History and Legal Basis of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) – and its affiliate, The International Common Law Court of Justice
The ITCCS is a citizen-based "Tribunal of Conscience" with standing under international and natural law. Its legitimacy is established under the international legal principle of a Necessity Act under which citizens can establish a bona fide judicial mechanism rooted in the Common Law.
Founded in the spring of 2010 at a conference of survivors of church torture in Dublin, Ireland, the ITCCS presently comprises organizations in fifteen countries (see list of founding sponsors and affiliates below). It was founded because of the refusal of existing courts and governments to charge and prosecute churches guilty of genocide and crimes against children, and because of the active complicity of these state agencies with such criminal church bodies.
The ITCCS Central Office is in Brussels, Belgium, with affiliate centers in London, Dublin, Rome, New York and Vancouver.
The Acting Field secretary of the ITCCS is Rev. Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div. Its legal advisers include members of the Kuala Lampur Human Rights Tribunal, Andrew Paterson, a common law consultant, members of the American and Canadian Bar Associations, and lawyers with the prestigious Center for Constitutional Rights in New York City.
The two fold purpose of the ITCCS is:
1. To bring to trial those persons and institutions responsible for the exploitation, torture and murder of children, past and present, and
2. To stop these and other criminal actions by churches, corporations and governments.
A complete description of the philosophy and basis of the ITCCS is available here.
In the fall of 2012, in conjunction with lawyers and politicians in Europe and America, the ITCCS established a de jure International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ) to place on trial institutions and their officers responsible for crimes against humanity and children.
Comprised of sworn Citizen Jurors, a panel of legally-trained trial judges, and a Citizen Prosecutor's Office, the ICLCJ has concluded its first case in its docket – in the matter of Genocide in Canada by church and state. Its complete evidence is available here and here.
The verdict of the Court concerning the defendants in this case – who include the Queen of England, the Pontiff of the Church of Rome and the Prime Minister of Canada – will be posted here soon. The enforcement of the final verdict will be placed in the hands of the Court's Sheriff's Office and its force of sworn Common Law Peace Officers.
Upcoming cases in the docket of the ICLCJ will include the complicity of the Vatican and other churches with pharmaceutical companies in crimes against humanity; the historical persecution and religious genocide perpetrated against the Huguenot and other Protestant communities by the Church of Rome; the concealment of Genocide by Canadian church and state; and specific cases of Genocide committed under religious sanction and supervision in Ireland, America and other nations.
The ITCCS is the precursor of a new wave of citizen-based justice aimed at empowering citizens everywhere to defend their liberties, their children, and their lands in the face of unaccountable and destructive corporate forces.
