International Human Rights Law & the Voluntary Consent Criterion

Willem van Aardt’s presentation provided an International Human Rights Law (IHRL) perspective, focusing on the informed consent criterion and the egregious violations of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Willem is author of the book COVID-19 LAWLESSNESS and numerous peer-reviewed legal articles relating to the violation of fundamental human rights during the COVID-19 crisis.

On the back of countless assurances by manufacturers, public health agencies, and the World Health Organization (WHO) that the Covid ‘vaccines’ were ‘extremely safe’ and ‘highly effective’, citizens were required to sign informed consent declarations before getting their shots. From the outset many people were concerned about the contents of the mRNA injections, which had not been made public. Since then, the discovery of plasmid DNA contamination has confirmed that these shots should never have been described as safe.

IHRL sees individuals as the main subjects of international law. A fundamental principle of international law is the jus cogens or peremptory norm; this is accepted by the international community as a norm from which no derogation is permitted. Thus, a State Party cannot ignore the obligations imposed by a jus cogens norm, which also limits the ability of the State to craft contradictory legislation.

Medical Experimentation Without Informed Consent

Article 7 of the ICCPR explicitly determines that “no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation,” such as the experimental Covid-19 ‘vaccine’. No derogation may be made from this Article, even in times of a public emergency that threatens the life of the nation. Medical experimentation without free and informed consent is viewed in a class similar to the prohibition of slavery and torture from which no derogation is allowed. Covid-19 vaccine mandates significantly infringed on the individual’s right to medical self-determination in violation of Article 7 of the ICCPR and IHRL jus cogens norms.

The following agreements, which set norms and standards for bioethics, explicitly reference the voluntary consent criterion:

  • The Nuremberg Code 1946
  • The World Medical Association’s Declaration of Helsinki 1948
  • The Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights 2005
  • The World Health Organization’s Guidance for Managing Ethical Issues in Infectious Disease Outbreaks 2016.

Three essential requirements are needed to meet the voluntary consent criterion. In each case, an example is given of how these were not fulfilled:

  • freedom from coercion and pressure, e.g. ‘no jab, no job’
  • informed and educated consent, including the absence of false and misleading information, e.g. the ‘safe and effective’ falsehood
  • a healthy psychological state, e.g. not the mass delusion created by the Covid narrative.

With reference to the third criterion, the term ‘menticide’ has been used to describe the mass delusion of a nation subjected to large-scale government propaganda designed to influence emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and behaviour. There are clear similarities between what occurred in Nazi Germany and the Covid phenomenon. In this case, the transnational pharmaceutical industry, governments, public health authorities, and other political and financial profiteers manipulated the public into getting injected with an experimental Covid-19 injection.

To contend that citizens were able to give ‘informed consent’ to the experimental Covid-19 vaccines (while at the same time not disclosing known plasmid DNA contamination and potential harmful side effects) is preposterous and makes a mockery of medical ethics and the law. There needs to be a substantive judicial reckoning at both national and international levels with all public and private officials who violated International Human Rights Law.

  2. On 19th of February 2021 I wrote a I DO NOT CONSENT Statement. I thanked my GP for my appointment for the coronavirus vaccination then informed them that I would NOT be taking it and listed some reasons why. No further harassment
