The 2nd Great Tribunal of Cavirfi [CAVIRFI ONLY]

Postby Cavirfi » Tue Jun 07, 2022 11:39 pm

After the dissolution of the 1st Great Tribunal of Cavirfi in April 2022 in accordance to de facto conventions on the term length of the Great Tribunal, Cavirfi held exams in May to appoint the 2nd Great Tribunal. Results were published on May 21 and the opening of the 2nd Great Tribunal was originally scheduled for May 28 however due to multiple delays, that never happened.

The 2nd Great Tribunal was officially opened on June 8, 2022 and will be dissolved around April 2023 to prevent the cycle from going too far off from the original schedule.

The Great Tribunal of Cavirfi is the highest court in the Free Land of Cavirfi and is responsible for having the final say on the constitutionality of a resolution or executive order and is also responsible for holding trials for people accused of war crimes, genocide, or any other crimes against humanity.

In the Iuris Concilli method, the second method of legislation along with the Iuris Rex (rule by decree), the Great Tribunal is generally considered the first check on the Chancellor's powers, with the Technocratic Council (legislature) being the second check, and the Wolf Pack (cabinet) being the third and final check before a resolution made by the Chancellor is ascended into law.

Speaking of the Iuris Rex method, if the Great Farmer signs an Executive Order that may seem unconstitutional, the Great Tribunal is in charge of investigating and deliberating on the order to keep the Great Farmer in check. Due to the independent nature of Great Tribunal appointments, this check and balance on the head of state's power (which is de facto dictatorial) is strong and effective.

Other than that, this is the 2nd Great Tribunal of Cavirfi

(OOC: We will be following the old color codes from the 1st Great Tribunal)

After the appointments to the 2nd Great Tribunal were made, multiple delays took place in order to decide on a proper date to open the Great Tribunal. After days of decision-making, June 8 was decided to be the day that the Great Tribunal was to be opened. With that, the ceremony shall now begin.

A few people enter the chamber of the Great Tribunal to act as the spectators to the ceremony, while some media crew from Cavirfi One arrive to record live the event.

10 soldiers of the Cavirfite Sovereign Guard are sent to THE Barn to act as the ceremonial guard for the day, they arrive at the chamber of the Great Tribunal and surround the seats for the ceremony.

Soon enough, Great Farmer Margeaux Tortune arrives in the chamber and one of the guards proclaim.

May everyone, come and welcome, the Right Honorable, Her Excellency, and Her Sire of the White Knight Order, Margeaux Tortune.


The spectators clap.

Slowly, Tortune walks down the hall, greeting and shaking the hands of every soldier present in the ceremony.

Unlike with the First's ceremony however, she decides to simply say her greetings silently. She then heads to the main seat facing the seats of the justices and sits down.

Abbigail Roach, the Chief Justice of Cavirfi during the 1st Great Tribunal arrives.

Finally, may everyone welcome the Honorable Justice of Dsormere, Alanna Simmonds


Simmonds enters the Chamber and heads to the part of the hall between the seats of the justices and the seat of the witness

The 9th Ceremonial Guard then proclaims

Everyone, we request all of you, to either salute or put your right hand to your heart as we sing the national anthem, For the Free Land.


Everyone does as requested and the tune of the national anthem starts playing

Paer de Freda Nadione. (For the Free Land)
De Freda Nadione Caverfaen. (The Free Cavirfite Land)
Havaek spadaen da gintoen. (Wield the golden sword)
Paer de moralaen. (For morality)
Paer de Freda. (For Freedom)
Paer de taosmae (For the people)
De Statismae (For the leadership).
Tapoesionen nichtmaelakdionen (End abuse).
Havaek buken da puraen (Wield the untorn book)
Paer mael unden pasae (For love and peace).

A struggle, a mighty struggle.
Lasting 500 years.
To end tyranny
To end cruelty
In the home and state.
We are united, in our fight against hate.
Hateful division sows;
against the seeds of love.
So we reap what we sow.
We need to plant a new crop
A new crop that's peaceful and meek
Meek but still tough
Tough against evil
Evil that spreads it's roots.

