  Show trial - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term show trial describes a type of public trial in which the judicial authorities have already determined the guilt of the defendant: the actual trial has as its only goal to present the accusation and the verdict to the public as an impressive example and as a warning.
Show trials, which often take place under authoritarian régimes, albeit some-times in a democratic country, far more often than not have the purpose of eliminating or suppressing the political opponents of an organization, such as a current government or a church.
Show trials were a cornerstone of Joseph Stalin's regime.

 NIH Guide: ANCILLARY STUDIES IN CONJUNCTION WITH SHOW TRIAL
During the course of the trial, SHOW participants will be carefully assessed for a number of metabolic, behavioral, physiological and pathological characteristics and for changes in these characteristics.
In addition, the SHOW cohort may offer the opportunity for ancillary studies to examine the incidence or progression of obesity-related pathological conditions in populations in which additional study is needed, to identify biomarkers for disease risk, and to investigate relatively rare or understudied obesity-related conditions in this large sample.
SHOW has been undertaken by the NIDDK with support from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the National Institute of Nursing Research, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Office of Research on Women's Health and the Office of Research on Minority Health to address this important public health question.

 Showtime show trial:   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Bugliosi's trial presentation did tend to refer more to what "the critics" had said than to "my opponent," and he tried to discredit Wecht by calling him "the darling of the conspiracy buffs." Opening statements followed a brief introduction by Edwin Newman, including some stock footage.
I suppose that was like a real trial, and it certainly kept the proceedings from dragging, but in many cases this limited the opportunity to judge the demeanor of the witness.
In a real trial, not guilty (unless the rest of the jury was unanimously not guilty, in which case I might have taken the opportunity to hang the jury and get some more facts out the next time around); in a mock trial, based just on what was aired, guilty and conspiracy.

 Rich Lowry on Zacarias Moussaoui on National Review Online
In fact, his trial in Alexandria, Virginia can best be thought of as Patrick Leahy's revenge — the fruit of the Democrats' assault on the idea of military tribunals.
It seems clear that the Moussaoui trial is a kind of reverse show trial, a way for the Bush administration to demonstrate to the Democrats and the op-ed writers that it isn't so dictatorial after all.
Instead, he sits in Alexandria, for a trial that, even if it is handled professionally and efficiently, should be considered a travesty.

 The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Show trial of billionaire has echoes from Russia's past
One result has been this long-running update on the Moscow show trial, one more Russian regime's demonstration, through procedures that look like law, of the power of the state and the will of its leader.
The show trials of the most famous victims, who were accused of planning the murder of Sergei Kirov, a Politburo member and leader of the Leningrad party structure who was assassinated in 1934, launched what became known as the Great Terror.
Political trials ultimately backfired for the czars, professor Wortman said, in part because the accused often upstaged the accuser.

 The Show Trial of Abdullah Ocalan in Turkey What lies behind the behaviour of the PKK leader?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The show trial of Abdullah “Apo” Ocalan, the leader of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK), which began on May 31 in front of a Turkish state security court, is assuming increasingly repulsive and bizarre forms.
Although his lawyers continue to be threatened and harassed, resulting in their absence from the court on the fourth day of the trial, the PKK leader made no attempt to question the legitimacy of the trial.
It is a political trial to enable the Turkish state to wash its hands of the blood shed in its persecution of the Kurds, while at the same time strengthening its apparatus for future struggles with the working class—Kurdish and Turkish.

 The Air Force Academy's Show Trial - The academy's new mascot should be the scapegoat. By Dave Cullen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The painful irony is that the Meester show trial has emerged from a bona fide soul-searching by the Air Force and a sincere effort to re-instill core values.
Meester's show trial isn't likely to commence until the fall, but its germination can be traced back to January, when the academy reacted so feebly to the budding scandal.
In fact, any commander who sent to trial a case in which he or she actually believed the accused was innocent would be engaging in reprehensible conduct.

 A Show Trial and a Show Execution
In addition to objecting at the most fundamental level to the use of the barbaric practice of state-sponsored execution--which is outlawed by the vast majority of the world's nations--Human Rights Watch notes that Hussein was killed before being tried for some of his most well-documented acts of brutality.
The report did not study the appeals process, But the speed with which the tribunal's verdict and sentence were confirmed suggests that the Iraqi Appeals Chamber failed to seriously consider the legal arguments advanced by Hussein's able--if violently harassed--legal team.
The imperative, of course, was this: Saddam Hussein could not receive a fair trial in front of an international tribunal because a fair trial would inevitably reveal the complicity of the USA in his crimes.

