Vote Recommendation: For
The proposal at hand repeals the recently passed resolution 684, "Challenging Sexually Exploitative Recordings", specifically citing a horrendous loophole: that operating clause two's very specifically wording requiring all WA states to "to outlaw... wilful distribution of, and threats to distribute [said] recordings" and the very narrow exception "where their distribution occurs in a judicial or policing context and is necessary to help convict a person of an offence defined in this Article" means that evidence drawn from such recordings cannot be used in other criminal cases and that such evidence also cannot be used in settings such as administrative procedures, arbitration and mediation proceedings, and also cannot be used in civil proceedings in court.
We believe this proposal was drafted in haste and the loophole did not become apparent until after the resolution has moved closer to vote. The MoWAA originally opposed the resolution up for repeal but for different reasons, whereas this repeal focuses on the perverse effects of not permitting the use of the said recordings for civil litigation or for other criminal cases, an obvious oversight.
For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For the General Assembly resolution at vote, "Repeal: Challenging Sexually Exploitative Recordings".
