This chapter discusses the process of selecting the accused, the selection made, and the charges laid in the Indictment. The discussion of selection covers a number of sub-issues including the legal and political foundations for the categorization and choice of the accused, the actual mechanics of the process, and the reasons for the laying of charges against the specific accused. The chapter also contains an excursus on those not charged, including the emperor, and the reasons for the failure to lay charges. Attention then shifts to the Indictment itself, which contained a byzantine collection of charges. The chapter briefly introduces each of these charges and the defence objections to the Indictment.
