A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Qvait
Recognizing the utility of GA#535 "Death Penalty Ban" in abolishing its application under most circumstances,
Concerned that the remaining applications of the death penalty are injurious and inhumane to people who are sentenced to death for crimes they may not have even committed,
Convinced that the death penalty is a draconian judicial punishment often used in the name of revenge and wrongfully rationalized as justice,
Appalled that exceptions can be made in the application of the death penalty,
Confident that alternative sentencing exists to produce fair and effective justice for victims of heinous crimes,
Determined to discontinue all remaining uses of the death penalty,
The World Assembly hereby,
1. Abolishes the death penalty for all crimes under the purview of military law;
2. Prohibits states from deporting persons to states that may seek the application of the death penalty against them;
3. In regards to Article 2, an exception shall be provided for receiving states that enter into a lawful, written contract that assures the extraditing state that the persons in question shall not receive the death penalty.
