ICJ: Solve the Problem in a Reasonable Way

1.REPUBLIC OF GUINEA V. DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO

After the country changed its name to the Republic of Zaire in 1971, Mr. Diallo founded Africom-Zaire. Moreover, he became the sole manager of the second company after a brief cooperation with a partner established by another limited liability company, Africontainers-Zaire. Due to the deterioration of the relationship between the partners, Mr. Diallo has various compensation claims in court, including Zaire Fina, Zaire Shell, Zaire Mobil Oil and Zaire. The litigants themselves and their former partners have confronted each other.

Trial result:(1) Compensation for the invasion of his human rights.

         (2) Insufficient evidence so that we can’t judge.

2.UKRAINE V. RUSSIAN FEDERATION

Ukraine sues Russia for Russia trying to nationalize Ukraine, forcing the Ukrainian to study Russian and threatening them for reducing the supply of gas to Ukraine.

TENSIONS IN SECURITY COUNCIL

East Timorese Suffer While UN Bureaucrats Argue

USSR gives a speech defending the legitimacy of the East Timor Government

(Transcript from our evening broadcast)

[Bill O’Reilly]

Good evening, America. A truly dire situation happening right now in East Timor. 300 civilians were killed and at least one school was destroyed as Indonesian forces entered the region. The security council failed today to pass any joint directive attempting to address the crisis, and the people continue to suffer. Indonesia, along with the United States, does not recognize the current government in East Timor.

America’s sustained efforts to launch a UN blue helmet mission in the region, along with a package of humanitarian aid was blocked by a USSR veto, despite garnering a majority of support in the body. East Timor replied with the comment : “I love the Cold War.”

In a one-on-one interview, East Timor critiqued American involvement, affirming that “the US does not give a crap about self-determination” and ended our interview by saying “I have a ton of oil and natural gas, just saying.” This is truly deplorable—the US is acting in good faith, attempting to solve the crisis, and East Timor (along with its Soviet ally) is blocking negotiations.

[Shepard Smith]

It’s true, Bill, that’s totally right. What I find even more interesting is how absolutely gridlocked the UN is. Disagreement is the word of the day at the Security Council, the UN body voted down two joint directives attempting solutions to this crisis. It’s truly deplorable and, in my opinion, it’s proving once again what a waste of money the UN is. We don’t need to go through the security council, and frankly it’s a waste of time. [Bill O’Reilly]

Sure, Shepard. What I find especially interesting is the budgets that governments on the Security Council are sitting on right now. According to our independent investigation, countries have allocated over a billion dollars to solve this crisis. This is money that’s sitting at the UN, doing nothing, not helping the East Timorese people who have been stuck in the middle of this and whose daily life is being completely disrupted. Now, for our special report on Utah’s tense House race.

UNHCR: The Trump Administration Bashes Multiple Countries’ Foreign Policies. Tensions Rise

Earlier today, the delegate for the Trump Administration was caught questioning Japan and other countries’ ability to follow foreign policy. When asked, the Administration concurred with the statement and named the delegate of Germany in particular, who just happened to be walking by.

Germany made an off-hand remark about the Administration working with North Korea, which sent her into a frenzy.

Many statements were issued, including “Trump is the best president ever,” and something about Angela Merkel's business under the table.

After the event, the Administration stated:  “The United States of America believes countries should not only be dictated by their ideologies but should be directed by the interests of the people in their nation. By working with all countries we can achieve a comprehensive solution.”

Japan is currently the 4th highest donor to the UNHCR. They are also a humanitarian country that sends peacekeeping troops.

OPINION: ICJ: Mr. Diallo has Been Deprived of Basic Human Rights and Dignity

The oval table was filled with judges from all around the world ready to plead the case of Mr. Diallo. A hue of yellow was tinting their restlessly eager faces. A rapid-fire session of arguments and rebuttal was about to be in process.

The session was put in order and although the judges laid out strongly-built arguments, one should conclude that Mr. Diallo has been deprived of basic human rights and dignity.

"We are requesting moral compensation for Mr. Diallo for at least 100 000$." said Judge Fausto Pocar #ICJMUNC2018

"We are requesting moral compensation for Mr. Diallo for at least 100 000$." said Judge Fausto Pocar #ICJMUNC2018

Mr. Diallo has been imprisoned wrongly by the Democratic Republic of Congo of which he had been a resident for 32 years.

