Questions About the ITNJ Proclamation, Treaty, and Constitution
I have a question about the wording of the ITNJ documents.
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 in its founding documents has been carefully crafted with the intent that all will know clearly its mission and goal. It is a fact that not all people agree on all things and this is acknowledged and respected by the ITNJ.
Is there 'legalese' (i.e., cryptic legal terms) in the documents of the ITNJ?
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 all people it purports to serve.
Will signing the ITNJ Treaty affect my personal sovereignty?
The ITNJ exists to serve as protectorate of all sovereign beings, empowering everyone to exercise personal sovereignty.
Where are you storing my e-signature?
Your e-signature is stored on our secure servers. We have IT security experts doing their best to protect your data.
After signing the ITNJ Treaty, what is the process for rescinding my ratification should I decide to do so?
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 as soon as possible from our list of signatories.
How may I view the full text of the ITNJ Constitution?
The ITNJ Constitution was published 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. *** NOTE: You may need to adjust browser settings or script blockers for PDFs to download, display and read well.
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 ITNJ was established by Proclamation on 14 February 2015. That date was chosen in memory of St. Valentine, who died on that day defending the natural rights of the people.
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.
May I file a case to be heard by the Tribunal?
The application process to the ITNJ has been suspended. The ITNJ Board of Trustees released a Statement, 14 March 2017, (link takes you to ITNJ.org) in which they clarified why the ITNJ and its supporting organization will be focusing all resources on the ITNJ Judicial Commissions of Inquiry. The first Commission Inquiry is into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse, officially seated in April, 2018, at Westminster Hall, London, UK. On the completion of witness testimonies (ongoing in 2022), subsequent proceedings by the Judicial Commissioners, and release of a Commissioners’ Report slated for 2023, the Board of Trustees decided to also launch a 2nd Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Weaponization of the Biosphere, with its official 2-day seating taking place in Asia, June, 2019. The Board may choose to hold future Commissions of Inquiry, or may choose to re-open the application process to the ITNJ.
What makes this Tribunal International?
Anyone regardless of location is equally invited to align with the ITNJ. Our Committee to Support the ITNJ, which is based in the USA as a non profit charity, includes members from many countries. We welcome all to join us as volunteers.
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 of the soil must be upheld over the rights of corporate fictions whenever the two come into conflict.

How does the ITNJ have 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.
Who enforces decisions of the Tribunal?
Enforcement is the first question most people ask, and the answer is The People. Just as all 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 thousands on the ITNJ Treaty constitute the authority and jurisdiction for enforcement under International Law. The more people who 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 human issues for the benefit of all. This may be accomplished by small groups, communities, nations, or the entire planet.
How does Truth & Reconciliation relate to the ITNJ's mission?
Truth & 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 worldwide, we also envision ubiquitous Truth & Reconciliation hearings. For several hundreds of years, the violence done to People and Planet is so great that it would take thousands of courts (running non-stop for decades!) to prosecute all atrocities. We want the atrocities to stop, and to that end, we focus not on violence and revenge, but on remedy and restitution. Truth & 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 to do what is needed to restore peace and justice. This is the concept of Justice with Mercy. Some 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?
“Lawyers around the world are often members of local bars which are professional associations (nodifferent 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.”
Kind regards, John W.B.
Where is the ITNJ located?
ITNJ headquarters are in London, but well outside of the “City of London”. Note: the city commonly known as London has a population of over 8 million people, covering 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. NO ITNJ office is geographically located within the one-mile-square territory called the “City of London”. The ITNJ has no affiliation with any corporate fictions housed there, nor with owners or stockholders of those for-profit corporations.
Why does your site refer 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.
Some cases may be eventually brought before the Tribunal to expose the entire system of “corporations masquerading as governments” on an international level, peeling away the layers of deceit to reveal the identities of the actors perpetrating these crimes against humanity. By presenting proof of the trail of corruption in an open forum, the prosecutors would 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 create a one-world judicial system like the United Nations?
No. The current system relies on tactics of obfuscation in order to put living men and women of the soil under tacit contracts of perpetual servitude. ITNJ supporters oppose Agenda 21 while advocating sovereignty for all. One may (at any time) remove one’s signature from the Treaty, demonstrating that the ITNJ is legitimized by the sovereignty of the People. Our team consists of ordinary men and women tired of the fraud controlling our lives. We – as supporters – are determined to hold corrupt agents (posing as public officials) accountable to the Rule of Law.
Questions About the Committee to Support the ITNJ
Where is the Committee located?
Core members of the Committee to Support the ITNJ are located around the world, many in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Committee headquarters – established in 2015 – are in the USA, functioning as a non profit charity 501c3 organization.
I want to volunteer but there seems to be no ITNJ Committee in my country.
No matter where you live, you are welcome to volunteer. Meetings are periodically held via Zoom, and we do our best to accommodate everyone’s time zone when scheduling.
Will there be an International Chapter in my country?
Please contact the ITNJ Registrar with a detailed letter of interest. We may have volunteers in your area in-process of joining. NOTE: International Chapter development has been an in-depth process requiring tremendous resources for full implementation.
Is there financial reporting for 2015 inaugural crowdfunding?
A 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 who donated then and continue to donate monthly. See statement of accounting
Do you help run crowdfunding campaigns if I have a court case?
No. We do not have the staff to run crowdfunding campaigns for you.
We ARE here to support with website resources. We suggest that you gather a team of committed volunteers at least four months prior to launching your campaign (which should run for one to two months), and plan to have a team of volunteers working in earnest for the two months leading up to your campaign launch-date. Skills needed include project management, writing/proofreading, blogging, video taping/editing, computer graphics/image editing, networking with alliance partners, list-building, email newsletter publishing, social media, and more networking so that it launches with momentum. This is best done for cases that will affect many people and inspire broad public support. Note: Planning for your crowdfunding campaign should run in parallel with legal preparation for your case because it does work well with a six-month lead time, (so the key people working full-time preparing a legal case should not be the same as the key people working full-time steering your crowdfunding campaign). Good luck to You!
