Chapter Summary

The act of conveying or attempting to convey slaves from one country to another by whatever means of transport, or of being accessory thereto, shall be a criminal offence under the laws of the States Parties to this Convention and persons convicted thereof shall be liable to very severe penalties. The Secretary-General noted that "the Anti-Slavery Society expressed the opinion that slaves are now conveyed by sea only in a certain region and in small ships. Every State shall adopt effective measures to prevent and punish the transport of slaves in vessels authorized to fly its colours, and to prevent the unlawful use of its flag for that purpose. Any slave who takes refuge on board a warship or a merchant vessel shall ipso facto be free.
