VINCIGUERRA: ANY ATTACK ON ALDEGAR WILL BE CONSIDERED AS AN ATTACK ON THE SELEYAN UNION AND THEREFORE, AN ATTACK ON VALRUZIA
Nowogard, November 4380

Valruzian Minister for Foreign Affairs Izabella Vinciguerra.

NOWOGARD - Valruzian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Izabela Vinciguerra, has decided to, for the first time, unveil the position of the Republic of Valruzia in the Aldegarian throne crisis, and announced that Valruzia will not tolerate any form of ultimatums on any Member State of the Seleyan Union. Vinciguerra, who is a well-known supporter of the Seleyan integration, said that Aldegar can count for support of the Republic of Valruzia and the Seleyan Union, of which Aldegar is a rightful Member State. Valruzian Minister publically condemned the Hutori for military threats made against Aldegar and announced that together with Ministry of National Defense of the Republic, Ministry for Foreign Affairs has decided to send a joint delegation to Aldegaria in order to express the support and discuss all scenarios, even those involving an active military defense. The crisis in Aldegar has coincided in time with the plans of Nowogard to establish a multinational corps of the Seleyan Union, which would be the formal execution of the Article 7 of the Treaty on the Seleyan Union, which according to the Treaty is not only an economic Union but a defensive one as well. Initially, Nowogard wanted to include only four countries in the Multinational Corps - Seleya North, but in the light of recent events Nowogard might broaden the proposal and propose joining to the MC-SN to the Government in Aldegaria. Vinciguerra also said that the threats of Hutori are truly regrettable and that the decision should lie within hands of the People of Aldegar. Minister Vinciguerra said that she understands the claim of Alexander I to the Aldegarian throne, but said that any form of military attack and threats made against Aldegar, puts Hutori in the hostile position, and that by endangering Aldegar, it forces other Member States of the SU to act.

It is the first time that the Republic of Valruzia officially takes any position in the crisis on the line Aldegaria - Bekenial. But apparently, the military threats made against Aldegar worked as a catalyst and encouraged Nowogard to move forward and defend Aldegar. Valruzia which for the last one and a half decade was the biggest and most active advocate of the Seleyan integration has proposed multiple solutions to secure the Seleyan Union from external threats like this, but due to the little interest from the other Member States, the Union was largely limited to the economic cooperation. This crisis may act as a catalyst and convince the other Member States that in order for the Seleya to be treated seriously it needs to be something more than just an economic union. In her statement, Vinciguerra promised that Aldegar will not be left alone with its struggle and that in any case of any military attack against Aldegar, Valruzia would defend Aldegar as this attack would be considered as an attack against Seleyan Union, therefore as an attack on the Republic of Valruzia. Vinciguerra announced that Valruzia will not stand down on this issue and will use this situation as a chance to show that the Seleyan Union should be treated with respect and unlike "the failed Artanian Union" The Member States of the Seleyan Union can and will defend themselves. According to Vinciguerra, the government of other nations seems to forget that Seleyan Union is a powerful and fully functioning community which next to economic cooperation, also includes the collective self-defense. The aforementioned Article 7 says that the Member States shall establish a collective defensive force in order to defend the Union as a whole, and that is what Vinciguerra is trying to improve. By establishing the Multinational Corps, Valruzia wants to create a rapid response unit in order to protect the Union from external threats.

