Chapter Summary

The purpose of the Bench Memorandum is to outline the main legal issues and corresponding arguments that each team may raise. According to the travaux preparatoires of the American Convention, a reference to &t;territory&t; in the original draft American Convention was removed during the special conference on the Convention in 1969, apparently to address situations in which Member States might exercise jurisdiction outside of their territorial jurisdiction. First, as Belor has not declared a state of emergency under Article 27 of the Convention it is presumptively required to guarantee all of the rights prescribed under the Convention, including Articles 7 and 25. Finally, in accordance with longstanding practice under international humanitarian law, Belor has given the International Committee of the Red Cross access to the detainees at the Citadel.
