After returning to the Romulan Empire following her capture by the Federation, Liviana Charvanek was sentenced to exile despite the efforts of her aunt Ael t'Rllaillieu. Because she was also the niece of Emperor Shiarkiek she was exiled rather than being executed.
Following the withdrawal of the Cardassians from Bajor, every member of the Bajoran Cooperative Government was sentenced to exile in the Ilvian Proclamation. Secretary Kubus Oak attempted to return to Bajor in 2370, but was arrested by Chief Odo upon his arrival on Deep Space 9. Kubus was later given sanctuary on Bajor by then Vedek Winn Adami.
