Article 7. Law and Prosecution Standards under Permanent Peace Unity


Who has stolen sovereignty from the people? Who is monopolizing prosecutorial powers to cover up a corrupt regime? Who is the enemy of peace and justice? The answer is not others: rather, it is “one of our own” —the party government supported by the hard-earned dollars of our taxpayers. We [Taiwanese] people offer this charter as our commitment to a historical destiny. Drawing on the experiences of people who have been exploited for thousands of years, we seek to follow the desires of Heaven and humankind and promote a prosecutorial system that will serve all humanity and foster permanent peace and development.


The Charter for Permanent Peace / Universal Constitution for Human Beings / Multi-purpose Strategic Constitution and Tactics Article 7 Global Justice under Unity- this is mainly intended to confirm that [Taiwan] will serve as a model for prosecutorial action. All people shall be warriors of justice, and far-reaching and solid constitutional provisions shall be enacted. Implementing One World under One Set of Laws and exercising global co-opetition in prosecutorial work is the first step toward a global prosecutorial system. Nations shall have prosecutorial power only where global international agencies have failed to exercise prosecutorial power. Existing international inspection and supervision agencies should actively work to promote complete development of the system.

This Charter incorporates universal law and the laws of all nations into a single legal system that affords every individual equal protection. The people shall have the right to choose and directly invoke the laws and provisions of any system that promotes procedural justice, and prosecutors are obliged to guarantee people that their rights will never lag behind those of people in other countries.

Rule of law must first be applied to governments, and then to the people. The Prosecutorial Branch must be fully independent of the legislative, administrative and judicial branches. It is no longer attached to and controlled by administrative organs and can truly be the embodiment of justice.

The Prosecutor General shall be directly elected and must meet the same qualifications as candidates for the presidency. Attorneys General at local levels shall also be elected by the people, with the qualifications of candidates the same as those for county and city mayors and magistrates. The Prosecutor General shall be directly responsible to the people, and prosecutorial policies shall be monitored by the people as holders of sovereignty, a thorough shedding of the previous outdated and convoluted prosecutorial system.

In order to implement One World under One Set of Laws and achieve the political views and reform ideas of the elected Prosecutor General, the Prosecutor General-elect will form a team of 12 legal internalization lawmakers to help incorporate universal law and the laws of all nations into a single legal system.

This prosecutorial system will provide the highest quality and efficiency in legal work and inspection, utilizing the advances [Taiwan] has made and other countries have yet to make, and offering them to make up shortcomings in global prosecutorial powers , thereby demonstrating [Taiwan]’s good features to world. This peaceful contribution from [Taiwan] to the world means that those who suffer under oppressors have nothing to lose but their chains and iron curtains and the violence and lies that constrain them, while others will suffer no loss while winning the glory of a world capital, permanent peace at the supra-national level, and the release of human beings still held hostage under some 50 dictatorships world-wide.


Figure 7-1 : National inspections should conform to the rolling retrofit of more than 20,000 international standards (ISO), and then through the standardization of prosecutorial standards for the integration of permanent peace and sustainable development.

1. We affirm that a ny law which does not carry penalties is not a law, and a constitution that does not countenance resistance is not a constitution.

2. According to the trials of the International Court of Nuremberg and the Tokyo International Court of Justice, when international laws governing basic human values are inconsistent with national laws, individuals must violate national laws and exercise their right of non-cooperation or resistance.

When safeguarding international absolute laws according to Article 2.4 of the UN Charter prohibit the use of threats or force, the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Convention on the Crimes against Humanity, Convention on Human Trafficking, the Convention on the Prohibition of Racial Discrimination, The preamble to the UN Charter, the Convention against Torture, the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, and the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness, individuals must violate national laws [14] and exercise the right to non-cooperation or resistance.

5. Adapting the Constitution of permanent peace is the absolute law [15] inherent in the people, and any law against it is ineffective.

6. The consequences of the people exercising the right of resistance, disobedience, and non-cooperation are all to be settled according to the Constitution. The government has no right to pursue the people with laws below the constitutional level.

Section 11. Permanent Peace Standards 7.11 (The Transitional Provision of Prosecution– The powers extended herein are rescinded once transition is complete)

[1] See § 181 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa : The following state institutions strengthen constitutional democracy in the Republic: (a) The Public Protector.

[2] With regard to the independence of prosecutorial powers and direct election of the Attorney General and the Prosecutor General, refer to provisions of the Maryland State Constitution and the Constitution of the People's Republic of China. Please see 33 above.

[3] All state power stems from the consent of the people; the prosecutorial system shall be fully democratized and accountable.

[4] Successive terms lead to collusion and endanger administrative neutrality. This Constitution advocates maintaining the same terms of office as an institutional incentive for prosecutorial independence.

[5] History has repeatedly shown that regardless of the legislative-executive-judicial- prosecutorial structure, self-regulatory reform is ineffective. Judicial reform can only succeed with non-power holders initiating heteronomous legal reforms with the pressure of competition.

[6] Integration of prosecutorial powers means that any prosecutor who finds injustice anywhere has the right to directly pursue prosecution. This is designed to prevent local prosecutors from being blinded individually or collectively, at the expense of fairness and justice. However, the jurisdiction of elected prosecutors is limited to their constituencies.

[7] There are prosecutors belonging to administrative organs who are appointed as agents of the administrative organs, an approach followed in France; those positioned as defenders of administrative organs, such as in the US; those who are positioned as public welfare representatives or public welfare defenders, as in Japan.

[8] §5 of the Guidelines for the Role of United Nations Prosecutors .

[9] Power corrupts people, and absolute power leads to absolute corruption! Integration of Prosecutorial Powers makes it an engine of public prosecution. Until absolute power is abolished, it will not be able to push a country toward great times, great integrity and great development.

[10] See The World Constitutional Encyclopedia , the Global Criminal Code , the Global Civil Code , and the Global Administrative Code , edited by Huang Chien-ming and published by the Permanent Peace Partnership, PPP,

[11] The Guardian: A team of scientists from University College London, Sheffield University and the University of Pennsylvania in the US have jointly developed a new artificial intelligence program with built-in algorithms that can identify case data and successfully predict outcomes. The accuracy of predicted verdicts in trials reached about 80%. 2016

[12] Human history has repeatedly shown that constitutional reforms initiated by those in power has always kidnapped the power of the people.

[13] See §20 Imperial Clause of the German Basic Constitution : Resistance; §79 The right to resist may not be abridged.

[14] Definition of the absolute law ( jus cogens ): According to the latter part of Article 53 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties: the international community of states accepts and acknowledges that no derogation is allowed, and only norms in general international law that will have the same nature in the future are subject to change. The same applies to treaties and continuity of the jus cogens in §64: in the event of a new norm in international law, any existing treaty which is in conflict with that norm becomes invalid and void.

[15] "Absolute Law" or "Compulsory Law": It cannot be changed by a regime or a generation of people, and any law is incompatible with it.
