Summary note
A file containing documents concerning Italian and Allied claims to Albanian gold seized by the Nazis during the Second World War and subsequently taken into custody by the Allies after the occupation of Germany. The file includes a discussion of an Italian proposal to settle claims on the Albanian gold outside of the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) -- a report that the I.C.J. has declined to accept jurisdiction over the case on the grounds that the Albanian government was not included in the discussions -- and a proposal to establish an ad-hoc tribunal to settle the case. The file also includes a discussion of the possibility of using the settlement on the claims to the gold as leverage during Allied-Italian negotiations over Trieste. Other documents include a report on the National Bank of Albania since 1925 -- and a text of the Albanian law establishing the National Bank of Albania.
