EXPLANATORY NOTE

On 25 July 1988, the Government of Denmark addressed to her Majesty the Queen a recommendation aiming at obtaining the authorisation to ratify Protocol No. 7 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. This recommendation provided for the formulation of the following declaration concerning the territorial application:

"Under the terms of Article 6, paragraph 1, of Protocol No. 7 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the Government of Denmark hereby declares that the said Protocol shall not apply to the Faroe Islands."

Due to an omission, the declaration was not made to the Secretary General, depository of the Convention, upon deposit of the instrument of ratification on 18 August 1988, as it should have been under the terms of Article 6, paragraph 1, of the Protocol.

The Government of Denmark corrects today this clerical mistake by forwarding to the Secretary General the text of the above mentioned declaration, to take effect at the date of entry into force of the Protocol in respect of the Kingdom of Denmark.
