    hence

    Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to a political prisoner is a declaration that the imprisonment is illegitimate and hence the regime which carries out such a misrule is illegitimate.

    --------------------------------------

    My question is, in the above sentence, can is illegitimate be omitted to make the line mean the same?

    I remember 'hence+a noun (form)' can constitute a sentence.

    Thank you.

    No, if you were to omit "is illegitimate", the sentence would be meaningless.
