The Project of a Permanent Court of International Justice and Resolutions of the Advisory Committee of Jurists: Report and Commentary

By James Brown Scott | Go to book overview
none. This does not mean that the Advisory Committee overlooked the matter. It was considered in the informal sessions devoted to procedure. After discussion, the opinion was expressed in favor and against an article on the subject, but in the end the view prevailed that it was the duty of the court to find the facts involved in a concrete case before it and to apply the appropriate rules of law to the facts as found. Execution, as the name implies, belongs to the executive and should be left where it belongs in the domain of politics and of expediency.The Committee tentatively adopted an article to the effect that the parties should promptly notify the Secretary General or the court of the execution of the judgment or the steps taken to its execution. On reflection, the Drafting Committee recommended that this highly proper but imperfect article should be omitted. The Advisory Committee was also and unanimously of the same opinion.
