Since rights in property are a question of municipal law, and since international law cannot of itself have direct effect in municipal law1, state succession cannot of itself extinguish the title of a natural or private municipal legal person to property situate within the territory concerned2. At the same time, customary international law does not prohibit a successor state from extinguishing any such title, subject to any restrictions imposed by customary international law itself3 or by treaty4.
