ALFRED WEBRE : Letter to a friend about the ITCCS and International Common Law Court of Justice

Hi! Thank you.  Please understand that I have no formal position with either the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) www.itccs.org or the International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ) www.iclcj.com, a tribunal of conscience sponsored by the ITCCS.

Here are some approaches that may be useful to answering and may overlap on some your questions.

I would call the ITCCS and the ICLCJ "Tribunals of Conscience" which are citizen-based courts that come together when the constitutional courts are refusing to adjudicate issues of major importance.

Thus the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal on which I served as a Judge was a Tribunal of Conscience of citizens which came together to render justice to victims of U.S. and U.K war crimes in Iraq who made over 40 reports of war crimes to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) without getting any effective action.

Tribunals of Conscience typically operate under the jurisdiction of natural law, which is the source of a social law (criminal, civil, family, and commercial law, as well as judge made and jury-made common law).

Typically Tribunals of Conscience can be composed of Judges or a Jury that applies International humanitarian law (such as the Geneva conventions;  Conventions against torture, etc.; criminal laws).  In order for the procedures to be valid, due process must be observed at all times, including the publication and service of charges on defendants; opportunity for the defendant to represent themselves at the proceedings; clear legal procedures; following rules of evidence.

Judgments of a Tribunal of Conscience can be enforced by any competent court or other civil authority, or by an authority created by the Tribunal of conscience itself.

In the case of the KL War Crimes Tribunal, defendant Tony Blair was subjected to petitions for arrest made to the South African government by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and other groups of prominent South Africans citing the judgments of the KL War Crimes Tribunal when Tony Blair visited South Africa.

In the case of the ITCCS and ICLCJ defendant Pope Joseph Ratzinger, the ITCCS approached a  European with the verdict and ITCCS court record of child genocide and child trafficking against Pope Joseph Ratzinger. That nation, which has a strong policy against these crimes, contacted Cardinal Bertone, then Vatican Secretary of State and stated that they would proceed to prosecute and arrest Pope Ratzinger on the basis of the crimes found in the ITCCS proceedings.  Cardinal Bertone then conferred with Pope Ratzinger and the following week, Pope Ratzinger resigned, the first Pope to do so in 600 years. He sequestered himself on the grounds of the Vatican, secure from prosecution in his on mind on the basis of the flawed 1929 Lateran Treaty by which Mussolini granted the status of a nation-state to the Vatican, a religion.

The nation that acted on the basis of the ITCCS judgement did so because the proceedings and judgments of the ITCCS as a Tribunal of Conscience meet all procedural requirements.  No civil authority was prosecuting the egregious child trafficking and child genocide crimes of defendants Government of Canada, Anglican Church, United Church of Canada and Roman Catholic Church. Hence the Tribunal of Conscience of the ITCCS could adjudicate and render enforceable judgments in these cases, providing due process proceedings were observed.

Common Law Community Training Manual

The ITCCS and ICLCJ observe due process have developed a common law training manual for their Judges, Jury members, Forensic Investigators, Common Law Sheriffs and Enforcers, who as of today number approximately 260 persons in 19 countries.

Common Law Community Training Manual
Establishing the Reign of Natural Liberty: The Common Law and its Courts
A Community Training Manual
Issued by The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (Brussels)

"What is assembling is the first court in history to bring judgment against the Vatican and the Crown of England as institutions. But our Court also signals the dawn of a new notion of justice: one defined by the people themselves, and especially by the historic victims of church and state, to bring about not only a judgment on their persecutors, but a new political and spiritual arrangement to undo the systems responsible for intergenerational crimes against humanity"
- from the founding Charter of The International Common Law Court of Justice, September 1, 2012



I would urge all serious observers of the ITCCS and ICLCJ to read this manual in full to understand the role that natural law and common law plays in the operation of the courts proceedings, jurisdiction, authority, and judgments.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if I can furnish any other information.

Alfred ;-)
