Empress Mary III Formally Takes the Throne

Her Imperial and Most Excellent Royal Majesty Mary III, 3rd Sovereign of the Imperial Commonwealth

After four years of uncertainty Empress Mary III has been officially coronated at the Gold Lion Palace in Bekenial as the third Sovereign of the Imperial Commonwealth and fourth Monarch of Hutori. Her Imperial Majesty's coronation was held up because of an going Pro-Republican parliamentary blockade that occurred in Parliament lead by the now de-funct USPH and NLP.

Her Imperial Majesty was later officially confirmed as High Chieftainess and Clan Mother of the Mashacara by the Mashacara Tribes, a rare honour; while every Monarch has been honoured as High Chieftain the title of Clan Mother is normally reserved for Clan Matriarchs, showing the supreme high regards the Mashacara hold for Mary specifically, following her years of advocacy and work she did with the Mashacara as Crown Princess.

The Empress will now depart for the rest of the Commonwealth nations to be confirmed as Sovereign in their own local ceremonies, with trips to Luthori, Mordusia, Alduria and Klavia confirmed already. The Lord Chamberlain of the House has also confirmed the Empress and her family will make stops in Vanuku, Kazullia and Hulstria.

The trip to Vanuku is to see her cousin Juhn X, who has Protector of the Jelbic People and King Vanuku, must affirm the Empress as a Princess of Vanuku and Duchess of Stormkaap, and pay homage to her Jelbic ancestry; her great grandfather was Prince Pawl, the son of King Temrkai. The trip to Kazullia is to see her mother in law Queen Alexandra with her husband, Kazullian Crown Prince Avrid and her son, Crown Prince William. The final trip to Hulstria is to pay her respects to the new Kaiser, and to foster better relations between the Houses of Steuart-Carmichael and Rothingren-Traugott-Okatori, the heirs to the western and eastern branches of the House of Rothingren-Traugott.

Hutori to Order 12 New Destroyers

The Hutorian Parliament has ordered twelve Liberty Class Destroyers to replace the Navy's aging Mashacara-Class. The Mashacara class destroyers are to be decommissioned and sold to Klavia as their replacements are built. Prosperity Ironworks has already been busy building the newest members of the Hutorian Navy.

Northern Council Joint Fleet Holding off of Vanuku

HMHS-Empress Sarah IV & HMHS-Timothy Drumf en route to Jelbania

In a showing of force and determination the joint Northern Council Fleet, is in it's holding position near Vanuku and Jelbania in a standoff with the Vanukean Royal Navy in who will blink first.

The powerful Northern Council Joint Operations Fleet is made up of elements of the Kazullian 2nd Fleet, Luthori's Task Force Orange and the Hutorian Fourth and Sixth Fleets which rally from Luthori and Keymon respectively. At the centre of this immense fleet are a quartet of the Northern Council's Aircraft Carriers; the Kazullian KNS-Queen Annette, the Luthorian [/i]ILS-Luthoria[/i] and the Hutorian HMHS-Empress Sarah IV and Timothy Drumf. The collection of Aircraft Carriers, and their escorts, are the most powerful fleet of vessels assembled since the Wolfsheim War in Hulstria. The Fleet's immense projecting power is anchored by a massive net of Anti-Submarine Frigates and Air Defence Destroyers, critically the Liberty class Destroyers of the Royal Hutorian Navy.

While usually a closely held secret, it has also been leaked that at least three of Hutori's fiercesome Sentinel class Submarines are escorted the Northern Council Joint Fleet. The Sentinel is considered amongst the world's most powerful and stealthy Submarines and have served as the lynchpins of Hutorian nuclear power projection since their introduction. Defence analysts have spent years speculating their exact armament but it's widely believed each Sentinel carries at least four of the Hutorian Satanil-IV nuclear missiles, Hutori's most powerful nuclear missile. Normally the deployment the Sentinel's are a closely held secret, although it's believed one is always escorting a Hutorian Carrier Battle Group. The leak of their deployment is likely a direct challenge to Vanuku to reinforce how seriously the Northern Council takes Vanuku's use of nuclear weapons against Deltaria.

