COXVENTION-GREECE. APRIL 25,1928. 2737 ARTICLE II. The President of the Hellenic Republic agrees that Greece will raise no objection to the boarding of private vessels under the Greek flag outside the limits of terri- tonal waters by the authorities of the United States, its terri- tories or possessions in order that enquiries may be addressed to those on board and an examina- tion be made of the ship's papers for the purpose of ascertaining whether the vessel or those on board are endeavoring to import or have imported alcoholic bever- ages into the United States, its territories or possessions in viola- tion of the laws there in force. When such enquiries and exami- nation show a reasonable ground for suspicion, a search of the vessel which shall have given ground for such suspicion, may be effected. ARTICLE III. If there is reasonable cause for belief that the vessel has com- mitted or is committing or at- tempting to commit an offense against the laws of the United States, its territories or posses- sions prohibiting the importation of alcoholic beverages, the vessel may be seized and taken into a port of the United States, its ter- ritories or possessions for adjudi- cation in accordance with the pertinent provisions of law. ARTICLE IV. The boarding referred to in Article II shall not be made at a greater distance from the coast of the United States, its territories or possessions than can be tra- versed in one hour by the vessel suspected of endeavoring to com- mit the offense. In cases, how- ever, in which the liquor is in- tended to be conveyed to tho United States, its territories or possessions by a vessel other than the one boarded and searched, it shall be the speed of the former vessel and not the sreed of the ARTICLE II.
