Proposal:This proposal aims to prohibit the death penalty in all circumstances and prohibits deporting sapient beings to nations where they would face the death penalty.
If this was a proposal that was given some amount of elaboration, I would've been in favor of this. But as the proposal stands right now, it gets a nay from me.
It also emplaces a total ban upon the death penalty within military service, which in times of need may well be necessary to ensure strong discipline upon a service with an unrivalled ability to cause destruction if not held to strict standards. While Lotrisia itself does not make use of the Death Penalty even in military service due to our belief in its inefficiency, we will not restrict those countries that feel as if it is a necessary measure, especially those with particularly large militaries.
More than this, the poor nature of the proposal's writing does not stand up to the necessary quality of WA legislation, and would set a poor precedent for further proposals. The section that the Commonwealth would support, banning extradition of persons to nations in which they would stand the possibility of facing the Death Penalty, is undermined by the proposal's aforementioned flaws. As such, it is the official position of the Commonwealth of Lotrisia to oppose this legislation in the World Assembly
a. forbids the imposition of the death penalty in all cases where such has not already been prohibited by prior and standing international law
I do believe that incase of horrible crimes against humanity and/or nature, the criminal should be executed. The ban on capital punishment in these very extreme cases goes against my own moral compass and giving these horrible people even the slightest chance of escape would be foolish.