The International Court of Justice should take action and repair the many years of psychological damages caused to Mr. Diallo.

With missing evidence from the lawyers pleading the case of Mr. Diallo, the lawyer Dalveer Bhandari, member of the opposition stated that “the burden of proof relied only on the opposition”.

Rosalie Lanteigne - Euronews

Although being true, lawyers that provide evidence should be acknowledged for their work rather than being disregarded due to lack of specific details.

UPDATE JUST IN: The judges have agreed that Mr. Diallo’s human rights and dignity were breached. A 100 000$ compensation will be granted to Mr. Diallo.


UNSC: BREAKING - East Timor Capital Under Siege

Tensions are high in the committee room as the city of Dili, East Timor is currently under siege from an attack from the Indonesia Army, many losses are counted yet mostly from are from the East Timor side. Currently the Security council is current at work to deal with the developing events.

East Timor is outraged by this attack and demands action from other countries and has denounced indonesia for their actions and effectively unrecognized Indonesia as a country.

The USSR has made it clear that it was a terrible action Indonesia has done on the sovereignty of the East Timorese people and desires peace in the region. Yet, Indonesia insists that the occupation of East Timor was necessary for the security of the region

Many countries including the USSR and the United states want to take actions in the events happening in the region, but are on clear disagreements of the process of it.

Countries like Nigeria and Australia has expressed more action such as a peacekeeping force to stop these atrocities from continuing.

The USSR and East Timor made it clear that the best possible solution is to force Indonesia to withdraw from East Timor and let the people have a right to self determination. Both countries believe it is the best possible solution, as they believe other countries like the United States are not stepping up to stop Indonesia from invading a sovereign territory and protect the interests of the East Timorese. Meanwhile countries like the United States and Mexico say otherwise as they believe there needs to be order in the region and have a more democratic and peaceful forms of succession. Yet, there are some murmurings that there are more ulterior motives of countries like the United States on this issue due to their interests in the region, especially on oil.  

Time will tell if peace will be achieved, if all countries cooperate on the this ongoing issue and follow the USSR’s lead in respecting the sovereignty of East Timor.

Achieving Agenda 2063: Economy And Education Are The Priority

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 4.21.56 PM.png

Rwanda’s delegate, Ousmane Ndiaye-Kaberamanzi

As the African Union debates on ways to achieve Agenda 2063, the nations are not agreeing on the most important issue of the agenda. While some believe that education should be the first issue to tackle, some insist on the importance of economic development of the continent.

Fourteen countries, including Botswana, Rwanda, Uganda, Sudan and Madagascar are working on a resolution which will focus on the importance of improving the education system across Africa, as a way to improve the quality of life of the future African generations.

“We believe that if we increase education, and at the same time we increase the number of jobs […] there will be […] economic growth” states Rwanda’s delegate.

On the other side, another group has formed between Djibouti, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Ethiopia and other nations, claiming that the main issue would be the economic development of Africa.

As Zimbabwe states during a debate on the importance of education, which is restated later by Djibouti’s delegate, education is a big issue, but they’re afraid that if they don’t stress enough on economic growth, the educated people will simply leave, because of the lack of work opportunities.

“We want a better Africa made by Africa,.” insists Djibouti’s delegate.

When questioned on this matter, Rwanda states that his group are also concerned by economic development. They plan on working on both issues at the same time.

“It’s a long term effort, but we have a fund of  UNICEF and some institutions like the United Nations which will serve as a base”, Rwanda affirms.

Another small group is also working on economic development, especially on the issue of corruption.

The delegate of the United States of America responds to Venezuelan claims. (Paul Slade/Paris Match/Getty Images)

The Security Council’s veto powers’ were a point of contention at the United Nations General Assembly.  Reform initiatives were discussed for a more proportional representation. Currently, veto powers are limited to the Permanent 5 countries and winners of World War II: Russia, the U.S., China, the United Kingdom and France.  

France maintained that they previously motioned to decentralize authority to veto, but that they lacked Russia and the U.S’s support. 

The delegate of the United States of America posited that they were “open to accommodation.” They posited that they were against the restrictions of vetoing to the P5 countries. They shared their interested in wanting to achieve proportional representation for nations.    

