    Grand Duchy of Lars,
    Prime Minister's press office, room full of national and non-national journalists.


    Prime Minister Tusca Larci,

    "Beloved people of Lars and citizens of other nations, I have decided to communicate directly the sad facts of which my government has come to know. Yesterday, the whole senate, including the opposition, voted unanimously to introduce sanctions against the Republic of Serreniere and the territories militarily controlled by them following the seven-day war.

    This decision was made following the delivery of the documents concerning the official investigation by the Regional Security and Cooperation Observatory. At the end of this press release, the documents will all be sent to all the countries that request it."

    The prime minister began to read the documents he had on the lectern.

    "Following thousands of testimonies from citizens and soldiers involved in the conflict, images and videos collected during the days of war by military and civil sources, medical reports, site inspections (where it was possible), OCSR is certain that there have been numerous conduct morally questionable by the Serenniere army.

    -The SRN Republic, during the entire war period, did not take necessary measures to avoid involving civilian targets in the conflict, avoiding unnecessary suffering for the population.
    The use of "high performance" weapons such as;
    • Napalm,
    • VX nerve agent
    on civilian/military and city under siege objectives it is to be considered a real form of premeditated extermination. No possibility has been given to the wounded to safely evacuate civilians along the humanitarian corridor.

    -There are numerous testimonies of how every form of resistance, even unarmed, by the civil population, was repressed with force even lethal by the soldiers of SRN. There are also reports by this commission of rumors about the possible existence of common graves containing Occitan bodies. Further investigations are required in the territory of W. Occitania.

    -Many missile, artillery and bomb targets were culturally relevant buildings without military functions such destruction of Occitan patrimony with the bombardment of the city of Viasinde and Marsilia.

    Consequently, without any doubt, this international commission of the Regional Security and Cooperation Observatory, can affirm that the Republic of Serenniere, during its military operations, considered the civil population of the Kingdom of Occitania on a par with a military target, causing millions of victims and countless numbers of displaced persons.

    -The presence of child soldiers within the military staff of the Kingdom of Occitania is to be circumscribed within the city of Viasinde. The city, after days of bombardment by artillery and Napalm by the SRN forces, saw child soldiers appear on their battlefields. here is no precise number of victims in the city at the end of the conflict. Certainly high.

    This commission believes that the non-existent local Occitan resistance armed every human being capable of picking up a rifle in order to counter the SRN army. In support of this statement, the total absence of military documentation concerns the forced recruitment or otherwise of children in the Royal Occitan army."

    There was a minute of silence on the part of the PM to digest all these infformations, which the world knew, but he did not have the courage to tell them publicly, until now.

    A real injustice, in the general silence of the world, came just a few miles from our house. The world looked elsewhere while a people was exterminated. This is not a war, the war involves a clash between two armed forces and not the systematic murder of civilians.

    Today, W. Occitania intends to continue the extermination project of the Occitan population started during the war by the Republic of Serenniere. The Grand Duchy has a moral duty to try to stop this madness, which is why in the last few days sanctions have been imposed against the puppet government of W. Occitania and the puppet maker SRN.

    Our action, however, cannot end here, the faults of our fathers remind us that we must prevent this from happening again, today are the Occitans, and if tomorrow were the Gunnlanders?

    For this reason I officially call on all nations to join the Grand Duchy of Lars and impose sanctions against W. Occitania and SRN as well. Furthermore, I request that international observers be allowed to enter the Occitan Protectorate in order to conduct further independent investigations, the refusal could lead to more severe sanctions.


    What is the price of a man's life to the eyes of the Serenniere, I wonder.

    Sir, does your government not recognize the investigation carried by the Friulian NGO "Manusdèi"?

    Mr. President! Mr. President! isn't Lars worried of the growing split in the Tiburian sphere?

    "The investigation of the NGO Manusdèi did not take place in the territory of the Kingdom of Occitania and did not target the seven-day war."

    "There are no splits, denying the veracity of these documents would be counterproductive for all parties."

    "Ott Kuusik from the Radio-television Broadacting Corporation of Virumaa. It has always been said by the Serenien authorities that they have used weapons of mass destruction only after the Occitans have started a strategy of total war, pushing even children on the front. The question that is on everyone's minds is who actually started this whole descent into total war. Were the Occitans or were the Serenien?"

    "The Kingdom of Occitania has ordered the evacuation of women and children from Viasinde and other cities involved. The evacuation was delayed due to the total destruction of roads and bridges resulting from SRN's first missile attack. When the Republican forces surrounded the city and started the siege, the extraction was not yet complete. The resistance of the local armed forces in the defense of Viasinde and the increasing losses of SRN soldiers in an urban conflict led the SRN government to declare total war and use the Napalm on a city still full of civilians. Later, among the thousands of bodies that burned civilians and soldiers, the first and only cases of child soldiers were sighted. With a total absence of the chain of Occitan commando in Viasinde and under constant bombardment of artillery and napalm by SRN, the population found itself obliged to arms in order to defend itself.

    The children were used as bellboys for ammunition as well as being soldiers by their own choice.

    We can say that the same Occitan resistance, and the increasing number of victims of military SRN has led the government of the Republic of Serenniere to declare total war and consequently the use of monstrous weapons that have eliminated all humanity from the battlefields where they are been used."

    "I could not answer this question, I represent the interests of the people of Lars and of those who, in this case, cannot assert their rights as the victims of this "butchery" called the seven-day war. Perhaps you should address this question to the press office of the Kingdom of Justosia."

