General Assembly Resolution # 11
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #3 “The Right to a Fair Trial” (Category: Civil Rights; Strength: Strong) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Understanding that the intended purpose of "The Right to a Fair Trial" is to provide fair trials,
Noting that the resolution fails to understand that the WA is composed of wildly divergent cultures in its description of a "Fair Trial",
Also noting that the resolution fails to take into account that certain nations have long-established non-jury judicial systems of unquestioned integrity,
Regretting that the resolution allows defendants to choose any person to represent them, despite the legal ramifications of possible conflicts of interest,
Further regretting that the resolution allows defendants any number of appeals they wish,
Noting that this flawed legislation bars a more effective resolution from passage,
Seeking the opportunity to introduce a more effective version of this resolution to the World Assembly,
The World Assembly hereby repeals "The Right to a Fair Trial".
