Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: The Forest of Aeneas
The World Assembly:
Believing that collective punishment is grossly unfair, as it purposefully targets the innocent, and therefore a serious violation of sapient rights; and
Observing that collective punishment is a favoured tool of authoritarian regimes to suppress opposition;
Hereby, within the confines of past, standing World Assembly law:
Bans member states from purposefully punishing, convicting, or otherwise targetting for punishment, any individual for:
Any act they did not personally commit or knowingly conspire, suppress evidence of, encourage, or facilitate; or
Connection or relationship to an individual, on the basis that that individual has committed a punishable or unlawful act;
Demands that all past convictions contravening this resolution by member states be fully rescinded; and
Clarifies that this resolution does not ban member states from purposefully punishing, convicting, or otherwise retaliating against persons for:
Membership in a proscribed organisation; or
A punishable act unambiguously committed under their authority.
