Income derived by a resident of a Contracting State from the alienation of any shares or comparable interests, such as interests in a partnership or trust, may be taxed in the other Contracting State if, at any time during the 365 days preceding the alienation, these shares or comparable interests derived more than 50 per cent of their value directly or indirectly from immovable property, as defined in Article 6 (Income from Immovable Property), situated in that other State.
