DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CINNAMON CREEK – The MicroWiki community at large has convened on the forum to express concern at the conduct of Universal Triumvirate Major Executive Lancelot Rice.
Rice, who is slated to soon be Chancellor pending an overhaul of the Triumvirate’s constitution and legal code, has announced that he and General Secretary Dallin Langford are currently collaborating on a rehashed version of the current DRCC Constitution. Mr. Rice remarked in a forum thread regarding the Eden v Langford case (now resolved) that any “international person” who wanted to appeal a decision made by the Supreme Court of the DRCC (which he now refers to as the “Republic of Cinnamon Creek”) would, following the passage of the new constitution be able to appeal to the UT Supreme Court as the court of last resort.
This was met with concern, most notably by the General Secretary himself, who seemingly unhappily opined to the Ragged Flagon Skype chat group that “I feel that it is essentially giving partially away the international sovereignty that a nation contains such as DRCC”.
Through this process, Major Executive Rice has seemingly made an adversary in the Emperor of Zenrax. Despite commenting in the Ragged Flagon that “I really don’t hate him at all, nor do I particularly dislike him at a personal level”, the Emperor’s response to Mr. Rice’s actions was singularly unequivocal.
“I would appreciate a thorough explanation for your apparent actions, as it has become painfully obvious that neither the plaintiff nor the DRCC had given consent to these measures before you apparently executed them,” he argued, before adding something of a sting: “as an ally of the DRCC, if we believe that you are attempting anything to jeopardize their inherent rights, there may be ramifications from Zenrax and the DRCC’s other allies.”
The Emperor was not the only respondent; the President of Mcarthia, Kit McCarthy, also expressed distaste for the move, describing it in his eyes as “a blatant infringement of the DRCC’s sovereignty” and referred to the initiative as a whole as a cause for concern. “I’m more concerned that your book of law writes you in as President for the next 80 years, but…” came the rejoinder, a reference to the article of the Maelternt, the legal compendium of Mcarthia, making McCarthy president for the remainder of his life.
The Triumvirate State Department has yet to respond to the Emperor’s most recent comment as of press time.
