THE FOLLOWING CHARGES WERE BROUGHT AGAINST THE DEFENDANT;

414.031: The crime of attempting to sow dissent and intentionally stoking violent sentiments towards the Crown, Aulic Government or royal family shall constitute a treasonous offence;

 

THE FOLLOWING IS THE VERDICT BROUGHT BY THE JOVENAARS;

 

Jovenaar Baruch, joined by Gynsburg and Wittenbach; 

The Defendant, Lord Hektor of House Stafyr, is found guilty by unanimous consent on the charges of sedition and defamation, to which the punishment is death by beheading.

 

THE FOLLOWING IS THE RATIONALE FOR THE DECISION FROM THE PRESIDING JOVENAAR;

 

On the charge of Defamation;

 

Jovenaar Baruch delivered the opinion of the court

The defendant, Lord Hektor of House Stafyr, publicly defamed and insulted the integrity of the Lord Marshal, the Aulic Government, and the Haeseni Royal Army on multiple occasions according to the evidence provided by the prosecution. The provided evidence was insurmountable, and the accused openly admitted that he did defame the parties involved and said that he recanted, and indeed felt bad about his statements. This however, does not acquit him from clear guilt, therefore to uphold the law to the fullest extent, this court finds him guilty of defamation.

 

On the charge of Sedition; 

 

Jovenaar Gynsburg delivered the opinion of the court

The defendant, Lord Hektor of House Stafyr, has a particular obligation to the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, bound by oath to the Crown in leal service thereof. According to the Haurul Caezk, it is the obligation of  "Haeseni Peer shall raise a contributive family, active in the pursuit of the Kingdom’s welfare and betterment, whether through military, politics or otherwise" (602.02). The court finds a clear violation of this through sedition. The overwhelming testimony made by people within the Haeseni Royal Army (HRA) have alluded to many occasions where untruthful and inflammatory remarks were made in an attempt to undermine the Crown’s forces as a law enforcement entity. The prosecutorial party provided affidavits and written testimony by sworn commissioned officers of His Majesty’s Army. 

 

By seeking to label, with falsity, that certain members of the HRA were in fact “undead,” this suggestion is a clear indication that the defendant sought to otherize those sworn to the defense of this Canonist kingdom that they were subversive agents abusing their power and harboring unholy entities among their ranks. Since the nature of dealing with so-called “undead” requires combating them with force so as to neutralize their danger to society, Lord Stafyr’s rhetoric suggests his desire to enable citizens of the kingdom to harm soldiers among the HRA so as to quell their “undead” nature. This is pursuant to the attempt to stoke violent sentiments.

 

As a titled peer of the Haeseni nobility, Lord Stafyr is entitled to certain prerogatives afforded to him. The defense sought to demonstrate that Lord Stafyr was simply opining on a scenario where he believed that the HRA was harboring said “undead.” The law and tradition of the kingdom clearly states that the peers can schedule private audiences with the Crown. Moreover, the defense did not suggest that Lord Stafyr exhausted his option to do so, if he clearly believed that there were problems in the HRA.

 

It is so ordered.

Corbin spits to the ground, his head giving a few shakes as he hears of this. “Damn beasts leading a corrupt system, putting a man to death for his own innocent opinion.” The Wicks nose scrunches as he kicks a few rats that got loose from the herd.

The ISA Ensign would read the news letter from in inside of his home and spit down at his feet" The Haensti just killed one of their Count for simply giving an opinion. For a Kingdom that say's they have Freedom of Speech they don't act like it. Their king is like a child vho surrounded himself vith da men and vho vill throv a tantrum if he doesn't get his vay. Praise Godan Her Imperial Majesty kicked them out, they'll tear each other apart before the turn of the century"

The Haensti

"oh my...I do enjoy Orenians attempting to tell us how to run our Kingdom, it appears they're lost without us, living in the headspace rent free." Sir Sigmar Baruch would shrug drinking his Carrion Black as he read over the ruling he took part in writing."

Sir Erik Othaman would read the ruling on the case from within his office inside the Bastille. His eyes glanced over the fate that would befall the defendant. After a moment, he set the letter down and let out a long sigh.

"Niet one should have to die for expressing their beliefs, niet matter how much ANYONE disapproves of them. This is a disgusting show of force and yam shudder to imagine the ramifications of such a decision. To execute a Lord of Haense over an opinion that affected nothing but the pride of a few in power is sad to hear. Yam pray for vy, Lord Stafyr. Yam pray vy, Wick Family."

With that, he grabbed his tankard of Carrion Black and raised it into the air before taking a swig. He'd pause a moment with the Carrion Black in his mouth before spitting it back out onto the ground and setting himself back into his chair.

Sir Rylan Swint old captain of the Emperor's guard shook his head "I messed up in my days, but never did I kill someone for expressing their opinions or thoughts. GOD BLESS the Wicks and all those pressured by Haense."

Sir Erik Othaman looks over his shoulder horrified, seeing Ailred recite the law to him in the middle of his office.

"How did vy get in here!? OUT!"

Viktoriya DeNurem blinked, watching as a man was driven from the Captain's office, a lengthy Legislation parchment in his hand.

"Da faechk t'ey're doing over t'ere?" she mumbled, soon returning to her work.

The once Princess Royal of Haenseti-Ruska, Nataliya, sat in her chair as she watched the court give the assessment for Hektor Stafyr. The young woman then panned to her beloved Aunt Alexandria. "So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause..." she then panned back to the crowd cheering for the innocent man to be condemned.

Amthalion Wick prays for his fallen family member. He thought of a certain song, that seemed pretty accurate in the circumstances.
