Category: Civil Rights
Strength: Strong
Proposed by: [Image: wallenburg__564660t2.png]Wallenburg
Recognizing the persistent issue of noncompliance with World Assembly legislation within member nations,
Also recognizing that in addressing its mandates solely to its member governments, the World Assembly effectively grants member states infinite means of evading compliance, and thereby finds itself with few powers before an anarchic body of noncompliant members, and
Concluding that, with little material force to wield against noncompliant actors, the World Assembly must resort to the moral force of a court of law free from the corrupting influences of individual member states,
Understanding that by guaranteeing the rule of law in a judicial setting, the World Assembly may safeguard the right of all inhabitants of member states to justice,
The World Assembly hereby,
 
  1. Establishes a World Assembly Judiciary Committee, tasked with appointing officials to (a) several trial courts, each over which one judge may preside, and (b) several appellate courts, each over which three judges may preside, to consider and receive cases appealed from the trial courts,
     
  2. Tasks the World Assembly Judiciary Committee with overseeing the conduct and judicial responsibilities of the judges and defense attorneys appointed to the several courts under its administration, and exercising full discretion in hearing cases brought before it,
     
  3. Tasks the World Assembly Compliance Commission with speedily reporting evidence relevant to World Assembly Judiciary Committee court proceedings to both adversaries, with the approval of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee,
     
  4. Declares that any entity within the jurisdiction of any member state may bring charges against any other entity within the jurisdiction of any member state for damages done to them which violate the terms of extant World Assembly law, to the extent that such legal action does not contradict the mandates of previously passed and henceforward standing World Assembly resolutions,
     
  5. Grants the adversaries in a case before a court of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee all legal rights they enjoy according to the mandates of World Assembly law, and any privileges that the World Assembly Judiciary Committee finds necessary to guarantee those rights in a manner most practical and sensitive to the cultures of the adversaries,
     
    [list=lower-latin]
  6. Also grants, with the prompt consent of both adversaries, the adversaries all legal rights they might enjoy in an equivalent hearing under the laws of the nation of origin of one of the adversaries,
 
[*]Permits courts of the World Assembly Judicial Committee to try a defendant in absentia if the defendant communicates their written consent not to be present at trial, or the defendant repeatedly engages in disruptive conduct during court proceedings or positively refuses to appear at trial,
 
[*]Allows a court of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee, upon accepting a case brought before it, to bring itself to the adversaries of the case, should one or both of them be unable to leave their member nation, and requires member states to permit the entry and exit of court officials for this purpose,
 
[*]Declares further that member states shall fully and with all possible haste carry out the rulings of the courts of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee,
 
[*]Requires that, should the ruling of a court of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee stipulate the incarceration of a guilty party, the member state from which the guilty party originates shall perform and maintain the incarceration of the guilty party,
 
[list=lower-latin]
[*]Directs the World Assembly Judiciary Committee to select a fully compliant and cooperative alternative member state to incarcerate the guilty party, if the member state of origin demonstrates an inability or unwillingness to carry out the full ruling of the court, and with the consent of the selected alternative member state,
 
[*]Authorizes the World Assembly Judiciary Committee to offer compensation to selected alternative member states as an incentive to volunteer to incarcerate those so sentenced,
[/list]
 
[*]Guarantees that no court of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee shall impose capital punishment, or any otherwise torturous punishments, upon any guilty party, nor shall it compel any member state to render such punishments upon any guilty party, nor shall the World Assembly require member states to defer to the courts of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee any legal case that the justice system of a member state has taken up, nor shall the World Assembly Judiciary Committee or its courts in any way violate previously passed and henceforward standing World Assembly resolutions.