    "Yes. But perhaps Monsieur is familiar with the 'just war theory'? Some wars need be fought and won for the greater good. And wars will always have a human cost, no? Why are you addressing your questions to Serenierre and not the foreign imperialists such as Justosia and the Eiffellanders, who caused the war to begin with?"

    "I kindly invite you not to offend the intelligence of this institution.
    War is a construct of human nature, and as you well know, a conflict concerns two armies opposing each other on a battlefield. There may be civilian victims, but they are not in any way objective of attacks, retaliation or even considered enemies on a par with a soldier and for this reason victims of nerve gas and napalm. Would the use of these weapons already be absurd against an army, but even against the besieged population of the cities? In the eyes of the armed forces of the Republic of Serenniere, those men, women and children were little more than mice trapped and consequently exterminated them with gas and napalm. Now I ask you, is it the fault of Justosia's Imperialism or of the foreign policy of the Kingdom of Eiffilland if in those who know which office in Serenniere have decided to strike an entire Occitan people, eliminating it as if it were an infestation of Gaul-Germany? Is this our price?"

    Why calling for an investigation if he already knows everything?

    "Madame Prime Minister, the news that chemical weapons were tactically used in Occitania is a matter that has been quite well known since the days of the Seven Day War and I am curious as to why the Larsian Government chose to stay silent then? And secondly, the allegation that the West Occitanian administration is using its immigration policy to harm the Occitan peoples is serious. Does the PM have any proof or supporting evidence to that effect? Third, I am curious what are the sources of funding for the OSCR? Thank you."

    "The Grand Duchy has recently opened up to the international scene and the investigations took time. The tactical use of weapons provides for their limited use, the data say they have been widely used against civilian objects.

    This executive shares the alarm raised by the University of Lars regarding the immigration policy undertaken by the Protectorate. We also question the ability of the Protectorate to clean up all lands contaminated by the VX nerve agent. Reason why there could be victims even post-conflict.

    The funding of the OSCR takes place in a transparent manner that is in part equal from all the members who are part of it."

And in continuation to my third question, does the OSCR receive any state or taxpayer funding from the member-states of the organisation? Thank you."

    "Prime Minister Larci, my name is Roberta Rosa Hernandez, from La Prensa Libre. My question to you, and to the OCSR more broadly, may I ask why the OCSR has dedicated so much time and attention to the issue of the use of chemical weapons in Occitania during a time of war and allegations of war crimes against the Serenien, but has - to any public knowledge - yet to have opened an inquiry into any potential crimes committed by the Engellexic First Republic in the bombing of the West Engell Republic's embassy in Vesper which resulted in the deaths of five thousands soul stricken by a disease? While this attack predates the founding of OCSR, as it occurred in December of 2018, will the Larisians ignore the loss of those five thousand, innocent and sickly individuals in a time of peace and instead focus on the unfortunate decisions of countries made in a time of war?"

    "As I believe I have already said, the Regional Security and Cooperation Observatory does not function as a supranational police body. OCSR limits its independent work to the individual members who are part of it, which are the transparent financiers in a fair share. The organization can operate only in the member states which sign an international agreement. The member countries may submit cases to the OCSR, which will launch independent and transparent investigations to verify if there have been violations and will eventually present the report.

    The cases cited by you are currently outside the organization's jurisdiction, but this could be solved by the admission of one of the countries involved."

    Hernandez was scribbling on her notepad as quickly as possible.

    "Thank you, Prime Minister. Just to confirm - I wouldn't want to misquote - the Regional Security and Cooperation Observatory limits its functions to the member states while simultaneously calling upon the world at large to join with it in condemning the Serenien? If I may confirm, the member states are: the Kingdom of Eiffelland-Retalia, The Grand Duchy of Lars, and East Occitania - all three of which have expressed, in some degree, open hostility toward Serenierre?"

    "And just once more, for the record: OCSR will not open inquires into the Vesper Embassy bombing that cost 5,000 lives, it will not open inquires into whether or not the Post-Delegationist is funding terrorist activities in the Long Sea to provoke war amongst its nations, as Aurarians have proposed with ample evidence, nor will it open an inquiry into the ethnic cleansing occurring amongst the Yiddish peoples of Crotobaltislavonia, just over the border from Lars?"

    She paused.

    "In summary, am I incorrect in stating that OCSR will only concern itself with abuses committed against the countries which fund it, as we stated above: Eiffelland-Retalia, Lars, and East Occitania?"

    Regrettably we maintain that the results of our investigation into last year’s events will not be completed until our extended deadline of September. This investigation has covered health safety procedures, issues of human and sex trafficking, abuse of public trust through manipulation of the media, and complicated financial machinations.

    Although we are not prepared to publish a redacted public report, we would be willing to preview certain redacted findings that would protect the integrity of justice to vetted foreign diplomats or investigators at a secure location without the ability to record key evidence in our investigation.

    These events should and will remain separate from the investigation into Occitania.

    "The organization operates only within the member countries because the latter are signatories of an international agreement that obliges them, or rather invites them, to respect human rights. When and if the countries you mentioned will ever apply for membership of the OCSR, we will request an investigation into any possible ongoing violation or violation of human rights.

    The Grand Duchy of Lars does not conduct any hostility towards the people of Serenniere, but condemns the policies of its government."