Venezuela claimed “the U.S does not want to relinquish power.”  The delegate from Venezuela asserted its intention to “reinstate democracy,” so that all nations would be equal before the law. Venezuela claims “no nation, however rich, large and armed, should bully another” and pushed for the motion to inspect the Eurocentrism inherent in veto powers. 

The U.S. says that they were misquoted. Their veto power was earned and deserved in its incessant aid to other nations.

The delegate of the UK continuously motioned to discuss Russia’s historical vetoing uses. The motion was tied after 3 re-votes. The Russian Federation immediately postulated that in case of a tie, the motion fails. The delegate of Spain then walked back into the room. Their vote had not yet been taken into account. After a few moments of silence, Spain voted against the motion. 

Venezuela reaffirmed that it will not comprise for democracy. Having been threatened with nuclear weapons, Venezuela claimed “equality is not the status quo”.

UNOOSA: China and America Get Together to Collaborate

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 15.56.37.png

In a previous article, CNN commented on China and America’s inability to work together and the aggression that had become of it. However, that seems to have all been resolved, as China and America have brokered a deal for space collaboration.

“Previously, the Wolf amendment banned China from the US’ space shuttle, but now China will be allowed to enter and the Wolf amendment will be revised,” said China’s delegate. “In exchange, all Chinese astronauts on the ISS will be background checked.”

Soon China will have access to the ISS. This could lead the way into warm confrontations in the future and negotiations that could positively affect the US, China, and many other countries.

L’espace : place à la coopération internationale?

Le Bureau des affaires spatiales des Nations unies (UNOOSA) tient une rencontre en cette fin de semaine à Montréal, notamment pour discuter de coopération internationale en matière d’exploration et d’innovations spatiales.

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 15.40.28.png

 17 Novembre 2018

L’histoire a voulu que la conquête de l’espace au niveau mondial s’opère sous forme de course. Des États-Unis d’Amérique à la Fédération de Russie, en passant par la Chine, et pourquoi pas l’Inde, la première place a été férocement disputée.

Aujourd’hui, d’importants projets comme la Station spatiale internationale sont pris en exemple pour démontrer l’étendue des accomplissements rendus possibles par la coopération internationale. Pourtant, en février 2017, l’Inde a établi un record mondial en envoyant dans l’espace, en une seule mission, 103 satellites, dont 100 qui serviront à l’exploitation commerciale.

Dans un monde où la menace de sanctions commerciales est de plus en plus utilisée et mise en pratique, notamment par le président américain, Donald Trump, quel rôle l’innovation spatiale peut-elle jouer sur l’échiquier politique et économique mondial?

Lors des rencontres précédentes de l’UNOOSA, CNN et Russia Today ont déjà rapporté les tensions entre la Chine et les États-Unis. Sachant que ces deux pays se disputent actuellement le titre de première puissance économique mondiale, leur opposition au sujet de l’innovation spatiale n’est pas étonnante.

L’UNOOSA a pour but de favoriser une exploration et un développement pacifique dans l’espace, et ce, tout en encourageant la coopération internationale. Dans un monde accro à la croissance économique et adepte de la revanche commerciale, et maintenant des guerres commerciales, l’espace pourrait-il redevenir le terrain d’éventuelles guerres?

Les délégués des différents pays présents à la rencontre semblent s’accorder pour prioriser avant tout la coopération internationale. Il semblerait que les États-Unis et la Chine soient les seuls à vouloir mettre le feu aux poudres. Leurs disputes n’empêchent donc pas les délégations des autres pays de s’unir pour travailler sur différentes solutions.

L’Espagne et la Belgique travaillent d’ailleurs avec d’autres pays sur une proposition concernant le développement durable dans l’espace. Ils ont notamment soulevé la place grandissante du secteur privé dans les affaires spatiales et ont exprimé le désir de faire en sorte que les compagnies qui y investissent aient certaines obligations.

De son côté, la France s’est unie au Qatar, à l’Afrique du Sud, l’Algérie et le Mexique. Ils travaillent actuellement sur une résolution pour favoriser la coopération internationale, notamment par l’élaboration d’un « conseil international incluant tous les pays » pour collaborer à l’innovation spatiale, le tout en incluant dans le processus les entreprises privées.

Il ne reste maintenant que deux rencontres de l’UNOOSA en cette fin de semaine. Les pays semblent avoir bien entamé les discussions et être prêts à offrir des solutions. Celles-ci incluront-elles l’économie mondiale et sa place dans les affaires concernant l’espace? Il s’agit certainement d’un comité à suivre de près.

