Text Article Thirteen – Martial Law Should severe problems be caused on a planet, in a system or sector, Martial Law may be declared by the sector Moff/Grand Moff, or the Emperor. Martial law allows the military to take over law enforcement, along with the Imperial Security Bureau. During martial law, citizens may be arrested and held without trial, and sentients caught partaking in a criminal act are liable to be terminated upon sight. The Moff/Grand Moff may declare martial law over any of the planets/systems in his sector, should he see fit. A sector-wide martial law may be put into place, should the need arise. Martial law within the Moff/Grand Moff’s sector may be declared for any reason. The Emperor may declare martial law over any planet within the Empire, for any reason. An Galaxy-wide martial law may be declared, should the Imperial Government feel it to be necessary.
Article Fourteen – Maintenance of Imperial Law The Galactic Empire reserves the right to alter, add, remove and otherwise edit these laws as it sees fit. Notice may not be given.
