The Trial of Prefect Han

"A snake with legs is still a snake."
- General Liu Lin

The Federation ruled in favour of the Soviets in the Heilongjiang Incident. Part of this ruling involved arresting the man widely seen as the perpetrator of the incident, Prefect Han. After his arrest, he was quickly transferred to Orleans to face trial by the Supreme Court of the Federation. Here, it was expected he would face trial for his crimes, not the least of which were breaching of sovereignty, conspiracy, negligence and misuse of power. It was expected- not least of which from the Soviets- that this would be a quick and decisive trial, with Han given a stern sentence. Indeed, the Chancellor would soon be informed that Han would probably be found guilty and sentenced to 25 years imprisonment.

But a wrench has been thrown into the proceedings by Prefect Han himself. He has approached the Court and the Federation with an extraordinary claim: allegedly, there is a thick vein of corruption running through the entire Chinese government, from the lowest levels all the way up to the President, involving everything from appropriating tax funds to siphoning away supplies for the military to even participating in the drug and sexual slave trades. Although the magnitude of this corruption is on an unbelievable scale, capable of completely changing the face of Chinese politics, Prefect Han claims to have proof; proof that could put a lot of corrupt mandarins away…

But it's not for free. Han wants a deal. He wants an extraordinarily light sentence and to be given all kinds of luxuries during his brief stay in prison. When, and only when this is granted to him will he make good on the evidence. Naturally, accepting his deal could have consequences among those who would prefer to see him put away for good.

Chosen Option

Accept the Deal

There is no shame in giving up a minnow to catch a marlin. Han's crime is great and his motive self-serving, but if what he says is true, then not acting now could have massive ramifications in the future.
Leniency!? The Soviet Union loses one Satisfaction Mark.
Corruption? If Prefect Han is telling the truth, then the 'Corruption in China' event will fire in Turn 7.

Intel Results

  • Investigations by our agents reveal that Prefect Han is almost certainly telling the truth.
  • Despite his lowly position, Prefect Han has a long and dubious history and he has many connections in China's government.
  • He's also managed to run into confrontations with some people in the government, and quite coincidentally, leaks appear that unveil misdeeds of his opponent.
  • Passive psychaudience also suggests he is not lying.
