FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ATTN CONCORD DIRECT ENFORCEMENT DIVISION
The Eredan Light Horse General Staff has approved, for immediate execution, a system-wide interdiction, blockade, and asset seizure operation inside the Eredan System. This operation has been designated “RECLAMATION OF EREDAN”
Following unsettling news reports of system high tax’s and disrepair of facilities within the Eredan system, ELH military commanders have deemed the over taxation of Eredan citizens and neglect of facilities a direct violation of the Eredan business accord of the Second Minmatar, Amarr war, and requires a full retaliatory response.
All civilian vessels and non-combatant capsuleers are hereby ordered to avoid the Eredan system, as it is now designated a war zone. Any declared vessel we are at war with entering the system, regardless of military value, equipment load out, weapons configuration, or security status, will be targeted and destroyed by Eredan Light Horse combat patrols.
Once the system perimeter is secured, all planetary customs offices currently in orbit will be re-appropriated by the Eredan Light Horse militia on behalf of the Amarr Empire or forcibly dismantled as required. New customs offices will be re-constructed as needed in order to re-establish normal commerce as required by policy and law…
A humanitarian corridor will be established to assist all non-combatant populations onboard the three Eredan stations and on the colony worlds inside the system. Food, medicine, and basic housing materials will be deposited on-site at regular intervals. Our goal here is not collateral damage, but to secure the system and prevent any military access by the Minmatar or their forces. The Chief Executive Panel must be made to understand their reckless warmongering will do nothing but hurt their own cause.
ELH will coordinate with the Amarr Empire and the 24 Imperial Crusade corporation to execute this operation. Updates and addenda to this declaration will be posted to this thread.
Executor Legatus Gorgon
