The Civilian Review Board cleared Nimbus Station Executive Officer Mike-037 of all potential conflicts of interest with Solas Tempus or the Serenity Concord. The press release today heavily relied upon the investigation conducted by Special Agent Aadila Reza who has been assigned with several tasks of investigating recent issues presumed to be going on with the station. Her report cited that further psychological evaluations were recommended as a precaution, but no more than those recommended for all Temporal Operatives. The Reza further commented that according to the 8th Guarantee the officer could not be prosecuted, which made her investigation a simple matter of digging through available information and presenting with her opinion as a trained investigator on whether or not future resources should be spent on this issue. Fleet Admiral Thomas went on record as saying that the station XO has his total confidence on his ability to do his duties effectively but that he was pleased with the outcome. This revelation comes as a much needed balm to the recent trouble on the station, particularly with John and Takumi Angelos.
At this time Governor Maddox has not been available to comment. It is clear that Nimbus Station and its people are not out of the woods yet and still face many questions. The government prosecutor is said to be considering a maximum penalty in the case of Takumi Angelos should he be found guilty. An attorney has been appointed to defend the young man and has requested a formal psychological evaluation on the basis that his father claims the child has psychological problems that need to be managed rather than punished.
Takumi Angelos, son of John Angelos, has been arrested by Special Agent Aadila Reza on charges of attempted sexual assault. While Ms. Reza declined to comment on the ongoing investigation, John Angelos has been at the center of a rather disturbing accusation, where he is accused of having unlawful sexual relations with his adoptive daughter who is not yet of legal age of consent within the Concord. If the charges turn out to be true against the younger Angelos it could be used by the prosecution to paint a potential pattern of behavior for the family. Rumors have circulated for some time that Takumi Angelos is a bit of a wild-child having multiple partners, sometimes even on the same night. While that is not illegal and so far no other allegations of wrong-doing have surfaced it is not out of the range of possibility that the young man be facing more charges in the aftermath of one person willing to stand up for themselves.
Governor Maddox and Senator Murrika have both released a joint statement condemning the actions of Takumi Angelos and calling on the Civilian Oversight Board to exercise their right to order that John Angelos be removed from active duty. Their chief concern, according to the statement, is that he is in a direct conflict of interest. It is also of interest that Tobirama Angelos is currently in holding pending charges of assault against Jyn which could lead some to conclude that a strong tradition of violence against others runs through the family. Investigators will no doubt wish to talk to Itza Angelos next, where they may expect to find more evidence of a further pattern of violence.
The Governor’s office has also confirmed that it is considering charges of obstruction of justice against John Angelos who apparently attempted to convince SA Reza to release his son, on the suggestion that he would give up and allow himself to go to prison. While some may see that as a confession, he did not actually admit to wrong doing. In a partial copy of a private report sent by the Special Agent to the Governor’s office it states that John Angelos believes his son to be innocent on the grounds that it is SA Reza’s fault for expecting the young man to control himself. Such a sentiment has prompted serious concern among many levels of the government. It is expected that Fleet Admiral Thomas himself will have to respond to this incident with a stronger stance or risk seriously alienating his superiors who could, in theory, remove him from command as he personally brought John Angelos into the organization where he was appointed as chief of security of Nimbus Station. There are already calls from senators to consider removing him from command, which so far the Admiral has been able to rebuff based on his years of service.
