To the Summit and all those that read this message,
As of 22:10 New Eden Standard Time today, I can confirm that a capital squadron registered to the Expert Intervention private military company were engaged and destroyed above the fourth planet in the Tierijev system. A response group of Federation Navy, AEGIS and independent capsuleers were instrumental in bringing the unprovoked assault to a swift conclusion. I thank them all for their rapid response to the aggressors before they could have inflicted serious harm to the member states planetside.
Reports suggest that the Expert Intervention starships were carrying weaponised biological agents. An example of said agent recovered from the wreckage is in the process of being transferred to the Consultancy.
I would request that the Federal Navy or Federal Intelligence Office provide a point of contact to the independent capsuleer community for transfer of this evidence to their custody, in addition to any encrypted ship logs and data packets that were recovered. Furthermore, I would put the request out to those that may have recovered these items to submit them to the Federation as and when we are advised as to the correct means of doing so.
The Federation has an obligation to the Tierijev Member states to provide a full investigation into the events that transpired here, and to see if it is connected in any way to the criminal actions of the Crux Special Tasks Group in Girani-Fa for the benefit of Imperial observers and the ongoing de-escalation process on the Federal/Imperial borders.
For Liberty and Justice. Aionia Eleutheria.
