Gordon Davidz admits to memo
Director of the UNVCOCN "Point South" Mission, the man who pushed for independence of
Utania in April and May, Gordon Davidz, today admitted to authoring a confidential memo to
the UNVCOCN headquarters in Christianshaven, but denied it was the one published in Zeitgeist
Magazine two weeks ago.
Mr Davidz has been the leader of the UNVCOCN mission in "Point South" since the FRW &
GZE invasion of April 299, and pushed for the liberation of Utania from under UNV administration
earlier this year. However, he admits to authoring a confidential communiqué to the
UNVCOCN headquarters in early September telling the UNV about the "unstable position" Utania
was exhibiting, then asking for the UNV to consider options, including the re-establishment
of UNV administration.
However, in today's statement, Mr Davidz said the memo he sent to Christianshaven was
NOT the one published in Zeitgeist Magazine two weeks ago. He said the memo was far too
strong in its denunciation of Utania's political future, and he denies ever making the
recommendation of "re-occupation", saying it was "merely listed as an option under UNVCOCN
standard list of options." He also denied sending a list of "potential coup-masters".
Mr Davidz was at a loss to explain the Zeitgeist memo, and his recent efforts to find
a possible fraudulent author had been "significantly hampered by the absence of his UNVCOCN
staff in Utania". He said it was so similar to his sent memo that the author most certainly
had access to his sensitive data files in the UNVCOCN computer systems.
He also added that the UNVCOCN Headquarters rejected outright the notion of
re-establishing administration of Utania due to "issues of sovereignty and lack of support
from the two nations most involved in the original mission", referring to Whitlam and
Zartania. (Zartania has apparently already denied it would be involved in any such
"re-occupation" to the Utanian government.)
Mr Davidz said that he would be speaking with his superiors and with the new government
of Utania to seek to "clarify my future role in the 'Point South' mission". He once more
emphatically denied recommending "re-occupation" of Utania, and hoped that the UNV could
re-establish normalised relations with Utania quickly.
Mr Davidz said the original memo could not be published due to UNVCOCN security
The memo published in Zeitgeist two weeks ago resulted in the Luke-based UNVCOCN
mission being blockaded by protesters for several days, forcing a rescue by President Hope's
own diplomatic security force. Mr Davidz has remained at a secret location within Utania
since the rescue.
