The Instrument of Surrender was document signed by both New Republic Chancellor Mon Mothma and the Galactic Empire's Grand Vizier Mas Amedda following the Battle of Jakku in 5 ABY. The signing took place north of Chandrila's Capital City Hanna City. The Instrument required the defeated Empire to abide by the terms of the Galactic Concordance and to dissolve the Imperial government. Mon Mothma also issued another declaration designating all surviving Imperial officers as war criminals but granting conditional pardons to civilian functionaries including Mas Amedda, provided they complied with the articles of the Galactic Concordance.
