Uppsala Convention
« on: August 28, 2017, 09:15:54 PM »
    Preamble

    For Centuries there have been unwritten codes of conduct during times of war. As the nature of modern warfare has changed so to must the conduct of those involved in it. This document is the first attempt at a legally binding formal code of conduct in the history of Mundus. While we recognise that war is at times inevitable what is not inevitable is the horrors that nations inflict upon those with no choice about their involvement. This document seeks to protect these people and grant a measure of protection to those directly involved in conflict.

    Objectives

    1. To create an internationally agreed code of conduct for those involved in conflict
    2. To reaffirm, in writing, the human rights of those affected by conflict.
    3. To create a legally binding document that will hold nations accountable for their conduct in war.

    Institutions

    The creation of this treaty will bring into existence the following institutions

    1. The Convention Court – A legally binding international court that will sit in judgement of those accused of breaking this treaty. It shall consist of one judge from each signatory nation, three of these shall be picked at random to sit in judgement of a case. A judge may not sit in judgement of a person from their own nation. For the purpose of this document the Convention Court shall be known from this point simply as The Court. The Court has the right to sit in judgement of people accused of breaking the convention and if they are found guilty may pass sentence using laws from the accused own nation as a guideline. Court cases will always take place within a neutral nation and those found guilty may appeal on grounds of unfair sentence or unfair process. Appeals will be considered by all judges save those of the nations involved in the case, a majority decision will either permit or dismiss an appeal.

    2. The Convention Advisory Committee – From this point on in the document referred to as the CAC. The CAC will be a panel made up of two members of each signatory nation. They shall have the power to investigate allegations of breaking this treaty. They will gather evidence and decide whether a prosecution is warranted. Should they decide a prosecution is warranted they shall issue a request for the accused to be extradited to the nation nominated for The Court. Any defendant shall be afforded the Rights granted by Articles 4, 6 and 7 of the Mundus Convention on Human Rights, this applies even if their home nation is not a signatory member of that convention.

    Right to liberty and security1

     Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person. No one shall be deprived of his liberty save in the following cases and in accordance with a procedure prescribed by law:

    (a) the lawful detention of a person after conviction by a competent court;
    (b) the lawful arrest or detention of a person for noncompliance with the lawful order of a court or in order to secure the fulfilment of any obligation prescribed by law;
    (c) the lawful arrest or detention of a person effected for the purpose of bringing him before the competent legal authority on reasonable suspicion of having committed an offence or when it is reasonably considered necessary to prevent his committing an offence or fleeing after having done so;
    (d) the detention of a minor by lawful order for the purpose of educational supervision or his lawful detention for the purpose of bringing him before the competent legal authority;

    (f) the lawful arrest or detention of a person to prevent his effecting an unauthorised entry into the country or of a person against whom action is being taken with a view to deportation or extradition.

    2. Everyone who is arrested shall be informed promptly, in a language which he understands, of the reasons for his arrest and of any charge against him.

    3. Everyone arrested or detained in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 1 (c) of this Article shall be brought promptly before a judge or other officer authorised by law to exercise judicial power and shall be entitled to trial within a reasonable time or to release pending trial. Release may be conditioned by guarantees to appear for trial.

    4. Everyone who is deprived of his liberty by arrest or detention shall be entitled to take proceedings by which the lawfulness of his detention shall be decided speedily by a court and his release ordered if the detention is not lawful.

    5. Everyone who has been the victim of arrest or detention in contravention of the provisions of this Article shall have an enforceable right to compensation.

    Right to a fair trial and no punishment without law.

     In the determination of his civil rights and obligations or of any criminal charge against him, everyone is entitled to a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time by an independent and impartial tribunal established by law. Judgment shall be pronounced publicly but the press and public may be excluded from all or part of the trial in the interests of morals, public order or national security in a democratic society, where the interests of juveniles or the protection of the private life of the parties so require, or to the extent strictly necessary in the opinion of the court in special circumstances where publicity would prejudice the interests of justice.

    2. Everyone charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law.

    3. No one shall be held guilty of any criminal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a criminal offence under national or international law at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the criminal offence was committed.

    4. This Article shall not prejudice the trial and punishment of any person for any act or omission which, at the time when it was committed, was criminal according to the general principles of law recognised by civilised nations.

    5. Everyone charged with a criminal offence has the following minimum rights:
    (a) to be informed promptly, in a language which he understands and in detail, of the nature and cause of the accusation against him;
    (b) to have adequate time and facilities for the preparation of his defence;
    (c) to defend himself in person or through legal assistance of his own choosing or, if he has not sufficient means to pay for legal assistance, to be given it free when the interests of justice so require;
    (d) to examine or have examined witnesses against him and to obtain the attendance and examination of witnesses on his behalf under the same conditions as witnesses against him;
    (e) to have the free assistance of an interpreter if he cannot understand or speak the language used in court.

    Quote from: Open Letter of the Frystjördian National Assembly
    Salutations,

    The National Assembly, in the name of the Libertarian Republic of Frystjörd and Frystjördians people, wish to ratify this Convention, seen a mark of civility among the nations. Even if we do not possess an army, nor even a single weapon following our perception of life and culture, we are delighted that the international community is doing further steps towards a moderate and more Human Mundus.

    Those basic rights expressed in this Convention shall be applied all throughout the Mundus, as war is already too terrible to be considered. We are looking forward to more adhesions and wish to many nations to follow our path towards disarmament.

    Sincerely yours,
    - The Libertarian Republic of Frystjörd National Assembly

    As a reminder for Dave there was a 2nd Uppsala Convention Meeting in Lodja that amended parts of the treaty. The version posted here is not the amended version.

    Fellow Assembly, Member of the Senate,

    A long path towards such beautiful piece of paper, a path of many centuries, some may even state milleniums, for finally having the Mundus agreeing on a thing about Human Rights in armed conflicts. War has its horrors certainly but may represent a necessity in grave times, and I believe in it, however, its regulation, in order to prevent extreme paths to be taken has to be placed in the borders, preventing anyone from entering or passing. Naturally, there shall be illegal exceptions to be made, by signatories or non-signatories, and we shall strongly condemn those in order to keep this Convention as the only rule, and a red line for neutral parties before involvement, not by party, but by need.

    Not all the Mundus may be on that same page, but this remains a pleasure to be able to claim that the Heyran Republic shall definitely be part of those following this path of civility in war.
