HIGH SEAS INTERVENTION: PARAMETERS OF UNILATERAL ACTION
Intervention Convention is limited in the report to action taken against a vessel to prevent or mitigate damage to coastal interests, unaccompanied by a threat to the internal or external affairs of the flag state. The convention permits action on the high seas without limitation as to distance and makes no provision for intervention in pollution casualties other than oil-carrying vessels. It is remedial because action is permitted only after an accident has occurred. The author presents an appraisal of the convention under international law, and considers intervention in international waters and statutory claims.
