LEFTERSON PORT, CHARLESTON                                                  LIVE BROADCAST

Good Evening I’m Timothy Sernensen 

Carpathia_Unloading_at_Tilbury_docks_-_g

Today at 7:50, a ship owned by Mercator Trade refuesed to awknoladge any calls from the port administration. Ten miniutes later a Port Police Officer was held at gunpoint and was forced to jump into the icy winter Charlesburg River by a group called Anybyniaet Andirswn. Security Forces were immediately called to the scene, where they surrounded the ship with police vessels and even a Svermark class destroyer was parked in the harbor. So why have the authorities taken this incident so seriously? Well one reason, obviously, is that they are holding most of the crew hostage, and another is that the ship is holding an unspecified amount of gold which was supposed to be sold to an unknown Country in the Mediargic. So far the police has only stated that there are 22 crew members left on the ship, with 8 having escaped earlier via speedboat. It is still unknown wheather they have reached the gold in the hold of the ship. Now I will pass over to our Anderson correspondent, Caroline McGuffin ——— Thanks Tim, Anibyniaet Andirswn is a sepretist Organisation founded in 1988 following the Andersonian Cultural revival. It’s leader Cernwen Schliffengas states that the PyeMcGowian invaders have long underfunded Anderson and have covered up the hate crimes committed against the Andersonian populace. Despite Anderson being the 3rd most funded per capita state, and having one of the lowest hate crime rates in the nation. The story of Andersonian independence starts in 18———Sorry Caroline, but I’m going to have to cut you there, as you can see behind me, 10 hostages have been released and are being slowly transported along the bridge, I’m being told that there is a press conference being held by the police currently, let’s see if we can listen in ——— Good Evening, I am Police Captain John Henry, After an hour of negotiations, we have agreed that a sum of an estimated 1000 oz of gold will be delivered to Stamstad Airport, where an Andersonian plane will deliver it to a separatist encampment. We can assure these separatists that we are not currently tracking the aircraft and the transponder is disabled along with other tracking equipment. Here to my right is Emily Harris, Deputy Director of PyeMcGowian Trade Security. —Thank you Captain Henry, I have recently been on the phone with the Prime Minister and the Director of the PTS, and we are fairly certain that we should recieve the crew members within the next 10 hours following the payment. If the captors aboard the vessel does not comply then we may have no choice but to send some elite forces to rescue the hostages. As I’ve said countless times, paying them is a risky move and has spent a portion of the Department’s budget and as far as I can see, Well — ARM AINDIRSWM!_XXCAMERA-5-4-6STATUS_OFFLINE][][][SEARCHING FOR SIGNALS...SIGNAL SEARCH_FAILED— Oh my god... William what just happened? Ok we are going to cut to an advertisement break.

45 DEAD AFTER ANDERSONIAN ATTACK ON PRESS CONFERENCE

Yesterday at 8 PM the police and PTS (PyeMcGowian Trade Security) held a press conference as a cargo ship was being held hostage for its gold. As they began speaking about the payment to the terrorists, a lone bomber holding what seamed to be camera equipment for PMN Cristineese, shouted ARM ANDIRSWN and detonated his explosives. 45 members of the Police and PTS Command, along with News reporters and maintenance staff were killed in the blast. The identity of the bomber is still unknown to the public. The payment of gold that was supposed to leave Stamstead Airport was cancelled, and later on the marine corps was called to take back the ship. The town of Derdwr, a stronghold for the AA group has been put under martial law, as the residents attempted to take control of the local police station and the domestic airport. The police has advised all citizens of PyeMcGowan and it’s neighbors to stay vigilant, and call 1500-454-221 if you spot anything suspicious.

AURAID TENSIONS GROW

The Theodorian Government has long been at odds with PyeMcGowan and Alenveil over its authoritarian regime, and discrimination against other Auraid peoples. Additionally many remember at the Auraid Summit In 2015, when Former Prime Minister George London Stated that PyeMcGowan and Alenveil were the two great nations of the bay... as the Theodorian leader was sitting behind him, which later escalated into a walkout of the Theodorian delegation to the Auraid Union Building. 

And today the PyeMcGowian Ambassador was arrested for alleged spying for the PRS (PyeMcGowian Regional Security) following the expulsions of 25 Theodorian embassy staff for stealing information, and the attempted murder of Kurt Von Dawson, a Theodorian refugee turned journalist.

So what could this lead to? Many speculators believe that economic or even military intervention will occur, Government officials have been very quiet over the matter, and the Foreign Ministry has refused to answer our questions.

Despite many questioning the beliefs that war may occurr, and most of us believe that it could never happen, the military has deployed 250% more troops, vessels and aircraft along the Theodorian border and the Western Auraid bay. As well as a 2 Billion Auraid Border Defence system implemented in September 2018, which the government said was for immigration purposes, yet still with turret towers and walling.

