Summary: The Apartheid Convention was the ultimate step in the condemnation of apartheid as it not only declared that apartheid was unlawful because it violated the Charter of the United Nations, but in addition it declared apartheid to be criminal. The Apartheid Convention was adopted by the General Assembly on November 30, 1973, by 91 votes in favor, four against (Portugal, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States) and 26 abstentions. It came into force on July 18, 1976. As of August 2008, it has been ratified by 107 States.
