Ban on Statutory Limitations for Heinous Crimes

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.

Category: Human Rights

Strength: Mild

Proposed by: auralia__400784t2.pngAuralia

Recognizing the moral depravity of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against peace,

Recalling this Assembly's prior commitments to the prosecution of perpetrators of such crimes,

Emphasizing that the effective protection of human rights by this Assembly necessitates that there be no statutory limitations on prosecution of perpetrators of such crimes,

The General Assembly,


  1. Defines a statutory limitation as any limitation on the period of time following the commission of a crime that the alleged perpetrator or perpetrators may be prosecuted for that crime, with the understanding that this includes, but is not limited to, limitations imposed by administrative regulation, judicial order, or legislative statute;

  2. Prohibits member states, whether acting individually or collectively through World Assembly resolution, from applying a statutory limitation to any crime explicitly or implicitly recognized under World Assembly law as:

    1. a war crime,

    2. a crime against humanity, or

    3. a crime against peace.

Another proposal that quickly collected approvals. Not much to say about it. The proposal clearly limits itself to crimes defined by the WA as falling under 2 a-c. The three cases seem sensible enough. I honestly can't think of a real downside. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Therefore I'd recommend to vote for the proposal.
