Notice from the Depositary
Nicaragua deposited its instrument of accession to the above-mentioned Convention on 27 February 2019, as notified in Depositary Notification Taking of Evidence No. 01/2019.
On 20 April 2020 the Depositary received a reservation from Nicaragua in respect of Article 4 (2) of the Convention. Article 33 of the Convention stipulates, however, that a State may exclude, in whole or in part, the application of the provisions of Article 4 (2) of the Convention only at the time of signature, ratification or accession.
The Depositary proposes to receive the reservation in question for deposit in the absence of any objection on the part of one of the Contracting States, either to the deposit itself or to the procedure envisaged, within a period of one year from the date of the present notification. In the absence of any such objection, the said reservation will be received for deposit upon the expiration of the above stipulated one year period, that is on 13 May 2021.

Late Reservation:

Nicaragua expresses a reservation with regard to the application of Article 4, second paragraph. Nicaragua stipulates that any Letter of Request or documentation concerning the application of the Convention must be accompanied by a translation of that letter or documentation into the Spanish language.
