I agree in large part with Simone. I also noticed improper – heh – placement of a comma in section 2(d). Please delimit sections (a section "2a" is a section with the name "2a", not a section 2 with subsection a; see eg Interpretation Act 1978 s 23a as amended), decapitalise "section", and stop overusing italics.

Per Discord I have changed "improper" to "wrongful" and removed what I imagine is the improperly placed comma. It appears that using "Subsection" etc instead of "Section" would break the character limit, and I do prefer the enacting clause as well as Latin terms to be italicised for stylistic purposes (Wikipedia italicises both "bona fide" and "respondeat superior", Cornell Law School also italicises the latter and Merriam-Webster italicises the former).

Any last comments before I submit?

General Assembly Vote Recommendation

Part of the Information for WA Voters programme


Resolution at Vote: Whistleblowing Convention
Vote Recommendation: For


Resolution Analysis
Overview
This proposal seeks to promote the welfare and well-being of the general public and society by facilitating the disclosure and prompt inquiry into significant misconduct within a government or non-government "entity", while safeguarding those who come forward in accordance with the provisions of the proposal.

Recommendation
We could not quite understand exactly why "three" was chosen as the magic number under section 6, i.e. why not four? Why not five? Ensuring the right threshold exists for addressing complaints is also another concern - litigious and costly vexatious complaints almost always surround these types of legislative regimes.

With that being said, ensuring that the World Assembly and its committees and working groups have procedures in place to guarantee those aware of issues surrounding corruption and other questionable activities have opportunities to make disclosures - and be protected in that way, with no repercussions - is an important safeguard mechanism of any functioning democracy.

For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For the General Assembly proposal at vote, "Whistleblowing Convention".

Join our discussion!

(OOC: This is now at vote. I note with displeasure that the definition of “consent” includes “consent”. However, I have voted in favour, and I will make an IC post later possibly explaining why I did so.)

Support in theory, but it minces some things too finely for us, which is less supportable when it also has a recursive definition. We abstain and the passage of this law will have no effect in our borders anyway.

Having someone's reputation dredged through the mud before being found not guilty is still career damaging. Ask Johnny Depp/Amber Heard or Kevin Spacey.

Found a way to both sides that trial, huh?
