Legal Issues Relating to Unruly Passengers


The Legal Committee held its 35th Session in May 2013 and decided to transmit to the Council a draft text of the Protocol to the Tokyo Convention of 1963 as a final draft for presentation to States and, ultimately, to a Diplomatic Conference. Based on the report of the Legal Committee, the Council decided to convene a Diplomatic Conference to amend the Tokyo Convention from 26 March to 4 April 2014. As part of the efforts to promote the Diplomatic Conference, ICAO supported and participated in an International Air and Space Law Conference, which was sponsored and organized by Poland on 15 November 2013 and which covered, inter alia, the issue of unruly passengers.
