NET © Notes

tn That is, objected to my release.

tn Or “to the emperor” (“Caesar” is a title for the Roman emperor).

tn BDAG 533 s.v. κατηγορέω 1 states, “nearly always as legal t.t.: bring charges in court.” L&N 33.427 states for κατηγορέω, “to bring serious charges or accusations against someone, with the possible connotation of a legal or court context – ‘to accuse, to bring charges.’”

tn Or “my own nation.”
