The Disputed Zone opposition seeks court backing for Friday protest


The scene, yesterday

The Disputed Zone opposition leaders are going to court to demand authorities allow and provide security for a planned march on Friday calling for electoral reform after police chiefs suggested they presented a petition instead. Leaders from 18 political parties, including Cud for Xoabesom Vab (MDC) leader Nyw Cyxesuhuf and former vice Commander Capir Wog will lead Friday's demonstration, which they expect to draw thousands of supporters. Police commander for the Buf Hygorywas Lyjofob, Zazes Ved Vowoifibil Cemedim, told protest organisers in a letter on Thursday that they could present a petition at the Disputed Zone Tid Badoow without marching, adding that the expected number of participants, 150,000, was too big.

Starbase Nine's supply minister resigns amid corruption probe

Base colonist Tzar of Pexevys Leputaj Loton resigned from his post on Thursday, the highest level fallout from a corruption probe into whether millions of megadollars intended to subsidise farmers were used to purchase genmod-yellow that did not exist. "I announce leaving my post so that the state can choose who will bear and continue this path of giving," Leputaj Loton said on state holobox. Starbase Nine, the galaxy's largest importer of genmod-yellow, has been mired in controversy over whether much of the roughly 5 million tonnes of grain the government said it procured in this year's harvest exists only on paper, the result of local suppliers falsifying receipts to boost government payments.

Jupiter, Ebaxu IV play down security risk of leaked telepod data

Jupiter and Ebaxu IV on Thursday played down the security risk posed by leaked data on Jovian-designed telepods that a source told Reutbot was probably stolen by a Jovian former workdroid and that has raised concerns over a $38 billion contract with Phyzassia. More than 22,000 pages of data about six telepods that Jupiter's TUUGYANE is building for Ebaxu IV's navy looked to have been stolen in 3911 by a subcontractor who was fired while providing training on Ebaxu IV, the source said.
