    Relevant part(s) of the Constitution / legislation:Section XVII. Freedom of Conscience

    I. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

    II. This right includes freedom to change their religion or belief; and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance provided they do not violate the rights of others as mandated by this Declaration.

  • Petitioner(s): The Government of the Federation of Istkalen

    Petitionee(s): the state known as the United Duchies

    Reason for petition: Violations of right of association, in recent mass arrests.

    Relevant part(s) of the Constitution / legislation: Section XIX of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    Evidence:

    A) http://nseuropeanunion.com/topic/768/rtd-24/16
    i. In which the Government of the United Duchies declares the Union of Syndicates a terrorist association. Let it be known, several parts of the state apparatus had been seized by terrorists at the time; however, this has ended. The current government has no affiliation or desire to be affiliated with terrorists or terrorism.
    B) http://nseuropeanunion.com/topic/768/rtd-24/18
    ii. In which the Government of the United Duchies, following the expulsion of terrorists from their shaky control of parts of the state apparatus in Kiel, confirms mass arrests of leftist politicians, at least partially because of "connections to foreign hostile regimes supporting terrorism," which we may infer includes the Union of Syndicates and political parties registered therin, which we have already demonstrated to be without affiliation or desire to be affiliated with terrorists or terrorism. Because of the vagueness of this statement, as well as of the initial declaration of the Union of Syndicates as a terrorist actor, this could very well be on charges perhaps ridiculous enough as to allow for the arrest of individuals simply for having an entirely personal relationship with a civil servant - a clerk, for example.
    C) http://nseuropeanunion.com/topic/768/rtd-24/19
    iii. In which the Government of the United Duchies continues mass arrests for reasons already stated based upon association.

    Remedy: Release of all those arrested for associating with, at the very least, the Government of the Union of Syndicates; if "The Left" is found, by this action, to be without ties to terrorism, then it must be re-included as a party able to participate in elections. One hundred hours of community service each for the High Duke and Prime Minister of the United Duchies.



  • Petitioner(s): Gertrude Echteran Children's Choir

    Petitionee(s): the Empire of Inimicus

    Reason for petition: Violations of right to freedom of expression, of habeas corpus, of freedom from torture.

    Relevant sections of constitution: Sections V, IX, XVII of the UDoHR

    Confirmed Evidence:

    1. http://104.131.175.113:1280/topic/1674/nuntius-inimici/157
    • Presence of lèse-majesté laws in the Empire of Inimicus. Similar comments have been made towards other individuals without being considered slander or a call to violence; it thus can be argued that said laws are an infringement upon the right to freedom of expression. While this specific allegation may not be a triable offense, there is no evidence to suggest that said laws have been repealed, meaning that the Empire may be continuing to violate the principle of freedom of speech. This is the sole piece of confirmed evidence that the Gertrude Echteran Children's Choir can present; however, there exists much more which establish repressive behavior as a constant in the Empire of Inimicus, as well as testimony that points to possible human rights abuses.

    Testimony:

    1. http://104.131.175.113:1280/topic/1674/nuntius-inimici/241
    • Several violations of human rights are alleged by the reporter Sophie Brierley, who claims to have been detained arbitrarily in violation of the constitutional right to habeas corpus, and also to have been tortured. Additional claims of the detention of other political figures and of the presence of "political refugees," which implies suppression of the right to freedom of expression in the Empire of Inimicus, are made. It must be noted that Sophie Brierley has not been heard from since a time soon after the publication of this article.

    Evidence indirectly hinting towards general and consistent repressive behavior in the Empire of Inimicus:

    1. http://104.131.175.113:1280/topic/1674/nuntius-inimici/208
    • The Gertrude Echteran Children's Choir mourns the death of these cardinals, even several years on, for no life should be taken away so early. It is not their deaths that we wish to comment on, as well. Rather, it is the mildly suspicious circumstances under which they were living. Firstly, it is stated that they were the victims of repeated threats by some of the supporters of the Emperor of Inimicus. If such supporters do, in fact, threaten those who disagree with the Emperor in such ways, to an extent that they must be hidden away in such away, there evidently exists a repressive environment regarding freedom of expression in the Empire of Inimicus, potentially encouraged by the Emperor. At the same time, the wording in this article suggests that the given Cardinals were in fact being detained and possibly prevented from speaking, which is somewhat worrying, although this is not a line we wish to pursue.
    1. http://104.131.175.113:1280/topic/1674/nuntius-inimici/239
    • Possible lack of accountability regarding corruption; it appears as though the Emperor is the only individual who may initiate any sort of audit of himself, which is worrying. While this is not a violation of any right per se, it helps to establish a picture of the general state of affairs in the Empire of Inimicus.
    1. http://104.131.175.113:1280/topic/1674/nuntius-inimici/203
    • Contempt for certain democratic principles - of the independent legislature - demonstrated to an extent. Potential propaganda - manipulation of the media and thus the public towards less democratic conclusions is possible. We would like to state that the power of the media is strong, especially in the influencing of people's opinions.
    1. http://nseuropeanunion.com/topic/473/nuntius-inimici-inimician-broadcasting-corporation/9
    • Suspicious behavior towards protestors. While this cannot be confirmed, given evidence already presented, what is conveyed here may not be the full truth.

    Remedy: Arrest of those involved in this repression, especially Emperor Artabanos, for crimes against humanity. While this is drastic action, our analysis of the situation appears to show that the only way these abuses may be halted is through the removal of those involved, who have begun, as shown by evidence, to adopt a cult of personality.


  • ECoJ

    Petitioner(s): Yuridiana Yahontov, Interim Deputy Councilor for the Kingdom of Reitzmag
    Petitionee(s): The Federation of Istkalen
    Reason for petition: Acts of aggression and terrorism against all member-states of the European Union
    Relevant part(s) of the Constitution / legislation: Section 1-3 Paragraph 1 of the Anti Terrorism Act of 2006
    Evidence: Declaration of War of the Government of the Federation of Istkalen
    Remedy: Suspension of membership to the European Union and Formal Condemnation of the Federation of Istkalen's aggressive actions


  • EU

    Petitioner: Gertrude Echteran

    Petitionee: Premier Commissioner Walter Cocx

    Reason for Petition: The Premier Commissioner, under the European Commission Sanctioning Powers Act 2020, submitted a sanction motion against Istkalen without the recorded approval of any other Commissioner, thus violating said act, which requires a unanimous Commission in order to submit a Sanction Motion to the Council. This occurred twice before, with the submission of two sanction motions against the UNSR, neither of which gained the explicit approval of any other Commissioner, save for the first, in which Commissioner Birdane stated that she would support a motion against the UNSR that would allow for the survival of the people of the UNSR, while never giving her agreement to any of the drafts proposed by Commissioner Cocx.

    Evidence: Commission debate regarding Sanction Motions; European Commission Sanctioning Powers Act.

    Remedy: The immediate withdrawal of any present Sanction Motion acts made without the approval of the whole of the Commission


  • EU

    Gertrude Echteran withdraws her motion against the Premier Commissioner.
