FEDERAL ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL RULES ON THE LUCIUM & CARIUM V. RES PUBLICA IN TRANS-LEPONTINE TUNNEL

The Federal Administrative Tribunal has decided the dispute between the Duchy of Caria and Duchy of Lucia on one side and the Commonwealth on the other in the matter of the major Trans-Lepontine Tunnel project going through the lands held by the Duchies. The rail and road tunnel would cross the Lepontine Mountains that stretch through the country West to East and would add to the existing tunnel network to boost North-South traffic of goods and passengers.

The two Duchies argued that the matter is one of local matter and outside of Federal jurisdiction and so any construction permits and authorizations are solely within the competence of the two Duchies. Both Duchies were concerned by the potential impact on their existing infrastructure, environmental concerns and an increase in rail and road traffic once the project is completed. The Commonwealth insisted that as this project benefits the entire Res Publica, it is up to the Federal Government to launch and implement the construction, oversight and management.

The Federal Administrative Tribunal sided with the Commonwealth and ruled that the matter was in Federal jurisdiction based on the Federal Constitution, the Federal Administrative Code and assorted Federal and also Ducal legislation. This was clearly a matter common to all Duchies, with an impact across Remuria, thus without any doubt a matter within the jursdiction the Res Publica. Furthermore, the Tribunal ruled that Duchies "acting alone or in a joint effort with other Duchies" may not substitute themselves to a matter of Federal jurisdiction based on the current legislation, further strengthening the position of the Federal Government in similar cases.

Environmental activists have condemned the ruling as a demonstration of an "economy over environment" approach that will not allow for sustainable development.

The Federal Environment Protection Directorate has rebuked criticism, stating that the project respects all national regulations and the project has been tailored specifically to bypass sensitive areas, even at an increased cost to be covered by the Federal budget and private investors.

The Federal Infrastructure and Transportation Directorate has welcomed the decision, hoping that actual construction works may begin at earnest after an update to the Feasibility Study that was conducted before the legal challenge raised by the Duchies, in order to reflect Ducal concerns with the impact of construction works on certain local areas.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS DIRECTORY MAINTAINS CROTOBALTISLAVONIA TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

Remuria has previously set travel recommendations for Crotobaltislavonia to "Do not travel" following the country's controversial policy towards people of Jewish background. Following the even more controversial coup-d'etat that saw the advent of a communist regime that is even more authoritarian and disrespectful of international norms than the previous one, the restrictions remain in place until further notice.

The Remurian Commonwealth does not have a direct diplomatic presence in Crotobaltislavonia, all Remurian still in the country in disregard of the travel restrictions are to contact the Remurian embassies in Lars, Etruria or Eschenbach, Elben.

REMURIA AGAIN MOVES LONG SEA EXERCISES DUE TO REGIONAL TENSIONS

The Defence Directorate has announced that the upcoming naval exercises in the Long Sea will be moved to the Northern Thamantic Ocean, after similar moves in previous years for the same reason.

Many experts agree that this has become a trend and will most likely continue as it allows to move the Navy's exercises away from prying eyes, contributes to High Seas maneuvering capability and doesn't upset neighbours.

The Defence Directorate has reiterated that the Commonwealth stands fully ready to employ the Navy in protection of the Commonwealth and her assets, but at this stage, the North Thaumantic offers broader possibilities of trying out wide maneuver and long range firing exercises than the Long Sea.

However, there is still a political blocker on officially and completely moving Naval exercises to the North Thaumantic as the Federal Government continues to refer to "Long Sea Exercises" that are "moved".

REMURIA SHALL NOT CHANGE CURRENT APPROACH TOWARDS THE RURIKGRAD PACT

The Remurian Commonwealth shall not change her current policy towards the Rurikgrad Pact and individual members, as well as prospective members. The Remurian Commonwealth has no diplomatic relations with Crotobaltislavonia (policy dates from before the Faragist coup, and many analysts consider a fast track admission to the Rurikgrad Pact a matter of time), Burgundian People's Republic (rump state following the dissolution of Burgundy) and Polesia (rump state following the dissolution of Trivodnia). Diplomatic relations are currently in place with Kadikistan and Ostmark.

