“The most corrupt figure in Sol has met his downfall!”
“Breaking news! It’s now confirmed that James had been the behind-the-scenes owner of Transgenerational Group in Cansington. The company has now dissolved, and all of James’ assets have been confiscated.”
“Based on our calculations, he misappropriated funds amounting to 10 trillion dollars.”
News of James’ arrest spread like wildfire. It stunned the entire nation.
James was brought onto the Red Flame army’s private plane.
On the plane, James leaned against his seat, unable to exert a single ounce of strength.
“You win,” he croaked.
“What do you mean, James? As one of the five commanders-in-chief and the Dragon King, you should know better than to violate the law knowingly. As the commander-in-chief of the Red Flame army and the head of the Five Commanders, arresting you is merely performing my duty. Please do not blame me for this!” A mischievous grin crept up on the Emperor’s face.
“Let Thea go… Give her the antidote… She’s innocent.” James pleaded.
However, the Emperor closed his eyes and rested.
James was enraged.
He had long left life and death out of his consideration. The only thing he was concerned about was Thea’s safety.
James was brought to the Capital and imprisoned in an underground prison. This was a prison specifically for high-profile prisoners.
With James’ arrest, the dynamics in Cansington changed drastically.
The Transgenerational Group was dissolved.
The Five Provinces Business Alliance bought back Transgenerational New City with 500 billion dollars, which entered the National Treasury.
In the underground prison of the Capital…
As the prison was underground, it was dark and damp. Moreover, it did not have a single bed. James’ room was a wreck, and an awful smell permeated the air.
James sat on the ground and leaned against the wall. He was extremely fatigued. Even leaning against the wall was not an easy feat for him. And so, he chose to sleep on the ground instead.
Meanwhile, the Emperor was still busy collecting evidence.
In just a day, everything was complete.
On the night James was arrested, the Emperor held another press conference.
He spoke with confidence, “Sol will never allow corruption to run rampant. After receiving the allegations against James, we immediately set up a special task force to investigate the matter. In just a single day, we managed to obtain concrete evidence of his crimes.”
“He will be prosecuted in an open and public trial the next morning. All of his crimes shall be revealed to the public.”
Clap! Clap! Clap!
The Emperor received a round of applause.
“That’s all for the press conference.”
After holding the press conference, the Emperor immediately returned to his mansion. Leaning against his sofa, he was wearing a satisfied look.
Now that James had met his downfall, he could finally be at ease.
At the same time, in the underground prison…
James had woken up from hunger.
As the Gus within his body had been absorbing his nutrients, he was very easily fatigued. Now that he had not eaten in a day, the feeling was unbearable. His stomach kept growling.
With all his strength, he got up and leaned against the wall.
At that moment, sweat beaded on his forehead.
“S-Someone… Please give me something to eat!” he yelled.
However, his voice was frail.
A man was standing in the prison right next to James’. Through the iron door, he watched James intently.
“Hahaha… I never expected to see you here, Black Dragon!”