POLITICAL STATEMENT BROADCAST

LIVE FROM THE PRIME MINISTER’S RESIDENCE

“Goodevening, as many of you may know, the relationship between PyeMcGowan and Theodoria has been quite harsh recently, especially with the recent arrest of the PyeMcGowian Ambassador, Andrew Bernardston, and I can assure his family that we are doing everything in our power to help retrieve him. The Theodorian Government has continually broken Agreements and pacts to further their interests, and rest assured we have taken notice. At 5 o’clock this afternoon 12 other staff from our embassy in Constantus and a local consulate have been arrested by Theodorian authorities over charges only brought out of spite for our legitimate actions. I have no reason to believe that Theodoria would like to have a reasonable relationship with our nation along with our ally Alenveil. 

In September last year, the Auraid Bay Defence System was put into play, scanning our border for any activity. Along with the system we based just under ten thousand military personnel along the border with our fleets not far away. Just before this broadcast began I ordered the 5th Fleet, along with its new PNS Tylluan, to the PyeMcGowian-Theodorian coast, May my words be clear, We will not be afraid of your Army, we shall not give up our freedom, we shall never give in to your ways, Mr Tarkin and Mr Mercie! We are PyeMcGowians and Alenians, we have been here for along time and we shall not let that change!

So, before I leave you, I must thank the leaders of @Alenveil for supporting our cause, along with the thousands of service men and women who safeguard our Future.

May you have a Happy New Year, PyeMcGowanig am Byth.

It is unknown what they talked about but rumor is from our inside source that the topics were on the Commonwealth's stance on Rihan, another on the Commonwealth's stance on socialist nations, and the stance on the Enclave. The government's official stances are unknown but negotiations are ongoing as of the moment with Queen Donalia of the Enclave. Also from our inside source, secret channels apparently have been opened with Bulgenstaz with trade deals seemingly on the horizon! Now to the foreign politics with Tina Ven"
      "Thanks Ted! Today in foreign politics the nation of Rihan is rumored to be working on founding a new alliance! This new alliance has the possibility of dominating world affairs. Meanwhile the communist I mean socialist nations of the world seem to be in social turmoil according to our sources! Also, the Council is working on setting up trade relations with various nations across the world. Back to you Ted!"
      "Thanks Tina! Breaking news! There is currently a food shortage throughout both of the Silver Cities. Food is in high demand, but now due to the food shortage, the fishing industry is booming more than ever. Also, in the works are 5 more destroyers to protect our trade fleet! Also, due to the food shortages, there was the second factory protest of this year. This protest was put down shortly after with the police getting involved. New countries to import food from are needed and The Commonwealth is in an official declaration accepting offers to lower the import cost on food to endorse new industries to go into the food sector!

