Unneutral Service. D. - V. Conclusion. I. CONCEPT The laws of neutrality are based on two separate rationales which are closely interlinked (- Neutrality, Concept and General Rules): (a) the desire to guarantee that the neutral State will sustain minimal injury as a result of war; (b) the desire to guarantee the belligerents that the neutral State will be neutral not only in name but also in fact, that is to say, that it will not aid and abet one of the belligerents against its adversary.

DUTIES IMPOSED ONLY ON NEUTRAL STATES There are a number of duties owed by a neutral State in the context of sea warfare. If -- wounded, sick or shipwrecked members of belligerent armed forces are rescued by being taken on board a neutral warship, Geneva Convention II of 1949 obligates the neutral State to ensure (through their internment) that they can take no further part in operations of war. It is noteworthy that the Convention does not refer to neutral merchant ships: if the rescued persons are taken on board such a vessel, they must be released rather than interned (but should the merchant ship encounter an enemy warship, the latter will be entitled to search the former and to insist on the transfer of the rescued persons who will become -- prisoners of war).

Hence, an alternative system was introduced during both world wars based on special certificates called "navicerts" (~Safe-Conduct and Safe Passage). Under this procedure, any exporter in a neutral State may apply in advance to the diplomatic or consular mission of a belligerent with a view to obtaining from it a certificate affirming the nature of a shipment. The importance of obtaining the navicert was that when the merchant ship encountered a warship belonging to that belligerent, she was exempt from thorough inspection.
