From the Desk of the Minister of Magic
My fellow witches and wizards,
I would like to express my deepest apologies for any questions or concerns each of you have had over the last few weeks. The Traditionalists have been plaguing Diagon Alley for several months. The Ministry of Magic has not been overly vocal regarding this group due to the ongoing investigation. In order to protect the investigation, the Ministry had to adopt a degree of secrecy.
However, I am delighted to announce that with the help of a special and elite group of DMLE individuals, The Traditionalists have been apprehended and all involved parties have been arrested pending a trial in front of the Wizengamot.
I would personally like to thank the Management of 54 Diagon Alley for turning over all the information they collected during the recent attack on their building.
I am also honored to awards special accommodations to Sarah McMillian, Neville Longbottom, and Susan Bones for their vital contributions to the investigation.
Finally, I would like to announce that the Ministry of Magic will be undergoing a reorganization in upcoming months. While we have made progress on our goal to better strengthen our community, we believe that there are still some who hold true to old dated ideas and beliefs. I vow that these individuals will be removed from the Ministry by the end of the year after all Ministry employees have been properly interviewed and investigated.
Again, I am truly sorry for the fears you've experienced over the last few months. I hope you can forgive my silence while we worked to put a stop to this group.
