Trial date is here.
The court room is situated a few buildings deeper into the compound.
I’m handcuffed, guided by some officers serving the civil court system.
A lawyer was introduced to me earlier.
A man I’ve never seen, supposed to 'protect my rights’.
Ordered by the state: what a joke!
Empty court room.
Fills ever so slowly.
I want this over with.
2 jurors, a typist and the judge appear.
My former boss, the lawyer dude and some officers.
Without delay the case is read, I’m asked whether I understand it all.
“Massive threats against the state.”
“Tried to limit a state authority in its decision power.”
“Severe disobedience of state discipline.”
I’m not asked or involved.
25 minutes reading of protocols.
Jury withdraws for deliberations.
I am dead certain that the sentence is fixed for weeks already.
