- "Death Watch is far stronger than we once thought. But we have been training for this. We can stop them. But if we are to combat them effectively, we must have the temerity to stand strong in the name of peace. And if we are to do so, we must reject any Republic assistance. Instead, this government will act. It acts not out of pride, but for safety. Intervention by the Republic will inflame the opposition and this is why our government rejects the help of the Jedi. We must listen to the Duchess Satine. If we do not, we will ultimately cause our defeat."
- ―Jerec, attesting to the strength of the New Mandalorian government
Jerec was a male human who served as a Deputy Minister in the New Mandalorian government of Duchess Satine Kryze. A doctored recording of Jerec's testimony to the Galactic Senate was used to push for the Republic to intervene in Mandalore's struggle with the Death Watch movement. Jerec was then killed in a bombing on Kalevala. However, Duchess Kryze was able to obtain the full version of his testimony from Davu Golec of the Republic Ministry of Intelligence before Golec was killed by the Death Watch. The full testimony was then played before the Senate which vindicated Kryze and stopped the military intervention by the Republic.