Its roots is what harms us;
and what harms us, harms others.
So how do we spread peace and the benign?
When we cannot fight this root.
So fight this root, for the meek
For the meek, that is our free land
The free land for the heroic

THE FREE CAVIRFITE LAND.


The tune stops and everyone puts their hands down.

The 9th Ceremonial Guard says

You may now resume your seats, the Great Farmer shall now speak.


Tortune stands up heads to the witness podium, adjusts the microphone, and starts speaking.

To the Honorable Chief Justice, the Honorable Chief Justice appointed, and the Justices of the Municipality of this Land,

It is of honor to say that we Cavirfi have made it a year into our sovereignty, considering the political instabilities of 2 of the 3 sections of the triworld in the modern era. It is really impressive how our nation has been able to function and develop within this quick timespan so with that we have proven that the Cavirfite nationstate can survive and it can survive with serving its good people and not follow the conventional route of manipulative and malicious politicking that the modern world order has based itself on since the turn of the latter half of the 20th Century.

With the 22nd year of the 21st Century now on our midst, I now assign to you a new responsibility, to preserve what progress we have made. To protect the rights of the people, to uphold human rights, the rule of law, and the goodness of our nation. Do what it is you can to prevent any forces whether it's me, the Council, yourselves, the people, the Chancellor, the military, or any being that is capable of leading this country from backsliding our liberties and bringing us back to our dark age before 2021.

I said it here last year and I will say it again. We have a Constitution, your main job is to uphold it to prevent abuse, to prevent illegality, and to keep alive the flame that warms our people.

If you swear to the rights and responsibilities assigned to you on this day and keep your promises dearly, then your appointments were not in vain.

With that said, thank you.


Everyone claps before the Ceremonial Guards call them to order, while the 9th Ceremonial Guard commands

MAY THE GREAT FARMER READ THE RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITES OF THIS NEW LAND!


Tortune grabs for one of the pockets on her coat and from that pocket, she grabs a piece of paper containing a copy of the Cavirfite Constitution. She opens the paper and reads it.

The Rights and Responsibilities for the New Land of Love.



Preamble

We, the Wolf Pack and the new people solemnly swear to create a new land that will expand the realm of value, in a world where that kind of opportunity is continuously being rotten under the banner of "progress".

Details

The article in which the creation of this land is ratified is divided into 7 amendments and 25 articles, the amendments of this article are meant to act as sub articles pertaining to the certain rights and responsibilities of the government, the people, and the military, as well as the values that Cavirfi as a nation is built upon.


AMENDMENT I - THE CAVIRFITE VALUES

The foundation of this new nation is based on the 4 key rotting principles: Chivalry, Loyalty, Love, and Peace.

Article I - Chivalry

Chivalry, in which the medieval military orders were built on has changed over the years, as the saying goes: Chivalry Is Dead!

But with the creation of this new land, chivalry shall be revived, it's definition remodeled, and it's usage institutionalized.

Now, with the creation of Cavirfi. 17 Key Rules must be followed in order for chivalry to be valued:

1. A man must respect women, as he would respect other men.
2. A man must recognize that women, like him, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
3. A man must respect the decisions of women.
4. A man must respect other men, as he would respect women.
5. A man must recognize that other men, like him, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
6. A man must respect the decisions of other men.
7. A woman must respect men, as she would respect other women.
8. A woman must recognize that men, like her, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
9. A woman must respect the decisions of men.
10. A woman must respect other women, as she would respect men.
11. A woman must recognize that other women, like her, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
12. A woman must respect the decisions of other women.
13. A man must protect women
14. A man must protect other men
15. A women must protect men
16. A woman must protect other women.
17. Everyone shall see each other indifferently on the basis of the color of their skin, the gender they prefer most romantically, the language they speak, and lastly the gender they identify with. Everyone must see each other differently on the basis of the content of their character and must act accordingly so.

