Proclamation, dated November 22 i 884
To ail who may peruse this, to wit, the prohibition to carry slaves, which exists
from of old, still continues in the same manner at present; therefore, every carrier
of slaves, or everyone who helps him, commits the crime of disobedience, and is
liable on that account to severe punishment, in order that another one may not
commit it, or he who has committed it may not perpetrate the same again. That
this may not be concealed, and salaam.

Proclamations issued by the Sultan regarding arms and ammunition—
1898 and 1912
Proclamation by the Sultan of Muscai forbidding the export of arms and
ammunition to India and Persia, dated January 13 1898
Be it known to such of our subjects as see this that, whereas the British and
Persian Governments have represented to us that they are desirous of preventing
introduction of arms and ammunition into India and Persia, and that there is reason
to think that many are exported from Muscat and taken to those two above-named
countries, we have resolved to join them and to assist them as far as it lies in our
power in suppressing this trade in arms and ammunition between Muscat and India
and Persia. We therefore warn (our subjects) that all the arms and ammunition
sent to those two countries will be confiscated and those engaged in this trade will

arms and ammunition from our dominions to Indig and Persia.

in Indian and Persian waters suspected to contain arms and ammunition for Indian
