President Silvia Leggièri has signed into law the National Service Expansion Act, which passed both houses of Parliament with wide majorities last week. Under current law all citizens who have turned 18 years of age must enlist in the National Service for a period of 12 months. While most enlistees opt for the Armed Forces or the Aerospace Service, there are available slots in every ministry. The newly passed law allows the National Service to sign agreements with state governments so that enlistees have the option to serve their mandated time with state agencies, something that was previously not possible.

Breaking: The Empress and The Emperial Parliament have passed a life changing bill. This bill aimed to raise the retirement age to 70 due to the surprising healthiness of our Elderly. People who are retired now at the age of 60 will remain so. This bill also gives retirees a check once every 3 months of 40,000 Astrons, plus what is approved by your Retirement Agency. Thousands calling for a recall of the bill already due to the jump in the retirement age. Empress Xemptoworth has listened and is thinking of alternatives to present to the Emperial Parliament. More news later.

A family has been arrested in connection with the disappearance and apparent murder of over 52 individuals over the years. The family, whose name is being kept confidential, consisted of a couple and two brothers and operated the Golden Nest, a motel along an abandoned road. While the road previously connected Regù with other cities in southern Tavoletro, it had since fallen into disrepair after a more modern highway was built over 30 years ago.

Police say that the family was discovered after the Golden Nest caught fire in the course of an altercation with a backpacking couple who had opted to spend a night there. The couple, whose names are also being kept confidential, was chased and tortured before escaping and accidentally burning the motel. When police arrived the family was incapacitated and was promptly arrested, while the surviving couple was taken to a hospital for treatment. Reports indicate that cars and bodies have been found in a nearby swamp, behind the motel.

Further information is being released about the murders in the Golden Nest Motel. Police now say that the Pagliarani Family had also taken over abandoned nearby establishments, such as a service station and a general store, which they used to lure lost or unsuspecting victims. Investigators from the Cabarinieri have been dispatched from Messelia to lend support to the investigation, amid certain reports that the Pagliarani Family was more extended than the 4 members who were arrested.

Breaking: Vice HoS (Vice Head of State) Julian Aguirre has stepped out against DT in the Empire. Here's a clip of he said...

"This reign of violence has to end! You have free healthcare, free education, and we're in the process of fixing faulty infrastructure to prevent flooding from rising sea levels, not just on the coasts, but in the MAINLAND too! What more do you want...?"

The Vice HoS is clearly upset about the violence happening around the Empire, with the latest being a Naval ship that was reportedly detonated as it was taking off from Port. More on that later...

Parliament working hard to prevent any more DT from happening. Quadropartisonship (All 4 of the FE's major ruling parties) is being used and the Empress, leading discussions on what to do to prevent any DT, has an open mind and is willing to listen to all sides of the aisle.

Sartoria has committed to increase by 10% its funding to the Global Health Organisation, following through with a campaign promise and despite certain defiance by the Opposition in the House of Councillors. The increased funding, which will be made effective at the start of the next fiscal year, will be used to promote the GHO's main health initiatives, including birth control, emergency health services and vaccine research.

Health Councillor Maria Vercelli welcomed the increased funding, saying that "the GHO is a key partner in the effort to make the world a healthier, more prosperous place". Giacomo Marini, Shadow Health Councillor, criticsed the measure by remarking that Sartoria already contributes 20% of the GHO's budget and that "resources would be better allocated towards ensuring that all countries contribute their fair share".

Breaking: We now have more development on the Naval Ship incident out of Southern Franconia Empire. A group known as Dawgz is claiming responsibility for the detonation of a Franconian Naval Ship that had just pulled off port. At the scene, 4 tons of dynamite powder were found on the ground. 72 were injured, 26 killed, including 14 FE Servicemen and Women. Damage to Fort Leonard and the surrounding area is still being calculated, but is so far at 8.3 Billion Astrons. We'll have more on this later.

Developing News: MP Sequoia Lee Benson was arrested today for evidence found against her in the attack on Fort Leonard. When taken in for questioning, MP Benson claimed to investigators that there were 6 others from Parliament setting up the attack as well. Over 20 people, including the 7 from Parliament, set up the attack. People are also missing from on board, nowhere to be seen. FEBI is launching a manhunt for the criminals that are missing from the Fort Leonard attack. Only 3 people are in custody and 17 others are being placed on the no fly list. The Department of Border Security is issuing a "No Travel" Alert to the region until DT in the Franconia Empire has stopped. We will have more as it develops.

Breaking: 7 MP's, and 5 others were captured for planning the detonation of a Franconian Naval Ship. Trial has been announced to be on September 12. September 12 will be a very historic day, with 12 trials back to back to back for the first time in Franconian History. The cost for 12 consecutive trials to the government... Only 4 Million Astrons, not even a dent in the monthly surplus budget.

Special Elections are being held in a year for the 7 seats of, now expelled, MP's. The Empress is now suggesting setting new rules for running for Parliament, including, if elected, a special hearing to see if corruption and treason will be committed.

More news later.

Captain Giacomo Bellucci of the Carabinieri Office of Technical Investigations has informed that the investigation into the Golden Nest Murders is ongoing, but that all members of the Pagliarani Family are accounted for and are currently in custody, pending criminal proceedings. While the investigation into the murders was initially led by general investigators, the case was soon after taken by the Office of Technical Investigations, for unexplained reasons.