VALRUZIA PUTS FORWARD THE MULTINATIONAL CORPS PROPOSAL
Nowogard, April 4381

Proposed logo of the Multinational Corps - Seleya North

NOWOGARD - It seems like Nowogard not willing to give up the momentum it gained with Minister's Izabela Vinciguerra bold response to the Hutorian military threats made against Aldegar, now sees it as a perfect opportunity to implement some measures strengthening the Seleyan Union. In a stepped-up process, the Valruzian Ministry for Foreign Affairs has prepared the Convention on the Multinational Corps - Seleya North which would be responsible for protecting the Seleyan Union. Apparently, Valruzia and Lodamun have already come up to an agreement and Lodamun was the first to announce its participation in the project. Basically, what Nowogard is trying to do is to fully implement the Article 7 of the Treaty on Seleyan Union, which says that the Member States will set up a defense force to protect the Union as a whole, to life. With more and more threats to the Seleyan Union, Nowogard wants to establish a collective defense unit which will be able to quickly respond to any threats against Seleyan Union, as well act as a deterrent for its hostiles. Analysts say that the formation will enable the Seleyan Union to influence countries like Likatonia and Saridan which in recent years turned hostile towards the Union. The MC-SN will especially give the Seleyan Union a way to at least try to influence the authorities in Saridan which in recent months have decided to turn Saridan into a rouge-like state with slavery and slave-trade legalized. With numerous reports from Council of Seleya and Gloria Iustitia calling for a quick response to the situation in Saridan, which according to Gloria Iustitia has become the most oppressive state in Seleya, and successively denies Gloria Iustitia and Council of Seleya observers the right to monitor the situation in the country, it is certain that the upcoming months will be deciding whether the Member States will take a larger responsibility on their shoulders.

According to sources connected with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the joint committee of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Ministry of National Defense has agreed to put Hel as the proposed headquarters for the new organization (under the jurisdiction of the Seleyan Union). Multinational Corps of the Seleyan Union would be responsible for monitoring the international situation and be tasked with rapid response to threats made against the Seleyan Union, as well taking part in different international operations. Vinciguerra believes that the recent crisis between Aldegar and Hutori will push other Members of the Seleyan Union to take part in the process and that Seleyan Union will be finally able to effectively defend itself from external threats. As for the numbers, it is not certain how many soldiers and what sort of equipment will be assigned to the Multinational Corps - Seleya North, but it is certain that it will include all three basic branches of the military force: land forces, air force, and the navy. According to sources connected with MOND, Valruzia is ready to assign as much as 8 thousand soldiers to permanent duty within the Corps. Valruzia puts its hopes to increased cooperation with its neighbors, its largest economic partner - the State of Baltusia, Democratic Republic of Lodamun, Federal Union of Gaduridos and the Democratic Republic of Tukarali. Despite the initial plan to only include Valruzia, Lodamun, Baltusia, and Gaduridos in the Corps, Nowogard has decided that more broad solution is necessary and has decided to invite other states mainly Aldegar and Tukarali.

STRZEMBOSZ: OLYMPICS IN NOWOGARD IS A CLOSED PERIOD. ATHLETES WON THEIR MEDALS FAIRLY. MORDUSIA SHOULD FOCUS ON WINTER OLYMPICS WHICH ARE DUE IN 9 YEARS.
Nowogard, June 4381

Image
President of the Valruzian National Olympic Committee Jerzy Strzembosz.

NOWOGARD - President of the Valruzian National Olympic Committee (VNOC) issued an official response to the recent accusation of misconduct in Nowogard Summer Olympics in 4380. Mordusian right-wing politician Frederick Manningham-Buller accused Valruzia of misconduct while organizing the Nowogard Olympics. Manningham-Buller in an emotional statement claims that supposedly Valruzian athletes performed in the events during the Olympics while being under the influence of illegal substances which could affect their results. However Mr. Manningham-Buller did not stop on this single accusation, he claims that Valruzian authorities responsible for the organization of the event have gone so far in their alleged "mischief" that they administered sedative substances to foreign athletes, without their knowledge. President of the VNOC Jerzy Strzembosz immediately dismissed the accusations and admitted that he found out about the situation from the media. Strzembosz criticized Manningham-Buller for his false accusations and said that his words not only undermine the good name of the Valruzian National Olympic Committee which was responsible for preparations and organization of the Nowogard Olympics but also undermine the good name of the Terran Olympic Association - the main organizer of the Olympics.

Strzembosz confirmed that the Olympics in Nowogard featured the toughest standards of anti-doping and that services responsible for monitoring the conduct of the Olympics and checking the athletes for possible doping usage were strengthened and the number of staff monitoring was tripled when compared with the 4360 Summer Olympics in Selucia. Not only were they tripled, but they also underwent large reforms. The 4380 staff for monitoring the conduct of the Olympics was selected mainly by the Terran Olympic Association and out of 250 members of the Olympic Anti-Doping Commission, only 14 were Valruzian (for comparison there were 26 Mordusians in the Commission).

