Senate Meeting on Corucsant Interupted by Kidnapping

December 6, 2011

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide attended a Galactic Senate meeting on Coruscant that was also attended by an envoy from Hutt space. While several matters were brought and being brought to the attention of the senators, chancellor, and guests, the session had to be postponed because of an emergency call, indicating a Senator’s aide from Tanaab had been kidnapped and GAR forces had deployed to who they thought was in possession of her.

Republic Senate Building

Coruscant: The Chancellor Baccus Altus presided over a Republic Senate meeting where several matters were being brought forth. The meeting was also of significance because Shaka the Hutt attended to discuss matters with the Senate. Also present, senators Muuonigar of Coruscant, Nasaji Oba of Tython along with acting senators Advisor Marsh Solo of Yavin 4 and Advisor Neren Valis of Dantooine as well as several others, several Jedi, and members from the GAR providing security.

After the session start a few preliminary matters were discussed such as the naming of new suspects in relation to the recent bombing on Tython and Yavin 4, whereby Tiali Berus was already found guilty. The Senator from Tython said a new suspect, Nharga Zinn was be sought as an accessory to the bombings.

Senators preparing for discussions and votes

The first major vote was to determine who was to take the Vice-Chancellor position. With most of the votes in from the Senators or their advisor, it looked like Senator Muuonigar of Coruscant was the favorite to take the position. However, absent from the vote was the Taanab senator, Kayla Meena. As her office was being contacted, word came in about a kidnapping that had occurred on Taanab. From information coming in though it was the Senator’s aide Teena Farlance that had instead been kidnapped.

After a recording had been played for the senators and advisors on the kidnapping it was determined that Farlance was being held on Nar Shaddaa. Hutt envoy, Shaka the Hutt and his majordomo Morrigan were asked about the matter. Shaka indicated that he was informed of the kidnapping earlier and that the kidnapper who had taken Farlance originally to be a slave had reconsidered his position and had looked for a neutral party to hand his prisoner over. Shaka confirmed that she was indeed being transported to Nar Shaddaa to receive medical care and that he had made a report to the Chancellor earlier and that the aide was to be released to the Republic after she rested.

However the situation became critical as word came in that Republic forces including Jedi and troopers from the GAR had taken it up on themselves to rescue the aide from Nar Shaddaa acting on the assumption that she was still kidnapped. At this time the Senate meeting was postponed and a Republic envoy, consisting of several senators, the chancellor, and senate advisors left with Shaka the Hutt to Nar Shaddaa to handle the situation.

On Nar Shaddaa the situation had turned somewhat chaotic as forces from different factions engaged each other, though order was finally brought and the Senator’s aide handed over to the Republic envoy who immediately returned her Taanab safely. This only illustrated the delicate situation between the Republic and its allies against the Hutts and theirs. Hopefully cool heads will prevail over the violence.

On the streets of Coruscant later as the senate meeting was being rescheduled, several things were discussed. Shaka the Hutt spoke his mind with Coruscant advisor Master Panelope Vella about the unauthorized overstepping of Republic forces and GAR forces into Hutt space. The advisor and senator from Coruscant too it in advisement.

The Hutt will also prepare a speech to give in front the Senate once it meets again. Other talk revolved around recent attempts at kidnapping, violence throughout the Galaxy, and strained relationships between Galactic factions. Hopefully these issues can be addressed at the next meeting also.

    Ah yes, the Tanaab issue. I am a little as to where the republic got the idea their aide would be harmed. As I have said before we very rarely eat people, as this should have proven. And yet the jedi sprang to action as if the foundations of the republic were under attack. I find it ironic they were more likely to attack hutt space than ever they were, oh say, the yuuzhan vong.

    Though, this will not stop me from continuing my work, i will do my best for the best of Taanab, especially in the absence of the senator, and while she’s present, i will do my best as an advisor to help her

    I have a simple question…after whole this chaos of kidnapping the Taanab advisor,was made any search or inquiering to identify the kidnapper and to reveal THE TRUE IDENTITY of the person who ordered this “operation”?
