Prize Court

Prize Court

The property of enemies captured on the high seas is called the Prize. It differs from plunder, which is applied to the property of enemies taken from the land. The Prize Court derives its name from its function, which gives legitimacy and recognition to “Prize”, a term referring to the possession of a ship or its cargo by sea, not land or anti-war forces. A prize court is a court that, under international law, deals with questions related to the prize, for example, aircraft, ships, or goods captured by the military or air force on the battlefield at sea or in a port during the war. It is often embarrassing to the Admiral Court, as a result, perhaps the same judge usually presides in both courts; This is a mistake, however, because the whole system of litigation and litigation in the Court of Awards, while very important, is strange to itself, and is governed by the rule of not applying to the Admiral’s Instance Court (now part of the High Court) which is merely a civil tribunal. According to the Isobar Prize Court, it was created specifically for the purpose of deciding questions related to maritime capture during the war under international law.

In the twentieth century, merchant ships have reduced the role of unlimited naval rewards courts involved in shipwrecks. An international treaty to make it, the Convention Relative to the Creation of the International Prize Court, was signed at the Second Hague Conference in 1907 but did not come into force. The United States has not had a prize court since 1899, in addition to adopting a more liberal policy of compensating foreign ships rather than allocating them as rewards. The International Rewards Court was to hear the National Court’s appeal in the award case. Even as a draft, the conference was innovative for the time being, as it was both the first agreement in favor of the International Court of Justice (as opposed to a mere arbitral tribunal), and in granting access to the courts to individuals Under were rights and responsibilities. Under the United States Prize Act 1941, aircraft possession may also come under the jurisdiction of the Rewards Court. This national conference was opposed, in particular, by internal elements of the United States and the United Kingdom, as a violation of national sovereignty.

Although the award courts are municipal courts, and their character and organization are thus determined by national tradition and law, they apply customary and customary international law. The 1907 Convention was made in The Hague on October 18, 1910, by the Additional Protocol Amendment of the Convention Relative to Creative to Prize Court, which deems it a violation of the constitutional provision that provides the U.S. Supreme Court as the final judicial authority. There is a long-standing law for war veterans at the outset of the war, enacting rewards through the application of legal law; This national law is considered to be the declarator of international law but it is binding on the court in any case. Several ideas from the Prize Court’s proposal can be seen in the current international courts, such as its provisions for judges, later adopted by the Permanent Court of International Justice, and later by the International Court of Justice.
