My turn to issue a correction. For some reason the UN website uses a system which prevents you directly linking to many of their documents. As a result, the URL Colin gave for the new resolution doesn't work. A link that does work is http://www.casi.org.uk/info/undocs/scres/2002/res1454e.pdf Alternatively you can navigate your way to the resolution within the UN site. seb On Sat, 4 Jan 2003, Colin Rowat wrote: > Dear list members, > > Last Monday the Security Council passed resolution 1454, modifying the Goods > Review List and the procedures for its use.
