    Position of the Tarajani Government, in representation of the Empire, in prosecution of Coriolanus Snow, former President of Atenosia

    Greetings, Your Excellencies,
    as representative of the Tarajani Government and the Empire, we are here today to state the position, and its juridical foundation, of our government in its case against Coriolanus Snow.
    we believe it's not necessary to recall the events of the war, since everybody here is well aware of what happened, so we'll go directly to the juridical issues, with your consent.

    Our position is expressed by the following points, which represent the crimes committed by Snow while President of Atenosia:

    1. Unprovoked attack against the Embassies, and the entire diplomatic delegations: This is well explained by itself. Since the beginning of history, diplomatic delegations enjoy a right to safety and immunity while in foreign territory. Coriolanus Snow deliberately attacked our embassy, capturing our delegation as hostages.

    2. Unprovoked seizure of all our citizens in Atenosia: another self-explaining point. All of our citizens in Atenosia where captured, kept hostages and even killed without any reason or fair trial, for no reason.

    3. Use of our citizens as participants to the Hunger Games: everybody would surely agree that the practice of those "Hunger Games" is a pure symbol of barbarism and madness. What is worse, is that Coriolanus Snow ordered the use, as participants to such bloody games, of the captured citizens, innocent people who found themselves fighting for life, killed, tortured and even worse, by other captives, for the sake of their own survival.


    These three points, which, in our opinion, well represent the spectrum of crimes committed by Snow and his regime, are in clear violation of the entire International Law as we know it today.

    Consequently, we submit to this Court the request for execution of death penalty against Snow and his most strict collaborators who aided him in his horrific plans.
    We also submit the request for the complete expropriation of their properties, and their distribution to the countries affected by their actions, in proportion to the damages inflicted to them, in the amount this honourable Court will believe to be sufficient.

    Thank you.

    Defense's Response to NT's Position

    1. We did not attack any embassies or kidnap diplomats.

    2. Your and everyone else's citizens visiting our great nation were neither killed nor kept hostages, they were respected and disregared during their stay.

    3. They came forth and volunteered for the games out of free will.

    Objection you're honor (I've always wanted to say that).

    1. Loyalist forces did attack the embassies, and we can and will provide full video proof contradicts the statements of Snow.

    2. Again, we wish to refute Snow's second claim. We will be calling some of the NZ citizens residing in Atenosia at the time to the stands, and they're statements don't seem to align with those of Snow.

    3. A blatant lie that frankly is quite preposterous. Once more, those we call to the stands would be able to refute these ludicrous claims.

    Objection sustained. The record shall indicate that Atanosian forces did assault neutral embassies.

    The Court will accept the submission of evidence proving that point at this time.

    The Court requests if this will be Mr. Snow's defense and if the prosecution has the evidence.

    Coriolanus Snow: "These are nothing but biased allegations against Panem intended to destabilize the nation because of its 'unique' government system that they do not approve of."

    The Court shall assume that this is the defense's position. The Court now requests whether the Prosecution has finished its point, as if it has we shall move on to cross examination.

    Thank you, Your Honor.

    It is our opinion that there is not a better witness and evidence on the matters discussed in this trial, than the Snow Regime itself.
    In other words, we will present here all the informations released by the Snow Administration, since the decision of Mr. Snow to officially change the political regime of the old Atenosia.

    1. http://esamirforum.forumotion.net/t2p360-esamir-international-news-network: in the ninth post, Atenosia officially declared the forced apprehension, torture and put into slavery of citizens of many countries (the full list is given in the news itself).

    2. http://esamirforum.forumotion.net/t2p375-esamir-international-news-network: in the eight post, there's the evidence of the execution, on live, of foreign citizens.

    3. http://esamirforum.forumotion.net/t2p405-esamir-international-news-network: in the eight news there's the confirmation of the beginning of the Hunger Games with the use of foreign prisoners.

    These three evidences are, in our opinion, sufficient to demonstrate the points of our prosecution, as expressed in our previous statements.
    They provide us with the confirmation of the criminal intents of the Snow Regime, the full execution of the crimes it is accused of, and of all the clear, blatant violations of the International Law we have already stated.

    The Court thanks the Prosecution for it's submission of evidence. We now ask the Defense to submit evidence or its own side.

    As that shall be considered the defense's position, the Court now closes oral arguments and the Justices will now deliberate.

    Due to a request by an Associate Justice, the execution of Coriolanus Snow is temporarily stayed pending a Court of Justice review.

    The Sentence has been, in light of the possilbe violations of recently passed laws that execution would cause, amended to now be life imprisonment in a European prison. Thank you.