One must follow the rules of chivalry to call themselves men or women in Cavirfi, otherwise they can call themselves boys and girls instead.

Article II - Loyalty

Loyalty, be it, an essential value, crucial to diplomacy. It is the second value that Cavirfi must stand by.

For one to be worthy of calling themselves loyal they must follow 7 rules

1. One shall not betray their friends, family, and people they hold dear by accusing them of misdemeanors or felonies they never committed.
2. A man in love with a woman shall not be with another.
3. A man in love with another man shall not be with another
4. A woman in love with a man shall not be with another
5. A woman in love with another woman shall not be with another.
6. One shall not help others with the intent of reward, only to harm them (others) when such reward is failed to be presented to them (one).
7. One shall practice Chivalry while they practice Loyalty.

These rules must be followed in order for one to call themselves loyal, otherwise they can call themselves naive.

Article III - Love

Love, it is an underrated value, it moves bridges, it builds societies, it brings peace. Yet with societies that shall not be named abusing such value, no wonder they have descended into chaos.

In order for stability to remain in the new land, 4 rules.

1. One shall love his neighbor, as they would love their family, friends, and other people they hold dear.
2. One shall not hate another person as a human being, but rather one shall hate another person as a wrongdoer.
3. One shall help others in times of need, regardless of the benefits they will receive.
4. One shall practice Chivalry and Loyalty as they would practice Love.

The individual shall follow these 4 rules to call themselves a loving person, otherwise they can call themselves a poser instead.

Article IV - Peace

Peace, the fourth value, it is what builds society, without it, the average life a person would be cut short. The world and the multiverse recognizes the importance of peace.

In order for one to call themselves peaceful they must follow 4 rules

1. One shall not enter into dispute, if they are in a position where that isn't necessary. If one needs dispute to live life, they must either solve it or agree-to-disagree.
2. One in a dispute, shall solve it with words rather than fists.
3. In fact, one shall not use their fists against another, unless the other directly threatens their life. This is the right to self defense.
4. One shall practice Chivalry, Loyalty, and Love while practicing peace.

One must follow all 4 rules, to call themselves peaceful, otherwise they are in a state of neutrality.

Now that the 4 values of Cavirfi have been defined, this constution shall conclude the 1st Amendment, and begin the 2nd Amendment



Amendment II - The Rights of the State


Article V - The Rights of the Wolf Pack

The Wolf Pack shall be recognized and legitimized as the true and sole government of Cavirfi. They have powers that they can use to manage the country, the Wolf Pack shall not be recogonized as FALSE, as for this government has founded this new land, and therefore has the first Rights to use and control it.

Article VI - The Rights of the Great Farmer

The Great Farmer shall be recognized as the sole head of state of Cavirfi. No one can identify as head of state but the Great Farmer. Any claims otherwise are FALSE, for the Great Farmer is also the leader of the Wolf Pack, and therefore has every right to it.

The Great Farmer's position can only be appointed by the Wolf Pack and any other modes are not legitimate.

  • The right to open and close Technocratic Council sessions
  • The right to make proposals for the Technocratic Council

  • The right to veto laws made by the Wolf Pack
  • The right to pass petitions on the people's behalf
  • The right to appoint and depose the Chancellor
  • The right to appoint and depose the municipal governments.

These rights are permanent and can only be changed with a decision of more than 1/2 of the approval of the Wolf Pack.

Article IX - The Rights of the Great Tribunal

The Great Tribunal shall be recognized as the highest judiciary in all of the land. As they shall review each and every law and resolution, to see if it is in accordance to this Constitution. The Great Tribunal shall not represent the Wolf Pack or the people, but the articles in which they have written.

The Great Tribunal shall have 8 members, 1 for each municipality recognized under the charter code. The Great Tribunal shall be appointed by the Wolf Pack and approved by the Minister of Justice.

These rights are only permanent and must be approved for modification by a unanimous decision by the Technocratic Council and more than 1/2 of the Wolf Pack.

Now that all 3 branches of the government's rights have been clarified, we declare the 2nd Amendment Legitimate.

