UN Genocide Convention
The Genocide Act gave effect to Article II of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, which defined the most serious of all crimes against humanity as:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Furthermore and most importantly, it also implicitly gave effect to Article IV, which stated that:
Persons committing genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in article III shall be punished, whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals.
In other words, the Genocide Act 1969 enabled the prosecution of any and all Officers of the Crown in the International Criminal Court [ICC] for crimes of genocide, which remained the case for the next 32 years.
This was repealed in 2001... take that for what it is... the UK gov is a corrupt bunch of warmongers. Who WILL kill their own people without a second thought.
