within easy traveling distance, by plane, car, water or train. You will always find enchanting landscapes, infused in history and always a welcome sign for foreigners who are moving to the country for the first time. The United Kingdom is the greatest in numbers as far as the migrant capacity is concerned. This has also had an impact on permanent residency figures with stricter guidelines and rules coming in to force over the last couple of years.

The company’s volume sales decline was lower than that of Diageo and Fentimans, the majority of which sell ‘alcopops’. Beverage Brands capitalised on the premixed cocktail trend and launched WKD Remix. Although attempts were made with heavy investment in marketing, it did not help to strengthen its position. This included a viral advertisement involving men at a gym riding exercise bikes quickly to attract women but then slowing down as soon as the women turned away. In the UK, RTDs/high-strength premixes was one of the worst performing categories in alcoholic drinks in 2012. This was predominantly due to a continued poor performance from spirit-based RTDs, which accounts for a 77% volume share of the wider category. Spirit-based RTDs performed worse than expected, however, in 2012, registering a total volume decline of 9%. This was partly due to the growing popularity of flavoured ciders. RTDs and flavoured ciders appeal to the same demographic of young drinkers (aged 18-24) and women due to their bright colours and sweet taste. As the popularity of flavoured cider increases, RTDs will continue to contract, posting a total volume CAGR decline of 2% over 2012-2017. RTDs is the fastest moving category in alcoholic drinks and, as it lacks traditional roots, is very driven by fashion. Consumers with a declining disposable income are moving more upmarket when they do spend, away from RTDs.

Also submitted with the Application was a Request for the Indication of Provisional Measures of Protection. The request states the fact that serious breaches of rules of jus cogens have been ongoing for over a century only amplifies the urgent request that the Court indicate provisional measures to protect and preserve the rights of the Hawaiian Kingdom. The Court is requested to declare that: a) All member States of the United Nations, which includes the States herein named, in compliance with the duty of non-recognition imposed under Articles 41(1) and 41(2) of the Articles of State Responsibility for International Wrongful Acts, are under an obligation: 1) to recognize the illegality and invalidity of the United States of Americas continued presence in the Hawaiian Kingdom; 2) to refrain from lending any support or any form of assistance to the United States of America with reference to its illegal occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom; 3) to abstain from entering into treaty relations with the United States of America in all cases whereby the government of the United States of America purports to act on behalf of or concerning the Hawaiian Kingdom; 4) to abstain from sending consular agents to the territory of the Hawaiian Kingdom, purportedly under arrangements and/or agreements with the United States of America, and to withdraw any such agents already there; 5) to abstain from entering into economic, military and any other form of relationship or dealing with the United States of America on behalf of or concerning the Hawaiian Kingdom, which may entrench its authority over the territory; b) With respect to existing bilateral treaties, member States of the United Nations, which includes the States herein named, in compliance with the duty of non-recognition imposed under Articles 41(1) and 41(2) of the Articles of State Responsibility for International Wrongful Acts, must abstain from invoking or applying those treaties or provisions of treaties concluded by the United States of America on behalf of or concerning the Hawaiian Kingdom, which include and/or involve active intergovernmental co-operation. c) With respect to multilateral treaties, however, the same rule cannot be applied to certain general conventions such as those of a humanitarian character, the non-performance of which may adversely affect the people of the Hawaiian Kingdom; d) All member States of the United Nations, which includes the States herein named, in compliance with the duty of non-recognition imposed under Articles 41(1) and 41(2) of the Articles of State Responsibility for International Wrongful Acts, should not result in depriving the people of the Hawaiian Kingdom of any advantages derived from international co-operation. In particular, while official acts performed by the Government of the United States of America on behalf of or concerning the Hawaiian Kingdom since the occupation began on 12 August 1898 are illegal and invalid, this invalidity cannot be extended to those acts, such as, for instance, the registration of births, deaths and marriages, the effects of which can be ignored only to the detriment of the inhabitants of the Territory. e) With respect to non-member States of the United Nations, the illegality of the United States of Americas presence in the Hawaiian Kingdom is opposable to all States in the sense of barring erga omnes the legality of a situation which is maintained in violation of international law: in particular, no State which enters into relations with the United States of America concerning the Hawaiian Kingdom may expect the United Nations or its Members to recognize the validity or effects of such relationship, or of the consequences thereof. The acting Government of the Hawaiian Kingdom designated David Keanu Sai, Ph.D., its Ambassador-at-large, as Agent for these proceedings, and Dexter Keeaumoku Kaiama, Esq., its Attorney General, as Deputy Agent. Dr. Sai served as lead Agent for the Hawaiian Kingdom in Larsen v. Hawaiian Kingdom (1999-2001) and presented oral arguments at the Peace Palace on December 7, 8, and 11, 2000. Members of the arbitral tribunal included Professor James Crawford, SC, as presiding arbitrator, with Mr. Gavan Griffith, QC, and Professor Christopher Greenwood, QC, serving as associate arbitrators.
