On Barrayar, a person could be declared to be an Imperial Witness if a suitable bargain could be arranged between that person and the prosecuting authorities. In modern (post-Isolation) times this was done very rarely, because the use of fast-penta for testimony made such bargains unnecessary in most cases.

The only person in the Vorkosigan Saga who had successfully been declared an Imperial Witness for a particular case was Byerly Vorrutyer; the bargain was made due to his work as an undercover agent for ImpSec.[1] Tien Vorsoisson believed that he might be able to be declared one as well, but he was unlikely to succeed in bringing that about.[2]
