400.13 // The Manning Inquiry ends as Ruun trial due to start immediately


The inquiry into Lord Laa’ken Ruun and potential war crimes committed during the war on Vohai has officially been closed and the report provided to relevant committees for review.

It was announced 398ABY that a trial would take place following the inquiry but it appears the Republic are keen not to stall the process. Announcing the trial is due to start on 400.24ABY.

Rumours coming from the Chief of States office suggest that the finalisation of the deal between The Jedi Order is being delayed by the Order who wish to see the outcome of any trial before signing on the dotted line.

400.07 // BREAKING NEWS: Deal in principle agreed between Republic and Jedi Order

In what diplomats on both sides have dubbed some of most complex negotiations in recent history, Galactic Holonews has received word that a deal in principle has finally been struck between The Jedi Order and the Republic.

It is believed that Chief of State Lammee Ranack is keen to get the formal alliance between the two finalised, and has privately expressed frustration at the Grandmaster Coron Audax delay in signing the agreement.

In response to a question from the Galactic Holonews, Jedi Knight Ensil Stazi, spokesman for the Jedi Order has released the following statement:

The Jedi Order has made it standard practice not to comment on any of the negotiations.Standard practice dictates that any deal would be subject to final approval from the High Council of the Order not just the Grandmaster.

The Galactic News has reached out for clarification of when such a vote would take place, but has yet to receive further comment from the Order.

399.28 // The Galaxy Aligns as the Galaxy remembers the Battle of Yavin.

When you arrange to meet your friends for an early morning caf, you’ll fire messages back and forth, “I’m free on 399.22, 399.30 and 400.03”. The three letters that come after these dates are often forgotten or left out, but we all know that they are ABY – After the Battle of Yavin.

Was there a time before the battle of Yavin? Of course there was, infact the galaxy spans millenia before the Battle of Yavin, so what was the event that was large enough to hit the reset button on the galactic calendar?

Well, you can find out more, by watching the critically acclaimed 10 part docu-drama series coming to Holoflix called ‘BY’.

The galaxy itself seems to be marking the occasion with a natural phenomenon scientists have dubbed ‘The Concentric Suns’. A large portion of the suns, in the known galaxy, will be in perfect symmetry and harmony, the process known as solar dynamo causing them to correlate to one another for a brief temporal window; one lasting merely couple of days. This is expected to lead to what is being described as a once in a lifetime, for most species, spectacular astral event.

What will it look like? No one is quite sure, it’s never happened before, although scientists and astrologers around the galaxy are at fever pitch with excitement.

399.22 // New Poll to shorten social care to the unemployed!

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen of the Republic,

Today the senate has been greeted by a new poll requested by Wayland’s Senator Alorin Treychar, suggesting to cut off funds for unemployed and people in need of care.

“We face an immediate threat of a financial crisis, and the current unrest among the Republican territories have reached a whole new level since the days of the Civil War on Vohai. In order to put an abrupt stop to this disastrous state of affairs, it is in our best interest to focus our financial resources to the law enforcement and military department, enabling us to use force when need be, and we now live in times where this need has become top priority. I, Alorin Treychar, would hereby wish to put up a new poll on decreasing funding to several social facilities. This poll is not to terminate, but to preserve life among those that suffer under the unrelenting force of the brutal extremists that protest against our tenets of freedom and peace.”

A widespread disappointment has reflected from the senate building, with many shouts coming from the liberal and left-wing politicians. Senators of Ryloth, Fondor and Rodia were among those to protest the suggestion of Wayland’s conservative senator, who has surprisingly gained a good portion of the Republican Senate’s vote.

Latest surveys among the population have shown a very drastic and obvious disagreement with the arguments of Senator Treychar.

How will the liberal voice of the people answer for this situation?

This is Ghara Vicano from the Senate Building.

Back to you, Lynda.

398.22 // Stay Updated: News Wrap – Ruun Trial Announced, Prison Chaos, and CoS Embarrassment

 

Today, our top story, former runner for chief of state and senator Laa’ken Ruun is officially to be tried for war crimes and bribery during the Vohai Civil War. Evidence has recently come to light and been brought to leader of the Inquiry, Senator Manning.

“Hopefully with the light of this new evidence, I can finally set the record straight on the involvement of senator Ruun. It is imperative to understand that this trial would not be conducted without the full co-operation of our judicial system, nor without sufficient evidence to support this trial. While a popular figure, no man is above the law.”

What possibly is this new evidence? And how has it taken this long to be appropriated? Hard to say at the moment, but we’ll come back to you later with more news.

And for our second story of the day, rumours circulating around some of the Republic’s top prison’s have come to light as now confirmed as an inside source reports on the poor attempts at rehabilitation of offenders in Republic Space as a huge disparity is between the inner and outer sections of the Republic’s core following with reports of increased drug smuggling occurring within the prisons own walls and increase in violent behaviour. This source also reports multiple prisoners that have been released are being re-arrested for repeated attempts at past crimes they have committed.

Lastly, Chief of State Lammee Ranack faces a humiliating senate walkout after her landslide stock market taxation bill reaches the chamber floor. An organised opposition by the senate’s most ardent free market supporters saw the Chief of State usurped during her allocated speech time by a mass walkout of the senate’s majority. The bill was intended to increase the stock market tax from an effective rate of 0.025% to 0.25%. The Chief of State department has not replied to our requests for a response.
