Woman Charged With Fake Witchcraft, Days Before Nieubasria Scraps Old Law      December 27, 1419

 

Last week, Prince Owain assented to the Hier's omnibus package of administrative changes and edits to the law codes, under which Nieubasria was set to repeal a number of so-called "vestigial laws". The targeted laws remained on the books after they were found to be unconstitutional, redundant, or just, well ... archaic and weird.

One law that was nixed was Section 368 of the Crime and Offences Acts – the law that made it illegal to practice fake witchcraft. It prohibits:

"Every one who fraudulently and for some consideration of monetary value pretends to exercise or to use any kind of witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment, abjuration, or conjuration; assume some discernment of spirits or purported mediumship; undertakes to tell fortunes; endeavour to perform psychometry, precognition, or apportation; or pretends from his skill in or knowledge of an occult or crafty science to discover where or in what manner anything that is supposed to have been stolen or lost may be found...."

Despite the government's labeling that law as archaic and slated for erasure, an Off Dean woman was charged last week with fraudulent witchcraft – fortunetelling, specifically – just four days before the law was officially removed, Off Dean Police report.

Police in the small city of Off Dean told the Dean Digest that allegedly "a local woman, who maintains an alias and holds herself out to be a self-proclaimed spiritualist, medium and clairvoyant, attempted to elicit funds from an Off Dean resident in return for protection from some form [of] potential danger likely to occur to their family."

The accused is 39-year-old Adaine Walsh, who goes by the nickname "Juniper Witch of Dean" – but she says it's a misnomer. "People proclaimed me a witch here and gave me a nickname, but I'm not a witch," she told the Neuse News. "I'm a psychic."

A spokesman for the Off Dean police told the broadcaster that they use the most applicable laws on the books at the time of the alleged offense.

As The Clarendon Post reported in October, when two Colkirk women were charged with posing as witches, a person convicted of the crime faces up to six months in prison or a $2,000 fine, or both:

"Section 368 has been law in Nieubasria since 1292. It originated in a Tamaric statute from 1135 that repealed an earlier law classifying witchcraft as a felony, after centuries of witch hunts in early modern Polaris. The 1135 repeal reserved 'a minor punishment' for 'cheats and rogues' pretending to practice witchcraft, according to a paper in the Basric Law Review from the time.

"The law remained unchanged in Nieubasria over the centuries but for the addition of the phrase 'fraudulently and for some consideration of monetary value' in the 1360s."

Walsh has been summoned to appear in court next month. The Clarendon Post reports she denies the allegations and believes she was framed by other psychics.

Joint General Agreement between the Queen's Foreign Office of Cambria and the Estates-Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nieubasria concerning the Sharing of Consular Services

 

Having regard to the Exchange of Notes of October 7, 1369 constituting an Agreement between the Crown of Cambria and the Crown of Nieubasria concerning the sharing of consular services abroad, and recognizing the similar philosophies underlying the provision of consular services to their respective nationals as well as the benefits flowing from cooperation in consular matters, the Queen's Foreign Office of Cambria (QFO) and the Estates-Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EMFA) of Nieubasria have reached the following understanding on consular services to be provided to their respective nationals, points of service and other applicable conditions detailed below.

Scope

1) In the interest of providing consular protection and assistance to the citizens of Cambria and Nieubasria travelling or resident in consular areas specified in the Schedule to this General Agreement (referred to as "the specified consular areas") where there is not a consular officer of their own country, the missions of the other country specified in the Schedule of this General Agreement (referred to as "the responsible missions:) will extend to the citizens of the other country the consular services specified in paragraph 5 (referred to as "the specified consular services").

2) Each Foreign Service will assume the costs of its own administration including communications, salaries, travel and overtime costs of both headquarters and locally-engaged mission personnel, but will reimburse the other Service of funds provided to, or expended on behalf of, consular clients as part of the specified consular services. The Supervising Mission concerned will reimburse the relevant Mission of the other country as soon as possible for the amounts in question. Consequently, Departments will not seek reimbursement direct from citizens of the other country.

3) The Service providing specified consular services will levy fees as required by its own regulations and will retain such fees.

Responsible missions, specified consular areas and supervising missions

4) The responsible missions of each Service together with the specified consular areas for which they are responsible and the supervising missions of the other Service are set out in the Schedule to this General Agreement.