Leftist Wave Threatens to Sweep African Economies

African Union delegates have brought to the table many far-left ideas in the last sitting of their MUNC committee.


Spearheaded by the delegates from the likes of Tunisia and Morocco, their resolution aims at implementing measures that taxes and tariffs exports out of the continent’s nations. As a result, companies employing many Africans in the mining and production industries will face higher costs. According to Yassine Assameur, the delegate representing Tunisia explained in my one-on-one interview, “higher costs to companies will force them to invest back in Africa instead of taking our resources and sending them to Asia.”


Nationalization is another facet of the proposed resolution. Natural resources in Africa, according to Assameur, are being controlled by said large corporations. “The only way to make sure there is no corruption is to put our resources and profits in the hands of Africans,” Tunisia argues.


A watchdog will also be implemented, responsible to oversee corporations and governments for any corrupt activities. It will defer any cases necessary to a court of justice for trials.


Marty McFreedom, Sun News Economic Analyst, warns the dangers of these newly tabled measures, “Giving more money to these corrupt nations will only increase the problems Africans face on a day-to-day basis.” McFreedom argues that by imposing anti-business taxes and tariffs and impounding their various products for nationalization, African nations are just furthering their corrupt status. “Not only will this increase big government, but it will take jobs away from them hard working Africans. Just wait and see all these companies shut down.”


The African Union vote on this resolution is scheduled for later on today.

What Better Education is Going to do in Africa

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 3.33.13 PM.png

The African Union has been debating education for most of the day, but what is education actually going to do for Africa? I asked some of the delegates who represent African countries and here’s what they said:

“Giving children education will give us more workers” -Algeria

“Africa will have a promising future by allowing everyone in it to have education” -Rwanda

“Education help people get jobs that aren’t just in agriculture but adding the option to be an engineer. Basically we want to change it from poverty reduction to wealth creation.” -Burundi

Although some blocs believe differently, one says that before they tackle the education problem there are other problems that need to be resolved, because if you educate the youth without fixing the economy first they will leave to countries with more promising jobs.

Also many countries agree that some children’s parents need them to work and if we force them to go to school instead of help out at home then they could suffer; but if there is way to educate the youth while also keeping the needs of the family in mind, they are all for it.

The West’s Denuclearization Program

France, the US, Italy, South Korea and Israel have formed a coalition with a goal to “denuclearize” and disarm what they call “unstable regions”.

“Examples of unstable regions include: North Korea, Iran and Pakistan.” According to the delegate representing the US.

This coalition’s goal is to moderate countries that are considered “Threats”. While three countries out of five countries in the coalition (France, the United States and Israel) have some of the biggest nuclear arsenals in the world. The US promises to also begin a denuclearization program but at a much slower rate and after the countries this policy targets have achieved it.

What gives these countries the right to decide who is a threat ? Until recently, the only country that has used nuclear weapons on another country and subsequently civilians has been the US. In 1945 the US dropped not 1 but 2 bombs on Japan. When this fact was brought up in an interview to the US delegate, he answered: “I think it’s important to notice the historical context we are in. Today is not same as 1945 when the nuclear bombs were launched. In that time people did not know the destructive powers of those nuclear weapons.” The delegate is right, today is not the same as 1945. But then why does the US have one of the largest nuclear arsenals if it was the only country who witnessed first hand the destructive powers of the bomb ?

OIPC : Le trafic humain , plus qu’une épine au pied!

Créée le 7 septembre 1923, Interpol ou l’Organisation Internationale de la police Criminelle (OIPC) a pour but de promouvoir la coopération policière internationale.

Aujourd’hui encore les délégués de ce comité ont essayé de adresser les problèmes et ont proposé les solutions conventionnelles quant au trafic d’humains.

L’Indonésie pense que l’une des choses importantes à faire est de renforcer la surveillance des gardes côtières. À ce sujet, Bosnie et Herzégovine le rejoint et ajoute qu’il faut non seulement ce renforcement, il faut aussi former les gardes pour qu’ils puissent reconnaître les trafiquants et leurs façons d’opérer. Cependant il paraît impossible pour l’Indonésie d’envoyer  tous ces gardes de diverses cotes à des formations en Europe ou autre part par manque de fonds, mais elle propose une protection des points d’entrées et sorties des voies maritimes et aériennes, parce que selon elle, ce sont les voies les plus accessibles aux trafiquants d’humains.