Carmichael Names Woodbury HSIS Director

On the heels of yet another presidential victory President Carmichael named retired Admiral Lucas Woodbury the new director of the Hutorian Security and Intelligence Service. Woodbury has a long history of Special Operations ranging from Hutori's elite Special Tactics & Reconnaissance (SPECTRE) to being in command of Hutori's Special Operation Command. His pedigree in the covert should afford Woodbury the experience necessary to effectively lead Hutori's intelligence agency.

Director Woodbury to Appear in Front of Parliamentary Oversight Committee

Newly appointed HSIS Director Lucas Woodbury is slated to appear before the Parliamentary Intelligence Oversight Committee later this week, to justify a request for an increase in funding for Hutori's spy agency. Current funding for HSIS is classified, however Parliamentary estimates by the Auditor General have judged that the intelligence agency consumes anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the Foreign Affairs budget every year, which places current funding levels anywhere between 2.2 and 2.7 Billion HLR.

The request for increased funding comes as Director Woodbury has shaken up most of HSIS's internal organization with an ambitious plan to massively expand HSIS's operating capabilities while scaling back the called "bureaucratic" tail which resides in the Sarah Steuart Intelligence Centre in Mission county, just outside of Bekenial.

Director Woodbury is the most public Director in decades, with most changing of the guards happening behind the scenes and rarely being acknowledged by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The very public announcement by President Carmichael has been seen by many intelligence and security analysts as a move to reinforce Hutori's renewed drive to rebuild their once formidable reputation one of Terra's finest intelligence gathering nations.

Vanuku: Responsible for Biological Attack?
Exposé by Jennifer Warfield

Image

Recently I was able to sit down and have an interview with someone who claims to have detailed knowledge of Hutorian classified documents. My source wishes to remain anonymous however, after extensive research all sources seem to indicate that the person in question is an incredibly reliable source.

Jennifer Warfield: If you don’t mind me asking, who do you work for?

Person X: I would rather not say.

JW: Fair enough. So, you claim to have knowledge of classified material. Revealing said material could put your job at risk, why do it?

PX: I think the people deserve to know, it’s not fair that this attack was perpetrated against them, yet they know little to nothing about it.

JW: What attack are you talking about? There hasn’t been a foreign attack on Hutorian soil for a long time.

PX: Well approximately four hundred years ago a biological attack was carried out against the Hutorian people in Roccato. Thousands were in infected and hundreds ended up dead.

JW: It sounds just like an outbreak of any other disease. Why do you think it was an attack?

PX: You don’t apprehend suspects in a simple outbreak. Not only were suspects arrested but, someone was eventually shot and killed in a raid regarding this contagion.

JW: Who supposedly conducted this investigation?

PX: Is was a HSEC/HFPS joint investigation.

JW: Okay…who supposedly was the person responsible?

PX: We don’t know the exact name of the operative but, he went by the alias “Michael Steele”

JW: Alias? Was he working with another country or organization?

PX: All evidence seems to indicate that he was working under the direction of the Vanukuean government.

JW: What was the biological agent?

PX: It was a weaponized influenza virus that was introduced to the population through Kincardine’s water treatment plant.

JW: Do you mind if I take these documents to validate these claims?

PX: Not at all you’ll see that this is quite authentic. I just want to make this tragedy and it’s perpetrators known to the people.

After the interview I took the documents to be authenticated and every single expert I took them to validated the authenticity of the documents. They ranged from former HSEC agents to former HSIS agents, top security advisers and many others. They said the same thing that not only were the documents real but, that the attack actually occurred. I even reached out to the current administration though they declined to comment. It seem that not only has Vanuku dropped atomic bombs but they also weaponized viruses as well.
