General Assembly Resolution # 614
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #576 “Preventing Identity Theft” (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Puzzled at Clause 5 of GA#576 "Preventing Identity Theft", which mandates that "[i]n cases where victims were affected financially by the relevant identity theft, the total sum of losses shall be repaid to the victim",
Dismayed that if member states are unable to recover all of the money stolen by the perpetrators of identity theft, they may have to pay the victims themselves in order to avoid facing fines and sanctions for noncompliance,
Shocked that member states will have to resort to paying exorbitant amounts of money to victims of identity theft due to the multitude of phishing and credit card scams that occur on a daily basis, resulting in less money being available for disaster relief or pillow advertisement campaigns,
Distressed that this clause may even prompt unscrupulous residents of WA states to fraudulently claim to be victims of identity theft in order to obtain "monetary compensation", further draining member states of funds, and
Believing that this critical flaw with GA#576 is sufficient to warrant its repeal so as to prevent more member states from forking out precious taxpayer money to compensate those negligent enough to fall for these identity theft scams,
Hereby repeals General Assembly Resolution #576, "Preventing Identity Theft".
