The Imperial Federal Kingdom of Grand, Belluterra, and Malo vs. the Acadian Supreme Court

The Imperial Federal Kingdom of Grand, Belluterra, and Malo wishes to bring the Acadian Supreme Court to trial for a violation of the Union's Charter of Fundamental Rights: specifically, Part One, Section Two, Clause Six, which states:

Charter of Fundamental Rights wrote:The Following Are Prohibited To Protect Human Rights:
  1. Inhumane, painful, or degrading punishment.
  2. Servitude, slavery, or compulsory labor.
  3. Human trafficking of any kind.
  4. Any form of the death penalty, excluding lethal injection and nitrogen asphyxiation. In the protection of sovereignty, only domestic courts may lay down this punishment.
  5. Collective expulsion of a race from a region, division, city, country, or association.
  6. Extradition to a state that is dangerous to the one affected.
  7. Child labor.

They have done so by sending Jacques Varcame, former Prime Minister of the Republic of Fraesia - who the Acadian military had apprehended on the twenty-seventh of last month and had brought to Acadia - back to his home country of Fraesia on the twenty-third of August, where he was subsequently hanged.

The Consul of the Union High Court, who would normally oversee these proceedings, is from our country, thus barring his participation. Therefore, we call upon Kenneth Johnson, the Honorable Representative from Paradise and the current Vice-Consul, to preside over these affairs.

As the Vice-Consul, I recognize these charges as legitimate, and call upon the nation of Acadia, as defendant to explain the events that occurred from their point of view.

Okaiken remains neutral as the nation does not deal with other nations' problems.

Nilia and Albian also stay neutral in this situation since it isn't threatening to our own safety, but let it be known that the people of Nilia and Albian generally Disagree with the use of hanging as a problem.

I'm not too familiar with the court stuff, but I'll do my best.

The Acadian Supreme Court sentenced Jacques Varcame to be sent back to his former country of Fraesia. The ruling did not specify what would happen when he arrived. The Acadian Supreme Court did not authorize or support the execution of Jacques Varcame, and does not recognize Fraesia as a state that is dangerous to the one affected, as the combat has stopped.

The defense asks for proof that Fraesia is a "dangerous state" from the IFK ambassador.


I hope that sounded close enough to legal talk.

The defense has relayed its information-let the prosecution now present proof that Fraesia is indeed a 'dangerous state to the one affected'.

(Does this mean that the trial has begun now, Kenny?)

The Imperial Federal Kingdom points out the fact that Fraesia is a nation known to have capital punishment, and that the late Mr. Varcame was accused of war crimes by a large portion of the population of his home nation - meaning that if he was extradited back to his home country, being immediately arrested was extremely likely, and that, with his own government overthrown by the Acadians and replaced with a new one, receiving the death penalty for these alleged crimes was a foreseeable outcome.

The Acadian Supreme Court would like to point out that Fraesia was known to use capital punishment while Fraesia was under Varcame's control. Therefore, the IFK representative's statement is irrelevant.

The Acadian Supreme Court would also like to inform the court of the ruling of Varcame's trial. It was not to remove Varcame from Acadia and simply send him to Fraesia. Varcame was delivered to the custody of Fraesia's High Court; where his sentence was to be decided by the Fraesians, themselves—with the Acadian Supreme Court having no power to decide Varcame's fate.

Even if Fraesia was known to use capital punishment under Varcame's rule, that makes little difference, since they have obviously continued to use it after his deposition.

And since we pointed out earlier that hatred for Varcame ran high in Fraesia due to the war, it is of the IFK Representative's opinion that any such "delivering to the custody of [the Fraesian authorities]" constitutes extraditing him to a nation dangerous for him. We know that the Acadians had no power to decide Varcame's fate
after he was handed over; however, up to that point - as we understand it - he was in the custody of the Acadian Supreme Court, and as such was subject to their laws. As he was an accused war criminal suspected of having ordered war crimes perpetrated on Union soil, we believe the ideal way to deal with him would have consisted of sending him to this Union High Court, to be dealt with here.

Looks like this could keep on going back-and-forth until the Vice-Consul calls for a decision from the jury (all full members except for me, Kenny, and you). =P

The Acadian Supreme Court would like to stress that Fraesia was not a dangerous state to the one affected, until he was tried in Fraesian High Court, where Acadia could not intervene. Therefore, when Varcame was extracted to Fraesia, it was not dangerous to Varcame, the one effected.

The vice-consul thinks enough facts have been given and would like the jury to convene and come to a decision. Keep in mind of each side's statements and choose an outcome that is fair and just.

Interesting.. The Republic of New Terrance scolds Acadia for allowing Jacques Varcame to be tried in his home country of Fraesia, whom was subsequently hanged. Acadia should have known of the punishments subjected to such persons. However, being an Ambassadorial Member we have no say in the Jury's decision and we would have abstained most likely.

So since Daniel is the consul (and his nation is the Main Plaintiff) can I be the judge? Devil

BTW, Jury, assemble! Devil

Just suggesting xDxDxD

The Jury so far is just me and Carl. lol

Acadia, for the most part is guilty of the charge. Fraesia's an unstable populous because of the war and since Acadia (Jack) pointed out Hanging was used before, it's apparent that his fate would have been death, regardless.