La chine met l’emphase sur la collaboration avec d’autre pays pour redoubler leur vigilance sur les gardes côtières, idée que partage totalement le Royaume-Uni.

Le Pakistan, met la traite d’humains dans un tout autre niveau, et propose une solution incontournable, la standardisation de l’éducation. Les États-Unis est totalement d’accord et pense que toute personne occupant un poste doit être formée continuellement, permettant ainsi la globalisation des connaissances à travers le monde entier.

Diallo, Guinea, and the DPR: ICJ Hears International Case

Ahmadou Sadio Diallo, a Guinean businessman has, according to his legal team, been unjustly Imprisoned by The Democratic Republic of Congo after being a resident for 32 years. Diallo has been imprisoned after pursuing debts owed to his businesses Africom-Zaire and Africontainers-Zaire by the Congolese state and oil companies on Congolese land in which the state has major shares.

According to ICJ records, Mr. Diallo’s basic rights have been stripped of him. Diallo also claims he has been unjustly deprived of his properties, that have been confiscated by the State of Congo. The defendant was expulsed by Congo and stripped of his businesses after his 75-day long detention in Congo.

Guinea has three main arguments that it is in the process of proving now: “Point one: Individual rights and property rights have been violated and the state that has violated these rights must be sued.” “Point two: we attribute those acts to the responsibility of the Republic of Congo.” “Three: They will pay for reparations and compensation,” according to a lawyer representing Guinea

Congo claims that it was it was in every right to expulse Mr. Diallo from their country since they are not violating any Congolese laws. Congo does not intend to repay any compensation since it claims Guinea has not correctly invoked diplomatic protection, “In the Congo’s eyes, the issue of diplomatic protection was not correctly invoked by guinea, which means they have no leg to stand on to invoke any crimes and thereby there should be no compensation payed in any matter to Guinea,” says a lawyer representing Congo

UNOOSA: Cooperation still strong despite tensions between US and China

Countries are hard at work for solutions on the future of space development

Countries are hard at work for solutions on the future of space development

Day 2 and tensions are rising since the get go this morning in the committee room as the United States and China as they are repeatedly attacking each on the control and share of space exploration and development.

The two countries are continually opposing each other with accusations such as having a monopoly over the space industry and not letting other countries have a chance to develop.

However, many other countries really push for the discussion of unity rather than divisive rhetoric such as deciding who has control of the whole industry. They opt to rather discuss education for the youth, development of satellites and more development of the private industry. Yet again Russia is still at the forefront of the discussion, setting the tone that they are an uniter rather than a divider. Russia has pushing for more unity of this matter, managing to get China and the United States to push aside their differences and support their cause on the development of the space industry and wants to make sure all countries work together rather than making enemies with each other.


Currently, the countries are in the process of drafting resolutions and proposing actual solutions to this issue.

Israel Declares War on United Arab Republic

Crisis has struck as Israel has declared war on the newly formed United Arab Republic (UAR), which includes Egypt and Sudan. The UAR is currently denying any responsibility, with the backing up of Jordan and various other states.

“Israel wants to discredit this attack for access to the canal. We suspect that the attack was staged,” states Hussein Bin Talal, representative of Jordan.

Apparently the planes that attacked Israel, while painted Egyptian, were not Egyptian tech. This suggests that either a fringe terrorist group or the Israelites themselves are behind the attacks. Israel denies this information.

“Our policy is an eye for an eye,” David Ben-Gurion Israel states. “We are just protecting our land.”

Jordan is planning to capture Jerusalem, with the help of other Arab countries.

The US has currently abstained from choosing sides.

USA STRONG IN UNGA

America a Voice of Reason in Security Council Reform Task Force

American and Russian representatives shaking hands

American and Russian representatives shaking hands

(Transcript from our evening broadcast)

[Sean Hannity, evening anchor]

Now, for an update on the tense discussions happening at the UN today:

[Tucker Carlson, commentator]

The US representative to the UNGA (pictured above shaking hands with Russia’s rep.) was highly productive in today’s first meeting of the committee, whose aim is to examine which steps, if any, need to be taken to reform the security council.

