Chapter Summary

The signatory States undertake to enact legislation, whereby persons subject to their jurisdiction who reduce any person to the state of slavery, or engage in the slave trade, shall be liable to substantial penalties. The Assembly of the League of Nations having requested that States make observations on the 1925 Draft Convention received only one reply in regard to the provisions dealing with penalties. The drafting of Article 6 of the 1926 Slavery Convention indicated that the drafters within the League of Nations were too cautious in seeking to gain acceptance of provisions regarding penalising violations of the proposed Convention.
