Peace minister faces jail
Political analyst Jerwyn Gooson reports
Anhur Senate member Allan Poltroon, who ran for election on a hugely-successful 'let's just be nice to one another' campaign, was arrested this morning by CIS agents in connection with an arms-smuggling ring. Poltroon seems heavily implicated in a cartel which supplied several pirate bands with modern weaponry in return for a percentage of the marauders' loot. The CIS became suspicious when they noticed Poltroon was named as a director of weapons giant KriskArms, despite his overtly pacifistic stance. If convicted, Poltroon could face up to 30 years imprisonment.