Great Tribunal Case for Technocratic Council Resolution No. 1



After over a month, the Second Great Tribunal will finally have its first session after its opening on June 8. The main concern for today's session will be a proposal by the fourth member of the Technocratic Council for Ostry, Jonska Fretsburg. This proposal concerns the infrastructural policy of the Free Land of Cavirfi. The Great Tribunal will be hearing on this case as part of standard procedure for the Iuris Concilli method.

The Justices of the Great Tribunal assemble in civil fashion, they sit down on their respective benches and wait for Fretsburg to arrive. A few minutes later, Fretsburg arrives with a paper on his hand and walks to the bench facing the Justices and takes a seat there as mandated by protocol.

The Chief Justice opens the case

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

I am Chief Justice of the Free Land of Cavirfi, Mayson Turner; and I will be opening the first session of this Great Tribunal to set up a case to examine a proposal made by the honorable fourth member of the Technocratic Council for Ostry, Jonska Fretsburg. I will now open the session, let it begin.

Before we examine this case, I want Mister Fretsburg to please read and explain to us this proposal that he wishes for this Tribunal to examine for this session being. I command you to read and explain the proposal now.


Turner strikes his gavel and Fretsburg stands up

(OOC: I don't have a color for MPs proposing a case so I will be using Orange)

Thank you, your Honor.

Umm before I do as commanded. May I ask if whether I should read or explain the bill first.


Whatever suits you will do. However I normally recommended you read the bill first.


Alright then.

Before examination, I will hereby read the bill that I am about to propose.


Fretsburg grabs the paper and starts reading from it

We understand that this resolution shall be effective immediately upon approval of the Wolf Pack and the signature of the Great Farmer

Thus, we hereby conclude: "Technocratic Council Resolution No. 1 - Initiate Project Plutonia II"


Fretsburg sets the paper down and adjusts his microphone again to start explaining

So, this resolution was authored by me around late June. This was written prior to the storm so I was not able to put into account the regulations that came after so this may or may not help my case. But nevertheless, this if the Wolf Pack and Great Farmer chooses to approve such a resolution will be the second session of a project that was first commenced around September last year. That original project was initiated as an Executive Order as part of response to mild protests during the half-anniversary celebration and it only included police stations, fire stations, hospitals, schools, and bus infrastructure. Now such a project was expensive for the time, the Central Bank didn't have that much money prior. But now, the Central Bank has a lot of money. I would argue too much money that isn't being spent on the welfare of the nation. For that, I believe considering we still have money left to spare from the storm regulations. I think it would be good if the State decided to give out one more infrastructural investment in service to the nation. Because almost every developed nation on Earth has trains, almost every developed nation on earth has trams, and almost every developed nation on earth can afford to provide a power surplus for their people. We are a developed nation economically, we have an HDI of 88/100 or somewhere around the 0.900 region on the World One scale but our infrastructure is still that of a middle-income economy like South Africa or Brazil or Mexico. Thus, it would be inconvenient for us to have all that money in the Central Bank yet still feel like we can't get anywhere across this country fast or our rent is still proportionately high due to power costs. We still have about 30 quadrillion dollars, so I'm hoping that spending 20 quadrillion won't do much to the Central Bank after all, we still won't go into debt for that and we certainly won't go bankrupt over this. So this is why I considered making this proposal. Calculations were made by the Honorable Minister Albert so please consider that.

Other than that, I have nothing else to explain regarding my proposal. Please consider what I have said, thank you.


Fretsburg sits down and Turner stands up

Alright, so the Honorable Fretsburg has read and explained to us all the details and bits of his proposal. So let us get to the court opinion.

So far, Mister Fretsburg. I think that your proposal was written well enough to consider the values for this nation and I think that your explanation and justification for this proposal are completely in line with what this country should be. So I am going to declare this proposal
CONSTITUTIONAL!

Now, I will call on the Justice of Edgebol to give his opinion.


Turner strikes his gavel twice.

