Rizal's trial
December 26
8 o'clock in the morning, the court-martial of Rizal commenced.
Present at the courtroom were Jose Rizal, the six other officers in uniform (Capt. Rizardo Munoz Arias, Capt. Manuel Reguera, Capt. Santiago Izquierdo Osorio, Capt. Braulio Rodriguez Nunez, Capt Manuel Diaz Escribano, and Capt. fernando Perez Rodriguez), Lt. Taviel de Andrande, Judge Advocate Capt.

The three crimes accused to him were rebellion, sedition and illegal association.
- The penalty for the first two being life imprisonment to death, while the last, correctional imprisonment and a charge of 325 tp 3,250 pasetas.
According to Rizal, there are twelve points to prove his innocence:

1. as testified by Pio Valenzuela, Rizal was against rebellion
2. he had not written a letter addressed to the Katipunan comprising revolutionary elements
3. without his knowledge, his name was used by the Katipunan; if he really was guilty, he could have escaped while he was in Singapore.
4. if he was guilty, he should have left the country while in exile; he shoudn't have built a home, bought a parcel of land or established a hispital in Dapitan.
5. if he was really the leader of the revolution, the revolutionists should have consulted him.
6. he did not deny thet 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.
7. after the first meeting of La Liga Filipina, the association banished because if his exile in Dapitan, thus, did not last long.
8. if the La Liga wa reorganized nine months later, he had no idea about it.
9. if th La Liga had a revplutionary purpose, then Katipunan should not have been organized.
10. 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.
11. he lived an exemplary life in Dapitan- the polotico military commanders and missionary priests in the province could atleast to that.
12. 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 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 advocate violence.
After a short delliberation, he was sentenced to be shot in musketry until death at 7 o'clock in the morning of December 30, 1896 at Bagumbayan.
