  • **Anti-Terrorism Act **
    A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets

    **F. **Afford one another the greatest measure of assistance in connection with criminal investigations or proceedings related to the financing or support of international terrorism, including assistance in obtaining evidence necessary for said proceedings.

    5. **URGES **all member states to cooperate in preventing and suppressing international terrorism and in taking action against such act, though administrative and judicial means, and the exchange of intelligence, especially regarding actions or movements of international terrorists; forged or falsified travel documents; the use of communications technologies by international terrorist groups; and traffic in arms, explosives, or sensitive materials - particularly weapons of mass destruction - by international terrorists.

    This legislation is put forward to the Security Council on behalf of the members of the European Socialist Party [ESP] and all member states of the European Union.

    Please hold off from voting until, hopefully, the Security Council takes a look and puts it forward to the Parliament for final voting. I don't doubt that with the support of the rest of the MEPs in the Parliament this legislation will pass. Thank you.

    Annika Bekker MEP,

  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs
    I fully approve the above motion. I think it is a worthwhile endevour and thus is deservant of the Askiran Vote. I vote FOR on this.

    I believe something similar to this has become a resolution already.

  • In that case since it is a good motion, Anti-Terrorism, and it coincides with the UN Nuclear Stockpile Maintanence Proposal would it be possible to instead put it forward as legislation to the Security Council for eventual implementation within the European Union?

  • Have moved this to the Security Council area.

    Please do not vote on this until the SC has validated and accepted the proposal (which I am sure we will - formality).

    Thank you,
    Comrade Phillip

  • Vote FOR it to go before Parliament, but what's this similarity you speak of Belarum? I'm sure I've seen this somewhere before as well blink.gif

  • This is being forgotten guys! I think we need to start working on these resolutions for putting them forward to Parliament - people are gunna start asking where their proposals keep going!

  • Apparently there are no propositions from the SC to modify or discard this resolution, so it should be now sent to the Parliament.

  • Indeed it seems so, but I think we better get the OK from everybody before we send it to Parliament.

    The Federal Republic of Belarum has read and analyzed the Anti-Terrorism Act proposed by the ESP, and votes FOR the resolution as is.

    [IC RP]On a more personal note, the nation of Belarum has struggled from time to time with terrorism within it's own borders. For more information on the subject, see Belarum's NS Wiki article.[IC RP]

  • Still waiting for Soviet Union's input on this matter! We do need it before we put it before Parliament don't we?

  • Admin

    ABSTAIN. The Soviet Union neither supports nor condemns this piece of legislation, hence we acknowledge it is time for the Parliament to begin voting for it. I would like this specific topic to be locked and a copy of it to be posted in the parliament, if possible.