So, Honorable Fretsburg. I am going to say that your explainer and the way that you wrote the proposal and explained it in a way that seems to understand and respect the procedure of the executive and of the Chancellor. So I will be ruling this proposal as CONSTITUTIONAL!

Next please.


The Justice of Ostry stands up

This is gonna be a quick trial I see. So anyways, I will go with what opinions have been given. Personally, I think you also understand and respect well the procedure of the legislature and the judiciary. So much saw that you seemed to be going through this process legally. For that I will fully acknowledge your proposal as CONSTITUTIONAL!


The other justices decide to give out a Constitutional verdict to Fretsburg as the proposal violated none of the articles listed in the Constitution.

Alright then, as Chief Justice. I shall announce the ruling.

By a unanimous decision, The Honorable Fretsburg's proposal is Constitutional and is permitted to pass to the Technocratic Council.


Turner strikes his gavel three times and the entirety of the chamber claps.

Everyone leaves, the session is over.

Margeaux Tortune begins an inquiry on whether or not it would be legal to ban the ideology of the RG, as the ideology of the RG is rooted in extreme racism based on the color of one's hair (the RG hates blondes), Margeaux argues that the RG's ideology is not protected under Article 10 which states that:

The people of Cavirfi shall have the right to criticize the government, as well as criticize each other's opinions, freely. Without interference from the state. For as long, as it doesn't incite violence directly against a certain group. Speech critical of certain communities and identities or speech in support of said communities and identities, shall be protected by the State.


The Chief Justice opens the trial and the justices begin debating

Yesterday, the Great Tribunal rules in a 5-3 decision that any ideology no matter how extreme cannot be made illegal in Cavirfi under Article 10 of the Constitution protecting free speech. However speech that directly incites violence against people groups will remain illegal and punishment remains enforceable under federal law.

Meanwhile the Great Tribunal decides to actively challenge the Great Farmer's executive order regarding the withdrawal from the World Assembly which was signed just this afternoon on the basis of a certain resolution that the Great Farmer deemed unconstitutional was extremely likely to pass the General Assembly. The Justices meet in an emergency meeting ordered by Chief Justice, Mayson Turner, the Justices decide to debate the legality of the withdrawal.

Justices in support of the executive order state that the Great Farmer was the sole person who authorized the entry of Cavirfi into the World Assembly and thus she has every right to withdraw when she wants to. The supporting side reinforces their argument stating that the Great Farmer is required by Article 17 of the Constitution to respect the Constitution and do everything that she can to protect it.

Justices against the executive order state that the Great Farmer does not have authority to singlehandedly sign Cavirfi's withdrawal from the World Assembly and that by signing the Constitution days after entry into the World Assembly, the Great Farmer had voluntarilly vested her powers in constitutional (albeit undemocratic) mechanics rather than single-person autocratic rule. They also argue that the resolution that she stated was the reason for Cavirfi's withdrawal can be enforced in Cavirfi without violating the pro-NiceGuy Constitution by simply putting up safeguard laws that protect Cavirfite citizens from false accusations rather than overrelying on the World Assembly to address Cavirfi's individual concerns as a member state.

The Justices in support of the executive order rebutt this argument by stating that these "safeguard laws" would in essence be interpreted as bypassing the WA Resolution and thus a violation of WA Law but the Justices in opposition rebutt that the WA in the end is a rather ineffective institution that tends to not enforce its laws, so withdrawing for a resolution that one doesn't like is quite an overreaction.

The debate continues and the Great Tribunal decides to hold the final verdict

By a verdict of 6-2, the Great Tribunal declares that the Executive Order is Constitutional and the withdrawal of Cavirfi from the World Assembly is official.

The Great Tribunal opens the first session of the "Cavirfi v. Fretsburg" trial, Maria Fretsburg and her lawyer, Isabelle Alexis are the plaintiffs and the defendants are the Federal Government represented by the following line of succession (this line of succession is for when the previous ranking official cannot attend court):

1. Margeaux Tortune, Great Farmer
2. Suzanne Mackenzie, Minister of Defense
3. Muskaan Tilman, Minister of Government

Currently Mackenzie is representing the Federal Government as Tortune holds a cabinet meeting on the other side of THE Barn's roundabout.

