FSIB

It turns out that FSIB has been doing nothing for some time, apart from receiving money; the director Mr Luc Pálssœn (Yukland) explained that FSIB hasn't invested in any social programs because it was waiting for policy approval by the General Assembly and that the bank is saving money for future use. Mr Pálssœn claims that the money FSIB received was applied for the benefit of the organisation and for future use; lending the money to several countries without any guarantee of social usage is not the purpose of the bank, according to him. Several delegations disagree with him and claim that the support of social projects within the member states is the aim of the bank. Under the previous director, Mr Germain Karg (Île de Romanhe), investments were however made. The Voskian delegation proposed a full audit of FSIB to see what is going on, but only half of the delegations agreed to this motion, claiming that saving money is not why FSIB exists. Questions are asked why Mr Pálssœn is waiting for the GA to develop a policy, and why the GA hasn't checked on its organisations more often; if the latter had happened, this situation would have been discovered sooner. The delegations of MAS and Île de Romanhe threaten to withdraw their contribution to the bank if there will be no investigation.

The following motions are filed:
1a). MAS moves to investigate the functioning of FSIB and its director, Mr Pálssœn.

    • In favour: MAS, Île de Romanhe, Voskia, New Courland
    • Against: Pannonia, Amargo, Guelphia, Yutyrama
    • Abstains: Adzhatia, Harrawi, Kaupelan, Yukland, Tarmorya

1b). Yutyrama moves to investigate the functioning of FSIB (but not its director).

    • In favour: Pannonia, Amargo, Guelphia, Yutyrama
    • Against: MAS, Île de Romanhe, Voskia, New Courland
    • Abstains: Adzhatia, Harrawi, Kaupelan, Yukland, Tarmorya

The first vote - to decide which of these motions would be put to the vote - ended in a tie. The chairwoman, Ms Shonshuu, broke it by voting for 1a:
1). MAS moves to investigate the functioning of FSIB and its director, Mr Pálssœn.

    • In favour: New Courland, Voskia, Adzhatia, MAS, Île de Romanhe
    • Against: Amargo, Yutyrama, Yukland, Tarmorya, Guelphia
    • Abstains: Pannonia, Harrawi, Kaupelan

Another tie, so the chairwoman votes in favour. The motion is accepted.

2). Adzhatia moves to investigate the relation between FICT and its organisations.

    • In favour: Adzhatia, Guelphia, Yutyrama, Kaupelan, New Courland, MAS, Harrawi
    • Against: Amargo, Île de Romanhe, Yukland, Tarmorya, Voskia
    • Abstains: Pannonia

The motion is accepted.
