Established in 1804, Il Marinaio, headquartered in the beautiful city of Scardino, has been the premier newspaper of Porto Greco ever since its inception. Its intrepid and risky model of not accepting political donations make it the Nation's premier news source, for both our beloved Porto Grecan readers and international ones who wish to see a glimpse of the country through our articles!

BREAKING: 'ERODOCS' REMOVE DIRECTOR OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS

RIZZO, PORTO GRECO. A bombshell report provided by an anonymous source with ties to the mayoral government of one of the nation's premier cities, and also capital of the Terra di Flori region has been released, and has involved the former mayor-turned Director of Foreign Affairs, as well as key figures in the media, in one of the biggest scandals of what has elapsed from this century. Just a few hours after promoting a view of an international, peaceful, equitative and kind Porto Greco onto the international ring, Eros Cavalli, as well as reknown figures like Gesualdo Minnella and others, could face a thorough investigation by the Comitate Federale for charges that range from embezzlement of public funds, witness tampering, among other charges, according to the Director of the Commission, Grecalo Mazzella.

The 'Erodocs', as given to Il Marinaio and other prominent news sources by the source on the condition of anonimity detail an extensive 109-page, 7-year spanning history through mobile phone conversations where the Supreme Councilor (then mayor of Rizzo) states how 'tired he is' of having to put on a 'happy mask' for the sake of 'living nicely', as well some official documents detailing the transfer of money to offshore accounts and secret transactions from these accounts to witnesses involved in a separate investigation earlier last year into the Tempi di Rizzo case. The scandal comes after a recent dip in Cavalli's popularity rate, which plummeted to 27% nationwide and 29% in his native Rizzo; critics point to inherent distrust and perceived artificiality in his mannerisms and character for reasons of this low approval rate.

As a response to the ongoing scandal, the Social Party has cut any ties with Cavalli. The Parliament, following an extraordinary session, has with a three-fifths majority voted to remove him from the post; the Social Party is expected to ascend a replacement for the Reunion tomorrow.

Il Marinaio has reached Cavalli's legal representative for a response, but has not received any reply thus far.

BREAKING: Social Party invokes Article 21 of the Charter; Moscatella to be new Director of Foreign Affairs following nomination

PORTO GRECO. Following the invocation of Article 21 of the 2007 Charter, which estipulates that parties can remove Regional Councilors of their party internally following a majority party vote, Mr. Caesar Moscatella has been removed from his post as a Regional Councilor in the early hours of the morning. However, in what has largely been described as a strategic move, it immediately proceeded to ascend him to the Directorate of Foreign Affairs, thus turning Mr. Moscatella into Porto Greco's head of state until the 2027 general election.

The removal from his post preceded his removal as the leader of the Social Party in a separate but related procedure that took place in the afternoon. Spokesman for the party Lorenzo Limano stated the measure was to address the growing concerns of Moscatella's accumulating influence over the ideologies of the party. Mr. Limano, though, stated he will as of now not be removed from the party overall. 

Following the quick dismissal from the Supreme Council, to nomination of the Directorate of Foreign Affairs, to removal from the leadership of the Social Party, the Laborist Party decided to hold a press conference, in which its leader Mr. Benozzo Barozzi stated that it would consider pursuing the possible unconstitutionality of this bizarre series of events with the Supreme Magistrate.

BREAKING: In 'grizzly' suicide, former Director of Foreign Affairs found dead in his bedroom

PORTO GRECO. As yet another important event in this bizarre week for Porto Greco, former Director of Foreign Affairs, Eros Cavalli was found dead today by authorities in his room in Porto Greco's capital city. Such happening directly succeeds the Erodocs scandal and his subsequent dismissal from office and beginning of an investigation two days ago for charges including embezzlement and witness tampering. On the early hours of today, the anonymous source that leaked the initial Erodocs affair sent a document to Il Marinaio among other newspapers, stating it was from a previously-unknown psychiatrist that processed Mr. Cavalli following a suicidal episode he had in his late teens and concluded that he was a threat to himself. However, according to the source, Mr. Cavalli regularly took the medication that was administered to him until he stopped doing so due to the events that unfolded two days ago, giving way for his untimely demise shortly after. The source also exhorted for the relevant authorities to enter his home. However, the Article 66 of the Charter explicitly prohibits security forces from entering a public official's home unless there is an immediate threat to other people's lives, or otherwise the violation of laws. Since suicide is not illegal in the country, the police was not able to enter fast enough.

The details about his death give apparent credibility to the source's claims and proof that Mr. Cavalli had an unstable psychological background. In the room where he committed suicide, numerous pieces of papers all repeating the word 'Why' and one saying 'I wanted to help' in disorganized, slashy text were found by the examiners after the Magistrate dictated a valid exception for Article 66. The forensic psychiatrist at the scene, in an interview with Il Marinaio, stated this kind of erratic and disorganized behavior was indeed common among people with psychiatric disorders, but stated other details about the suicide were 'highly unorthodox' and 'grizzly'. The autopsy of his body is still ongoing, but concrete details are expected not to be released in the near future, as is common for the deaths of public officials.

The Porto Grecan government reacted in shock. Soon after, the Government mandated a state of mourning for a week, period in which all national and subnational flags will fly at half mast. The Supreme Reunion of Councilors stated 'extreme sadness' over Mr. Cavalli's death, and that 'his contributions to improving the lives of every Porto Grecan whether they agreed with him or not will not be forgotten, as won't his lively and happy demeanor.'
