CHAPTER III - TAXATION OF INCOME  

ARTICLE 19   Government Service  

(1)  
Remuneration, other than a pension or annuity, paid by one of the Contracting States or a political subdivision or local authority of that State to any individual in respect of services rendered in the discharge of governmental functions shall be taxable only in that State. However, such remuneration shall be taxable only in the other Contracting State if the services are rendered in that other State and the recipient is a resident of that other State who:

(3)  
Where remuneration is paid under a development assistance programme of a Contracting State, out of funds exclusively supplied by that State, to a specialist or volunteer seconded to the other Contracting State with the consent of that other State, such remuneration shall be deemed to have been paid by the first-mentioned State and shall be taxable only in that State.
