Questions About the ITNJ Proclamation, Mission, Treaty, and Constitution
I have a question about the wording of the foundational documents of the ITNJ, including the Proclamation, Mission, Treaty, and Constitution, that I feel some people might not resonate with or agree with.
The ITNJ has no built-in leanings towards any group, belief system, religion, government, or culture and therefore, cannot speak to what one group vs. another might believe, nor does it assume to know how any living being might interpret its words. The wording on its founding documents has been carefully crafted with the intent that all will know clearly its mission and goal when all material on the ITNJ.org website is taken into consideration as a whole. It is a fact that not all people agree on all things and this is acknowledged and respected by the ITNJ.
Is there deceptive 'legalese' in the foundational documents of the ITNJ, including the Proclamation, Mission, Treaty, and Constitution?
No. The common sense meanings of the words give the accurate interpretation of the intrinsic meaning of the Treaty mandating establishment of the ITNJ. We are not here to further obfuscate the true nature of law but rather to make it accessible to the people it purports to serve.
Am I giving up any of my personal sovereignty by signing the ITNJ Treaty?
The ITNJ exists to serve as protector of all sovereign beings, everywhere, and to empower you in exercising personal sovereignty, not take it away.
Where are you storing my e-signature?
Your e-signature is stored on our secure servers. We have one of the top IT security experts on our team, doing our best to protect your data.
After signing the ITNJ Treaty, what is the process for rescinding my ratification should I decide to do so?
Simply send us a message conveying your desire to rescind your signature ratifying the ITNJ Treaty and we will honor your request by deleting your name from our list of signatories.
When and how can I view the full text of the ITNJ Constitution?
The ITNJ Constitution has been published since 14 February 2015, when the ITNJ was established by Proclamation. Following the Inauguration Events and Ceremonial Seating of 15 June 2015, when the ITNJ Treaty and ITNJ Constitution were signed and sealed into law, the “Witnesses by” pages were also published. The full text of the ITNJ Constitution is published as a pdf document. You may need to adjust your browser settings or script blockers to allow pdf documents to display properly on your computer in order to read or download the ITNJ Constitution.
What is the symbolism of the ITNJ logo?
“The pine cone motif in ITNJ’s logo denotes the pineal gland in homo sapiens. It is the organ within the human brain which connects our mechanical intelligence to our meta~intelligence, ie: our capacity to see outside the box, ergo to step outside the proverbial matrix. It is therefore the anchor point of our consciousness to the heavenly realms.
“The language of law (legalese) has been, and continues to be, a veiled language, by its very design. The (mis)use of words and meanings equates to spellbinding. The ritualised majick that law has been subverted toward has not served humankind, but has contrarily conspired to delude us from our higher expression.
“The ITNJ is breaking these invisible bonds and re-purposing the language of law. It is reclaiming jurisprudence and restoring the foundational axis of Trust and Equity.
“The ‘figure of eight’ symbol on the lateral plane in the ITNJ logo alludes to the cycle of infinity. This denotes an absolutist approach by the ITNJ to pure-truth. Pure-truth is not by degrees, and where it is enshrined will ever serve to anchor the heavens to the causal realm.”

Questions About Operations of the Tribunal
When was the International Tribunal for Natural Justice established?
The International Tribunal for Natural Justice was established on February 14, 2015, in memory of St. Valentine, who died on that day defending the natural rights of the people.
When can I file a case to be heard by the Tribunal?
The ITNJ is currently accepting a limited number of applications while our Case Management System software is in beta-testing phase. Forms and procedures for submitting an application to the ITNJ will be posted on this website on the page Application to the Tribunal when the court is ready to accept all applications.
When did the ITNJ begin hearing cases?
As projected, the ITNJ began hearing cases in late 4th quarter 2015. The first official hearing took place on December 1, 2015, and the second official hearing took place on December 16, 2015.
What makes this Tribunal International?
Anyone regardless of location is equally afforded the recognition and protection of the ITNJ and is equally invited to align with the ITNJ. To date, our International Committee includes people from these countries: Aotearoa (New Zealand), Australia, Canada, Holland, India, Ireland, Lithuania, Norway, Netherlands, Philippines, Scotland, Southern Africa, United Kingdom, and United States. More Chapters and Committees are being set up in additional countries all the time. They will be announced on the website and other venues as they are formally brought into the ITNJ.
Why does the world need another international tribunal?
The ITNJ is here to fill a gap in society left open by the covert commercialization of nearly all justice systems of the world, including the World Court, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and the justice systems of most de facto “governments”. Whereas the courts of the world frequently operate as businesses (much to the deep surprise and horror of many good men and women working within these organizations), the ITNJ has been established to assert that the rights of living men and women must be upheld over the rights of corporate fictions whenever the two come into conflict.
