Trial of the Major Fascist Leaders
The Trial of the Major Fascist Leaders was a tribunal before the New European Imperial Constitutional Court. It was the first use of the New European judicial system in its latest set up, and held a lot of expectancy for the hope of New Europe's reputation as a "fair society". After the trial the New European Fascist Party was banned from participating in the national government. Its seats in the Imperial Assembly were given to the New European Nationalist Party. The advocates of Vaughn Bullock and for Johannus von Ikner demanded that they alone be given a trial of appeal. After months of recovery the Emperor approved the trial and it began on 19 April 2010.
The tribunal was opened on 4 December 2009, in the Chicago City Hall in Chicago. The tribunal was presided over by the Honorable Judge Alexis Heinekamp.
