Summary note
A file containing documents concerning Italian and Allied claims to Albanian gold seized by the Nazis during the Second World War. The file includes a copy of the judgment of the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) on the Albanian gold case, in which the I.C.J. declares itself incompetent to rule on the case -- comments from the Foreign Office on the I.C.J. judgement -- and comments on the implications of the I.C.J. judgement for Italian claims. The file also includes a draft of a note to the American and French governments concerning the I.C.J ruling -- a discussion of the likely reaction of the Italian press and public to the ruling -- and a report that the Albanian government has demanded that the gold be returned to Albania. Other documents include records of Parliamentary Questions concerning compensation for the death of British sailors killed in the Corfu Channel in Albania.
