The European Court of Justice has voted to deny your request; once a case has begun a hearing the current court must hear it in entirity. It goes against the constitutional rights of the defend to order another trial heard by another court. This violates their right to not be subjected to double jeopardy, which is why this 'usual procedure' has been precedent in the European Court of Justice for years now.
The Chief Justice has asked me to deliver the court's opinion, I would like to begin with saying I thank all participants for their time, and hope that they follow the court's opinion and take it without prejudice. With that being said the Court finds the following;
ON ALL COUNTS: NOT GUILTY (Dance, Kelander) DISSENTING (Valera)
Opinion of the Court: The Court acknowledges how the Constitution and Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDoHR) are used by various nations, Gallambria included; however, the Court is hesitant on its universal applications by the means that the Gallambrian party seeks. The UDoHR and the Constitution should not be used to further each nation's political beliefs; instead the statements included in each should be taken literally but yet vaguely, and without implications by various parties.
The overarching belief that the court takes with this opinion however, is how the Preamble to the UDoHR is presented:
"I. This Declaration defines the rights to which every citizen of the European Union is entitled.
II. These rights are inalienable, and every citizen may use this
Declaration in a court of law against any infringement on these rights
that they may face.
It is the Court's belief that the UDoHR may only apply to European Union Citizens; without a clear state of government and jurisdiction in the former nation known as Dromund Kaas, from which these (for the Court's purposes, due to a lack of international agreement on the terms migrant, and refugee) persons heed from, there can not be any European Citizen granted to these persons. Therefore, these persons exist outside of EU law, and jurisdiction. There is no independent state within the region, that is a European Union member. The Court acknowledges various powers with interest, the Duxburian Union, Angleter, as well as the United Kingdom, yet we can not confer these persons unto these states. Therefore, these persons as not European Citizens under the court discourse of the constitution.The Preamble of the UDoHR reflects this by opening the document by stating the Declaration defines the rights to 'every citizen of the European Union'. By virtue of lack of definition and place-hood, these persons who were on the boat which the Pravoslaviyan government sank are not European Citizens, and by extension not covered by the UDoHR.
Honestly, I do believe that they are guilty, they bombed a boat full of people, that even if they were going to make a bad action toward this country or not, their rights as humans should have been respected in first place. Whether they are EU Citizens or not does not matter, as all EU states are still obligated to uphold the Declarations values, as further stated in the Preamble.
The Court would like again thank everyone for their time, and thanks everyone for the patience provided.
