Conceived in the late 3060s, the IRComm, or Internal Reviews Committee, was a group of four esteemed members of the Soviet Federation chosen to mitigate internal disputes. It was officially founded by several members of the organisation, during a lengthy parliamentary session. It was formally created under Ringo of the United Soviet Empire in 3071 and supported by the general membership by way of a referendum.
Although it was independent from the executive and legislative branches of the Soviet government, it was selected by both parties collaboratively, at the discretion of the chair. After its completion, it was endorsed by the executive committee before it was allowed to move ahead with any investigations. The findings of IRComm investigations were final, and any sanctions were adopted without modification. In 3137 the IRComm was dismantled in favour of a new judiary formed under the Soviet Constitution. However, during the Centralem no supreme court was ever founded. It was not until the Provisional Government of the Soviet Federation negotiated this during the late 3270s that a supreme court would be seriously discussed, and it came into practice in 3284 with the start of The League.
Below is a list of the three past IRComms, along with some basic information about their mandates and their adjudicators.
First IRComm (3071 - 3084)
Democratic Republic of Plato - Elected by secret ballot
The first IRComm was designed to deal with the rift between the USSA and Chiawa, notably surrounding the Kaput Incident of 3068, the intra-federation hostile bids, and the subsequent escalation of tensions. For security purposes, information pertaining to the findings and rulings were not released publicly, though the private mandate was circulated in the winter of 3075. In the course of investigations all three parties were found guilty, and each faced moderate penalties.
Second IRComm (3084 - 3125)
Fuso Soviet Empire - Elected by secret ballot
United Autonomous Republics - Elected by secret ballot
The Second IRComm never faced any judicial challenges and thus produced no reports. Its use was threatened by the Socialist Union of Farr against opponent People's Republic of Rezalan, though nothing came of it. During this period talk of reform to the judicial branch threatened the survival of the IRComm.
Third IRComm (3126 - 3137)
Socialist Union of Farr - Elected by secret ballot
United Soviet Empire - Elected by secret ballot
The final IRComm lasted for the last 11 years of the Confederacy. Though not formally used, the IRComm was summonded to investigates espionage claims that were later recanted.