    • Dead Shffahkian Inmate Found in Solitary Confinement Cell Ignites Controversy Jaïr Taulle, 38, was found dead in a solitary confinement cell in the Éleigne Federal Penitentiary on January the 7th 2019. The death was initially reported as a suicide by the prison faculty. However, the sister of the deceased, Anne Lozé, didn't buy the initial report later filing a request for an investigative committee to look into the matter on January 9th. The Committee for the Investigation of Prisoner Maltreatment in Éleigne Federal Penitentiary returned January 14th with its findings that would go on to shock many Shffahkians. The committee found that Jaïr Taulle had died of dehydration as a result of extreme neglect from the prison staff.   Interviews with staff members reveal that he was left as the only inmate in solitary confinement by a checking error leading to him essentially being forgotten. A guard wishing to remain anonymous said ".... [the] part where solitary confinement is located is actually rarely visited by guards or staff when there's no inmate there." The committee concluded with the finding that a checking error had led to Taulle being reported as absent from solitary confinement when in reality he was still there. The guard in charge of checking was found to not have been actually the one to conduct the procedure. Rather he had left it to another guard which according to the anonymous guard isn't very rare. "The lack of resources and manpower often leads to situations where senior guards allocate their duties to newer officers." The horrific discovery of the actual conditions in Éleigne has galvanized many into action and caused an uproar in many parts of Shffahkia. The locals living near Éleigne have signed a petition to close the facility down. The petition will be looked over by the Mines Générales rehabilitation committee. Yet this isn't the first time the treatment of prisoners has caused uproar in Shffahkia. It isn't even the first time Éleigne has caused such controversy. Colloquially Éleigne is known as Monmor (Mont Mort) for its location and infamous reputation.  Prison reform has long been discussed and advocated for. There has even been a hit movie called "The Blue Inmate"  based on a book of the same name written by Sacha Taôme. The Blue Inmate is a biography telling the story of the writer's own experiences as an inmate in a similar neglected facility in the early 2000s. The most memorable scene from the movie is the so called "yard execution" where a guard outright shoots an uncooperative inmate. "The system became very clear to me at that moment. Guards who are willing to do egregious acts get promoted while the decent leave. This is all in the name of efficiency, to keep the facility productive. The food shortages, overworking inmates and the disregard most are put under make perfect sense when you think of the purpose of the facility: to produce as much as possible with the lowest cost. It all creates this toxic atmosphere where inmates live in a perpetual state of terror fearing for their very survival. To my knowledge, that guard hasn't faced any repercussions for taking the inmate's life to this day." Sacha writes about the occurrence.  Tougher Than Tough When Is It Enough? Enacting prison reform isn't a simple affair. The Federal Senate, the Chamber of Representatives and the Collective of Ministers have no say in prison reform as rehabilitation and facilities related to it are strictly under the control of the Shffahkian Council. The sitting president of the Council, President Rémy, has flat out stopped any attempt at reform. His "tougher-than-tough" rehabilitation policy is mostly credited with the current prison system and its results both good and bad. According to the current system, inmates are classified as either risk inmates or not. The risk classification is given to repeat offenders or inmates charged with especially heinous crimes such as murder or corruption. In practice, this creates two systems, and depending on the system where an inmate is put, it could be the difference between rehabilitation and neglect.  System 1 has been praised for its efficiency and results. First-time offenders often find that prison life in the 1st system resembles everyday life with facilities looking more like campuses. Inmates also have a myriad of employment and education options. The 1st system is first and foremost made to rehabilitate. As a result, it boasts great results such as a low return rate. The 1st system seems and in many ways is radically forgiving. It is focused on the bigger picture, what's best for society. In stark contrast to the 1st system, is the 2nd system where so called risk inmates are sent. Repeated offences, bad behavior and heinous crimes lead to an inmate being branded as a risk. The largest difference between the two systems is that the 2nd system is not designed to rehabilitate its prisoners. Risk inmates are often forced to into physical labor and are offered little in terms of educational opportunities. The 2nd system has a history of being put under international and local scrutiny for its cruel and unusual practices. Inmates that do leave the 2nd system often experience dire physical and psychological medical problems from beatings and psychological torture which are a part of everyday prison life. President Rémy's prison reforms have set a bleak outlook for anyone designated to be a risk since funding has largely been allocated to the 1st system. A 2017 study from the University of Shffahkiaville revealed that 2nd system facilities allocate only a 6th of the funding per prisoner than their 1st system counterparts.  "The lack of funding has led to facilities having to compensate through 'morally grey' activities. These include selling prisoner labor even when the facility in question isn't a labor camp and reselling prisoner's food and other supplies which means prisoners often get food only every other day in the present and that prison cafeterias are often empty. This is because facilities in the 2nd system often have such lacking funding that we have next to nothing left after we consider the pay for the faculty. If a facility wants to have educational courses or anything of the sort, it has to come up with the funding itself." An anonymous warden had to say of the situation. The Senate, Chamber and Collective of Ministers have all passed bills officially requesting for prison reform from the Council, but President Rémy has stood by his reforms arguing that a harsher stance on repeat offenders and heinous criminals deters crime, and that lowered funding leads to the resources being spent on those who still have a chance of rehabilitation. In fact, President Rémy has advocated for even harsher treatment but has been stopped by more moderate members of the Shffahkian Council. With the situation as it is in the Council, prison reform of any kind seems unlikely despite popular demand. 
    • The Aresi Stone is a story I'm writing about the deciphering of the Aresi Stone that could possibly take an Indiana Jones-ish turn. It will involve @Limonaia and @Prymont initially, but the nations can decide to be involved later. How does this sound?
    • Hey Aluxia I can whip up a fairly clear map for you if you want to just give me a rough sketch of what's going on.
    • With a gentle nod at the completion of the summit, he got up from his table. He went and set a timer for 30 minutes on his phone and began to follow those who left to visit the Eisteddfod, ignoring the press following him around completely. He could just feel the headlines begin to be written and generated, "President Tartaglione seen visiting PyeMcGowan Eisteddfod," he imagined. There was still that feeling in the back of his mind about possible listening devices being placed in the conference hall. One reporter with a notepad leaped in front of the president. "Loki Freymarsson, Alenian National Tribune! What has changed about the Chionian and Leverne Island fishing rights? What did you talk about in there?"  President Tartaglione suddenly panicked, Loki had scared him and he almost forgot what he was supposed to say. With a stutter, he spoke, "tariffs on imported foodstuffs are being lowered." Loki squinted at the president and, with a nod, wrote it down on his notepad. "Thank you, Mr. President." Loki ran off and vanished into the crowd. President Tartaglione continued with his day and returned to the Hall of Prosperity cafeteria for lunch.