Please watch this introductory video for an overview of why the ITNJ was created. There are more resources on the internet that might answer your questions: the website and Facebook page of the Committee to Support the ITNJ, and the New Earth Institute Academy of Law. The ITNJ.org website is being built as information becomes available to the public. To keep up to date with everything that is happening you can sign up here for the ITNJ Newsletter.
How does the ITNJ have the authority to claim Universal Jurisdiction?
The ITNJ exists outside and above the jurisdiction of any one nation or country by the authority of the People of the World.
The sovereign People of the World are the source of authority. If the People weren’t sovereign, they would not be able to authorize a sovereign government, because you cannot delegate authorities you do not have. The People of any nation or country or territory have the right to delegate their authority to representatives they choose to run their government. Case in point: the government of the United States of America is allegedly founded and maintained by the consent of the governed.
Just as the People can authorize their governments to act on their behalf, the People can authorize their Tribunal, the ITNJ, to act on their behalf, and delegate their sovereign authority to administer Natural Law. By their signatures ratifying the Treaty of the International Tribunal for Natural Justice, the People of the World mandate the establishment of the ITNJ and delegate to the officers of the ITNJ their authority to administer Natural Law for all the People of the World, in all the territory of the World.
Where will enforcement come from? Who will enforce decisions of the International Tribunal for Natural Justice?
Enforcement is the first question most people ask, and the answer is the People. Just as the People of the World are the authority behind this Tribunal, the People of the World are the authority behind enforcing the decisions of this Tribunal. The signatures of millions on the ITNJ Treaty constitute the authority and jurisdiction for enforcement under International Law. The more people that sign the treaty, the more force it will have in law. From there, enforcement is an effort of momentum, building a body of knowledgeable and willing individuals that unify on these global human issues for the benefit of all. This can be taken up by small groups, communities, nations, or the entire planet.
How does Truth and Reconciliation relate to the mission of the ITNJ?
Truth and Reconciliation is a function of the Tribunal that seeks to create a peaceful environment for those who have caused harm to meet with those they have harmed in order to reach a mutual agreement.
Just as we envision ITNJ courtrooms operating all over the world, we also envision Truth and Reconciliation hearings all over the world. Over the last several hundreds of years, the violence and force done to People and Planet is so great that it would take thousands of courts running non-stop for decades to prosecute all the atrocities. We want the atrocities to stop, and to that end, we need to focus not on violence and revenge but on remedy and restitution. Truth and reconciliation programs allow those who were swept up into working for corrupt systems to come forward and ask for amnesty. We offer a blueprint for the People of the World to stop the harms being done in their own communities and do what is needed to restore peace and justice. This is the concept of Justice with Mercy.
Many who have been accessory to violations of human rights were either deceived or coerced into the actions they took, and thus should not be treated the same way as those who consciously chose to commit harm of their own volition.
Why are BAR attorneys involved with the ITNJ? Many people don’t trust them.
“Lawyers around the world are often members of local bars which are professional associations (no
different from other professions such as medicine and so on). In most countries there are requirements to take an oath to act fairly for the client, and some countries require an oath to the sovereign (from which one can be exempted as Americans were in Australia as swearing allegiance to The Queen could prejudice their American citizenship). In my case I took an oath of allegiance to The Queen in Australia and in England and also on Norfolk Island (in fact two oaths, one as a barrister, then later as a magistrate). Then I took a similar oath in Ireland (although no queen as Ireland is a republic). Then in the United States I undertook to obey the laws of the United States and its various states. Not one of these oaths prevented me from acting at all times in the interest of justice for all people nor did it stop me from acting against the Crown or the Government. You may recall the classic case in England where it was determined the Crown could and would be sued (“Let Right be Done”). Apart from being a member of the Norfolk Island Bar, I am also a member of The Victorian Bar, and the International Bar Association as well as the South Pacific Lawyers Association and the European Association of Lawyers. I have been admitted to the Inner Temple (England) and Kings’ Inns (Ireland where there is no king). Not one of these memberships in any way affects my independence and my ability to act fairly and in the interests of justice whether as a barrister-at-law or a judge. The ITNJ is and will be independent in the interests of natural justice for all peoples. We have already had discussions regarding representation before the ITNJ as clearly spelled out in the Constitution. To those who say “they do not trust lawyers and judges” I would ask what remedy they would seek. There are only three ways to change things: politically, you need influence and money and lots of it; revolutionary, you need even more money and lots of people united in the one cause who will act together; legally, you need competent lawyers and honest judges, which is what you will get with the ITNJ.”
Is the ITNJ affiliated with the banking cabal housed in the City of London?
