The Messer Era War Crimes Trials were a series of trials against high-ranking members of the Messer Era government for crimes against the United Empire of Earth (UEE). They lasted from 2793 to 2795. The trials took place on Earth (Sol III) and were broadcast live by Human news outlets in the system and relayed throughout the UEE. Most officials convicted during these trials were sentenced to life in prison. Many who were found innocent or pardoned of their crimes continued to serve positions in the new UEE government.
