The NSM Department for Internal Affairs: active moderation, enforcement and policing.

> The Department for Internal Affairs makes all preliminary actions and decisions, depending on circumstances, variable factors and overall severity of the situation. There are two different pathways by which it becomes involved;

I] The Department (by its own initiative) intervenes to pacify a troublemaker or to calm down a situation. A prosecution-request is later made to the procurator, a tribunal organized, if deemed necessary. The Comrade-Hierarch for Internal Affairs will enact and enforce the decision of the SLC tribunal / Comrade-Hierarch for Legal Affairs, whether that includes further sanctions, or the rescinding of prior actions. If no tribunal is deemed necessary by the procurator, or otherwise directly ordered by the SCA with its high-authority, the Internal Affairs Department will assume priority jurisdiction in dealing and responding with the matter.

II] The Department has not yet been involved in a dispute, whether by not noticing it in time, or being absent from the scene. A Prosecution would be made, in which case the officials of the Internal Affairs Dept. are informed and will then proceed to control the different parties of the dispute until a solution is reached, either through SLC tribunal, or via the Department's own decision in case a tribunal is deemed unnecessary.

NOTE: Interactions related specifically to the cultural sphere(s) of NSM Member-Advocates, their origin or ancestry, religion etc. fall under the purview of the Comrade-Hierarch for Art and Civilization. Similarly, altercations related to Embassy-regions, their leadership or residents, are subject to scrutiny by the Comrade-Hierarch for Ambassadorial Affairs. WA-related deviations to the judgement of Comrade-Hierarch for Transregional Outreach etc. The Internal Affairs department is primarily concerned with CoC-violations, I.E civil cases of misconduct, although in cases of prolonged absence of attention to the other spheres of moderation, the Internal Affairs Department may involve itself according to the parameters established above, in order to provide the necessary intervention and leadership to address situations and issues.

The NSM Department for Legal Affairs: determination of culpability, outcomes and consequences.

The Cancellarius / Chairman of the I.EC: responding to appeals (prosecution appeals or verdict appeals).
