It is a lawful body, based on natural rights.
It requires 25 barons in accordance with article 61 of the Magna Carta, dated 1215.
It was agreed by the English barons with king John. It was used as a foundational common law tool by the 13 colonies in America and is still in force today; most recently Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia affirmed the GJ’s supremacy in US vs Williams in 1992.
Its purpose is to stand between the accused and accuser to allow the lawful process to determine a true bill or no bill based on a presentment provided to 25 barons of the common law grand jury.
When a de Jure People’s assembly is unsuccessful with a Petition for Redress of Grievance (PFROG) or other lawful notices, it may refer a presentment to the Grand Jury for further action.
The Grand Jury may or may not take a presentment under consideration depending on the merits of a claim.
An investigation may ensue under the oversight of 4 administrative investigators .
It may find that the facts merit a true bill , in which case it would generate a probable cause or even an indictment to be issued.
The case would then be considered by 12 jurors, and deliberations would be kept secret.
Last, but not least, a Grand Jury has the duty and obligation to regularly audit all functions of government and render a report about its findings.
