Theocracy’s Leadership Found Guilty of Crimes Against Sapience
By Iris Dunnigan
PROGRESS, THEOCRACY OF LIBERTAS – After a week-long trial seventeen top officials of the former Theocracy of Libertas were found guilty of over one hundred charges each. The list of charges include:
- Crimes Against Humanity
- Crimes Against Sapience
- State Sponsored Terrorism
Among those accused was the former leader of the Theocracy, Lord Darcy, as well as his twin brother who was the Minister of Finance for the colony. The prison sentences for these crimes ran at between 5 to 10 years per offense with an average of 70 to 120 cumulative years to be served by each of the condemned. These sentences were part of the first wave of trials of high and middle ranking leaders of the deposed colonial government.
Both Alliance and Citadel officials expressed their support of the process. They also requested the transfer of key officials for trial by their courts. The Provincial Colonial Government has not responded to said request as of the time of the filing of this report.
