Official statement - Barbaric punishments ~ Secretariat to the League of Nations
To Prince Alin, Deputy Head of the Board of Punishments, Greeting!
First of all, thank you for responding to our statement and condemnation, it shows at the very least that The Rexist Rijk seeks to interact with other states and organisations over these subjects.
May I start by making a point to set the record right? The League of Nations is not a state. We are an independent international organisation with multiple states as its members.
Let me utter once more that we have in common the principle that the laws of a state should be followed, and that not doing so generally warrants a punishment. The point that the League seeks to make, is that the recently implemented punishments are inhumane.
We recognise that the Ten Abominations go a long way back, and have been enshrined in your nation's culture. However, to remove parts of the body in the 21st century as a punishment is seen by us as barbaric.
Criminals should not be sentenced to the harshest punishments just to set an example in order to reduce crime rates. We believe that all persons are entitled to their body, and that no state has the right, whehter "justified" by statute or not, to infringe this right.
Therefore, our condemnation stands and will not be lifted.
Gabriella, Comtesse de Polignac Director-General to the League
