Sirius Black - An Innocent Man
Sirius Black, presumed to be one of the most murderous and dangerous wizards on the face of this planet, has been found innocent of the crimes that he was previously impisoned for. Peter Pettigrew, the crazed death eater, was found guilty for crimes formerly attributed to one Sirius Black after the Ministry interrogated Pettigrew only hours ago.
The horrendous event that happened some sixteen years ago - a massive explosion resulting in a dozen muggle's deaths and the supposed death of Peter Pettigrew - was instead caused by Peter Pettigrew and not Black. A single finger was found after the explosion, confirming the belief that Pettigrew was dead. In fact, the man had escaped through indetermined means - leaving Black to take the wrongful blame.
The Ministry of Magic have assumed that Black is dead by now, as he has not been seen for many months. "This is a message to the entire wizarding community - and if need be, the muggle community. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Sirius Black, please contact the Ministry of Magic through owl or the floo network. Black is innocent. I repeat, Black is innocent." Cornelius Fudge announced, before having to leave rather hurriedly as a Percy Weasley quickly informed him of an urgent matter residing within the Department of Mystery - as heard by this reporter.
At the present time, Peter Pettigrew is being kept in a cell within the Ministry of Magic for further observation for a brief period of time before his inevitable transfer to Azkaban. Pettigrew, as an anonymous source says, still quite crazed.
