FR: He maintained his innocence - temps

Hi! I'm translating a sentence for my French exam and am confused on whether to pick the imparfait or the passé simple. The sentence is:

'He maintained his innocence throughout the trial'.

I put: Il proclama son innocence tout au long du procès

This was with the reasoning that it concerns an event with a clear start and finish.

Is 'proclama' right? or should it be 'proclamait'?

merci
G
