DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CINNAMON CREEK (DM) – Horatio Eden, Minister of Justice and Development in the Democratic Republic of Cinnamon Creek, was allegedly arrested last night on charges of treason and insulting and defaming the DRCC/General Secretary, as well as on suspicion of “malicious behaviour” counter to DRCC interests.
Eden denies the charges, which he condemned as painfully “transparent” in personal correspondence as being in retaliation for the Eden, Saltborn and McCarthy v Langford case that is currently shaping up to take place some time next month, especially when told that he does “not have the right to sue anyone in DRCC until the trial is over”.
It is also reported that Kit McCarthy and Anders Saltborn, two of the other co-plaintiffs in the case against Langford, were also arrested.
Eden has declined to comment extensively, though he has expressed his intention to the Daily Micronational to resign from the Ministry of Justice and Development and to eventually revoke his citizenship of the DRCC once the situation has come to a conclusion.
The Supreme Court of Whestcorea, one of the judiciaries where charges against Langford have been filed, maintained that this is likely entirely irrelevant. “First of all, charges have already been filed against Mr. Langford, prior to this arrest taking place – and, as far as international law, this revocation of the “right to sue anyone in DRCC until the trial is over” is not legally binding on the Whestcorean justice system.” It went on to maintain that an extradition request had been filed with the Mcarthian Government, where Langford is a citizen.
The Mcarthian and Latitudian governments have yet to comment.