However, with growing rumours of high level meetings between Pelasgian, Friulian and Kadikistani representatives, analysts agree that the Federal Government will soon find itself in troubled waters as power blocks form all around the Commonwealth.

REMURIAN INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS SHOW INTEREST IN AURARIAN MARKETS DURING DOWNTURN

The panic sell-off on the Aurarian stock exchange has seen an increased interest from Remurian institutional investors seeking to pick up Aurarian assets of interest at discounted prices. The apparent panic about a looming war with Kadikistan is taken into account, but, to quote one risk manager from Banca Motevecchio CIB, the "threat of war is ever present on the European geopolitical field, this is already factored into investment strategies year on year for the past hundred years, because when you live with live ammunition about to go off at any moment, this becomes the new normal".

REX, the Remurian unified exchange, has seen its REXC index tracking a diversified basket of 30 major listed companies in the red by 2% today as the correction follows the losses on the Aurarian stock exchange. However, the REOG index, tracking the Remurian oil & gas sector, has been in the positive today as analysts expect Remurian petroleum upstream and downstream companies, particularly the vertically integrated Remurian Shelf Energy and PetroRem, to benefit from the disengagement of ODS economies from the Kadikistani Special Economic Zones and the assorted flow of petroleum products from Kadikistan into ODS economies. July futures on the Remurian Crude benchmark were up 5% from previous day's closing.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ANALYSING THE IMPACT OF THE TREATY OF SPESSE CAREFULLY

The Federal Government has confirmed that it is analysing with care the impact the Treaty of Spesse might have on the Remurian Commonwealth now that the Grand Duchy of Furlanie has declared her open friendship for the Rurikgrad Pact and introduced some yet unclear relationship between the Friulian Crown and the Pelasgian Crowns. Previously, the Foreign Affairs Directorate has released a short note that they "take note" of the Treaty of Spesse.

Analysts indicate that the Remurian Commonwealth's policy has always taken place within a framework of the Pelasgian Empire staying on her southern side of the Long Sea and the Rurikgrad Pact staying in Eastern Germania. The latter has now clearly been torn to pieces with the Rurikgrad advancing triumphantly through Gallia, whilst the former is not yet clear from the perspective of any relations between the Grand Duchy of Furlanie and the Pelasgian Empire.

FOREIGN MINISTRY
UNCLASSIFIED COMMUNICATION TO THE REMURIAN FOREIGN OFFICE
The Treaty of Spesse is an historic progress towards peaceful cooperation in Europe, by coming together and re-balancing the world order we push the ghost of war further away from Gallo-Germania.

The ties between Pelasgia and Furlanìe go back hundreds of years, to the crusades, and even further back, with our Patriarchate being strongly influenced by the religious thoughts of the ancient Christians in Propontis. The treaty puts on paper this historic relation for the first time, bringing our people closer together in the name of peace, stability, freedom of navigation and trade.

FINANCE DIRECTORATE ADVISES REMURIAN COMPANIES TO TREAD CAREFULLY IN ODS SANCTIONS AGAINST RURIKGRAD PACT

Companies factually controlled by Remurian nationals or legal entities will hence forth have to "tread carefully" in the matter of ODS sanctions against the Rurikgrad Pact. Companies will have to choose which economic partner they wish to deal with moving forward and have to review their current book of business if they are exposed to both the ODS and the Rurikgrad Pact markets.

The Finance Directorate has also issued a special advisory concerning Pelasgian threats to impose a full out embargo on the ODS if certain Pelasgian companies are in turn sanctioned by the ODS. The current political turmoil in Pelasgia itself and the statement of the apparently to be sanctioned companies against a full on embargo make the situation extremely fluent and subject to sudden evolution. As such, investment decisions in the short term need to be weighted in regards to these factors, as well as possible domino effects of any ODS counter-measures to possible Pelasgian embargoes.

