[Res.] A Resolution to Condemn the United Empire of Akarina for Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes

Esteemed members of the Assembly,

I rise today to introduce Resolution 24, a resolution that underscores our unwavering commitment to human rights, the protection of civilians, and the upholding of international law. The purpose of this resolution is clear: to condemn the Kingdom of Akarina for its egregious violations of human rights and its commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity. In recent weeks, the United Empire of Akarina has perpetrated heinous acts that shook the conscience of the international community. The detonation of a nuclear bomb in the city of Monarque, resulting in the deaths of over 70,000 innocent civilians, represents a flagrant disregard for the sanctity of human life and a blatant violation of international norms. Additionally, the torture and decapitation of 92 alleged pirates captured by the Akarinan navy in the Gulf of Good Omen demonstrates a complete disregard for the principles of humanity and decency.

It is imperative that we, as members of the World Forum, condemn these atrocities in the strongest possible terms and demand accountability for those responsible. The Pacifica Classification System introduced by the Krauanagaz Human Rights Commission and Eflad’s Index have provided us with standardized frameworks to use for evaluating nations’ adherence to international norms, and it is incumbent upon us to uphold the humanitarian principles enshrined in the Charter of the World Forum. We must call upon the United Empire of Akarina to immediately cease all hostilities against its civilian population and to fully comply with international humanitarian law and human rights standards. Furthermore, we must demand that Akarina conduct a prompt, thorough, and impartial investigation into these incidents and hold those responsible to account before the law.

As representatives of the international community, we have a duty to provide humanitarian assistance to the victims of these egregious crimes and to support efforts to address the developing humanitarian crisis in the Gulf of Good Omen. We must reaffirm our commitment to justice, accountability, and the rule of law, and we must be prepared to take further action as necessary to uphold these principles and ensure the protection of civilians in conflict-afflicted areas. I urge every one of you to support this resolution and send a clear message to the United Empire of Akarina that the world will not tolerate such flagrant violations of human rights and international law. Together, let us stand in solidarity with the victims of these atrocities and work tirelessly to uphold the values of peace, justice, and humanity.

Thank you.

The United Provinces of Rhayna, Alla-gy and Nea-gy agree on most if not all the points presented in this resolution. However, we believe that it’s counterproductive to let a nation that has made such a reckless and cruel use of weapons of mass destruction continue having possession of said weapons, and discussing a way of making sure they never use them again is on the best of benefits for us all.

The Federal Republic of Kliegme agrees on the points made by this resolution. However, information suggests that the United Empire of Akarina is currently in a state of internal conflict, to this regard we should also make ways to pacify the situation.

"Esteemed excellencies and representatives,

The substantive reason behind this proposal is understandable and justified. The solutions it proposes are in procedural matters correct and formally legal within the jurisdiction of the World Forum. However, the latter part is which limits it. All proposals which seek to uphold peace and prosperity in the world are null in practice, as they are limited to treating symptoms rather than the cause of such occurrences. The specific entity which these Resolutions address don’t matter, as each of them follow the same pattern, with Akarina merely being the current example.

I must also express criticism towards this particular proposal in its Normative-Causation and Practical-Effectual portions (covered in Sections A and C respectively).
Re-affirmation of principles ought not to be of normative nature, it ought to be mandatory and automatic. Expressing concern as a purpose does not yield anything. To merely condemn the use of WMDs by any entity is to belittle the catastrophic potential of them and banalities WMDs.
The entirety of practical solutions, which serve to manifest stated purposes, rely entirely on the good will of the Akarins officials which are the convicts causing these crimes, disturbances, and instabilities.

(…)

We are against this resolution for the above reasons. However, as a temporary solution to this particular situation, we propose calling for sanctioning of Akarinas public officials and state offices – As a compromise. Ideally, we see an IACO intervention as the best suitable solution, after which the public officials would be tried before the International Court. Alas, we do not think these are likely to gain approval."

“I pass the floor to the next Representative.”

Akarinan emperor Haruki Quirin has requested the removal of sanctions on Akarina as everyone responsible for the use of WMDs on Monarque is dead.
Royal Air Defense General Michael Koch was executed recently, and Former emperor Takeshi Quirin died of poisoning.

