  Repeal: "On Universal Jurisdiction"
Posted by: TempestShadow - 8 hours ago - Forum: General Assembly Proposals - No Replies

Repeal "[post=23823680]On Universal Jurisdiction[/post]"
Category: Repeal[/align]

This august World Assembly,

Concerned that the target resolution requires nations to prosecute in section 3, but that the target does not also require that nations provide prosecutors with information they may have, meaning that the target sets up a prosecutorial scheme where nations may be prosecuting persons without a full accounting of the facts,

Observing that section 7 of the target resolution “[f]orbids the World Assembly from preempting a member state’s claim to universal jurisdiction under this resolution, including but not limited to through an international criminal court or a substantially similar institution”,

Seeing that it is patently obvious that this section prohibits the Assembly from establishing an international court,

Believing that a lack of such a court means:

  1. there are few prosecutions of war criminals and perpetrators of genocide, since (i) prosecutorial discretion exists, due to differing interpretations of section 3(c) and (ii) such criminals and perpetrators would not willingly move themselves to jurisdictions which would prosecute them and

  2. victims of war crimes and other crimes against humanity are unlikely to receive justice, as even when prosecutions occur, they will likely be in friendly jurisdictions, meaning that they will be slaps on the wrist,
Expressing its discontent at this state of affairs, where criminality of the worst degree is not punished and where the international rules-based order is unable to deter or bring justice to would-be tyrants from engaging in mass murder or other heinous crimes,

Saddened at the deaths caused by the Assembly’s inability to act and the incredible injustices that the Assembly is unable to take action to right, and

Calling for the creation of a compulsory, fair, and effective international tribunal to resolve these issues, hereby:

Repeals GA 312 “On Universal Jurisdiction”.

The 10 year redistribution begins for the top 16% of the nations welthiest. A gamble to have great gains. But most will lose. 

Day 1: Many Hesitate, but government officials are automatically soled on day one. Individuals are first to cash in and sell to retain their value. 3 day sales period begins.

Day 2: Peaking 1213, most sports industries and some Base goods businesses sell early as usual. 

Day 3:

  [AT VOTE] Commend Xoriet
Posted by: TempestShadow - Yesterday, 05:02 AM - Forum: Security Council Proposals - Replies (2)

Category: Commendation | Nominee: Xoriet | Proposed by: Escade[/align]

The Security Council:

Acknowledging the estimable impact that Xoriet, a power house nation and mentor, has had on the NationStates community over six years;

Recognizing the nation’s crucial role in shaping the East Pacific, as their former WA Delegate and member, by:
  • Aiding in developing and promoting activity in the region, through all branches of government; over a lengthy time period;
  • Enhancing the region's foreign affairs including providing guidance on treaties with TNP, Osiris, and Taijitu and forging unofficial relations across the ideological spectrum;
  • Building and gaining positive international prestige for the region and setting the region on a course that resounds positively today;

Appreciating the nation's leadership skills in leading the Eastern Pacific Sovereign Army (EPSA) to its golden age and making it one of the preeminent militaries of its time, which included such tasks as:
  • Capturing Nazi Europa in 2014 in unison with 11 other organizations;
  • Defending the European Union in 2014 from a joint raid by TBH, TBR, UIAF;
  • Cooperating with every major feeder and sinker military in 2014;
  • Hitting 100 detags per week during that time period;
  • Growing EPSA membership to a high of 20 military members;
  • Helping organize the 60 nations needed to liberate Anne Frank from the fascist occupiers in December 2014;
  • And successfully completing 315 individual operations between March 2014 and April 2015;

Observing that the nation has produced a veritable library of material on a variety of scholarly topics including safety, security, writing, politics amongst others that have been well received at international conventions such as the NationStates World Fair (NSWF);

Respecting the efforts made by Xorietian philosophers in writing and publishing well-received guides on how nations may better interact;

Lauding their role in leading the way in establishing guidelines for a safer NS community through the recognition and prevention of abuse as well as how to escape from it;

Believing that puppet nations of Xoriet have always striven to engage in military action with the utmost integrity and that the nation has had an important impact on the military dynamic as a leader: for example, in addition to leadership and intelligence roles, the nation was the most active among nations in the restoration of regions damaged by raids to their former state during the summer of 2014 and reached several such milestones over their military career.

Remarking that the military capability of the nation Anera, a nation under the control of Xoriet, resulted in the revival of Lone Wolves United so it reached a high of 70 ops and 22 members;

Impressed that the nation has estimable intel knowledge and intelligence networks and is responsible for being a power broker in international relations as well as training and mentoring new power brokers;

Honoring the nation's leadership, innovations, and Xoriet's role as an invaluable mentor to prominent nations, including several WA Delegates and founders, and their ability to develop connections and maintain relationships between nations and regions;

Hereby commends Xoriet.

Co-authored with Kuriko, Ramaeus, and Severisen.

Concerned that ill-intentioned governments might engage in violence against the weakest of those under its jurisdiction,

Recognizes systematic or otherwise intentional and statistically disproportionate violence perpetrated against a group, forceful isolation of a group in designated areas, removal of a group from designated areas, or the forceful institution of population controls on a group as acts of genocide,

  2. Highlights that case-by-case imprisonment of, displacement of, or use of force against individuals does not target a general group, and so does not constitute genocide,
