Practice Relating to the Prohibition of Certain Types of Landmines
Luxembourg’s Law on the Prohibition of Anti-Personnel Mines (1999) provides:
Subject to the exceptions provided by the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer or Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction, it is unlawful for any person or entity:
(a) to use antipersonnel landmines;
(b) to develop, manufacture or acquire any other way, stockpile or retain, or transfer to anyone, directly or indirectly, anti-personnel landmines;
(c) to assist, encourage or induce, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under the Convention and this Act.
Luxembourg participated fully in the meetings which led to the adoption of a treaty banning anti-personnel landmines, including the Oslo negotiations in September 1997. It also voted in favour of the UN General Assembly resolutions in support of a ban on anti-personnel landmines in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
