No. 82
ADDITIONAL PROTOCOL TO THE CONVENTION
RELATIVE TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN
INTERNATIONAL PRIZE COURT

Signed at The Hague, 19 September 1910

INTRODUCTORY NOTE: The Additional Protocol was adopted on the initiative of the United States. The Convention of 1907 seemed to be in conflict with the Constitution of the United States which vests the judicial power in the Supreme Court. The delegates assembled at the Naval Conference in London in 1908 and 1909 approved in principle the modifications submitted to them by the United States, but were not authorized to sign an additional protocol. See the wish expressed by the delegates in the Final Protocol of the Naval Conferenc, (No. 83). The Additional Protocol was signed at The Hague by thirteen powers and was later signed by all the remaining signatories of the original Convention.

ENTRY INTO FORCE: Not yet in force.

AUTHENTIC TEXT: French. The English translation below is reprinted from Scott, Hague Conventions, pp. 204–208. It reproduces the translation of the United States Department of State. The marginal titles added to the Protocol have no official character.