Countries, especially those from the G4, as well as Algeria, voiced their support for the expansion of veto rights to more nations. The UK and France, notably, reaffirmed their friendship, stating that they are “absolutely BFFs” and that they will work together to make the UNSC more representative of our times. In particular, they support adding more temporary members to the Security Council.

Russia played an important and controversial role in the session : despite repeated attempts at passing a moderated caucus to discuss Russia’s appalling use of veto power, which were highly supported by the chairs, the committee was uninterested in examining the soviet giant’s history. Russia rejected vehemently all accusations of its invasion of Crimea and subsequent use of veto power to prevent international intervention, stating that these attacks were “hypocritical” and that “all P5 nations have used veto in their favor.”

China was also highly critical of the US, affirming the “constant need to keep US power in check.” The Eastern giant also made bogus claims about the US not paying its dues in the Security Council. Our representative, meanwhile, was busy making progress with allies to defend our interests by maintaining America’s veto power, while expanding it to other nations in a limited capacity.

[Sean Hannity]

Alright, thank you Tucker. Now, for our special report on the violent fires ravaging California.

AHMADOU SADIO DIALLO: A MATTER OF HUMAN RIGHTS

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 11.41.37.png

Was Diallo rightfully detained?

Tomorrow will be the day Ahmadou Sadio Diallo faces the the International Court of Justice. Mr. Diallo was detained in 1985 and subsequently deported from the Democratic Republic of Congo (then Zaire) in 1986. Labelled as a ‘refusal of entry’, the DRC has denied Diallo’s legal recourse.

Guinea, Diallo’s homeland, then submitted his case to the International Court of Justice, claiming he has been deprived of his human rights and dignity, not only as himself but has a shareholder of companies.

Judge Augusto Trindade stated before the first hearing, that, “there have been various conventions that have been violated in this case.”

Guinea has stated, during the first hearing, that several conventions has been violated during the detention and deportation of Diallo, notably the The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966, the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations of 1963, and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights of 1981.

The DRC claims that the case has never been a matter of diplomatic relationships, and that Guinea has failed to present any evidence that the rights of Diallo were violated.

The judges are unanimous on the lack of proof to confirm the statements of both parties. They expect more to be presented later today.

OIPC : Fidji et Chine: La sensibilisation, une solution globale

Les délégués du comité de l’Organisation internationale de la police criminelle sont en accord avec la mise en place d’un système de sensibilisation face à la traite d’êtres humains et trafic de migrants.

Nonobstant une opinion presque unanime, les délégués se demandent de quelle manière procéder avec le mouvement de sensibilisation. Voici un portrait de ces délégués.

La République des Fidji :

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 11.06.57.png

La délégation de la République de Fidji est un acteur important face à la discussion du financement de la sensibilisation. L’idée d’une demande de fond à l’IMS ou à la banque mondiale fut rapidement réfutée par cette délégation.

Puisque la banque mondiale contribue déjà à un projet des Nations Unies d’éducation, la délégation considère l’approche de faire une deuxième demande arrogante. La République d’Indonésie a proposé aux nations présentes de monter un front commun face aux banques mondiales seulement si le comité était incapable de trouver du financement. La République de Fidji à rapidement exprimé son désaccord.

La délégation de la République de Fidji arbore le point que l’implication financière individuelle sera nécessaire. Un financement par pallier serait la méthode préférée puisqu’elle permettrait aux nations en développement de profiter du soutien international.  

La République de Chine :

Screen Shot 2018-11-17 at 11.07.04.png

Pour ce qui en est de la délégation de la République de la Chine, elle propose des solutions qui semblent représenter l’opinion de plusieurs délégués.

En effet, la République de la Chine croit que l’effort international doit être dirigé vers l’identification des victimes, repérer les criminels et travailler avec les organismes qui ont déjà un système mis en place. D’ailleurs, la République de la Chine a déjà un programme d’organisme que s’occupe de repérer la traite d’êtres humains.

La délégation propose aussi de former les policiers pour qu’ils puissent mieux effectuer leurs missions de détection de possible victimes et criminels de la traite d’êtres humains et trafic de migrants.

Malgré leur système économique qui dépend des manufactures qui ont souvent été prisent à brimer les droits humains, la délégation de la République de Chine croit qu’il est possible de trouver une solution qui respectent les droits et maximise le potentiel économique de la nation.