According to Strzembosz, all the athletes underwent strict and thorough tests for the presence of any illegal substances before, during and after the events they participated in, in order to maximize the accuracy of the tests. It was already in 4375 (5 years before the Olympics) when the VNOC demanded from the TOA to set tougher norms of anti-doping, and thanks to VNOC efforts, the Olympic Anti-Doping Community archives the samples (so-called "Sample B" and "C") for 5 years after the Olympics (after that time they are disposed). The VNOC has not confirmed any serious incidents of illegal substances usage by athletes during the Nowogard Olympics. The most serious incident was when one of Trigunian athletes (swimmer Aleksiey Vernetko) was disqualified from a single event after the OADC found that his sample contains significantly increased amount of methadone. It was later revealed that Vernetko has been suffering from pleurisy and has been treating it with a cure containing methadone. No serious incidents of steroids and stimulants usage were detected.

Strzembosz also said that the Nowogard Games were one of the most secure sports events of all time and that thanks to close cooperation with the Terran Olympic Association any chances of misconduct were practically nonexistent. President of the VNOC said that Valruzians are committed to fairness and that there are absolutely no grounds to support the claims that the Games in Nowogard were "tricked" or that any of the judges have been biased. Strzembosz said that it is not a secret that all events are recorded by at least four different cameras equipped with motion sensors, and that every event is monitored by at least 3 judges (all from a different country), and most importantly all the event were broadcasted in TV, all around Terra so that it would be very irresponsible for the judges to willingly commit misconduct while adjudging the performers.

In the end, Strzembosz said that Mordusia and Mordusian politicians should be more focused on the upcoming Winter Olympics in Rechtenburg which are planned for 4390. Rechtenburg was selected as a host city for the Winter Olympics at the same session of the TOA during which Nowogard has been selected to host the Summer Olympics of 4380. Strzembosz points out that a great burden of responsibility lies on Mordusia's shoulders, as organizing the Winter Olympics is relatively more complicated than the organization of Summer Olympics, especially for a country situated in the oceanic and continental climate. Strzembosz said that with only 9 years to go, he doubts that Mordusia will be ready in 100% for the upcoming Olympics.

President of the VNOC said that if in 4385 Rechtenburg will not be ready at least in 50% to host the Winter Olympics, Valruzia will move a motion to change the host city. When asked which city would VNOC support, Strzembosz said that Sebenogorsk in Trigunia would be a suitable place to host the Winter Olympics. Trigunia has one basic advantage over Mordusia in terms of conditions favorable when hosting the Winter Olympics - the climate. Strzemnbosz said that Rechtenburg located in the region under the influence of oceanic climate must face one, very important obstacle - chronic lack of snow, undoubtedly an important element for the Winter Olympics. When asked if the VNOC would support Frederick Manningham-Buller in his race for the TOA's President, Strzembosz said that unfortunately, he does currently see a suitable position for Mr. Buller in the TOA, unless the TOA creates an additional department "The Department of Boorishness and Instigations".

STRZEMBOSZ: POLITICAL CHUTZPAH AGAINST VALRUZIA CONTINUES. IT'S A SHAME THAT TOA TAKES THE SIDE OF PEOPLE LIKE MANNINGHAM-BULLER.
Nowogard, August 4381

Image
President of the VNOC Jerzy Strzembosz (left) with President of the Valruzian Football Association Marek Lechta (right).

NOWOGARD - The Terran Olympic Association has decided to initialize a thorough investigation of the 4380 Nowogard Olympics in order to check whether any of the accusation made by Mordusian right-wing political Frederick Manningham-Buller is true. We remind that Manningham-Buller accused the VNOC of providing the Valruzian athletes with illegal substances in order to improve their results while at the same time administering sedative substances to foreign athletes. Despite the thorough explanation and statement made by President of the Valruzian National Olympic Committee Jerzy Strzembosz, in which he dismissed all of the accusations and criticized Manningham-Buller for using fake news and undocumented data to discredit the VNOC, the Terran Olympic Association has decided to run an investigation in order to check whether the conduct of the 4380 Olympics was indeed correct.

