The bailiff stepped forward in the courtroom and took a deep breath:

"Today's first case is the trial of Bruno Zamoyski."

Prosecuting lawyer and Minister of Justice Knut Storberget took the floor.

Today we are here to give justice to more people than we may with any other of these trials. Bruno Zamoyski, is a man of legend and infamy. A man responsible for the birth of two Nordlands, both imperialistic, power grabbing, villains on the world stage. Mr. Zamoyski has been dedicated to to the spread of Nordic ideals, the same ideals that destroyed nations, crush societies, and murder cultures across Europe. The entire world needs to be free of this evil man to truly be at peace."

Zamoyski stood, he needed no lawyer for what he was about to say.

"My reputation precedes me...I rather detest the charges of crushing societies and murdering cultures. No...what I did with Herr Martens was not destroy cultures...no...we created a new culture! A great culture! Europe will never be the same after Nordland had ruled...men will strive for our greatness."

He took a sip of water and laughed.

"You know...when Herr Martens and I met on multiple occasions for the formation of Nordland, we sought not destroy, but create. However, with Herr Martens missing, I must take the brunt of the burden that the world sees Nordland as holding."

He sat down and put his hands forward.

"You gonna put the cuffs of me now, or just line me up for the firing squad right here?"

He shed a small tear, thinking of his wife and new born child, it was all over.

The Bailiff stood and said, "No, there will be no firing squad. In this nation at least, the death penalty is reserved for the criminally insane who are incapable of functioning without harming others. Now, you have made no pleading of guilty or innocent, how do you plead?"

OOC: By the way, this would probably be Uber saying this, if he were online, I just want to get these over with

Degan Narris frowned as he sat in the jury box. He didn't believe that the punishment fit the crime. The man had seemed genuinely remorseful for what had occurred under his watch, and seemed to truly believe he was doing something for good. He would keep this in mind for later trials, knowing how harsh the judge could be with a guilty sentence.

Also, he asks for a list of formal charges to be presented for each of the accused, along with a maximum sentence for each so the jury knows what we are looking at when deliberating and can make recommendations to the judge.

Edward Tallinn blinked as the sentence was announced and as Zamoyski was being escorted away. 200 years of manual labor? That seemed too much, in his opinion. He was also surprised that there were virtually no deliberations or defense statements, and that the judge seemed to jump at the chance of exacting punishment at a guilty plea.

"The man pleaded guilty of WAR CRIMES. My judgment was perfectly acceptable. He is lucky he was not shot."

OOC: If a guy IRL gets 150 years for defrauding people, I think I can give someone 200 years for war crimes. :P

OOC: heh, good point...so, who all's on the jury, player-wise?

The judge stood, "With the plea of guilty for his crimes against humanity, I hereby charge Bruno Zamoyski with 200 years of Manual labor."

The Republic of Transvaal condemns this harsh sentence against the so-called 'accused' and demands that Mr. Zamoyski be released to our custody so that we can provide with comfortable retirement for him and his family.

"We do have a question as one of our citizens is serving as a juror. Under what laws or previously existing codex are these individuals being tried? Moreover by what authority are they being called to account. The term "war crime" doesn't really mean much other than the fact that you object to their tactics when there is no previously codified set of standards that the international community demands the nations of the world live up to. While of course the individual pled guilty our inquiry is out of concern for future cases."
