While the press conference of the International Provisional Representative of the Free e Territory of Trieste – I.P.R. F.T.T. approaches, the Free Trieste Movement publishes the complete, original document (S/2015/809 – LINK) of the United Nations Security Council that made official the analysis of the General Secretariat concerning the systems of international protection of territories, undersigned by Secretary-General Ban-ki moon.
The official analysis, prepared by the experts of the United Nations to find suitable models to protect the civil population of Palestine, includes and confirms the legal validity of the status of the present-day Free Territory of Trieste as independent State under a provisional regime of administration, and it will be used to guide future decisions of the United Nations on the matter of international defence.
As for the protection obligations of the United Nations Security Council concerning the present-day Free Territory of Trieste, it is necessary underlining that since 1992 they do no longer apply to the part that was under the administration of the ceased Yugoslav Government, being this question settled as such on the same year with Resolutions No. 73, 74 and 77 of the Security Council itself.
Due to this, since 1992 the present day Free Territory of Trieste has no territorial claims against Slovenia and Croatia, and it consists in its main part, entrusted to the temporary civil administration of the Italian Government, to whom are contested serious and unjustified violations of the special trusteeship mandate – confirmed as such by the new document of the General Secretariat and of the United Nations Security Council.
On those bases, on 10 January 2016, the I.P.R. F.T.T. has already officially brought to international attention, addressing the provisional Italian Government, the Governments of the USA and of the UK, and the United Nations General Secretariat and Security Council, the question of the international Free Port of the Free Territory of Trieste and the attempts of Italian authorities to eliminate its Northern Free Port.
The press conference of the International Provisional Representative of the Free Territory of Trieste – I.P.R. F.T.T. on the new documents and facts takes place on 15 January, at 11.30AM, in the ceremony hall of the Free Trieste Movement in piazza della Borsa 7.
