Chapter 99



Within two years after the final disposition of any trial a rehearing may be granted by the Committee on Appeals, in its discretion upon a written application to that committee therefor by any party thereto.

1. No rehearing shall be granted except for newly discovered evidence tending to show the accused to be innocent.

2. The Committee on Appeals shall determine the procedure to be followed in rehearing each case, and from the decision rendered in such rehearing there is the right of appeal as in any other trial, or the committee may on its own motion rehear the case and render its decision and report to the Grand Lodge as provided for appeals in Chapter 98.
