GA Resolution #6: Fairness In Criminal Trials

GA Resolution #6: Fairness In Criminal Trials

Postby Axxell » Sat Nov 10, 2018 2:13 pm

Ibrahim El Salefi, President of the General Assembly of the World Congress

Hoping to improve fairness in Justice and during Criminal Trials, I would like to present a resolution to enhance the right of human beings towards the Justice.

Fairness In Criminal Trials
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.

The World Congress,

UNDERSTANDING that anyone may be accused of a criminal act, whether innocent or not;

DESIRING that the innocent not be wrongly punished and that the guilty not be wrongly exonerated;

BELIEVING that rigorous examination of evidence will aid this cause;

RECOGNISING that nations have many different equally valid legal systems;

OBSERVING that persons from many nations travel to other nations for a variety of reasons;

CONVINCED that agreement amongst member states on the basic legal rights of individuals concerning trials can further protect travellers and improve relations between nations;

MANDATES that all persons charged with criminal offences in the jurisdictions of a nation shall be brought to trial with such reasonable speed as is consistent with both prosecution and defence properly assembling available relevant evidence;

DEFINES "criminal offences" as those prosecuted by the state or a state-appointed actor;

REQUIRES that such trials be directed impartially by someone competent in the area of law concerned;

This proposal probably needs to be extended, so, the Presidency invites the nations into the World Congress to express themself on this Resolution proposing how to complete its text.

Thank you

Noumonde fully supports this Resolution. Our country has a long history of Canrillaise minority rule, under which the courts were frequently arbitrary and corrupt. Things are better now, but our society is still dealing with the legacy of what happened in the past.

Every person deserves a fair trial if they are accused of a crime. This is a basic human right.

I would like to make a brief special mention of the terrible "Revolutionary Tribunals" currently functioning in Barmenia. This is precisely the kind of practice the World Congress needs to take a stand against, and I hope it will do so by passing this Resolution.