The first session of the trial lasted for 1 hour from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM and mainly covered the evidence that plaintiffs Fretsburg and Alexis believe prove the illegality of the torturing of the 154 Class C OPLA Perpetrators detained at the military prison, Gutensland Fort Detention Center Golf. Fretsburg claims that the main reason why the torture is illegal is that; especially in regards to the incident where former Education Minister of Civetia, Isidros Miller; was hosed with sewage water over committing the crime of "apartheid". That the crime of apartheid was:

1. Not a law, it is written in Code 2020 XIV which is a Cavirfite ethical code, not a law.

2. Even if Code 2020 XIV is law. The Crime of Apartheid must be punished by death, not by torture. Fretsburg makes the claim that because an erroneous punishment was given, that the treatment and torture of the Class C prisoners is thus illegal under the principle that applying "Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno" to the prisoners thus entitle them to both the rights and the consequences of being tried under the conditions of the legal designation as mandated by the Citia Treaty's conventions on justice. In other words, if it's illegal to torture one of the Class C Prisoners, it is illegal to torture all Class C prisoners. To not give the prisoners the rights entitled to them as part of their legal conditions would be a violation of the Citia Treaty.

Fretsburg and Alexis also argue that:

3. The persona non iura order handed out by the Great Farmer is illegal because nowhere in the Constitution does it state that the Great Farmer has the right to declare either Cavirfite or foreign prisoners such statuses. Alexis in particular states that the Great Farmer is violating Article 9 of the Constitution by witholding the Great Tribunal's right to "carry out penalties for crimes committed during war times."

Alexis states that torture violates this section of Article 9 by deliberately postponing the trial of the Class C prisoners through unnecessary remand (pre-trial detention). Alexis further defends her position by stating that remand within the Jurisdiction of the Municipality of Barnumberg (where the prison is located) while not having a limit on the number of days one must be remanded, still prohibits the use of torture for any reason as per Municipality of Barnumberg Regional Executive Order 2021 LXXVIII. Thus by permitting torture within the territorial bounds of the Municipality of Barnumberg de jure, the Federal Government has violated regional law and thus overstepped its central authority.


Mackenzie defends the Federal Government with these following defenses:

1. Cavirfite ethical codes while not having the power of law de jure still acts as basis from which actual law is created upon and promulgated, to say that the Crime of Apartheid does not exist in Cavirfi because it is merely written in a code rather than a law would thus undermine the overall legal security of the Cavirfite State because if legal or extralegal action and/or retaliation is invalidated simply because it is ordered by code, then the very existence of all Cavirfite laws which in themselves are ordered by code are thus invalid, making Cavirfi a lawless society and thus violating Article 18 of the Constitution which demands that some form of law exist in the Free Land of Cavirfi.

2. Cavirfi is not a signatory of the Citia Treaty and is only a member of the World Congress by special statute granting permission for Cavirfi to ascend to the WC without having to obey the Citia Treaty. Thus to say that the act by which Cavirfi has done to make the specific torture of ex-minister Miller illegal does not simply exist within the bounds of Cavirfite law or any international law by which the Cavirfite state currently abides.

3. Saying that torturing Isidros Miller is illegal because the punishment prescribed to him by law (that is Code 2020 XIV which Mackenzie states is law under Federal Directive) is not the one that he is being currently given (his de jure punishment should be death, his de facto punishment is torture) would thus make literally every other form of death row in any country in any part of the world illegal. To back this up, Miller has not yet been tried by the Great Tribunal and is thus under remand making him not yet a convicted violator of Code 2020 XIV but rather a pre-trial detainee thus any punishments given to him in jail is not erroneous under Code 2020 XIV because he has not yet been convicted of violating Code 2020 XIV.