According to VNOC, the fact that the investigation will take place is not a big deal, as Valruzia "has nothing to be ashamed of or nothing to hide", said Strzembosz after the TOA's decision. Strzembosz said that what is hurtful and unjust is the fact that it was a clearly a false statement from a gentleman with a questionable reputation, which triggered the investigation. Strzembosz said that the only comforting news is the fact that Mordusia's readiness will also be a subject of a separate investigation, and Strzembosz announced that it will be the obligation of the VNOC to advocate for moving the 4390 Winter Olympics to Ttigunia. President of the VNOC announced that the Committee has already contacted its Trigunian counterparts and inquired about such possiblity.

The Terran Olympic Association announced that the investigation will be conducted by the Terran Olympic Judicial Board. Strzembosz announced that VNOC will use this possiblity to defend its good name, the good name of Valruzia, as well as the good name of the Olympics overall. In his initial statement, Strzebosz defended the conduct of the 4380 Olympics and pointed out the fact that majority of judges within the Olympic Anti-Doping Commission were not Valruzian and that the 4380 Olympics featured additional checks for the presence of illegal substances. When asked about the TOA dismissing Strzembosz's claim that VNOC demanded tougher anti-doping norms from the TOA, President of the VNOC said that he might have misstated due to emotional state he was in.

Strzembosz said that it is hard to look at someone's life achievement (In one of his interviews Strzembosz said that Olympics in Nowogard are the biggest achievement in his career and that the fact that the conduct of the Olympics has been flawless, it is a great farewell gift for him, as he plans to retire in December) being slated. He apologized for his misstatement but said that this doesn't change the fact that the Olympics in Nowogard featured the toughest anti-doping norms in the history of the Olympic Games. Strzembosz said that he suspects that the fact that Valruzia managed to host the Olympics so well, that for some individuals it was hard to look at and that they have decided to run a negative post-factum campaign. President of the VNOC said that the despite the political chutzpah against Valruzia continues, the VNOC and Strzembosz himself will defend the honor of Valruzia and Valruzian athletes with all their hearts.

Later the same day the President of the VNOC met with the President of the Valruzian Football Association Marek Lechta. Lechta confirmed the Associations' support for the VNOC during its hard times and expressed his belief that VNOC did an outstanding job during the Olympics. Strzembosz thanked for the support and announced that the VNOC strongly supports the Football Association's bid to host the World Cup in Brzansk-Hel city-tandem in 4405. When asked about the TOA assurances that Valruzian footballers have nothing to worry about in terms of their right to participate in the upcoming 4485 World Cup, Lechta thanked the TOA for their words but also said that there was absolutely no doubt about that, especially as the World Cup is managed by institution independent from the TOA - FIFA, and the TOA might have tried to cross its jurisdiction, presumably due to a simple mistake.

VNOC STARTS ITS OWN INVESTIGATION IN ORDER TO PROVE THAT THE CONDUCT OF THE NOWOGARD OLYMPICS WAS FAULTLESS
Nowogard, October 4381

Image
Wilhelmina "Willy" Topoliński has been designated as the chief of the investigative board of the VNOC on Monday.

NOWOGARD - The Valruzian National Olympic Committee has decided to start its own, independent investigation in order to check whether all procedures were kept while conducting the Olympics Games in Nowogard last year, and whether any of the athletes have indeed performed in any of the events during the Games under the influence of any illegal substances (steroids, stimulants) which could have improved the athlete's results in the competitions. The VNOC justified its decision with the statement in which it expressed concerns over the constantly prolonged investigation of the Terran Olympic Association, and said that in order to conduct a thorough, complex investigation a decision has been made to establish an independent Board of Investigation of the VNOC. The VNOC wants the investigators on the board to conduct research on all the gathered athletes' samples within the next five months.

