Roman Republic vs. Enea Piccolomini

I don't like this court hall. There's strange letters above the entrance that I don't understand and it smells like donkey's pish in here. But my dungeon is lacking a smell of rotten flesh so there it goes:

<Duncan unfolds a small blood stained and old scroll and reads out>

I, Guard Captain of Rome - Duncan Hamilton, start this trial in the matter of Rome Republic vs Enea Piccolomini. The various roles for this Court Case have been assigned by me and will be as follows:

Magistrate: George Killian
Prosecution: Duncan Hamilton
Defendant: Enea Piccolomini

The Defendant may assign his own Defense Attorney or he may act as his own Defense for this case.

The Prosecution may now proceed with this Court Case by reading the charge and presenting it’s evidence…

Blah, blah blah ... now get on with it and send that rat to my torture chamber!

Muahahahahaha! haha! haaaaaaa!

The budget is tight and we can't afford famous Balliot & Partners so I will lead the prosecution. That's even better cause all those fancy words were giving me a headache.

Yet another smelly rat from Siena decided to sneak into my city. This will not happen on my watch. When this trial is over he will regret the day he was born. Muahahaha!

The defendant is accused of breaking Statue 6 of Roman Law:

'I'm getting better with this' thought Duncan and went for a pish in the corner of the court hall :)

Due to the age of Enea Piccolomini (OOC 8 days at the time of his detainment) and the problems recently with getting into the court house (OOC Forum was down) I have decided to let the accused off with just a warning.

Please be away of the laws for ever country you enter. You can find the laws posted at the court house (OOC In game or http://rpforum.medieval-europe.eu/index.php/board,717.0.html ). Please be aware though that any further infractions will be  punished to the full extent of the law.

Case dismissed.