REMURIAN CHURCH CONDEMNS KADIKISTANI SEIZURE OF PELASGIAN CHURCH'ES PROPERTY

The Metropolitan Archbishop Alessandro of Justianopoli and of the Remurian Nations, the Head of the Remurian Church has condemned Kadikistani seizure of properties owned by the Pelasgian Church in Kadikistan and has called on the Christian world to unite in condemnation and prayers for the suffering of the Pelasgian Orthodox faithful by the authorities of Ivar.

The Remurian Church, the autocephalous Orthodox church in the Commonwealth, remains highly influential within the Commonwealth despite a clear separation between Church and State.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ISSUES AN IMMEDIATE WARNING TO REMURIAN NATIONALS IN PELASGIA

Remurian Nationals in Pelasgia, and their family members of foreign descent, have been ordered to stay indoors, avoid going outside as much as possible, always bear with them their Remurian credentials. If possible, citizens should report to the nearest diplomatic or consular office of the Commonwealth in Pelasgia. However, diplomatic and consular offices have only limited facilities available before they are overwhelmed.

The Federal Government has already issued a public request to the Pelasgian Empire to seek authorization to organise repatriation flights or sea missions for Remurian Nationals seeking to return to the Commonwealth and has pre-booked cruise ships and commercial aircraft for charter flights, ready to go should authorisations be received.

REMURIA LAUNCHES SEA AND AIR REPATRIATION MISSIONS OF REMURIAN CITIZENS AND DEPENDENTS

Following the go ahead from the Pelasgian authorities, the Remurian Commonwealth has launched naval and air evacuation missions to bring back Remurian nationals and their dependents. The operation will be run by the Federal Government which has chartered commercial ferries from several companies and passenger planes from RemurAir for the missions. Some medical personnel and military security specialists will accompany the missions to ensure an orderly process. The evacuation is currently done on a voluntary basis and Remurian citizens and their dependents have to specify their wish for evacuation to a diplomatic office. Regardless of this, the blank order to stay indoors and avoid areas hit by hostilities is in place.

The Commonwealth has also reached out to neighboring nations of Eiffelland-Retalia, Auraria, Madurja, Etruria and Furlanie with an offer to provide seats and places on Remurian assets for their own nationals, if such is required.

Additionally, the Federal Government has confirmed that the flights and ships going in would be bringing in humanitarian assistance, such as medicines, hospital supplies, disinfectants and other means to support the civilian population in combat hit areas and help the government prevent anti-sanitary conditions. The assistance will be handed fully to the Pelasgian government to disburse and employ as and when required. The Federal Government has reiterated that the Commonwealth's assistance is provided in good faith to support the civilian populations as required.

AUTHORITIES REINFORCE SECURITY AROUND FOREIGN EMBASSIES

Concrete blocks have appeared on steeets next to the buildings and compounds housing foreign embassies in Emerita Augusta as authorities are reinforcing security. Military Police has been deployed on guard duty. A provisional order banning public gatherings within 200 meters of foreign representations has been put in place, to be reviewed on a weekly basis.

The additional security comes after the assassination of the Pelasgian Ambassador to Central Himyar and unconfirmed reports that foreign powers would seek to further destabilise the situation.

REMURIA WILL WELCOME PERSECUTED ORTHODOX FAITHFUL FROM KADIKISTAN

The Federal Government has confirmed that any Kadikistani orthodox faithful seeking to gain asylum in Remuria shall be welcomed, in so far as security checks confirm they are not affiliated with Marxist-Leninist undercover groups or agencies of the Kadikistani government. The Government has also condemned the continued violations of human rights by the authorities in Ivar and has issued the Kadikistani Ambassador to Emerita Augusta with a protest at the "escalation of persecution of Kadikistani citizens by their own government."

The move of granting asylum and residency is mostly symbolic, as the number of Kadikistani Orthodox faithful that could realistically reach Remuria is estimated as very limited due to both distance and Kadikistan's border controls.
