Albert leaves Normandy and rushes to Beauchamp's house in Paris.
He demands to know what is going on.
Beauchamp tells him that a man arrived in Paris from Yanina with a bunch of documents that linked Fernand de Morcerf to the Ali Pasha affair.
Because Fernand now works for the government, an investigation and trial was immediately scheduled.
Haydée testified against Fernand, saying that when she was a slave, the Count bought her from a man who had bought her from Fernand Mondego – she has documents to prove this. What's more, the man who killed her father had a scar on his right hand exactly like the one Fernand has on his right hand.
Fernand de Morcerf is found guilty of killing and betraying Ali Pasha.
