Examination Branch Proposal DocumentEdit
This is a proposal for the documentation and approval for the Parliament of the Politically Incorrect Board of 4chan. It is so the people of the Parliament of /pol/itically incorrect may reserve the constitutional right to purge, impeach, or reprimand any elected official for any oppressive or tyrannical action. Yet again, it is for the advancement and betterment of the government itself, so that it may commit it's well being to its own respective jobs and duties, therefore eliminating any possible chance for a relapse in the systems upholding itself. The branch proposed has no official name, but will be referred to as the 'Examination Branch' until a suitable name has been distinguished.
Article. I. Section. 1.Edit
The purpose of The Examination Branch is solely to oversee the members of Executive, Judicial, and Legislative Branches of Government. They are to investigate and ensure that all members of Parliament are acting in a manner consistent with the Honor, Trust, and Good Faith entrusted to them. If a person is found with reasonable suspicion to have committed, or be committing, any crime at all, the member(s) of this branch overseeing this particular investigation are to consolidate all information to prove their rational and commence their Investigation in the manner required by Law. Once this legitimate suspicion is found and an investigation begins, any person(s) being investigated shall be formally notified of the investigation, what type of proscribed action they are being investigated for, and what legitimate suspicion prompted the investigation. If it is later determined that there was not an adequate suspicion to begin the investigation (see Article. I. Section. 4.), then the investigation shall cease.
Article I. Section. 2.Edit
The Examination Branch has the authority to bring charges against any member of Parliament or any civil servant of government according to the due processes of law. Such proscribe actions are as follows: blackmail, bribing, enticing corruption, criminal collusion, dereliction of duty, treason, and conspiracy to commit, knowing aiding, and knowing abetting any of the mentioned offenses. Once the accused are caught, it will be the secondary duty of the Examination Branch to charge the accused and, if found guilty in an assembly court(see Article. I. Section. 4.)to document the decision. The tertiary goal of the Examination Branch is to periodically, according to the requirements of Law, launch investigations against its own members.
Article I. Section. 3.Edit
The Examination Branch is composed of a two vessels and an Inquisitor. The first vessel is composed of the Auditors. The Auditors' job is outlined as such; to ensure all civil Officers are preforming their duties with Integrity, and conduct investigations, interrogations in a manner according to Law. Should evidence be found for an investigation, the Auditors are to obtain a legal warrant from the Justices so that they may arrest the criminals, but only if the Justices feel that the evidence is sufficient for a Conviction.
The second vessel is composed of the Officers. The Officers' job is to inspect the Auditors for any misdemeanors they may have committed themselves, and, in a manner like the Auditors, get a legal warrant from the Justices so that they may arrest the criminals and bring charges to them.
The Inquisitors job is to document all investigations and interrogations, keep said documentations in a place for the Examination Branch to see, and to release them to the public according to protocol. Interrogations are to be released to the public after the trial. If a trial does not occur, they are to release them at the end of their term. They are also to release documents of investigations in the same manner.
Article I. Section. 4.Edit
Any Auditor, Officer, or the Inquisitor may, at any time, ask for a Hearing before the Supreme Court to review whether there were any Constitutional violations while conducting an investigation in a manner prescribed by law. Any breaches in the Examination Branch can result in: the inadmissibility of certain evidence; the dismissal, either temporary or permanently, of an investigating Auditor or Officer; reprimanding of an investigating Auditor or Officer; the termination of the investigation on the affected person(s), the dropping of charges, the exoneration of any wrongdoings and restoration of any lost position or status, and/or any other action enacted by parliament through law.
