The Executive Court of Prešov, also known as Caraffa's slaughter, was a political court which the Neapolitan count and imperial general Antonio Caraffa, founded in 1681 in Prešov to murder and threaten Thököly's followers. The board consisted of 4 imperial soldiers and 8 Hungarian noblemen and citizens. But as one of the judges claimed: each general's votes were limited; everything had to happen according to the general's will. They had to whisper their votes to Caraffa. The non-Hungarian members' votes weighed more, and even the judgements were not made according to the votes.
