1. Reprimand of Lucius Cornelius Sulla

11:57 am Wednesday March 3, 1999

Lucius Cornelius Sulla, you are being issued this formal reprimand by the Nova Roma Senate for the violation of your Magistrate's Oath:

You have not broken any NR laws and therefore cannot be convicted of a specific violation except the violation of the above oath. You did, deliberately, and without specific permission break-in, electronically, to the Senate's Be-Seen board and did again deliberately (against the warning sign posted thereon), proceeded to read the material contained there. Having accomplished that you then provided the URL to other(s)in Nova Roma to visit and then criticize what they saw there, knowing full well that this URL was a private means for the Senate to work out their problems and solutions in privacy. You then when confronted by a Senator and asked what you were doing lied twice before admitting your actions.

In reading the Magistrates Oath, it is noted that in:

  • "upholding the honor of Nova Roma", you have failed as a liar and electronic burglar;
  • "acting always in the best interest of the people and the Senate of Nova Roma", you have trodden over that part of the oath totally, deliberately and with malice aforethought;
  • "doing Honor to the Gods and Goddesses of Rome in my public dealings", you have dishonored yourself before the Gods and Goddesses of Rome and shown them both disrespect, untruths and contempt;
  • "pursuing the Roman Virtues in my public and Private life", you have failed through your deliberate lies and deceits;
  • "swearing to fulfill the obligations and responsibilities of your elected office" you have violated the trust of those Magistrates elected over you, and have shown to all other Magistrates that you cannot be trusted;
  • "the presence of the Gods and Goddesses of the Roman people" you have disgraced both your office and yourself by your actions which were obviously not in the interests of the Roman Gods or the Roman People.

Mars nos protegis!

On behalf of the Senate,

Consul Lucius Equitius Cincinnatus
