  14. 14. On December 13, 1896…
  15. 15. While in Detention  Rizal released a manifesto that he denounces the revolution and condemned Katipunan for using his name without his permission.
  16. 16. Actual Trial  December 26, 1896  @Hall of Banners of the Cuartel de España  He was accused of 3 crimes: rebellion, sedition, illegal associations.  Penalty: Life imprisonment-death for rebellion and sedition, correctional imprisonment and a fine of 325 to 3250 pesetas for illegal association.
  17. 17. Defense of Rizal  As testified by Pio Valenzuela, Rizal was against rebellion  He had not written a letter addressed to the Katipunan comprising revolutionary elements  Without his knowledge, his name was used by the Katipunan; if he really was guilty, he could have escaped while he was in Singapore  If he was guilty, he should have left the country while in exile; he shouldn't have built a home, bought a parcel of land or established a hospital in Dapitan.  If he was really the leader of the revolution, the revolutionists should have consulted him.  He did not deny that he wrote the by-laws of the La Liga Filipina, but to make things clear, the organization was a civic association, not a revolutionary society.
  18. 18. Defense of Rizal  After the first meeting of La Liga, the association banished because of his exile in Dapitan, thus, did not last long.  If the La Liga was reorganized nine months later, he had no idea about it  If the La Liga had a revolutionary purpose, then Katipunan should not have been organized.  If the Spanish authorities found his letters having bitter atmosphere, it was because in 1890 his family was being persecuted resulting to their dispossession of properties and deportation of all his brothers- in-law.  He lived an exemplary life in Dapitan – the politico-military commanders and missionary priests in the province could attest to that.  If according to witnesses the speech he delivered at Doroteo Ongjunco's house had inspired the revolution, then he want to confront these persons. If he really was for the revolution, then why did the Katipunan sent an unfamiliar emissary to him in Dapitan? It is so because all his friends were aware that he never advocated violence.
  19. 19. December 28, 1896  Polavieja approved the decision of the court-martial and ordered Rizal to be shot at 7:00 o’clock in the morning of December 30 at Bagumbayan Field