The headquarters of the ITNJ is located in London, but well outside of the “City of London”. For those who don’t know, the city commonly known as London has a population of over 8 million people and covers a total area of 1,572 sq km (607 sq m). In contrast, the area known as the “City of London” is a one-mile square territory which is a sovereign city-state, completely separate from London, UK, similar to Washington DC, which is a ten-mile square sovereign city-state completely separate from the USA. Rest assured, no ITNJ offices are geographically located within the one-mile-square territory called the “City of London” and the ITNJ has no affiliation with the corporate fictions that are housed there, nor with the owners or stockholders of those for-profit corporations.
Why does your website keep referring to “corporations masquerading as governments”?
Most governments have been “captured” and incorporated into or replaced with for-profit corporations. These “captured” governments do not have legitimacy as representational institutions because they are no longer answerable to the people within their territories, but are instead answerable to the stockholders and owners of these private, for-profit corporations. To present these institutions to the people as though they were elected governments is fraud. To continue to hold elections as though the votes of the people had any influence on the operations of these for-profit corporations is fraud. The frauds and crimes committed by the owners and agents of these for-profit corporations posing as governments have reached a critical pitch of destruction. The actions of the agents of these for-profit corporations now constitute crimes against the People of the World, including debt enslavement and war crimes.
We expect some of the first cases to be brought before the Tribunal will expose the entire system of “corporations masquerading as governments” on an international level, peeling away the layers of deceit to reveal the names and identities of the actors perpetrating these crimes against humanity. By presenting proof of the trail of corruption in an open forum, the prosecutors will reveal to the People of the World the evidence they require to see the greater scheme of the Source Documents for what it is. Once this scheme is revealed, the People will have the information they need to revoke consent from the deceitful tacit contracts that have bound them. The only power this scheme has is the power it steals through obfuscation.
Is the ITNJ trying to implement a one-world judicial system as part of the New World Order, along the lines of the United Nations?
Whereas the current system relies on tactics of obfuscation in order to place living men and women under tacit contracts of perpetual servitude (see, for example, today’s 13th Amendment in “the Constitution of the United States”), the ITNJ does no such thing. Supporters of the ITNJ are generally opposed to Agenda 21 and advocate sovereignty for all living men and women.
One may at any time remove one’s signature from the Treaty, thus demonstrating that the ITNJ is legitimized by the sovereignty of the people rather than threatened by it.
The core team who envisioned the ITNJ is made up of ordinary men and women who are tired of the fraud that controls our lives. We are determined to hold deliberately corrupt agents posing as public officials accountable to the Rule of Law.
Questions About the Committee to Support the ITNJ
Where is the Committee to Support the ITNJ located?
The members of the core administrative team of the Committee to Support the ITNJ are located around the world, mostly in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Aotearoa (New Zealand). The International Chapters of the Committee to Support the ITNJ are listed here.
I want to volunteer but there is no International Chapter of the Committee to Support the ITNJ in my country.
No matter where you live, you are welcome to volunteer with either the closest International Chapter or with the core administrative team. Team meetings are held via video conference, and we do our best to accommodate everyone’s time zone and availabilty when scheduling meetings. Please check this page to find the closest International Chapter, or volunteer here to join our core administrative team.
When will there be an International Chapter in my country?
Please contact us to let us know where you are and that you’re interested in joining an International Chapter in your country. We may already have volunteers in your area waiting for others to join together in support of the ITNJ.
Where is the financial reporting for the Spring 2015 crowdfunding campaign published?
The spring 2015 crowdfunding campaign reached its goal of raising funds for the June 14th and June 15th Inauguration Events, including the Ceremonial Seating during which the ITNJ Treaty and Constitution were signed and sealed into law. We are deeply grateful to all those who donated then and who continue to donate each month. Financial reporting through September is posted here.
We need help running a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for our court case.
We can train your volunteers to build a crowdfunding page on our website, hosted on our secure servers, but we do not have the staff to run the crowdfunding campaign for you. We can provide you with links to good training materials. We recommend that if you know you will need to run a crowdfunding campaign, you gather a team of committed volunteers at least four months prior to launching the campaign (which should run for one to two months), and plan to have at least five volunteers working in earnest for two months leading up to your campaign launch date. Skills needed include project management, writing and proofreading, blogging, WordPress, video taping/video editing, computer graphics/image editing, networking with alliance partners, list building, email newsletter publishing, social media, and more writing, writing, writing, and more networking, networking, networking to build the mass of people who are already on board before you launch your campaign, so that your campaign launches with momentum. This is no small task, and is best done for cases that will affect many people and inspire broad public support. Planning for your crowdfunding campaign needs to run in parallel with legal preparation for your case because it really does work best with a six-month lead time.
