From the author of a plan to create a Secretary General's Pandemic Board of Inquiry in the form of a Citizen Petition from Stephen Fox

"To thoroughly examine the growing international legal issues resulting from the pandemic: this must be done by a UN Board of Inquiry to be endowed the requisite interrogatory and subpoena powers of the International Court of Justice in The Hague; to determine with absolute accuracy who is responsible for this "predictable accident" as cause of this pandemic; and how it was inadvertently or intentionally leaked out of the lab at the Wuhan Virology Laboratories, which nations and which corporations invested in such research; which nations have stockpiled the vast number of ghastly biological weapons and what other weaponry do those stock piles contain; what are the legal repercussions as to economic restoration in the post pandemic era, and other legal matters that will evolve moving into the future. The authority establish Boards of Inquiry is found in the United Nations Charter, Article 97."
