Court-martial of Lieutenant-Colonel Martin De Clifford(IC)

Postby Ideal Britain » Mon Aug 10, 2020 12:15 pm

Lieutenant-Colonel Martin De Clifford of the 2nd Battalion, Lancashire Regiment, is on trial for manslaughter for his role in the Newcastle Incident where he ordered his troops to fire into a crowd of protesters, some of whom were obstructing the police.
The trial is a British court-martial but Northumbrian citizens have been invited to give evidence against him.
He is defended by Major (retired) Ahmed Ali Khan, LLB (of the Inner Temple), a barrister specialising in court-martial cases and former Army Legal Officer.
The prosecutor is Major (Retired) Arthur MacDonald, LLB of Lincolns Inn, employed by the Service Prosecutions Authority.

He swears an oath on the Bible, because he is a Christian. (OOC: what type of Christian is intentionally unspecified because I haven't figured out that part of Northumbria yet)

The prosecutor asks him “
“What happened during the Newcastle incident?”
Confident that he would describe the Colonel ordering his troops to break military regulations and civilians dying as a result.

“Which person or organisation is your employer?” He asked

“Objection” says Arthur MacDonald

“It’s to determine bias” says Ahmed Ali Khan

“Objection overruled, the witness will answer” said the Judge-Advocate,
This means the witness will be required to answer the question.

“The defence would like to call a character witness,
Major-General Haile Selassie X” says Ahmed Ali Khan
“Proceed” said the Judge-Advocate.

Being a Rastafari, Major-General X swears on the Bible?
Before saying
“I’ve known Colonel Martin De Clifford since he was a Major 10 years ago,
He is a courageous, humane and honest military officer. He always treated people with dignity whether Irish, Chechen and Congolese civilians, his own Northumbrian troops or even captured enemies.”
