Court sketch from R to L: Charlie, Brittany, Alph, Defence Representative for Koppai, PNF-404 native
The trial of the century ended today with a shock verdict of NOT GUILTY for the defendants.
ALPH, 7, BRITTANY, 9, and CHARLIE, 13, were unavailable for comment. The trio were whisked away from the courtroom by armed police following the Jury’s verdict.
A spokesperson for the Defence said: “We’re pleased that the Jury has recognised the baselessness of the charges against my clients. They’re exhausted after the trial and the government of Koppaite intends to allow them their rest.”
Angry protesters gathered outside the courtroom, only dispersing when court officials and armed riot police appealed for calm. Among the placards on display could be seen slogans demanding “Justice for Pikmin”, “Death to the Butchers” and “End Galactic Plundering”.
Chief Prosecutor for the Quadrant, MINIMIS FOOTIS, Duly Appointed Enforcer of the Tyrest Accord, issued a statement: “Koppaite politics led the defendants to PNF-404 and Koppaite politics saved them from the consequences of their actions. The Jury have delivered their verdict and it is no longer my place to criticise the short-sightedness of that or any other statement, argument or decision.”
