"In the United Netherlands most broadcasts are being done by private news agencies but some of the leading newspapers and news agencies have formed up a independent foundation called the Algemeen Nederlands Persbureau (General Dutch News Agency) which checks news reports for their factual accuracy and neutrality. The broadcasts itself on tv are being carried out by Polygoon (for cinema news) and the Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (Dutch Media Foundation), whereas information regarding safety gets taken care off by the SIRE or Postbus 51 and the weather by the Dutch Meteorological Institute. All news that will be posted here has been checked and published by the ANP to make sure that it contains facts, and is neutral and accurate.

The ANP has an excellent reputation throughout the United Netherlands."

Good evening,

In Golpejera, in the east of the Empire of Krieg a traffic accident claimed the life of a DUTCHBAT corporal and injured two others. Corporal Jacob Verhoeff, aged 21 was killed on the spot when their jeep crashed into a truck whose engine had broken down. The jeep had just come off a main road and didn't see the truck who had been parked around a corner.

The families of those involved have been notified and the Raadspensionaris called the family of Corporal Verhoeff to give them his personal condolences, as did the Emperor of Krieg Empire. For the life of one of the soldiers, private 1st class Tom Meulenaers, is still being feared.

Today the new federal government has announced more stringent traffic laws as it will now be mandatory for all cars, both civilian and military, to be fitted with seat belts. The provinces have announced to work closely together in passing this legislation. The new law will come into effect from next Sunday onward. It will also be mandatory to wear it and those not complying can face a fine up to ƒ 150,-.

The foundation Veilig Verkeer Nederland has decided to start a campaign to inform the public about the seat belts and on the dangers of not wearing them. They have announced a "shocking advertisement campaign". According to Rien Petersen off VVN who will be with us now over the phone. "Good evening, mijnheer Petersen can you inform of us about the campaign ?" "Good evening, as you know some 3100 people die each year in traffic and it has been estimated that with the seatbelt this number can be curtailed to around three quarters of that number according the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (Central Statistics Agency)." "And can you tell us more about the way in which your campaign will work ?" "Naturally-- we are going to inform people of what can happen if you have an accident when driving at a minimum speed of let's say 30 kilometers per hour. You can still fly through the windshield and break your ribs (or worse) if not belted in and we are going to show it. The campaign will be particularly focused on young parents and young inexperienced drivers- who are the highest casualty group". "When do you expect to start with your campaign, mijnheer Petersen ?". "We are expecting to begin somewhere next month, probably around the turn of September, early October. The federal government's public safety information agency Postbus 51 will work to broadcast this new information" "We thank you for your time, mijnheer". "You're welcome".

On now to foreign news.. Alsace-Lorraine joined the Rheinmark as a province. Commander in Chief of the Rheinmark forces, Field Marshal Wareheim attended the celebrations in Straßburg. The province will receive exactly the same priviliges as the other provinces, according to the Rheinmark State Media.

The weather forecast for tomorrow- as presented by the Nederlands Metereologisch Instituut (Dutch Meteorological Institute), mijnheer Kroll- the floor is yours.

Good evening listerners. Today was quite warm, with people looking for some shade or the refreshing cool of the sea. Tomorrow the heatwave will continue and we will see temperatures rising over 30 again.. probably around 31 on the sea coast and around 35 in southern Limburg....

This is the half past seven o'clock news as presented by the ANP.

Good evening,

In a emergency meeting of the Statenvergadering the Secretary of Defense has announced that the SFOR peacekeeping mission is under direct threat of being discontinued. This because of the verbal attacks launched by Krieg towards it's neighbors and it's recent actions in France. The foreign secretary of Rakatan has announced that their troops will be pulling out as soon as possible- leaving it to DUTCHBAT to fill the gaps. In turn he advised the Raadspensionaris that "discontinuing the mandate would be sensible as Krieg is obviously strong enough to defend it's own borders when he is participating in the pacification of France." "The only reason why we seem to be there is to cover his back instead of keeping the two parties from killing each other-- this is obviously not the meaning of SFOR". The Raadspensionaris was unwilling to comment on the matter but the debate is still raging. If withdrawn DUTCHBAT would be fully withdrawn by next weekend.

This is the 12 o 'clock news as presented by the ANP,

Good afternoon,

50888-a.jpg

This morning the two peacekeepers that had lost their lifes in Krieg Empire have been repatriated. With full military honor and accompanied by their comrades in arms, their respective families, people from the general public and some foreign dignitaries from Krieg Empire and Rakatan have private Corporal Jacob Verhoeff and Private 1st class Tom Meulenaers been welcomed home and handed over to their respective families. Both families have announced that the burial will take place in besloten kring (only the family and immediate circle of friends).

The Statenvergadering had decided that those involved in the peacekeeping mission will receive a special Krieg 2009 Peacekeeping ribbon which is currently under design. The two that died will receive it posthumously and will be awarded with the Erepenning voor Menslievend Hulpbetoon by popular demand. Those that are still in hospital will also be awarded with a wound badge.

**OOC: Philip Freriks & Erwin Kroll FTW!**

OOC: Abso-effing-lutely. That's why I am going to use this pair here as well ^^

Good evening,

This is the late night news as presented by the ANP.

IMG_3408.JPG

Despite of our neutrality the Republic of the United Netherlands has been asked for a joint military exercise with several other countries in Prussia. Since the threat to our independence is even larger then the one to our neutrality and hence we have accepted. The Regiment Infanterie Oranje Gelderland and the Cavalry Regiment Huzaren van Boreel will be brought over to Leipzig to participate along with the Prussian contingent. The Department of Defense refused to give anymore statements for now other then that the leaves of the National Guards of Brabant, Limburg and Flanders have been canceled for a surprise military exercise. The Department of Foreign Affairs also refused to give any statements about the wave of exercises that is currently taking place or are being planned.
