GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL
ID: railana_1422151263

On Universal Jurisdiction

A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
 

Category: International Security

Strength: Significant

Proposed by: Railana

Description: Recognizing the moral depravity of war crimes and crimes against humanity,

Believing that such crimes are so heinous that the international community bears a collective responsibility to bring those who are guilty of such crimes to justice,

Concerned, however, about the potential lack of accountability and abuses of power associated with granting criminal jurisdiction to an international court,

Convinced, therefore, that the best means to fulfill this responsibility is to grant individual World Assembly member states the right and obligation to prosecute such individuals,

The General Assembly,

  1. Defines "universal jurisdiction" as the right to claim criminal jurisdiction for a crime allegedly committed by an individual, regardless of where or when the crime was allegedly committed, or the citizenship, nationality, or country of residence of that individual;

  2. Declares that all World Assembly member states have the right to claim universal jurisdiction with respect to any act that constitutes a "crime against humanity" or a "war crime" under World Assembly legislation, or for which universal jurisdiction is implicitly or explicitly recognized under World Assembly legislation;

  3. Requires member states to safely and fairly prosecute individuals suspected of committing an act listed in section 2 in cases where:

    1. the individual is within the territorial jurisdiction of that member state,

    2. the individual has not already been given a fair trial for that crime by another state, and

    3. there is evidence which would lead a reasonably intelligent but cautious person to believe that the individual is guilty of that crime;

  4. Directs member states to ensure that the severity of the sentence assigned to an individual following a conviction of a crime listed in section 2 of this resolution is consistent with the severity of their crime;

  5. Strongly encourages member states to volunteer any evidence relevant to the prosecution of an individual for a crime listed in section 2 of this resolution;

  6. Permits member states to transfer an individual subject to prosecution under section 3 of this resolution to the jurisdiction of another member state that is able and willing to safely and fairly prosecute that individual for the same alleged crime or crimes;

  7. Forbids 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, to the extent permitted by this and previous World Assembly resolutions;

  8. Clarifies that nothing in this resolution grants member states the right to claim universal jurisdiction over individuals that are not currently within the member state's territorial jurisdiction;

  9. Further clarifies that nothing in this resolution precludes the World Assembly from passing further legislation on criminal jurisdiction, international police or judicial cooperation, or extradition.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL

Repeal "Nuclear Arms Protocol"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#308

Proposed by: Union of the Kyrinian Red Star States

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #308: Nuclear Arms Protocol (Category: Global Disarmament; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The World Assembly,

APPLAUDING the efforts of the resolution to protect civilians from the threat of nuclear weapons,

AFFIRMING that there is a need for an international law to protect civilians from such a threat,

REGRETTING, however, that the aforementioned resolution does not provide such protection from civilians,

ARGUING that nothing in the resolution actually disallows a nation from targeting nuclear weapons at a civilian population,

NOTING that any possible hybrid weapons, particularly explosive weapons powered by multiple sources including nuclear, is not covered under this law as it is fails the requirements of a nuclear weapon as defined by the resolution,

FURTHER NOTING that the resolution fails to account for attacks on military targets residing within civilian populations

ASSERTING that civilian populations should not be deliberately targeted, even when shielding military assets, and that the resolution does not attempt to protect civilians in such a case,

CONCERNED that while a member nation may take precautions to not deliberately attack civilian populations, it does not prevent them from actually using nuclear weapons against civilian populations,

CONFUSED that the resolution permits the case that a nation's nuclear retaliation as a response to attacks on civilian populations may deliberately target an opposing civilian population,

SUGGESTING that future resolutions concerning the issue would focus on evacuation efforts and civilian bunker constructions in addition to preventive measures

CONCLUDING that the resolution, although written with the best interest of the people, fails to provide protection to the civilians of member nations,

Hereby Repeals General Assembly Resolution #308, "Nuclear Arms Protocol".

Stricter rehabilitation guidelines for mines

A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
 

Category: Environmental

Industry Affected: Mining

Proposed by: Foefel

Description: Recent study show a lack in the rehabilitation of the environment at large scale mines in the last decade. With the increase in deforestation and the pollution of ground and surface water stricter guidelines must be made for mines during and after so to decrease the impact on the environment.
1. Mines must treat waste water before depositing in in dams, by means of removing sludge, trace metals , murcury and reducing sulfate levels of the water

2. Mines must also reuse 40% of the water and the remaining water must be released In to the environment after an approved laboratory has confirmed the quality.

3. When a mine closes the mining company must start the rehabilitation process of flora, by closing and filling shafts and holes made during the mining process and by introducing indigenous flora back into the area.

4. A mining company must only be awarded a new mining permit after five years,to make sure rehabilitation is successful on any previous mining sites.

Approvals: 2 (Courtian, The Tardis In A Tardis In A Tardis)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 72 more approvals)
