BREAKING NEWS! Criminal suit filed against Matthew Vasroixe!
Over the past few weeks, Matthew Vasroixe, who has become famous, or infamous, take your pick, throughout the micronational world because of his native Avalonia's controversial formation as an alternative to the Republic of Lavalon and subsequent conflict with Antica. No one has been able to quite figure out, or at least agree on, what happened and whose fault it is. A number of people have blamed President Vasroixe for stirring up trouble. Recently, the Lavalonian government has added another twist to the story by suing Mr. Vasroixe in the Criminal Court of Lavalon.
Carson Smith, a well-known and well-liked political figure in Lavalon and the Chancellor of Lavalon's General Assembly, ran up the steps to the Criminal Court and delivered a single sheet of paper to the court clerk just minutes before the Court closed for the day at 7:00 P.M. U.S. Central Standard Time (G.M.T.-6). The paper was a petition to the Court for the government's suit against Vasroixe to be heard, and briefly outlined the allegations against the Avalonian president and former Lavalonian citizen.
The government alleges that Mr. Vasroixe applied for citizenship under the "paper doll" of "Andy Child," thus violating Lavalon's One Person Act 2005. It even suggests that Vasroixe was attempting to infilitrate the Lavalonian government. "All the while, defendant continued to maintain identity of Matthew Vasroixe, thus holding two identities," Smith wrote in the filing.
We caught up to Chancellor Smith as he left the courthouse, but he refused to comment. "At this point, information is not being disclosed outside of the government. But we do have evidence and will fight to have the defendant convicted."
It is also worth noting that the prosecution has not requested a jury trial, and thus, unless the defense requests a jury trial, the case will be heard and a verdict and sentence rendered by Lavalonian Chief Justice Nathan Shepard, who has proven himself to be an opponent of Vasroixe in recent debates.
