Netherlands

Objection contained in a Note Verbale from the Permanent Representation of the Netherlands, dated 28 April 2016, registered at the Secretariat General on 29 April 2016 – Or. Engl.

The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has carefully examined the declaration made by the Government of the Republic of Poland with respect to the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence.

The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands notes that in this declaration the Republic of Poland subjects’ application of the Convention to the principles and the provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, which in fact amounts to a reservation.

The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands considers that such a reservation, which seeks to limit the responsibilities of the reserving State under the Convention by general reference to national law, raises doubts as to the commitment of that State to the object and purpose of the Convention.

The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands further recalls that according to Article 78, paragraph 1, of the Convention, reservations are only permitted with regard to a limited and specified number of Articles. The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands therefore objects to this reservation.

This objection shall not preclude the entry into force of the Convention between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Republic of Poland.