Wilhelmina Topoliński who has been designated as the Chief of the Board of Investigation said that never in the history of the Olympics, was there an investigation on such great scale. Topoliński said that the task of the Board is extremely difficult but not impossible. The Board which exact composition Topoliński published in a special report presented to the VNOC management (over 140 members) will analyze samples taken from all the athletes before, during, and after the events. In total, the Board will have to conduct research on over 74 thousand samples. With five months to go and over 140 members, Topoliński believes that the investigation will be finished on time and an appropriate report will be prepared to be presented in front of the VNOC, and the TOA.

Topoliński said that with every day the TOA is postponing the investigation, the investigative value of each sample is dropping and despite the fact that the TOA's regulations require the samples to be stored for 5 years after the Olympics, without an appropriate description of each sample their value, for such investigation, is dropping every day. Topoliński who personally is a chemist, and serves as the President of the Valruzian Academy of Science and dean of the Institute of Pharmacology at the National Medical University in Nowogard, said that her goal is to prepare a thorough, unbiased report which will prove whether any of the athletes participated in the events during the Olympics under the influence of illegal substances.

Chief of the Board of Investigation said that the investigation will be hard as one of the goals which Topoliński has set by herself is to collect testimonies of as many members of the Olympic Anti-Doping Commission from 4380 Olympics as possible. Topoliński says that the procedures in which the samples were collected, initially analyzed, described and later stored in a crucial issue as this determines whether a specific sample is valid for further tests. VNOC has announced that Mrs. Topoliński has all the trust of the VNOC and all the time she needs in order to prepare the report. President of the VNOC Jerzy Strzembosz said that in order to secure the good name of the VNOC and the good name of Valruzia, the committee has decided to secure up to VPO 4.5 million for the entire investigation. This is a sign that the VNOC treats the issue of accusations about "fixing the Olympics" very seriously.

TOPOLIŃSKI'S BOARD OF INVESTIGATION PRESENTS THE FINAL REPORT ON THE 4380 OLYMPICS
Nowogard, February 4382

Image
Willy Topoliński presenting the report of the Board to the VNOC.

• The final report of the Board of Investigation headed by Wilhelmina Topoliński illustrates a comprehensive set of all minor and major anti-doping violation and all the incidents of illegal substances usage.

• The report highlights that in total 11 incidents of illegal substances usage was discovered during the 4380 Olympics an in all the cases the athletes acknowledged the fact and willingly decided to withdraw from the events.

• The report summarises the 4380 Olympics as a success for anti-doping regulation and points out that no incidents of administering sedatives were recorded.


NOWOGARD - After a little more than five months the Board of Investigation set up by the Valruzian National Olympic Committee has concluded its work and presented a comprehensive report on the correctness of sample's gathering, analyzing, and storing during the Nowogard Olympics last year, as well as on anti-doping regulations violations by athletes during the events. Wilhelmina Topoliński on her way to the VNOC in a brief interview said that the last five months was one of the most difficult times in her career as never in the history of the Olympics and anti-doping regulations, was there an investigation on such a great scale where almost 75 thousand samples had to be double checked and evaluated under the angle of illegal substances usage.

Topoliński said that the Board checked all the 74.594 samples for the presence of 15 most commonly used substances (both stimulants and steroids). The substances selected by the Board were: Androstenedione, Somatotropin, Ephedrine, Cocaine, Testosterone, Creatine, Boldenone, Vicodin, OxyContin, Diuretics, Tamoxifen, Albuterol, Propranolol, Marijuana, Stanozolol. Topoliński, during the presentation of the report in front of the VNOC, said that 11 cases, of illegal substances present in the samples taken from the athletes, were discovered and all the athletes testified to have taken illegal substances and all were disqualified from further events. No other cases were listed in the reports and due to the fact that the investigation covered all the samples stored by the VNOC, a fair assumption can be made that those 11 cases were the only ones during the entire 4380 Olympics in Nowogard.

Topoliński said that the Board of Investigation had also checked the correctness of the procedures in terms of acquisition of the samples, their initial analysis, and storage. Chief of the BOI confirmed that the Board had problems with only 56 samples as there were issues with the concealment and storage of those samples which greatly lowered their investigative value over the course of 6 months after the Olympics, while they were being stored. Topoliński said that the Board managed to get testimonies of all 250 members of the Olympic Anti-Doping Commission from the 4380 Olympics and confirmed that the procedures set by the TOA and VNOC were kept in the vast majority of the cases (apart of 56 samples aforementioned above).

