Articles 14 and 15

Insert between Articles 14 and 15 of the draft Peace Treaty with Italy, an Article reading as follows:

“15. (The subsequent Articles of the Draft will have to be correspondingly renumbered.) Italy undertakes not to tolerate the existence or activity on Italian territory of organisations of a Fascist character or other organizations, aimed at depriving the people of their democratic rights, or organisations, conducting propaganda hostile to any of the United Nations.

“Insofar as she has not already done so entirely, Italy undertakes, immediately upon the signature of the present Treaty, to remove from employment in governmental bodies or publicity [publicly]-owned companies or associations all persons who were actively engaged in Fascist Party work and not to allow in future such persons to be appointed to hold office in the above bodies or associations.”
