Generale Junio Borghese

RAI Radio Televisione Italiana

MILANO - Italy was plunged into its third coup in 20 days today, after Junio Borghese dissolved the parliament and suspended the constitution, risking international isolation from Europe, Asia and America. He also promoted himself to the rank of Generale (General) "The military has taken over the government, has executive authority and the running of this country," Generale Borghese told a news conference broadcast nationally. He urged all citizens to remain calm.

The press describe the coup as a "silent reform" of Italy's government from a de-facto single-party authoritarian state to a military government renamed "Governo Militare Provvisorio" (Provisional Military Government). The long-anticipated move reached its climax when when the war flag of the Republic, often shown for propaganda purpose, was risen infront of the parliament. Armed troops blocked the center of the city, and seized the headquarter of newspaper "Il Popolo D'Italia" where a crowd of supporters of the former fascist regime gathered up to applaud the move.

Newspaper "Il Popolo D'Italia" announced that it had suspended publication after the military ordered it not to publish material that might incite trouble. Soldiers erected roadblocks around Milan, and checkpoints were also set up in Salò, the de-jure capital of the Italian Republic. The coup follows days of economical and environmental disarray. Analysts say there will be no difference with Borghese's last Government, ending Italy's short "democratic" experience. Junio Borghese still hold his grips on Italy and many still identify him as the only true "Father of the Fatherland". The collapse of the GNR, the forced isolationism and limited trade, also prompted nationalism and tied the public opinion with Borghese's authoritarian methods, resembling General Petrus Malan's government.

Nothing will change from the last legislation. Generale Borghese still denies any involvement in the kidnapp and murder of MSI's leader Giorgio Almirante, and promised investigations will be carried on.

A spokesperson of the interim called a press conference in Bordeaux.

"Italy is a close neighbour of France and we are deeply concerned with any threat to their domestic stability. We hope that then the Italians will be able to resolve their internal difficulties within due time. In the mean time however France officially condemns this flagrant disregard for democracy and civil liberties."

* PRIVATELY *

"So, what's the deal with Italy?" Acquitaine president Alain asked General Lacoste. Neither man have talked face to face in years, until the creation of a French state allowed the latter to take upon a more public office. Sadly the dramatic reunion wasn't very satisfactory.

"We have no idea. Who told you I had spies?"

"...Where did you pull all those !@#$ you've been feeding me from then!?"

"Technically, they are informers."

It has just dawned on our government that the Republic of Transvaal has no formal diplomatic relations established yet with Italy. Therefore the Republic of Transvaal would like to open an embassy in Italy and exchange ambassadors to show our ideological solidarity with Italy.

We will be assigning Ms. Annetjie van Matteus as our ambassador. She also heads our Department of Atomic Research - however since Transvaal currently has no nuclear weapons due to treaty decomissions, she has been rather idle at her desk as of late and requested the appointment to Italy (OOC: shopping trip)

We strongly condemn this move by the Fascist regime.

The Blue Water fleet that was steadily growing with 4 to 5 ships within weeks would increase patrol runs of International Waters just bordering the territorial waters of the Fascists.

Milan, Cathedral Square

The Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Robero Ciano, gives the authorization to open an Embassy in a 15th century palace with many frescoes and statues located in the center of Milan. The building will be heavily guarded by the Guardia Nazionale Repubblicana (National Republican Guard, the gendarmerie) under the supervision of the Ministry of Defense, the principle of extraterritoriality will also be fully recognized within the perimeter of the embassy. For any special requests, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is available around the clock.

The Italian Ambassador in the Republic of Transvaal will be Vittorio Cerretti.
