Meeting at the D.O.I.

Who: Callie, Julian, Jack and all those that signed up here
What: A secured meeting at the D.O.I... Things get rolling towards Import action against Skrulls and Vulcanu
When: Thursday, 6pm
Warnings: None?
Notes: Assume your characters have been contacted by either Callie, Julian, and Jack prior to the meeting- pin pointing their interest in helping with Import support and taking down Vulcanus. Any questions just PM Brakish.



Callie waited as the Imports they had contacted filed in to the conference room. She glanced over the room, giving a nod to her assistant who closed the door. Clearing her throat, Callie stepped to the head of the conference table.

"Thank you for coming tonight. As you all should know by now... we have communicated with you due to our attempt to rallying an Import committee to finally take a stand against the organizations that threaten us and in effect, the natives that live here. The D.O.I. has been continuously running an investigation since the last major clusterfuck. We've run across a couple leads... but the trick here being most activity we are seeing is happening over seas."

Callie gave a nod, projecting a map onto the screen behind her.

"Here you see our biggest lead-- As you can see, there's some activity in England..Skrull related. Our guy in question is the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs-- Craig Williamson." She clicked to a picture of the fellow in question.

"He's fairly public, incredibly vocal about immigration restrictions, and thought fairly highly of by his government. As the Import population rose in number, he called for stronger border control. It was to the surprise of no one that he became one of the earliest supporters of the ImBargo Act, and was one of its strongest champions in the British Cabinet. His role in securing the necessary support for the Act in the Cabinet as well as within Parliament itself cannot be overstated. A popular and trusted Foreign Secretary, he is viewed on the whole as having the country’s best interests at heart, even though the ImBargo Act itself has always been a subject of controversy."

She stepped ahead. "Support for Mr Williamson suffered a marked decline after ImPorts were attacked in Venezuela by Vulcanus. Mr Williamson has given fewer press interviews over recent months, though his stance on ImBargo remains as firm as ever, and he rarely comments on protests against the Act from other quarters except to restate his own position."

She shook her head. "As you can probably guess, we need to confirm him as a possible Skrull, which requires deeper investigation.... which means infiltrating the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as agency workers. If there is corruption, it'll be found in their filing systems-- particularly evidence that Williamson's policies represented a marked change from his predecessor's. Involvement with Vulcanus will be found by way of his private office, no doubt. Records, diaries, and expenses will be telling."
professorlionface: (Sounds questionable)

Hank stood before asking his question, knitting his fingers together. "If we're hoping to infiltrate his office, our people will need to first be in the country. You have a plan to bypass the scanners at customs, I hope?"
professorlionface: (Our little secret.)

He settled back a little, crossing his arms. "You actually managed to gain a diplomatic audience in a country that would normally have legislatively barred your presence outright?" He looked more than a little impressed.

"I actually have no alternative to offer, but I could have tried if there was a need. Though it would be difficult to construct a jammer for a device that I have no working example for the mechanics that need to be counteracted." That would have been important, if it were to come to that. The only other way he could manage it was to go full spectrum, and if that worked then all of the other things it would also jam would raise too many eyebrows.

Hank shrugged modestly. "I dabble. Hardly a hacker on the level of Tony Stark, or even Kitty Pryde, but I know how to make a computer work for me and whatever project I'm running. I can be fairly adept with code."
professorlionface: (Blah blah blah.)

"One thing I can certainly code is tech. I'm formidable with software, but hardware's more my specialty. I'm sure we'll have some need of equipment here."