Additionally the officers on the IAN Krieger have been put on trial.

Sedunn supports this resolution. But we agree that further action from the WF is prudent. It might be better suited for a second resolution however.

On the matter of removing sanctions, this is up to the individual nations imposing them. Sedunn will continue imposing sanctions until we are satisfied that such a crime cannot happen again and will work with other members to see a WF resolution to that end. With that in mind, I invite the Akarinan representative to outline a plan on how to prevent the use of WMDs on its own population and the extrajudicial killings of foreign citizens. It is regrettable that those indicated as responsible for the bombing have been executed, as a fair and transparent trial would have assured the international community that they were indeed responsible, and would have explained the chain of events that led to the nuclear bomb being deployed.

Tavtid Lekmienn
Ambassador of the Republic of Sedunn to the World forum

OOC: I think Section B can be removed as these definitions are more of the generic kind are not referenced in Section C. Most of them are likely already found in other conventions or documents used by the WF and International Court.

Dear Members,

we support this Resolution in its essence, however, we cannot move to a vote due to stylistic and programmatic reasons. We suggest ambassador for Krauganaz to redraft their resolution into a standard resolution format and to implement regulated standard measures under WFR 1d, Sec. F, Subsec. 2. We would recommend measures c, g, (possibly) h, j and highly de jure l as it is the status quo and would formalise this. I would also recommend adding a World Arrest Warrant in accordance with WFR 8 Sec. D, Subsec. 1 and Sec. F. Subsec. 1, as well as an investigation Order according to Sec. D Subsec. 5.

Until then we will not second the motion to vote by my fellow colleague from Besern.

Thank you!

Dear Members,

we are submitting a redraft of the resolution from our colleague from Krauanagazan Federation as we see an alarming escalation right around the corner, especially after the recent amassing of the armed forces on the Past border. We urge our fellow colleagues to move to vote so that a swift reaction is possible to hinder any escalations in the region. We have decided to go with the standard measures j and k and not l to reserve right for further standard measures should Akarina not comply.

Thank you!

Distr.: General

Resolution 24 adopted by the Assembly on DD Month YYYY

Standard Resolution on Situation in Akarina

Section A — Standard Measure(s) Adopted

  1. Installment of human rights observers according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. c.

  2. A condemnation according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. g.

  3. severe economic and diplomatic sanctions according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. j and k.

  4. Outside of Standard Measures, Eflad is jointly submitting an World Arrest Warrant to the IACO under Sec. F, Subsec. 1 of WFR 8 against the government and the emperor of Akarina, reserving the right to enforce other standard measures if Akarina fails to comply.

Section B — Explanation of Necessity and Proportionality

  1. The countries of the World Forum believe that action is required in response to the brief revolt in Akarina, the nuclear strike on the city of Monarque, the thousands of lives lost, and the harsh regime that put an end to the insurrection. To ensure that the recently ordered clean-up of the city, as well as the stabilisation process are going smoothly and in accordance to international laws, an installment of human rights observers according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. c is necessary.

  2. It is alarming that the Akarinan military is gathering on the borders of other countries after receiving sanction. Similarly, the fact that Akarina is so hot-headed and has any true understanding of international affairs is demonstrated by the fact that any country that tries to penalise her is instantly sanctioned by the closure of airspace and threatened with the downing of civilian aircraft. These escalations call for a condemnation according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. g.

  3. Severe economic and diplomatic sanctions according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. j and k are necessary to formalise the de facto state of current sanctions by almost every nation in the south pacific.

  4. The World Arrest Warrant (WAW), especially now that IACO has been reformed, pursues the goal to arrest those responsible for the situation during and following the uprising. Being able to arrest these individuals would be a large step towards stabilisation of the region.

Section C — Implementation

  1. An international expert observer committee on human rights and Grovne Convention is to be created. It shall consist of 14 members and shall be independent of any nation. Its task is to verify whether the process of rebuilding and removal of radioactive materials in Monarque, the judicial processes of those responsible for the uprising and the usage of nuclear weapons are and/or were legal under international law and the Grovne Conventions. It shall present a report on its findings and an action recommendation to the Assembly.

