UNITED NATIONS OBSERVER GROUP IN EUROPE UNOGIE UNITED NATIONS TRUCE SUPERVISION ORGANIZATION UNTSO INTERNATIONAL JUDICIARY COURT TRIBUNAL FOR THE SECOND SOVIET-NATO EUROPEAN CONFLICT What is the United Nations faction and how should it behave on the server? The United Nations is present on the server as an ultimate neutral entity, due to the nature of the UN and the functions they carry out it is extremely important they do not get pulled into conflict or end up favoring a specific side. As such, UN characters can only be from completely neutral countries, for the current campaign we've chosen a Swiss regiment based on their ability to speak German and their historical trustworthiness to remain neutral in full-scale european conflicts. As I've currently built the faction into the server, the UN faction consists of the following whitelists: 1) UN Initiates / Auxilliary Essentially the recruits for this faction, not much use for them at the moment aside from having side functions, this particular one might eventually progress into a program to allow outsiders to perform functions with the UN. 2) UN Observers (UNOGIE) The 'main' group within the UN faction, most UN members will play on this one. Their main role will be the supervision of truces, providing aid to non-combatants and ensure a checks and balance structure on resolutions. They'll also be the main negotiators and security personnel during meetings between factions, as well as being trusted to act as 'middleman' in certain transactions or to safeguard material and individuals for the criminal court. The main UN force also contains slots for civilian personnel and special positions, mostly in the form of representatives, doctors and medical staff, assistants and other personnel originating from neutral countries. 3) UN Judicial (IJC) The law section of the UN observers group here. They'll handle cases such as serious war criminals, breaches of international treaties and conventions, as well as acting as unbiased neutral court for both inter-faction and internal legal disputes and/or trials. How it'll work is that a faction can hand over certain wanted individuals by request from the UN (though be aware that they are allowed to refuse this). Alternatively the 'opposite' faction or local groups/organizations can capture certain wanted individuals and transfer them to UN custody in order to stand trial. Factions may also make use of the neutrality of the UN to judge their own members or settle major conflicts between faction elements. Virtually all factions can submit requests to prosecute if they are able to provide credible and extensive evidence, a 'wanted individuals' list will eventually be placed much like the tribunals for major conflicts in the past. Both major factions will be asked to assign individuals to conduct the defense of their members should it come to a trial, in the form of legal counsel and regional ambassadors. What should the UN faction be doing? Act as neutral mediator and middleman in negotiations and conflicts Provide aid to non-combatants and victims of war (not armed groups or combatants) Maintain an accurate and credible list of perpetrators or serious war crimes and/or acts against humanity Offer neutral and unbiased trials, tribunals and hearings to reach fair verdicts. Though the UN may carry out their own sentencing if the individual standing trial is in their custody, factions can also request for a verdict to be reached in absentia or solely as legal advice without enforcement. Ensure that truces are upheld by providing security for all parties involved What should the UN faction NOT be doing? Engage in armed conflict with a group or faction, this would render the entire faction redundant as soon as it devolves into open engagements with the ''blue helms''. Issue demands to factions, the UN may request assistance or certain actions to be performed, but they are almost always bound to a request and advice structure unless granted powers to act by the faction in question Assist factions or local insurgents with supplies and other forms of support, the granting of temporary asylum for fugitives with valid reasoning does not fall under this Execute people, in line with the humanitarian aspect we're capping the maximum sentence in extreme cases to life-in-prison in a neutral country until the inevitable tribunals at the end of the war Go around patrolling on their own or provoking/hindering situations with their (armed) presence. UN teams leaving their compound should have a clear goal, and they should always travel in vehicles clearly marked as being neutral/UN. Under no circumstances should UN teams get mixed in combat situations or add to the confusion on the battlefield. Capture their own wanted individuals. This will highly likely spark immediate conflict if UN teams go out to capture their own list of wanted individuals. Instead they should issue requests to release prisoners to UN custody or for factions to arrest and transfer their own. Equipment of the UN? UN teams will be able to equip a carbine and pistol, entirely for self defense and security/guard duties. Under no circumstances should the UN go on the offensive or place themselves in provocative situations. For obvious reasons, the UN is not issued major offensive equipment such as grenades, wide ranges of rifles, mortar support etc. Most of it is confined to personal defense and less-lethal such as flashbangs, smoke grenades and batons. Location and ''base'' of the UN? We've situated the UN in a building on the main city part of the current map. In essence the same base rules apply as they would with the other factions, with the addition that the UN compound serves as 100% neutral grounds to conduct hearings, negotiations etc on. As such, factions can enter without PK risk IF they are invited to do so by the UN faction. How do factions interact with the UN? Special communication channels will be distributed to the relevant officers/higherups in both factions, as well as a general neutral channel being set up for announcements and cross-faction interaction under the supervision of the UN. Factions may request the UN detachment to do any of the following: Oversee truces and exchanges Act as mediator or middleman during negotiations Provide a location for cross-faction meetings on neutral ground Add a specific individual to the UN 'wanted' list should evidence be provided and checked in a hearing Revert / Dispute / Amend resolutions and decisions (including the addition of individuals to a wanted list) in the form of a hearing through the Judicial detachment Offer general legal counsel and non-enforced verdicts on internal matters within a faction, in an entirely advisory role Take POWs into neutral custody pending trial (if sufficient reason is provided) Make requests to the opposite faction to release/transfer personnel into UN custody pending trial or investigation The UN in its current form is generally not permitted to confront or enforce certain actions towards any of the factions. They operate entirely based on providing advice and the cooperation of the factions involved. In the case of war criminals and other wanted individuals standing trial, the UN may request the faction the person belongs to to transfer the individual into UN custody. This may however be refused by said faction. Alternatively, if the opposite faction or local organizations were to detain the individual in question, they may transfer them into UN custody themselves. Factions may dispute accusations and place their own legal representatives during hearings and trials. To this end, both factions are invited to assign legal counsel and defense to the UN compound. How will factions and civilians interact with the UN compound? The neutrality of the UN is guaranteed by virtually every member state, especially the security council. To this extent, the UN compound has a special neutral status, much like an embassy of sorts. Non-UN are not permitted access to the UN compound unless explicitly granted approval or special status, usually in the form of a visitor's pass. Reasons include attending a trial, being present for meetings and negotiations etc. Any non-UN may request (temporary) asylum within the UN compound should they be convinced that there is no option for fair treatment / judging at any of the alternatives. Should they be granted access, they are protected under the UN neutrality for as long as the process takes. Factions can request the release of this individual under various conditions, though in most cases fugitives will be judged under UN supervision. Factions may encircle or monitor the UN compound in an effort to capture the individual(s) should they attempt to leave, but must respect the neutrality of the interior compound at all times. Any form of requests regarding the individual are handled through hearings by the Judicial detachment and the faction affiliates assigned to the compound, such as ambassadors and legal representatives.
