The following serves as a public press release regarding the legal status of existing warclone holdings present in Skarkon.
As per CONCORD policy via the Directive Enforcement Department’s Mercenary Infomorph Act of YC115 all warclones are entitled to the right to fight as independents on behalf of sovereign militias. Furthermore, it entitles warclones to privileged legal status as sovereign independent political entities similar to capsuleers. The Bosena Accords, just as CONCORD-sanctioned corporations and alliances, can therefore be broadly defined collectively as a free-association confederacy of independent sovereign entities and has the same inalienable right to uphold the independence of its constituent clans and their respective holdings.
By this ruling planetary districts held by warclones at the invitation of the Thukker Tribe and the approval of the Tribal Assembly (“The Tribal Assembly supports the rights of the Thukker Tribe to do with their territories as they please. We are currently satisfied with the situation in Molden Heath.") should rightfully be considered free territory leased indefinitely to an independent political entity at the discretion of the Thukker Tribe. As the Thukker Tribe has yet to revoke these claims issued to the warclone community and deemed the situation on Skarkon “not a matter for Great Caravans” the current status of the five planetary districts of Skarkon II relinquished for warclone settlement must continue to be considered under lease by right of gift under tacit acceptance procedure qui tacet consentire videtur in accordance with international law. We assert that the Bosena Accords remains the sole apparent successor to the warclone clans of Molden Heath capable of inheriting the mantle of these planetary districts. Therefore we lay rightful claim to the five planetary warclone districts of Skarkon II. Should any warclone clans arise that can prove a legitimate claim to these districts we would be happy to compensate you for the territory, or seek independent arbitration upon your return to Skarkon.
Beyond Right of Gift the Bosena Accords cites the following claims to the territory in accordance with international law:
Right of Conquest-- Warclone Territory on Skarkon previously occupied by criminal warlord clans have been eliminated and their facilities garrisoned in the early stages of Operation Galatine by Bosena Accords pathfinder units or absorbed into the Bosena Accords under the Round Table Assembly trade union congress. (Note: Right of Conquest is a commonly accepted and valid method of conflict resolution internally within the warclone community.)
Right of Lost, Mislaid, and Abandoned Property—Before Bosena Accords garrison of these districts, several remained abandoned in a state of disrepair following the removal of the original warclone occupants after the end of the Warlord Uprising. Since their discovery, this territory has remained occupied and maintained by the Bosena Accords. By common law, possessor of a piece of abandoned property is generally considered the rightful owner without evidence to the contrary by another party. By comparison the Thukker have long since abandoned the territory (with much of the land prior to warclone settlement remaining undeveloped and unoccupied) and are incapable of reasonably reclaiming this land following Skarkon’s assimilation into Krai Svarog.
Right of Adverse Possession—While the Thukker clan originally held claim to the land and we hope to continue to maintain positive relations with the Great Caravans, in the event of legal arbitration over the ownership of these districts it is our firmly held belief that we are capable of meeting the requirements of continuous, hostile, open and notorious, actual, and exclusive ownership of the property to prove de jure claim under adverse possession doctrine.
Right of Accession—As the original settlers of the uninhabited districts across Molden Heath gifted by the Thukker clan, the warclone clans of the Bosena Accords hold indisputable right to the land due to the value present in the territory built through their labour, as well as the vast raw materials surveyed by warclone pioneers.
Furthermore, I wish to affirm that all orbital structures including the five orbital customs offices, orbital dockyard, production facility, and warclone refuge citadel within Skarkon are by right integral core Bosena Accords territory similar to capsuleer starships and empire-affiliated capital ship vessels under naval law.
We the warclone clans of Skarkon maintain clear and irrefutable de jure claim to this property, and hereby collectively designate the Round Table Assembly of the Bosena Accords as the central government to represent the interest of all independent, sovereign warclone entities present here. In accordance, the Grand Litigation / Administration Team of the Bosena Accords hereby proclaims that all Bosena Accords affiliated orbital structures as well as the five warclone districts of Skarkon II shall hereby stand as the independent and free confederacy of “Avalon” administered by the Round Table Assembly.