 HHMI News: Bird Brains Show How Trial and Error May Contribute to Learning
The systematic trials were possible with the aid of a computer program that could track the bird twitters and trigger stimulations to LMAN at precise moments to elicit measurable effects on a predetermined syllable, song after song.
The brain region showed greater activity and more variable signaling during the undirected song, suggesting that this area is generating the variations of solo song.
Finally, they showed that birds with damage to that region of the brain lost their improvisational ability.

 BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iraq PM 'seeks Saddam show trial'
Salem Chalabi, the former head of the special tribunal set up to conduct the trial, accused Iyad Allawi of planning hasty show trials and executions.
With mountains of paperwork to consider, he said the investigations were a long way from being ready and would certainly not "meet minimum standards of due process".
"Show trials followed by speedy executions may help the interim government politically in the short term but will be counterproductive for the development of democracy and the rule of law in Iraq in the long term," he said.

 The trial against Saddam Hussein is a show trial
Just like the transfer of power, this trial is also a farce from end to end, even though there is being talked about an "indictment" in order to give the show trial in which the accused have been denied access to lawyers just a bit of credibility.
The trial is illegal because it is a result of the illegal war against Iraq that has led to an US-installed puppet regime whose actions lack any form of legitimacy.
And fourthly, it is part of the US and Israeli criminalisation of Arab nationalism of which the Baathist government was a representative, and which the US and Israel want to bury because it, to a certain extent, opposes their interests in the oil-rich region.

The felonies were later dropped, and, on Sept. 22, the trial began at a Taj Mahal federal courthouse in Greenbelt, Maryland, before Federal Judge Alexander Williams, Jr.
The trial continued on Sept. 23, and Boyle was the final witness.
Morlan, for example, said that they do not wish to go to jail, but it was inevitable when Judge Williams, in his summation, failed to address their argument that property, like crematoria or a B-52 bomber, does not have the right to be protected by law.

The most spectacular of the "show trials" was the last, held in March 1938.
The most important defendant at this trial was Nikolai Bukharin, known as the "Heir of Lenin." Following the first "show trial" in 1936, Bukharin accused Stalin of trying to take over the Communist Party to increase his personal power.
In 1936, Stalin put on his first "show trial" featuring "confessions" that we know today were the result of all sorts of intimidation and even torture.

 The Reichstag Fire, 68 years on
The communists accused by the Nazi authorities at the Reichstag Fire Trial in Leipzig were already ruled out in 1933 for obvious reasons: quite apart from the lack of evidence, the suicidal and thus nonsensical nature of such a deed was self-evident, despite Nazi propaganda to the contrary.
And even before the Reichstag Fire Trial in Leipzig, the “Legal Commission of the International Investigation Committee” came to the conclusion that the Nazis had set the fire themselves.
In Chapters 5 to 7, the authors document the proceedings at the so-called Reichstag Fire Trial, which began on September 21, 1933 in Leipzig, and then present the circumstantial evidence for the guilt of the Nazis.

Barghouti is a relative moderate, yet Israeli officials have nevertheless decided to subject him to a show trial--scheduled to begin September 5--in an attempt to discredit the Palestinian resistance.
Now, four months of confinement, torture and interrogation at the hands of Israeli police have increased his standing all the more in the eyes of Palestinians.
A day later, Israeli politicians were humiliated by the news that former South African president and political prisoner Nelson Mandela had agreed to attend the trial as an observer.

In the studio segment, Campbell Brown referred to the Iraqis' pending trial of Saddam Hussein as a "show trial." To hear this term used to describe the trial of a genocidal dictator, complete with his own defense attorney, as a "show trial" was truly infuriating.

 Guardian Unlimited Politics | Comment | A show trial
It's intended to deflect attention from the absolute failure of the occupation to either get the electricity and water back on, still less to subdue the Iraqi resistance - which is giving them a bloody good hiding all over the country.
Insofar as it did make a difference, it probably made the resistance stronger, because people who didn't like Saddam but hated the occupation could safely join the resistance knowing that Saddam was now behind bars and never likely to reappear.
The trial could scarcely cover the invasion of a foreign country by Iraq in which a million people died when we would have to be indicted as co-conspirators.

In 1935, Zinoviev was sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment purportedly for giving his encouragement to the assassins of Sergei Kirov.
Accused (1936) of conspiring to overthrow the government, he was the chief defendant in the first of the trials held by Stalin, which resulted in Zinoviev's execution along with Kamenev and 13 other old Bolsheviks.
In 1988, he was posthumously rehabilitated and the verdict of his show trial was annulled by the Soviet supreme court.

But you must remember that he was still our leader, and an Iraqi, and it is good that he shows that he is not a coward.” Many more Iraqis are too preoccupied with daily survival in the social disaster created by the US invasion to care too much about Hussein’s trial or his fate.
The trial, it continued, “is also about the role some western capitals had in providing the Iraqi regime with the means to wage wars against Iran and Kuwait and use chemical weapons against its own people”.
