Proposed by: Bakhton
The World Assembly,
Understanding that numerous circumstances result in the occurrence of extrajudicial activity in a nation, such as the overworking or underfunding of the police, corruption of a nations legal system, or the base need for retributive justice innate within us all,
Believing, however, that the prejudiced punishment of unconvicted or untried suspects to be often immoral due to it often leading to instances where innocent people are harmed, and that proper attention should be given to ensuring a fair trial of all persons incriminated of unsavory acts under the rule of law,
Hereby defines for the purpose of this resolution:
Extrajudicial punishment as punishment by civilians or governments causing physical and/or mental harm apart from a formal legal authority for those suspected of criminality or transgressions against society or persons.
Physical and/or mental harm as a state of immense distress for a person in both or either their physical and mental well-being, resulting in the sensation of physical hurting and/or psychological trauma.
No member nation shall allow for the occurrence of extrajudicial punishment through refusing to enact proper legal punitive measures on those who enact the aforementioned punishments on suspected individuals.
All member nations must make extrajudicial punishment a criminal or civil offence subject to the sentencing of the differing jurisdictions of their respective legal systems.
Clarifies that nothing in this legislation criminalizes interference in criminal activity until the appropriate representatives of the law arrive to arrest the suspected individuals, as long as those individuals do call upon those representatives within a reasonable amount of time.
Clarifies further that this proposal neither applies to nations lacking a formal legal system nor applies to the issues of proper parenting.
Encourages further neutrality and objectivity in member nations courts and criminal procedures, along with measures to mend social ills that lead to prejudiced extrajudicial punishment against certain groups of people.
Debate this resolution in the General Assembly forum.