When asked for a brief summary of the report at the final of the meeting with the VNOC, Topoliński said that the Board of Investigation has not discovered any evidence for the misconduct and procedures breach during the 4380 Olympics and said that there are no presumptions for the VNOC to be accused of interfering with the results of the events by administering illegal substances to Valruzian and foreign athletes.

VALRUZIAN ECONOMY BENEFITS FROM THE NOWOGARD'S OLYMPIC HYPE
Nowogard, March 4382

Image
Graph depicting the trends in the Valruzian economy in 4380.

NOWOGARD - With nearly twelve months having passed since the 4380 Nowogard Olympic Games entertaining the whole of Valruzia and millions of people around Terra, the economic benefits are expected to be present and felt in Valruzia for many years to come. According to the recent analysis conducted by the Valruzian Economist, thanks to the Olympic Games in Nowogard, the Valruzian economy has seen a GDP trade and investment boost of a little over 190 billion pesos, which is an outstanding result, especially due to the fact that the total estimated cost of the Games is 91.4 billion pesos.

According to the analysis, the year 4380 was also another record year for the number of foreign tourists visiting Valruzia. More than 39 million people have decided to come to Valruzia, experts say that the Olympics played the significant factor, but also that this may serve as an encouragement for the Valruzian private sector (tourism) to invest more and grow. The Olympics helped to create thousands of new jobs in Valruzia, not only in Nowogard but also in other cities. According to an annual report made by the Sejmiks of the Voivodeships, the Gryfit Lake District has witnessed one of the largest surge of tourists since 4350 with more than 3 million visitors. The hotel industry witnessed the creation of over 17 thousand new hotel rooms which is an outstanding number.

One of the biggest concerns of the Government of Valruzia was whether the Olympic Park would generate profit to become self-sustainable after the Games, due to the fact that the cost of the Olympic Park "House of Peace" in Nowograd was one of the largest investment in such venue in the history of the Olympics, and consumed 73.8 billion pesos, with 49.2 coming from the budget, 21.4 from National Economic Fund and the remaining part from private investors. Right after the Closing Ceremony, a race in order to find a solution to the Olympic Park's future began, and it was decided that the Olympic Village on the east bank of the Libard river would be sold to private investors. In December 4380 the Olympic Village was sold to Valruzian-operating, a Trigunian-based private investor for 17.8 billion pesos, and in January this year, the PGI (name of the company) has decided to turn the Village into a prestigious neighborhood.

The analysis of the Valruzian Economist highlights the fact that the Olympics have acted as a catalyst for the construction of a new airport for the Valruzian capital. For many years it was debated whether the city needed a new airport, with the supporters pointing out that the Ingnanski Airport is closing to its maximum capacity. The Olympics have convinced the city that a new airport will indeed be a good investment for the city. City's new airport serves now as a hub for BaltusiaAir (LOT's subsidiary) with LOT Valrusian Airlines and Tucan Air dominating on the older airport.

The large number of tourists who flocked to Nowogard for the 4380 Olympic Games also helped lift the Valruzian economy. With more than 1.1 million people, reported, who visited the city for the Game, or attended a ticketed event, spent an average VPO 5.450 during their visit, compared to VPO 1.490 by other visitors.

STRZEMBOSZ: VNOC HAS HIGH DOUBTS ABOUT TOA'S IMPARTIALITY. THE INVESTIGATION IS CLOSED AND CONCLUDED. DECISION TO CLOSE THE MORDUSIA INVESTIGATION IS REGRETABLE.
Nowogard, June 4382

Image
President of the VNOC Jerzy Strzembosz.

