Arthur Weasley:
This is very, very peculiar. It seems that your hearing at the Minstry is to be before the entire Wizengamot.

Harry:
I don't understand, what's the Ministry of Magic got against me?

Moody:
Show him. He'll find out soon enough.

[Kingsley shows Harry a newspaper with the headline "The Boy who Lies?"]

Sirius:
He's been attacking Dumbledore as well. Fudge is using all his power, including his influence at the Daily Prophet, to smear anyone who claims the Dark Lord has returned.

Harry:
Why?

Lupin:
The Minister thinks Dumbledore's after his job.

Harry:
But that's insane. No one in their right mind could believe that Dumbledore--

Lupin:
Exactly the point. Fudge isn't in his right mind. It's been twisted and warped by fear. Now fear makes people do terrible things, Harry. The last time Voldemort gained power he almost destroyed everything we hold most dear. Now he's returned and I'm afraid the Minister will do almost anything to avoid facing that terrifying truth.

Sirius:
We think Voldemort wants to build up his army again. [Everyone turns to face Sirius] Fourteen years ago he had huge numbers at his command, not only witches and wizards but all sorts of dark creatures. He's been recruiting heavily and we've been attempting to do the same. But gathering followers isn't the only thing he's interested in. [Moody lets out a loud cough] We believe Voldemort may be after something else--

Moody:
Sirius--

Sirius:
Something he didn't have last time.

Harry:
You mean, a weapon?

[Sirius opens his mouth to speak]

Mrs. Weasley:
No! That's enough! He's just a boy! You tell him much more and you might as well induct him in the Order straight away.

Harry:
Good, I want to join. If Voldemort's raising an army, then I want to fight.

Amelia Bones:
Please describe the attack. What did they look like?

Mrs. Figg:
Well one of them was very large, and the other rather skinny.

Cornelius Fudge:
Not the boys, the Dementors.

Mrs. Figg:
Alright, right, well um, big. Cloaked. Then everything went cold, as though all the happiness had gone from the world.

Cornelius Fudge:
Now look here, Dementors don't just wander into a Muggle suburb and happen across a wizard, the odds are astronomical.

Dumbledore:
I don't think anyone would believe the Dementors were there by coincidence, Minister.

Umbridge:
Ahem. I'm sure I must have misunderstood you, Professor. Dementors are after all under the control of the Ministry of Magic. So silly of me but it sounded, for a moment, as though you were suggesting that the Ministry had ordered the attack on this boy.

Dumbldore:
That would be disturbing indeed, Madame Under-Secretary, which is why I'm sure the Ministry will be mounting a full-scale inquiry into why the two Dementors were so far away from Azkaban and why they mounted an attack without authorization. Of course, there is someone who might be behind the attack. Cornelius, I implore you to see reason. The evidence the Dark Lord's return is incontrovertible.

Fudge:
He's not back!

Dumbledore:
In the matter of Harry Potter, the law clearly states that magic may be used before Muggles in life-threatening situations.

Cornelius Fudge:
Laws can be changed if necessary, Dumbledore!

Dumbledore:
Clearly, it has become practice to hold a full criminal trial to deal with a simple matter of under-age magic.

Amelia Bones:
Those in favor of conviction?

[Fudge raises his hand followed by some other people including Umbridge]

Amelia Bones:
Those in favor of clearing the accused of all charges?

[Most people raise their hand, including Amelia Bones and Miss. Figg, who actually has no vote in this]

Cornelius Fudge:
[Reluctantly] Cleared of all charges!

Umbridge:
Your previous instruction for this subject has been disturbingly uneven. But you will be pleased to know, from now on you will be following a carefully structured, Ministry-approved course of defensive magic. [Hermione raises her hand] Yes?

Hermione:
There's nothing in here about using defensive spells?

Umbridge:
Using spells? [laughs] Why I can't imagine why you would need to use spells in my classroom.

Ron:
We're not gonna use magic?

Umbridge:
You'll be learning about defensive spells, in a secure risk-free way.

Harry:
Well, what use is that? If we're gonna be attacked, it won't be risk-free.

Umbridge:
Students will raise their hands when they speak in my class. It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient to get you through your examinations, which after all is what school is all about!

Harry:
And how is theory supposed to prepare us for what's out there?

Umbridge:
There is nothing out there, dear. Who would you imagine would want to attack children like yourself?

Harry:
Oh, I don't know, maybe Lord Voldemort?

[Silence]

Umbridge:
Now let me make this quite plain. You have been told that a certain Dark Wizard is at large once again. This... is... a... lie!

Harry:
It's not a lie, I saw him! I fought him!

Umbridge:
Detention, Mr. Potter!

Harry:
So according to you Cedric Diggory dropped dead of his own accord?

Umbridge:
Cedric Diggory's death was a tragic accident.

Harry:
It was murder. Voldemort killed him. You must know this--

Umbridge:
Enough! Enough.
