POLICY AND HCOB ALTERATIONS HIGH CRIME

  Recently, during the reorganization of WW, it came to light that in some Continental orgs EXEC SECS and SECS had on occasion actually ordered that certain Pol Ltrs and HCOBs were not to be followed.

  This order is an illegal order and any staff following it is guilty of executing an illegal order.

  Any executive issuing such an order shall hereafter be considered as committing a high crime which on proof beyond reasonable doubt constitutes a HIGH CRIME and can carry the assignment of the Condition of TREASON for both the person issuing the order and the person who receives and executes it.

  All such instances MUST be reported at once to the International Ethics Officer at WW.

  Failure to report such an order to the Int E/O when one knows of it carries with it the assignment of a Condition of Liability.

  Lines for the amendment of Policy already exist as per other Pol Ltr and until an amendment is legally and completely passed the old policy must be followed.

HCOBs cannot be amended.
