10. Blockade and angary; damage to and seizure of property.

In time of war the Crown may promulgate blockades of ports or any portion of the coast belonging to an enemy1. The Crown has also, by right of its prerogative, a jus angariae, that is to say a right to appropriate the property of a neutral where necessity requires in time of war. This right of angary can only be exercised subject to the right of the neutral owner to receive compensation, which may be enforced by legal process
