Romanian Liberation Cooperative

reported by Anna Weezles

The Romanian Liberation Association has changed its name to the Liberation of Romania Cooperative, since the numerous negative Ministry references to their coalition had people thinking the A in RLA stood for Army. The LRC has asked that we make clear the point that they are the ones pushing for talks, not the Romanian Ministry.
In the past week, three groups have openly supported the LRC: the Society for the Support of Squibs, the Society for the Reformation of Hags, and the Society for the Tolerance of Vampires. Each have written in to the Prophet to express their appreciation for all the LRC is and has been doing for the welfare of their respective kinds.
In other news, the tiny country of Liechtenstein joins Moldova, Slovenia, Mont Negro, and The Former Yugoslavia Republic of Macedonia in withdrawing from the ICW until the Romanian Ministry is held accountable for its actions.

Rebuttal to letter to editor

By Anna Weezles

Despite what the anonymous respondent has argued in their letter, I have significant proof that his or her accusations are patently false. Raising an army of werewolves and vampires? I am certain there are many of you in the wizarding world who have had relatives fall prey to lycanthropy or vampirism. Would you wish to see them tortured or killed for being the victims they are? I have personally interviewed a muggle boy of fifteen - one of Greyback's last victims - who, thanks to the RLA, managed to escape death at the hands the Ministry. His story is tragic. Being a muggle, he did not have the ability to use magic to aid in his own escape. The RLA were in the process of escorting him to safety via the floo network, when members of the Romanian Ministry caught them and locked them in two separate covert holding cells. In these secret cells, such unfortunates are tortured at length before being executed. Another member of the RLA who was aware of the attempt to rescue the boy, managed to slip in through another fireplace in the network and rescue both. After this incident, the Ministry quickly shut the floo network down.
Additionally, although I cannot reveal my sources, I have seen wizarding photographs of emaciated dragons with broken wings caged just behind the Romanian Ministry headquarters. My sources have also revealed to me that talks are underway between the Ministry and the ICW, and RLA to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict without anyone being harmed.
