General Assembly Resolution At Vote
A resolution to enact uniform standards that protect workers, consumers, and the general public.
Area of Effect: Legal Reform
Proposed by: Barfleur
The World Assembly,
Reluctant to interfere with the legal systems of member nations when not necessary to secure a fundamental sapient right, but nonetheless
Of the mind that it is a manifest injustice for a sapient being who has unlawfully killed another sapient being to profit from such killing,
Hereby enacts as follows:
In this Resolution:
"person" means any sapient being and includes any sentient being or machine recognized by law as being a person,
"murder" means the killing of a person, in violation of the law of the jurisdiction in which such killing took place, when the perpetrator acted with intent to kill the victim or a third party, and
"court of competent jurisdiction" means the relevant court or tribunal of a member nation having jurisdiction over the crime.
Where a person stands convicted of murder (whether as a principal, accessory, or co-conspirator) and the conviction has become final on direct appeal or collateral review, the court of competent jurisdiction shall issue an order:
forbidding the person to receive any money or any other thing of value, whether from inheritance, life insurance, as payment for a contract killing, or otherwise, as a direct result of the murder, and
directing the person to disgorge, in a manner to be determined by the court of competent jurisdiction, any money or property so obtained.
Disposal of tainted assets.
Money or property disgorged under section 2 shall be disposed of:
by transferring or dividing the same as provided in the last will and testament of the deceased, in the case of money or property obtained by virtue of inheritance, except that no such money or property shall be transferred to a person convicted of the murder of the deceased,
by transferring or dividing the same among dependents and named beneficiaries, in the case of money or property obtained by virtue of life insurance, excluding any person convicted of the murder of the deceased,
by forfeiting the same to the state, in the case of money or property obtained as payment for a contract killing, and
as provided by the law, in any other case.
Member nations are strongly encouraged, but not required, to enact legislation forbidding individuals convicted of murder to profit from the licensing of any first-person account of the commission of such murder.
Debate this resolution in the General Assembly forum.
