangements relating to Gibraltar authorities in the context of certain international treaties (2007) which have been agreed by Spain and the United Kingdom on 19 December 2007 (jointly with the "Agreed Arrangements relating to Gibraltar authorities in the context of Eu and EC instruments and related treaties", dated 19 April 2000) apply to this Council of Europe Convention on Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse.
