High Court of Justice / Re: The Trial of Antonius Kokkinos
« Last post by Elizabeth Plantagenet on Today at 08:50:41 AM »
The Princess rose from where she sat and walked the few paces towards the judge's bench for the second time in one day. She inclined her head towards Justice Lambert in honor of the court and then placed two documents on stands in full view of all present.

"Justice Lambert, this case is a simple one and it aggrieves the prosecution that the accused has shown disdain to the court already by refusing to appear for trial. Earlier this very week, an honorable and longstanding citizen of England went to the county of Gwent at my direction. Upon arrival, Katherine Beaufort chanced upon Antonius Kokkinos who was holding a pickaxe at the location of England's iron mine and appeared to be mining. Katherine has graciously provided the government with portraits and statements testifying to her report."





"As the government of England has verified, Antonius Kokkinos is a citizen of the Eastern Roman Empire. Both His Majesty King Alfred and Lady Nynaeve, the Duchess of Gwent, have confirmed that Antonius did not have permission to mine iron in England.

England's laws state the following:"

Section 2a - Resource Theft - No raw resources can be extracted by foreigners in English lands without permission being granted by the Sovereign or the related Vassal. If found guilty the person will have a jail time of 2 days and a fine of 400 silver coins for each gathering action. All extracted raw resources have to be given back to the Kingdom as compensation. The offense can be combined with the "Section 7 - Attack on Kingdom Security and Prestige" offense in severe cases. [Classification C-Severe crime, target: everyone, prison term: 0-2 days, fine: up to 400sc]

Section 2b - Resource Theft Prevention - Any foreigner equipping a tool suitable for gathering resources is strictly required to un-equip it in crossing English borders. The offense can be combined with the "Section 2a Resource Theft" offense. [Classification A - Administrative offense, target: foreigner people, prison term: 0 days, fine: up to 200sc]

Section 7 - Attack on Kingdom Security and Prestige - Whoever, by means of words, acts, omissions of due acts or in any form of expressions affects the security and peaceful coexistence in the Kingdom in some way or exposes it to external threats or damages its international prestige is considered an Attack on Kingdom Security and Prestige. Individuals found guilty will be punished by imprisonment for up to 3 days and a fine up to 1000 silver. The offense can be combined with the "Section 8 - High Treason" offense in severe cases. [Classification D-Capital Offense, target: everyone, prison term: 0-3 days, fine: up to 1000sc]


"The evidence is clear and the accused has been defiant. Also, I would ask the court to note that Antonius was not in meditation when he was restrained and when this trial began. He was active for some time after and was properly notified of this trial so that he would have a chance to respond. He has chosen to go into meditation afterward and the prosecution contends that Antonius has done this in order to attempt to escape justice. It is the prosecution's contention that there can be no other conclusion but that Antonius Kokkinos knowingly and willfully gathered iron in England against the laws and conventions of England, has subsequently attempted to evade justice, and should be found guilty with the harshest possible penalties."

Inclining her head once more to Justice Lambert, Princess Elizabeth sat and waited to see if the defense would arrive for the next stage.

Since the accused has not responded here within the 24 hours since I wrote them to appear here, I call on the Prosecutor to present the case against the accused.
