Summary note
A file containing documents relating to an Italian claim to recover gold looted by the Germans from the Bank of Albania in Rome in 1943. Documents include discussion of who would represent the different countries in the case before the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) and other procedural issues relating to the case -- and of Parliamentary Questions on whether the gold would form part of the settlement for the Corfu Channel incident, where Albanian batteries had fired on British ships in 1946, on compensation paid to sailors killed and injured in the incident, and on other ways of getting compensation from Albania. Documents also analyse the case the Italian Government then made to the I.C.J. that the court did not have jurisdiction in the case -- agree that close cooperation with the French and United States governments to defend the case is essential -- and discuss publication of the expert opinion.
