The trial of Igor Karkaroff occurred before the Council of Magical Law at some point after Lord Voldemort's first downfall.[1]


Karkaroff was brought from Azkaban to provide names of other supporters of Lord Voldemort in the hope of reducing his sentence. After being brought into the courtroom by two Dementors, Karkaroff was magical chained to a chair and presented the names of several Death Eaters. He mentioned Antonin Dolohov, Evan Rosier, Mulciber, Travers, Augustus Rookwood, and Severus Snape. Dolohov was captured, and Evan Rosier was killed, around the same time as Karakroff's capture in the year before the fall of Voldemort.[2] Travers and Mulciber had been captured and Snape was exonerated, but Bartemius Crouch Senior appeared interested in Rookwood, who worked in the Department of Mysteries.[1]
