Getting Rid of the Bad Apples

The Imperial Governor of Bohemia, Frederick Von Hapsburg, had been allowed to speak out against the Empire for far too long. Some Imperial officials were worried that the Governor's brazen attitude could incite turmoil in the Empire. While, on the otherhand, some Imperial officials felt that the Emperor's generosity had been taken for granted. Emperor Visari could care less for the words that the broken Governor spoke. He was more concerned about the ramifications that such speech could bring. Therefore, he ordered a crackdown on the current government in Bohemia. This would be the last time he showed mercy to Frederick Von Hapsburg. Nikolaus Wätteren, head of the Imperial Security Bureau, immediately drafted an arrest for Frederick Von Hapsburg. In reality, he had no real reason to do as the Emperor's word was all that he needed. However, he did it to add an aura of legitimacy to the upcoming operation.

[b]Operation: Peace[/b]

Within hours of the order being drafted, the operation began. Nordic forces in Bohemia cut all communications to and from the palace that the government operated from. The next step came from regular Nordic army forces who would surround the capital, effectively cutting it off from the rest of Bohemia. After the successful completion of those operations, the next assault began. Agents from the Enforcement Department of the Imperial Security Bureau raided the palace. One hundred heavily armed agents entered the palace with one goal in mind, to arrest the rebel government along with Frederick Von Hapsburg.

Upon being arrested, He would be tried in the Empire's High Courts for Treason.

Frederick was sitting in his office, reading reports and signing laws, as he heard commotion downstairs in the main hall of the Imperial palace. From his office he could hear clearly the breaking of glass, the smashing of furniture, and the shouting of voice's. As he began thinking what all this commotion was about, a loud knock on his door disturbed his train of thought. A young man dressed in the typical Bohemian Military Uniform walked into Frederick's office with a frightened expression on his face. He spoke and said [i]"Governor Hapsburg, Sir! Multiple heavily armed agents of the Dalmatian Enforcement Department of the Imperial Security Bureau are arresting people on the spot. We must get you to safety!"[/i]

Just as the young soldier finished his sentence a group of six heavily armed agents came bursting into the room. They raised their weapons at both the soldier and Frederick. One of the agents spoke and said to the soldier [i]"Drop your weapon"[/i]. The young fellow did so without hesitation. He was then grabbed and escorted out of the room by two agents as, what appeared to be, the leader of the group approached the Governor's desk.

Frederick slowly arose from his seat as he said [i]"How can I help you?"[/i]. The agent replied [i]"Frederick Von Hapsburg, you are hereby under arrest for treason against the Emperor and the state of Dalmatia."[/i] Frederick chuckled and said [i]"Is that so? Unfortunate"[/i]. Frederick was then escorted out of his office by the Dalmatian agents.

It is a pity to see a Hapsburg sink so far below the family standard. Unfortunately the fate is deserved in this case. Every nation must stand up for stability as the alternative of anarchy merely breeds opportunities for bandits and leeches upon the world. The United Federation of the East encourages that the prisoner be treated with dignity, but the evidence is overwhelming. Often the affairs of state are not pleasant.

The entire government of Bohemia would be transported to Tbilisi for a trial in the nation's Supreme Court. To replace the government in Bohemia, the central government would appoint loyal and more trustworthy officials from the Empire to govern Bohemia.

Through my High Chancellor of Defense, Mikhail Zherdev, it has come to my attention that the Greater Nordic Empire of Dalmatia has now arrested the government of Bohemia. High Chancellor Zherdev has been handling the international statements of the Chancellery of Cyrantia in this unfortunate affair thus far, which I have been fine with, but at this point I must get officially involved.

I understand the Dalmatians plan on trying the former leaders of Bohemia for treason against their new superiors. It is unfortunate this has happened, but looking over the incident and the aftermath it is understandable. However, I cannot sit by and simply wait for this trial to commence against the friends we have made in Bohemia. The Chancellery of Cyrantia therefore formally requests the release of those Bohemians arrested to Cyrantia. In Cyrantia they will present the Dalmatians no further trouble, and we can avoid a mess of a trial and conviction. In other words, everyone wins.

"I can only hope Herr Hapsburg's successor has more sense than he. Inciting revolts isn't the best way to endear yourself to your superiors, especially after a clear warning from the Dalmatian imperial government. We are glad to see, however, that the Dalmatian government took legal action rather than a brash military response."

The UFE does not believe a reactionary like this deserves mercy. He should be tried according to the laws of Dalmatia, rather than be allowed to continue their destructive policies. Further we call all governments which have not yet recognized this rebel province as part of Dalmatia to adhere strictly to the rules of international law and recognize the One Dalmatia Policy!

With the arrest of the former administration, Bohemia is in need of a new leadership. Even though the nation is still in a period of sadness with the arrest of Frederick Von Hapsburg, they have no hostility to a new leadership primarily lead by a Bohemia-Dalmatian citizen.

Nikolaus Mannerheim is the son of a Dalmatian Mother and Bohemian Father. He was born within the Dalmatia Empire, but raised in Bohemia. Nikolaus is a strong believer in Nordic principles and believes in applying them to Bohemian culture. Although loyal to both nations, Nikolaus wishes to see Bohemia a independent Kaiserreich, but this time with stronger and loyal connections to the Empire of Dalmatia and Bohemia's Nordic past. Nikolaus cannot stress how important loyalty to Dalmatia is.

His stance on the former government and international opinion is quite simple. He condemns Frederick's actions of broadcasting rebellion, but understands that he only reacted the way any leader would when his or her nation is invaded. For that, Nikolaus, does not despise Frederick, but thinks lesser of him for attempting to achieve his goal by force, and abusing the generosity offered by Dalmatia. On international opinion, Nikolaus, condemns the criticism of a leader trying to free his nation after invasion. He wonders, for example, if such nations would condemn the Free French trying to liberate their nation after invasion during World War II?

[b]New administration[/b]

[i][b]Governor:[/b][/i] Nikolaus Mannerheim
[i][b]Consul of Finance:[/b][/i] Annbjörg Frej
[i][b]Consul of Foreign Affairs:[/b][/i] Samantha Sinthgunt
[i][b]Consul of Internal Affairs:[/b][/i] Alfred Viðarr
[i][b]Consul of Military:[/b][/i] Dietrich Ejner

The new administration is of both Bohemian and Dalmatian descent. They are loyal to the Emperor of Dalmatia, Loyal to the State of Dalmatia, and loyal to Bohemia.
