“The Ministry is undergoing changes at the moment,”
These were the words of Mr Percy Weasley, former Junior Undersecretary to the Minister of Magic under Mr Cornelius Fudge, who stepped down recently from his position. Mr Weasley remained tight-lipped about several issues, refusing to comment. However, he was permitted to answer some questions. His only comments were as follows:
“With the recent revelations related to the current condition of He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named, Minister Fudge has stepped down from office. It has been a great honour to serve in his Ministry for the past two years, and an even greater honour to serve directly under him for the past year. Mr Fudge has provided me with the experience and opportunity to last me for my entire career. I look forward to serving the new Minister, appointed early this morning.”
Mr Weasley kept tight lipped about the current operations of the Ministry, only commenting that changes were being put in place. On the topic of his position as Junior Undersecretary, he commented that he was unsure whether or not he would be keeping his position. It is unclear how he feels on the issue, although he seemed to feel insecure. It is unknown how much Mr Weasley truly knows about Minister Scrimgeour’s plans for the Ministry.
It may be remembered that Mr Weasley was involved in the Crouch Scandal two years prior. When questioned about this, he became hesitant, leading several sources to believe that the issue may have some effect on his future in the Ministry of Magic. In fact, says one Ministry employee who wished to remain anonymous, “Mr Weasley has been known to be at the centre of problems in the past, namely the Crouch Scandal. He has a history of being unaware of the people around him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was asked to step down.” Mr Weasley would not comment on this.
Finally, Mr Weasley was asked about how his family was dealing with the recent revelations. He would not comment, and asked to be removed from the reporters’ presence. No further information is known at this time related to the topic.
