SHAEF Legislator USA
in connection with the Commissary Government German Reich
An explanation is necessary for many who would like to know on what base the Commissary Government German Reich acting on behalf of the SHAEF Legislator USA has signed state treaties with the Principality of Sealand:
SHAEF is the acronym for Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Forces, the supreme command Allied Forces during the Second World War headed by the USA. Today, SHAEF is still the supreme legislator in Germany!
Based on the legal situation outlined above, any treaties with Sealand by the Federal Republic of Germany would not stand up in international law.
The statements by Graf Lambsdorff as chief negotiator of the Federal Republic of Germany about the compensation of forced labourers made it clear that the question of reparation payments is still unsolved and that the status quo is still valid. [See SHAEF Law No. 52,«Blocking and Contral of Property»]
As there still is no peace treaty with Germany (the German Reich), the Enemy State Clause of the United Nations is still in force, based on articles 53 and 107 of the UN-Charter Art. 53.
The Second World War has been waged and lost by the German Reich. The German Reich never capitulated. Only the three armed forces had capitulated. Thus a peace treaty in conjunction with its main feature, the reparations treaty, can only be signed by the German Reich. The Federal Republic of Germany is not the legal successor of the German Reich as confirmed by the Federal Constitutional Court , so there can never be a peace treaty with the Federal Republic of Germany.
Thus ensues the following situation:
On December 31, 2001, the claims by the Allies of the Second World War for reparations against their adversary, the German Reich, will partially fall under the statute of limitations. According to international law and to agreements by the Allies ( Potsdam and London Protocol #1 and #2), as well as diverse rulings by the Federal Constitutional Court, the Federal Republic of Germany is not the legal successor of the German Reich. Thus the FRG cannot be considered as a partner in a peace treaty with the Allied Forces. Otherwise the peace treaty could have been signed on the occasion of so-called reunification (FRG with GDR).
All payments the FRG and the GDR have voluntarily made over the decades after World War II, based upon a collective bad conscience of the Germans, were not made in connection with the actual war damages perpetrated by the Germans. They have no liberating effect from the war debts of the German Reich and thus will not be accounted against them.
Thus the reparation of war damages from World War II can only be regulated by a peace treaty between a government of the German Reich and the Allies (added to this are 30 million gold mark that the German Reich still owes from World War I based on the Treaty of Versailles, because Reichskanzler [chancellor] Adolf Hitler stopped further payment of these war debts).
One among several signs that the Allies of the Second World War (and of the First) will not waive reparation payments is the fact that the Allies for years supported the setting up of a Commissary Government German Reich in Berlin as partner for peace treaty and reparation negotiations. At the head of this institution is the General Chargé dAffaires for the German Reich (for the at this time not present Reichskanzler and Reichspräsident), who is the same as the Plenipotentiary for the German Reich for the Constitutionally Special Status of Berlin.
The office holders of the Commissary Government German Reich are under oath of service to the supreme commander of the allied forces, the SHAEF Legislator USA as supreme legislative authority in Germany. Next in line is the Weimar Constitution of 1919 and its updated versions until 1997. (By the way: according to occupation law of the Allies as well as the Weimar Constitution the death penalty continues to be in force.)
The SHAEF Legislation and all other regulations and rulings according to occupation law at the end of World War II are still valid for all Germans. (See agreement for the regulation of certain questions in relation to Berlin BGBI. II 1990 pp. 1274ff; this states that under article IV of the SHAEF Proclamation No. 1 of the USA, all Germans are under the advice, control and legislative power of the SHAEF Legislator USA). For this reason all Chancellors and Vice Chancellors of the FRG fly to Washington before taking the oath of office in the Deutsche Bundestag where they are instructed about this legal situation.
The 2+4 Agreement has been erroneously interpreted by the FRG (see above BGBI. II 1990, pp. 1274). To the Allies both the FRG and the GDR were and are instruments of occupational law. The unification of the two instruments of occupational law FRG and GDR had been enforced against the will of the two German governments through the inducement by the SHAEF Legislator USA. This measure had been announced in 1987 already (two years before!) with the exact date by the General Chargé dAffaires for the German Reich in the Reichstag in Berlin.
You can read about the legal status represented by the SHAEF Legislator USA in the letters by the General Chargé d'Affaires for the German Reich, respectively the Constitutionally Special Status of Berlin, to high-placed civil servants and attorneys who had violated rights of the Principality of Sealand, which is obliged by international law to safeguard the Commissary Government of the German Reich as the diplomatic receiving state.