Specified consular services

5) The specified consular services extended under this General Agreement will be the following:

a) intervention in the case of arrest or detention;

b) intervention to assist victims of crime and/or accidents;

c) assistance on international child abduction/custody cases;

d) relief, financial assistance and repatriation (services provided on a recoverable basis), including intervention in the case of deportation;

e) assistance in the case of illness and hospitalization, including arrangements for the payment of medical and hospital accounts (services provided on a recoverable basis);

f) issue of emergency travel documents in accordance with paragraphs 8 and 10;

g) assistance with arrangements regarding the deaths of citizens including local burial or shipments of the remains;

h) assistance relating to lost or stolen property enquiries;

i) assistance relating to local enquiries regarding the whereabouts of nationals of the other country;

j) assistance relating to crisis management;

k) local registration of nationals of the other country;

l) retention of private mail on behalf of travelling citizens, if the responsible mission already does this for its own citizens;

m) passing on requests for information and services not covered in subparagraphs (a) to (l) to the supervising mission; and

n) reporting monthly to respective Service statistics showing time spent on items (a) to (k) and including general inquiries received by telephone or over the counter.

These services will be provided in accordance with the provisions and administrative financial regulations of each Service, as set forth in paragraphs 19, 20 and 21.

6) Services which will not be included in this General Agreement are the issuance of regular passports or of visas of any kind, legal or notarial acts, assistance in extradition cases, administration of the estates of citizens, registration of deaths, invigilation of examinations and the provision of specific information on any matter other than that pertaining to those consular services set out in paragraph 5.

Emergency travel documents

7) When directed by the Nieubasric supervising mission the Cambrian responsible mission will issue Nieubasric "Emergency Passports" to Nieubasric citizens effective only for a limited time and for the purpose of travelling to Nieubasria or to the nearest Nieubasric mission.

8) When directed by the Cambrian supervising mission the Nieubasric responsible mission will issue "Cambrian Documents of Identity" to Cambrian citizens effective only for a limited time and for the purpose of travelling to Tara and Cambray or to the nearest Cambric mission.

9) ESFA will deposit an accountable number of Nieubasric "Emergency Passports" with each Cambric responsible mission. QFO will deposit an accountable number of "Cambric Documents of Identity" with each Nieubasric responsible mission.

10) ESFA will inform QFO of the names of the Nieubasric Consular Officers at each Nieubasric responsible mission who it is proposed will issue "Tamaric Order Documents of Identity" so that QFO may designate such persons to carry out that function. 

Crisis management

11) Both Services recognize the value and importance of contingency planning and crisis management, and the opportunities presented by bilateral cooperation in this area.  Both Services have mutually decided that:

(i) each responsible mission will account for both Cambric and Nieubasric citizens in their emergency plans for the schedule of countries under this General Agreement;

(ii) the responsible mission will  share these emergency plans with the appropriate supervising mission; and

(iii) the responsible and supervising missions will foster an ongoing dialogue on contingency planning whereby their roles and responsibilities as they relate to the emergency plans are clarified and updated as needed.

12) Both Services recognize the value and importance of contingency planning exercises.  Both Services have mutually decided that their missions will invite participation from their counterpart mission(s) in contingency planning exercises that are conducted in countries of their accreditation.  Both Services especially encourage joint participation in contingency planning exercises conducted in ‘specified consular areas’ under the bilateral consular sharing agreement. In addition, both Services will look to host capitals-managed crisis preparedness exercises and liaise with each other on timing and participation.

Role of supervising missions

13) Each responsible mission will report to, and seek specific instructions and authorities from, its supervising mission. Both Services recognize the importance of regular personal contact between officials of supervising missions and their charges in order to monitor implementation of this General Agreement, provide supplies and advice and information that may be useful for the delivery of consular services to respective nationals. Supervising missions are encouraged to visit their charges annually. Supervising missions should ensure that appropriate training is provided and that there is a full understanding of the applicable service standards or client service charters.

Communications

14) Consultations between missions will often be by telephone. However, specific instructions and authorities should be confirmed in writing so that there is a written record. Such messages may be relayed either directly between missions by commercial means, or through the communications facilities of either Services. Each Service will explore and where agreed to, establish electronic communications between missions using appropriate communications and software technologies.

Travel advisories

15) Both Services recognize the value and importance of providing their respective nationals with up to date information on intended destinations. Both agree on the need to ensure close cooperation in the dissemination of travel reports, especially for those destinations covered by the present General Agreement.