4. The jurisdiction of the Municipality of Barnumberg does not de jure apply to any prisons or territories of the Free Land of Cavirfi directly controlled by the Cavirfite Sovereign Guard (the military) as the Sovereign Guard is under federal control and thus the federal government is thus in control of the prisons thus granting the federal government the right to override Barnumberg regional law within their prisons, as the prisons are not even technically a part of Barnumberg, they're owned directly by the Free Land of Cavirfi. Making the federal law of the Free Land of Cavirfi in regards to pre-trial detention legal and not an override of regional authority. Further more, in regards to federal protocol on remand, no proscription of torture exists and definitely no limit on the number of days one can be remanded is put into place. In other words, the Great Farmer is not violating Article 9 by witholding trial "unnecessarily" because there's no limit into how long a "necessary" witholding of the trial can take place.


Alexis makes two objections to Mackenzie's defense:

1. Yes, Cavirfite law does draw from code, however code and law exists in different realms legally and thus to state that somehow all Cavirfite law loses legitimacy because their inspirations from a different realm of jurisdiction (that is no jurisdiction at all since Cavirfite ethical codes do not hold any real legal value as the Great Farmer signed them before the Constitution was enacted) do not really hold as stated any real legal value is absurd. Next, Code 2020 XIV may be a code that can be turned into law when necessary however the fact that no law exists within the archive of the Ministry of Government or the Ministry of Justice that bases itself off of Code 2020 XIV thus makes any usage of it in actual enforcement both illegal and simply baseless.

2. Since Cavirfi is not a signatory of the Citia Treaty and since there's no law in Cavirfi that permits the doctrine of "Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno", to use this doctrine is illegal and the Great Farmer has no formal authority to just make up and use the doctrine on the spot for a one-off detention of 154 people. One could argue that the Great Farmer has the authority to declare these prisoners as such since she made the doctrine on the spot through an executive order however executive orders are not laws constitutionally and the fact of the matter is, while the torture issue is primarily moral it is also a legal issue and if this case rules that the Great Farmer's probable fabrication of a legal doctrine without prior consultation of the Technocratic Council or the Chancellor is somehow okay, is to put it mildly, too much power for a court to grant the head of state. In short, there exists no such thing as an "Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno" doctrine in Cavirfite law and allowing the Great Farmer to just make it up without prior consultation essentially delegitimizes the entirety of the Cavirifte Constitution. Might as well abolish it and grant the Great Farmer absolute rule altogether.


The session continues for a while until the justices close it for tomorrow, by a strike of a gavel, the first session of "Cavirfi v. Fretsburg" is now over.

The second session will be held tomorrow: December 3, 2022 (Saturday).

From 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM of Wednesday (December 7, 2022), the Great Tribunal holds the fifth session of the "Cavirfi v. Fretsburg" trial. Maria Fretsburg and her lawyer, Isabelle Alexis are the plaintiffs. While Margeaux Tortune, who is the head of state of Cavirfi is representing the Federal Government who are the defendants.

This session mainly covered the legality of the extradition of the 154 Class C OPLA perpetrators from Crabaiaia to Cavirfi. Alexis claims that because the (legally) alleged crimes were committed in Crabaiaia and was committed against other Crabaiaian citizens thus making the extradition to Cavirfi illegal. However, Tortune objects to Alexis's statement stating that since the genocide was primarily against NiceGuys that the NiceGuy people have a special right to try the criminals in any country that has an extradition agreement with Crabaiaia. Alexis objects, stating that the NiceGuy people are not internationally recognized as a people group and is not even de jure recognized as a people group under both Crabaiaian AND Cavirfite law (for context, they are only de facto recognized). Alexis backs this stating that even if the victims of the genocide were a legally recognized people group, that doesn't entitle them to any special rights to try their oppressors in any country aside from Crabaiaia itself especially if that other country has a more authoritarian penal system than Crabaiaia (i.e: Cavirfi).

The session continues on for six hours until the Chief Justice adjourns the session for tomorrow. By a strike of a gavel, the fifth session of "Cavirfi v. Fretsburg" is now over.

The sixth session will be held tomorrow: December 8, 2022 (Thursday)
