Again Bok narrates from a cameo. Now William I. Montoya, the Víbora-Humana ('human viper') we've met already
Bok: Advogado for Roaz and company was William I. Montoya, who had once worked for Smith & Holder, but departed that company along with half of its employees, very recently.
Montoya: The assault on De Castries' building was a drastic measure undertaken to save a life imperiled, and possibly thousands more lives in the near future.
Two-shot of Diana and Alyss. Diana is looks stressed by her memories, as Alyss lays a reassuring hand on her friend's arm.
Montoya (OP): The record is clear, that young Diana Martelli was kidnapped from a shopping mall owned by de Castries, where she was lured by an employee of Gianturco Guarantia.
Montoya: And she was taken by members of the Républicans Pour La Démocracie to a dark cell where she was tortured and then left hanging by her wrists without food or water for more than two days.
Now we see de Castries and his crew behind Montoya. De Castries shouts angrily.
Montoya: But more to the point, de Castries was working together with RPLD on a plot to circumvent the Oresme shield and allow a hostile military force to enter and capture the city for the Intergalactic Hegemon.
De Castries: That's a lie! You have no evidence for that!
The Arbiters at their bench. Andrews smiles indulgently, Santini looks gruff, Reinhold looks mildly annoyed.
Andrews: Senhor de Castries, I'm afraid we have to insist on an orderly proceeding.
Andrews: So, any further outbursts like that will result in a fine of 1 moebit payable to the bench.
Santini: Or keep going. I'd like to buy a new anysuit.
Reinhold: Yeah, it's been years since I've had a real vacation.
