Given the defeat of the previous bill, I am placing for your consideration the Human Rights Act, a collaboration between Agarntrop and me. This bill retains much of the judiciary clauses from the previous proposal, but most of everything else has changed. We are not submitting yet, so as to give people time to give criticsm.

Human Rights Act
Author: Eloise Eliasson (NPP) and James Penta (Green) (Editor)
Sponsors: Dorgival R. Seč (SDP), Carl von Leslie (NPP - Prime Minister), Alexander Norberg (NPP)



To give all persons within Saint Hilda the rights to life, bodily autonomy, privacy of belongings, free expression, sufferage, equality before the law, fair trial, and other rights.

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED, as follows:



  1. Right to life is bestowed upon all persons upon birth and shall not be violated in any circumstance except to protect the lives of others in immediate, life-threatening peril, or in wartime where the killing of enemy combatants is just under international law.

  2. All persons have the right to bodily autonomy and privacy; no person, personal effect, or person’s property—physical or digital—shall be forcibly detained, seized, searched, or otherwise violated except by an officer of the law for the purposes of protecting the health and safety of others, interrupting criminal activity committed in flagrante delicto, or pursuant to a warrant issued by a lawful judge of Saint Hilda on the basis of probable cause.

  3. Torture, involuntary physical maiming, or psychological abuse are prohibited without exception.

  4. All persons enjoy the right to free speech, peaceful assembly, free press, and petition for grievances inasmuch as such expressions or manifestations do not incite violence, do not jeopardize the health and security of others, and do not defame, slander, or libel a person, persons, or organization.

  5. All persons enjoy the right to freely practice nonviolent, harmless religious or cultural practice, as well as the right to abstain thereof.

  6. All citizens having seventeen years of age or greater shall have the right to freely vote or abstain from voting in a national election, or in the local elections of a locality in which they reside, and all votes in these elections cast shall be secret. The Government of Saint Hilda shall not institute a poll tax or attempt in any way to obstruct any citizen from voting.

  7. All persons—regardless of sex, religion, culture, socioeconomic status, or political identity—are equal before the Government of Saint Hilda.

  8. No person shall be detained for criminal offense except under substantial charge filed by a prosecutor of Saint Hilda with the consent of the Ministry of Justice. Upon charge, all persons shall have the right to petition for a writ of habeas corpus to be seen by a court within forty-eight hours of their detainment. The right to habeas corpus may be justifiably suspended during grave internal or external unrest as declared by Parliament and ratified by the Constitutional Court, and such suspensions shall only last until the period of unrest has lapsed.

  9. All persons are protected against self-incrimination or the incrimination of their spouse or children, and all persons are to be assumed innocent before the law until proven guilty.

  10. All persons have a right to a fair, unbiased, and expeditious trial in a court of law before a jury of their peers, and shall have unconstrained access to a trained barrister or barristers for their civil or criminal defense, and all communication between a person and their barrister shall be privileged beyond any subpoena; if a person cannot afford a private barrister, the state shall furnish one for them.

  11. All persons shall have the right to access and examine any evidence or testimony against them, as well as the right to bring forth and compel any evidence or testimony in their defense. All evidence or testimony offered in support of the innocence of the defense must be considered, regardless of the nature of such evidence or testimony.

  12. All persons found guilty shall have the right to petition for a writ of certiorari before a higher court, and no person shall be subjected to double jeopardy for the same offense.

  13. No law shall be administered ex post facto, except those applying retroactively in mitius or any statute that enforces international peremptory norms.

  14. The Human Rights Act shall apply to the government of Saint Hilda and all constituent and local governing bodies therein, as well as within all chancelleries, consulates, and other extensions of the Government of Saint Hilda abroad, as well as on all vessels of land or sea, public or private, that fly the Saint Hilda flag.

twenty-one."

Marriage Act
Authors: Sven Sköldsvik (R)
Sponsors:



A bill to make provisions for the marriage of same-sex and opposite-sex couples in St Hilda and the rights of religions to perform marriage.

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED, as follows:



§1 - Definition of Marriage
  1. Marriage shall hereafter be defined as a voluntary union between two people over the legal age of marriage.
  2. The legality of marriage shall be determined without regard to the gender of its two participants.
  3. The legal age of marriage shall be set at sixteen with the consent of the legal guardians of both involved, or eighteen without the requirement for consent.
  4. Marriages shall not be valid between any two people that share a parent.
  5. Marriages shall not be legal between any two people that share a grandparent.
  6. Marriages shall not be legal between a parent and their child.
  7. Marriages shall not be legal between a grandparent and their grandchild.
  8. Marriages shall not be legal between an aunt or uncle and their niece or nephew.
  9. Marriages shall not be legal if entered between more than two persons.
  10. A marriage may not be entered by a person if they are already married to another person.

