ARTICLE 9

SOVEREIGNTY

The international non-territorial sovereign organization is and functions as a fully independent sovereign entity and claims through this Deed of Establishment all the rights and privileges that any other sovereign nation, state or entity has and is entitled to.

The sovereignty of the international non-territorial sovereign organization must be respected by any other sovereign entity, intergovernmental organization, company, association, group or individual.

The recognition by other sovereign nations or entities, intergovernmental organizations, companies, associations, groups or individuals of the sovereignty of the international non-territorial sovereign organization is not required to make its sovereignty effective, lawful, legal and binding under international law.

The full legality and effectiveness of the sovereignty of the international non-territorial sovereign organization can therefore be claimed and is based upon no less than the following lawful and legal national policies, international agreements, treaties and United Nations statements and publications:

1. The Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States

This convention includes that:

“The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: a) a permanent population; b) a defined territory; c) government; and d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”

“The federal state shall constitute a sole person in the eyes of international law.”
“The political existence of the state is independent of recognition by the other states. Even before recognition the state has the right to defend its integrity and independence, to provide for its conservation and prosperity, and consequently to organize itself as it sees fit, to legislate upon its interests, administer its services, and to define the jurisdiction and competence of its courts.”

“The fundamental rights of states are not susceptible of being affected in any manner whatsoever.”

“The recognition of a state merely signifies that the state which recognizes it accepts the personality of the other with all the rights and duties determined by international law. Recognition is unconditional and irrevocable.”

“The recognition of a state may be express or tacit. The latter results from any act which implies the intention of recognizing the new state.”

“No state has the right to intervene in the internal or external affairs of another.”

This convention was signed in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French in the city of Montevideo, Republic of Uruguay, on December 26, 1933.

2. Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs: The Recognition of States and Governments

“As a general rule, newly-created states are recognised as such by other states provided their creation is considered legitimate and irreversible. According to the prevailing doctrine of three elements of statehood, recognition requires state territory, a state people and a public authority. However, there is no obligation under international law for one state to recognise another, even where these criteria are met. Conditions for recognition may also vary from state to state.”

“Where the recognition of governments is concerned, the central element is the exercise of sovereign authority over the state. A change of government makes no difference to statehood or state recognition as such. Switzerland is in favour of the widest possible recognition of states but does not, on the other hand, recognise governments.”

3. Sovereign Military Order of Malta

The Sovereign Military Order of Malta is a by the United Nations recognized sovereign order (community), the Order is regarded by the UN as a Permanent Observer Mission.

The Sovereign Military Order of Malta is not a country and it’s not a state. It’s most important and main headquarters are registered at Magistral Palace Via Condotti, 68 – 00187 Rome – Italy. Rome is the capital of the sovereign nation of Italy.

Based on no less than the above facts, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta enjoys international recognition as a sovereign entity although it does not specify its territory other than that its main headquarters are located in Rome, Italy, and that it operates in regions in sovereign nations.

Given that the Sovereign Military Order of Malta is internationally regarded as a sovereign entity without a specified territory but with the full rights and privileges of a sovereign nation or sovereign state such as issuing its own international passports for travel which are not printed in Rome but in Austria, the sovereignty of the international non-territorial sovereign organization is thus reasonable, rightful, legal, lawful and irrevocable, and must therefore at all times be respected by any other sovereign nation or sovereign entity, intergovernmental organization, company, association, group or individual.

4. Non-State Sovereign Entrepreneurs and Non-Territorial Sovereign Organizations – UNU-WIDER

Furthermore, following the principles suggested and outlined by the widely recognized and respected World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), the first research centre of the United Nations University, the structure of a non-territorial sovereign organization or NSO already exists and is already widely used by entities whose policies are regarded and enforced as being supranational [reference 1 and 2].

Conclusively, the sovereignty of the international non-territorial sovereign organization has been established and documented and, thus, can and has been claimed and shall at all times be enforced accordingly.