Language of service

16) The Queen's Foreign Office and the Estates-Ministry of Foreign Affairs will provide specified consular services in Astorian and Common, as required. 

Complaints

17) In the event of a complaint by any national about service provided by a mission of the other country, the complaint should be referred to the home Service of the relevant mission for investigation.

Privacy

18) Personal information provided by a national or permanent resident of either country to a consular or diplomatic agent of the other country will be afforded protection in accordance with the requirements of Cambric privacy regulations, Nieubasric privacy regulations, or both, as applicable. To the extent that either country has information about citizens of the other country in its possession or under its control, where there is a request for access to personal information from an individual about themselves, the country in possession or control of the information requested will respond according to the terms of its own legislation. Use or disclosure of personal information in the possession of or under the control of the Responsible Mission is permissible in accordance with the privacy law of the country of the Responsible Mission. In the event of conflict with the obligations to the Supervising Mission under this arrangement, the privacy laws of the country of the Responsible Mission will prevail. When appropriate, the client’s consent should be obtained before personal information is disclosed to another party. As a general rule: a) the information should be used only for the purpose for which it has been obtained; and b) the information should be afforded adequate protection and disposed of when no longer required.

Consular guides and instructions

19) For services provided on behalf of Cambria the standing instructions will be those in the Manual of Consular Instructions (volumes 1 and 2).

20) For services provided on behalf of Nieubasria the standing instructions will be those found in the Consular Instructions of Nieubasria and the Manual of Nieubasric Passport Issue.

21) Nieubasric and Cambric officers may be provided with specific consular, administrative, and financial instructions relating to this General Agreement mutually decided upon by both Services, to supplement the general instructions referred to in paragraphs 19 and 20.

Notification and publicity

22) Both Services will ensure that the Governments of Receiving States are aware and have no objection to the arrangements for consular sharing provided for in this General Agreement.

23) Each Service will take steps to inform its citizens who are travelling to or resident in the specified consular area of the consular protection and assistance they may expect.

Final provisions

24) The two Services will consult from time to time at the request of either to consider amendments to this General Agreement (including changes to the Schedule), which they jointly consider desirable.

25) The operation of this General Agreement will be reviewed annually to coincide with its anniversary. If no review is scheduled in a particular year alternative arrangements will be made by both parties.

26) This General Agreement replaces the Joint General Agreement on Sharing Consular Services between the Queen's Foreign Office of Cambria and the Estates-Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Nieubasria, signed 15 January, 1370 at Clarendon, and takes effect on signature. It may be terminated by either Service giving notice of termination. The General Agreement will terminate 6 months after receipt of that notice. 

SIGNED at Josalyn , this 15th day of January, 1401 in duplicate, in the Astorian and Common languages, each version being equally valid.

Protesters Raise "Minesweeper" Flag Outside Dalimbari Embassy      February 26, 1420image.png.7e52de19f1466be6a4588969163394c3.png

Above is pictured an approximation of a flag raised by a protester outside the Dalimbari Embassy during the demonstrations on this Tuesday. A number of social issues groups gathered outside the Dalimbari diplomatic mission in Clarendon to demonstrate - one such group that claimed authorship of the "Minesweeper" flag was attempting -in the words of Jolanda Piers- to "raise social consciousness of the Dalimbari Junta's inhumane use of landmines all along its border to keep its oppressed population in and democratic ideals out".

International Passport Scam: Police, Border Agents and Officers
Implicated in Cross-Border Organized Crime

CLARENDON- At least three police officers and 27 other people are under investigation in a major passport fraud case that included issuing state identity documents under false pretenses to criminal fugitives from abroad, Nieubasric authorities said today, confirming a smiliar Wednesday Cambric announcement.

"We can confirm that our Internal Affairs division has placed three officers on investigative suspension and related investigations are ongoing," stated Chief of Clarendon Police, Isaac Guin. When pressed on details, the Chief reiterated that the department will not comment on ongoing investigations. 

In a later press release, the Internal Affairs division stated 38 state identity cards and 31 passports issued between 1412 and 1419 had been canceled as a result of the investigation. No issuing state was identified, and HRH's Passport Office declined to release whether any were Nieubasric in origin.
    
Passport fraud checks have been stepped up in recent years due to the growing number of cases of third-nationals traveling on to Nieubasria from trusted countries. Enhanced restrictions for third-nationals went into effect in Nieubasria in 1416. 

Police did not say whether any of the minimum 30 suspects have been formally arrested.