§2 - Recognition of Marriage
  • Marriages shall be recognised only if performed in a registry office, recognised religious congregation or a place that has been given the right to perform marriage.
  • Religious venues affiliated with the Church of Sweden shall be given the right to perform marriage.
  • Any other religious venues shall be given the right to perform marriage if it is given said right by the government.
  • A place that is not a registry office or religious venue may be given the right to solemise marriage through local government order.
  • A registry office may not discriminate in who it marries so long as the marriage is legally valid.
  • Religious venues have the right to discriminate in who they marry under religious freedom.
  • Other places may not discriminate in who they marry so long as the marriage is legally valid.
  • Marriages may only be legally valid if both parties consent and the marriage is witnessed by two other individuals.

§3 - Implementation
  • This act shall be implemented immediately upon its passage.
  • This act may be cited as the Marriage Act 2019.

Would sponsor, but I would amend Section 1C to read "The legal age of marriage shall be set at
twenty-one."

Human Rights Act
Author: Eloise Eliasson (NPP) and James Penta (Green) (Editor)


To give all persons within Saint Hilda the rights to life, bodily autonomy, privacy of belongings, free expression, sufferage, equality before the law, fair trial, and other rights.

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED, as follows:



  1. Right to life is bestowed upon all persons upon birth and shall not be violated in any circumstance except to protect the lives of others in immediate, life-threatening peril or in wartime where the killing of enemy combatants is just under international law.

  2. All persons have the right to bodily autonomy and privacy. No person, personal affect, or person’s property—physical or digital—shall be forcibly detained, seized, searched, or otherwise violated except by an officer of the law for the purposes of protecting the health and safety of others, interrupting criminal activity committed in flagrante delicto, or pursuant to a warrant issued by a lawful judge of Saint Hilda on the basis of probable cause.

  3. Torture, involuntary physical maiming, or psychological abuse are prohibited without exception.

  4. All persons enjoy the right to free speech, free assembly, free press, and petition for grievances inasmuch as such expressions or manifestations are nonviolent, do not incite violence, do not jeopardize the health and security of others, or do not defame, slander, or libel a person, persons, or organization.

  5. All persons enjoy the right to freely practice nonviolent, harmless religious or cultural practice, as well as the right to abstain thereof.

  6. All citizens having seventeen years of age or greater shall have the right to freely vote or abstain from voting. The Government of Saint Hilda shall not institute a poll tax or attempt in any way to obstruct any citizen from voting.

  7. All persons, regardless of sex, religion, culture, socioeconomic status, or political identity are equal before the Government of Saint Hilda.

  8. No person shall be detained for criminal offense except under substantial charge filed by a prosecutor of Saint Hilda with the consent of the Ministry of Justice. Upon charge, all persons shall have the right to petition for a writ of habeas corpus to be seen by a court within forty-eight hours of their detainment. The right to habeas corpus may be suspended during justifiable grave internal or external unrest as declared by Parliament and ratified by the Constitutional Court, and such suspensions shall only last until the period of unrest has passed.

  9. All persons are protected against self-incrimination or the incrimination of their spouse or children.

  10. All persons have a right to a fair, unbiased, and expeditious trial in a court of law before a jury of their peers, and shall have unconstrained access to a trained barrister or barristers for their civil or criminal defense, and all communication between a person and their barrister shall be privileged beyond any subpoena; if a person cannot afford a private barrister, the state shall furnish one for them.
    All persons shall have the right to access and examine any evidence or testimony against them, as well as the right to bring forth and compel any evidence or testimony in their defense. All evidence or testimony offered in support of the innocence of the defense must be considered, regardless of the nature of such evidence or testimony.

  11. All persons found guilty shall have the right to petition for a writ of certiorari before a higher court, and no person shall be subjected to double jeopardy for the same offense.

  12. The Human Rights Act shall apply to the government of Saint Hilda and all constituent and local governing bodies therein, as well as within all chancelleries, consulates, and other extensions of the Government of Saint Hilda abroad, as well as on all vessels of land or sea, public or private, that fly the Saint Hilda flag.

16 is a far too low age to permiss marriage. 18 would be acceptable, 21 ideally.

I just based the numbers I’m used to from English law.

Sweden sets it at 18 but with a footnote appearing to imply the age was lower before 2014.

21 is a ridiculous minimum age for marriage. 18 is a good number, and plenty of countries (including Canada and the UK) have it at 16.

I assume this would prohibit the death penalty? If so, I would likely not be in favor since my MP is pretty tough on crime.

I mean there's a difference between being tough on crime and wanting to bring back a practise not used since the 19th century. In answer to your question, yes.
