Proposed by: The Aligned People
The General Assembly,
Recognizing that any nation, whether at peace or at war, may opt to engage in activities of espionage against other nations at any given point in time,
Believing the act of espionage challenges the sovereignty of nations as any confidential information a government may have in its possession is the property of said government, and forcibly obtaining that property may hinder that government from carrying out its duties if said information becomes known to the populous of any nation,
Asserting that all nations have the right to prosecute an agent they have captured within their borders in accordance with the laws of said nation,
Further believing that a found agent may not be treated in a cruel manner and cannot have any of their civil rights withheld from them by the victim nation,
Understanding that nations at war may be more inclined to engage in acts of espionage against their enemies,
Deducing that a public reprimand of a nation that has been caught committing the act of espionage will decrease the likelihood of further acts of espionage, not only by the nation being publicly reprimanded but also by other member nations,
1. Creates a committee that will review and assess all cases of espionage, between nations at peace, that have become known to a victim nation within the World Assembly that take place after the passing of this resolution. The committee shall be known as the International Committee for Espionage Review, or the ICER and may only act against member nations of the World Assembly;
a. The "ICER" shall make known, to the international community, the nation of which was committing the act of espionage;
b. The "ICER" may request any documents, paper or otherwise, necessary to ensure that a found agent was legitimately committing the act of espionage as defined in this resolution;
c. The "ICER," to ensure a found agent is properly prosecuted, will generate a report for the victim nation with any laws that the found agent violated of the victim nation during the course of the found agent committing the act of espionage;
d. The "ICER" may request a representative to appear before them from the government committing the act of espionage to provide reasoning for engaging in espionage;
e. The "ICER" may issue public statements of condemnation on behalf of the victim nation;
2. Requires member nations to comply with all requests from the International Committee for Espionage Review that are within its power to make as defined in this resolution;
3. Requires member nations, that continue to take part in espionage, to ensure that their agents in no way impact the lives of civilians;
4. Declares that nations may prosecute a found agent within their borders, with no influence outside of the victim nations government to hinder the process of the found agent's prosecution;
5. Declares that member nations may in no way infringe on the civil rights of any found agents that are within their custody;
6. Urges member nations to severely limit any and all operations of espionage during times of peace;
7. Releases nations at war from the authority of the "International Committee for Espionage Review" so long as a nation at war does not engage in acts of espionage with nations they are at peace with;
a. espionage, for the purposes of this resolution, as one nation, or multiple allied nations, sending an agent of their government(s) to another nation, to enter their borders either legally or illegally, with the intent of obtaining, without consent of the victim nation, confidential information held by the victim nation's government and reporting back that information to the government(s) of the sending nation(s) of the agent;
b. agent, for the purposes of this resolution, as a person that works for the government(s) that assigned them the task of committing the act of espionage;
c. found agent, for the purposes of this proposal as an agent that has been taken into custody by the victim nation they are committing the act of espionage against;
d. victim nation, for the purposes of this resolution, as the nation that the act of espionage was committed against;
e. "civilian," for the purposes of this resolution, as any person not in a military, police force, or equivalent, and is not partaking in the act of espionage.