NOWOGARD - President of the Valruzian National Olympic Committee commented on the decision of the Terran Olympic Association to cease the investigation on Mordusia and the readiness of Rechtenburg to host 4390 Winter Olympics, and to focus on the investigation on 4380 Nowogard Olympics. Earlier this week the TOA announced that the character of the investigation carried out on the 4380 Olympics has been changed to look for evidence for misconduct in the judicial procedures carried out by judges in the Nowogard Olympics. Strzembosz, visibly amused by the TOA's decision, criticized the TOA and told the reporters that never in his career as the President of the VNOC has he seen such great dose of ineptitude and plain incompetence from the TOA. He told the press that the decision of the TOA only confirms his earlier claims that the whole process of the TOA is a political chutzpah against Valruzia and is obviously continued to further besmear the good name of Valruzia and VNOC.

Strzembosz said that the recent practices of the TOA are outrageous and the fact that the investigation on possible misconduct in terms of illegal substances used by athletes hasn't been even started by the TOA (year after the Olympics) along with the fact that now is suddenly shifted to an investigation aimed to check whether Valruzia/VNOC interfered with the judgments of the TOA-appointed judges, only proves that the TOA is, in fact, partial on the issue of investigation. President of the VNOC highlighted the fact that in the time when the goal of the TOA's investigation was to check for anti-doping regulations breaches, the Board of Investigation set up by the VNOC managed to analyze almost 75 thousand samples and prepare a report on the issue (between October '81 and February '82) while the TOA has done nothing. Strzembosz said that for the VNOC the investigation on the Nowogard Olympics is closed and concluded.

Strzembosz also pointed out the fact that the statements of the TOA show the true reasons behind the whole investigation. President of the VNOC criticized the TOA for their intention to "continue (ed. their) investigation until we find something done wrong by Valruzia". Head of the VNOC said that the Committee will be forced to defend itself if the malicious practices of the TOA will extend over a reasonable amount of time and that it will enforce its rights over being groundlessly accused of wrongdoing and for slander. According to Strzembosz the TOA has absolutely ignored the comprehensive report prepared by the VNOC, as much as it ignored the concerns of VNOC about the Rechtenburg readiness for the upcoming Olympics. When asked whether the VNOC will present a motion to move the upcoming Winter Olympics to Trigunia, Strzembosz said that under current circumstances, with the TOA carrying out a questionable investigation and not hearing any public testimonies, the VNOC will be forced to move such a motion. According to the VNOC, Rechtenburg is not a suitable place to host such event as the Winter Olympics.

NOWOGARD - On Tuesday, the General Prosecutor's Office announced that it has issued Valruzian and International Arrest Warrants for a Mordusian citizen Frederick Manningham-Buller under the charges of defamation, disruption of the public order. GPO informed that despite the fact that it decided not to take actions directly after the Olympics as it believed that Mr. Manningham-Buller would apologize for his actions, but due to the VNOC's motion issued to the GPO, the Prosecutor's Office is obliged to take appropriate actions in order to properly execute the laws of Valruzia. Valruzian National Olympic Committee in its motion accused Mr. Manningham-Buller of defamation of the Committee's good name and false accusations which led to damage to the VNOC's reputation.

Interesting is the fact that theoretically, the GPO could initiate the process itself as Manningham-Buller's words undermine the good name of the Republic of Valruzia which under the Valruzian penal code is an offence prosecuted ex officio, but the final decision is up to the General Prosecutor, who has apparently decided that the warrant is not necessary. The situation changed when the VNOC moved a motion against Manningham-Buller to the GPO which in that case is obliged to at least conduct a thorough interrogation to check whether his words constituted a defamation.

The domestic arrest warrant states that whenever Frederick Manningham-Buller will enter the territory of the Republic of Valruzia, appropriate Valruzian authorities will have the right to arrest him and interrogate in order to fulfill the procedures resulting from the private accusation made by the VNOC. But the General Prosecutor's Office has also issued the International Arrest Warrant which means that whenever Mr. Manninhgam-Buller will enter the territory of a state with which Valruzia has a functioning agreement on the IAW (interministerial agreement) law enforcement authorities will be able to arrest Mr. Manningham-Buller and either interrogate him or escort him to Valruzia where he will be detained and interrogated. Under the current penal code of Valruzia, Frederick Manningham-Buller may face a sentence of up to 1.5 year in prison or a fine of up to 900.000 pesos.
