A possible defense against the forced accusations is that the other party also participated in forced activities called “impure hands.” Article 23 of the Indian Treaty focuses mainly on the subject-matter, i.e. the object of the conclusion of the contract. It finds that where such an object is unlawful and contrary to public policy, the treaty itself is illegal and void and has no legal enforceability.