  2. The World Forum hereby condemns the United Empire of Akarina for its actions during and following the recent uprising as well as its reactions to the sanctioning by other states.

  3. The World Forum enacts, for the same reasons as in Sec. C, Subsec. 2, economic and diplomatic sanctions. These shall be lifted when Akarina returns to the international scene as a responsible partner and when diplomatic relations are possible to continue.

The United Provinces of Rhayna, Alla-gy and Nea-gy agree with the redraft, and second the motion to vote from our Besernian colleagues.

Andreus Savvidis,
Rhaynan WF Embassador.

The Federal Republic of Gianatla does - in principle - agree with the current draft by the Speaker. We cannot agree to the motion to vote though due to formal errors within the draft.

WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 1 outlines, that in emergency situations, the standard measures a-f out of the standard measure catalogue can be skipped. We have the opinion, that we can compromise to say, we have an emergency situation at hand and therefore can skip these measures apart from measure c. Skipping standard measure i, considering the missing membership or observer status of Akarina is also acceptable. We do not see, why we should not implement standard measure h, the calling of the International Court, however. We believe, that the International Court should be given the mandate to investigate and eventually find a ruling for the potential crime against humanity that has happened here, when the Akarinan government used a nuclear weapon indiscrimnatory against every human, including civilians, living in the city of Monarque and indirectly threatening the inhabitants of Ravensland and other Frastnian nations as well.

Furthermore we don’t think, the statement, the Republic of Eflad is submitting a WAW has anything to do with this standard resolution and therefore should not find a mentioning in there. Instead we propose the Speaker and his national delegation to submit the WAW independent to this resolution and publicise their action through common means.

Additionally we would request some editorial changes to the resolution draft’s text.

We propose following amendments and would, if accepted in their entirety by the Speaker, motion to vote again:


Add between Section A - Subsections 2 and 3:
3. The calling of the International Court according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. h

Amend Section A - Subsection 3:
3. 4. (…)

Remove Section A - Subsection 4:
4. Outside of Standard Measures, Eflad is jointly submitting an World Arrest Warrant to the IACO under Sec. F, Subsec. 1 of WFR 8 against the government and the emperor of Akarina, reserving the right to enforce other standard measures if Akarina fails to comply.

Amend Section B - Subsection 2:
2. It is alarming that the Akarinan military is gathering on the borders of other countries after receiving sanctions and that their government has further escalated the situation by restricting the airspace of their country to any country sanctioning them and threatened to shoot down passing civilian aircrafts of those countries. Similarly, the fact that Akarina is so hot-headed and has any true understanding of international affairs is demonstrated by the fact that any country that tries to penalise her is instantly sanctioned by the closure of airspace and threatened with the downing of civilian aircraft. These escalations This situation calls for a condemnation according to WFR 1d Sec. F, Subsec. 2, Let. g.

Add between Section B - Subsection 2 and 3:
3. The use of indiscriminatory weapons against a local population, even when revolting, has to be categorised at least as concerning. Combined with the fact, a nuclear weapon, that could have also threatened multiple other neighbouring countries, was used, makes it necessary to investigate further, whether the usage of such a weapon can be considered in any way justified or proportionate. This shall be determined by the International Court.

Amend Section B - Subsection 3:
3. 4. (…) the south pacific the South Pacific.

Remove Section B - Subsection 4:
4. The World Arrest Warrant (WAW), especially now that IACO has been reformed, pursues the goal to arrest those responsible for the situation during and following the uprising. Being able to arrest these individuals would be a large step towards stabilisation of the region.

Add after Section C - Subsection 3

4. The World Forum is calling the International Court to start investigations on a possible crime against humanity due to the use of nuclear weapons against civilians in the city of Monarque, Akarina, near the border to Ravensland. If the Court rules, a crime against humanity has occured, it urges the Court to do anything in its power to bring justice to the people and countries directly and indirectly affected by this nuclear attack.
