Title 7: Administration of the Law
7-1: The Tiran Prosecutor has the discretion to decide whether criminal charges are brought in Tiran courts. Criminal proceedings are instituted by the filing of a Criminal Charge by the Tiran Prosecutor. That filing must be made with the Court Clerk in the High Court Building.
7-2: An individual suspected of criminal activity may be detained for one hand without the filing of a Criminal Charge. The individual's detainment may be ordered by any member of the Tiran High Council, the Tiran Prosecutor, or any citizen of the warrior caste in good standing. If no Criminal Charge is filed by the end of the fifth day of detainment, the individual must be released from detainment. The Tiran Prosecutor has the discretion to open any investigation he/she sees fit to determine whether criminal charges are appropriate.
7-3: The Tiran Prosecutor has the discretion to open any investigation he/she sees fit to determine whether criminal charges are appropriate.
7-4: For violations of civil law, citizens may bring suit on their on behalf, petition the Tiran Prosecutor to bring suit on their behalf, or request an advocate to bring suit on their behalf. To institute a civil suit, the Petition must be filed with the Court Clerk in the High Court Building and sealed by a Scribe. Within two hands time, the High Magistrate must docket the suit for a scheduling hearing.
7-5: Once the Tiran Prosecutor determines that an investigation should be opened, he/she may direct that an investigation be conducted by an investigator within the Tiran Prosecutor's office. Alternatively, he/she may direct that the investigation be conducted by the Caste of Warriors. How that investigation is conducted is determined by the Commander. However, the Commander must provide the Tiran Prosecutor with written findings of the investigation. The Commander may appoint an investigator from within the Red Caste. Once an investigation is concluded and any trials and appeals exhausted, all investigatory files must be filed for public access with the Court Clerk in the High Court Building.
7-6: City magistrates are the appliers of Tiran law. Their decisions may be appealed to the High Council. The High Council has discretion to hear appeals, or to let the magistrate's decision stand. Any member of the High Council may require that a case be automatically appealed to the High Council following a magistrate's decision. Where a member of the High Council is the subject of a criminal or civil action, the remaining High Council will hear the case and render a resolution.
