Italy

Declaration contained in a letter from the Permanent Representative of Italy, dated 27 January 1989, registered at the Secretariat General on 30 January 1989 - Or. Fr. .

The Italian government declares that paragraph 2 (a) of the Annex on Privileges and Immunities should not be interpreted as excluding any police or customs check of the luggage of the members of the Committee, provided the check is carried out in compliance with the rules on confidentiality set forth in Article 11 of the Convention.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

In its explanatory report to the Senate of the Republic, dated 4 July 1988, on the ratification of the Convention, the Italian Government had indicated that "at the time of deposit of the instrument of ratification, [the Government] shall make a declaration of interpretation of paragraph 2 (a) of the Annex on Privileges and Immunities, under which the said paragraph 2 (a) should not be interpreted as excluding any police or customs check of the luggage of the members of the Committee, provided the check is carried out in compliance with the rules on confidentiality set forth in Article 11 of the Convention.

Due to an omission, the declaration was not made to the Secretary General, depository of the treaty, upon deposit of the instrument of ratification on 29 December 1988.

The Government of Italy 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 Convention in respect of Italy.
