A group of aliens follows Jadzia Dax and then overpower her. They try to take her of the ship and commander Sisko is only barely able to stop the ship from flying off. Their leader introduces himself as Ilon Tandro from Klaestron IV. He has a warrant for Jadzia, as Curzon Dax is accused of murdering his father, a famous general, thirty years ago and of treason. While Sisko tries to stall her extradition by calling in a Bajoran juror, Dax seems not even willing to defend herself. Sisko tries to convince the judge Curzon and Jadzia are not the same person and sends Odo over to Klaestron IV to investigate. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

The hearing as a means to delay the extradition of Jadzia Dax in order to find evidence for her defense would be unnecessary. Even if the Klaestron IV representative was correct that they could conduct a "unilateral" extradition, the assault on Bashir would provide Sisko the right to hold their entire team for trial rendering moot the need for the hearing since they could not transport Dax while in custody for assault.

She Walks These Hills in a Long Black Veil
24 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In the episode, Dax is pursued and captured by three agents. She/He is to be extradited to a planet where a war occurred. Dax is accused of treason and murder. But Dax refuses to tell anything about the events, choosing rather to go to her death than reveal details. These events are on board the station and soon a hearing ensues. But Sisco is getting no cooperation from his friend and client. Meanwhile, Odo goes to another planet and digs up valuable information. It's kind of the eternal triangle.
