RE: Urgent Matter of Concern – Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive Attacks on Industry in Caldari Sovereign Space
My name is Ravi Srivasian, and I am the CEO of SESPS, an independent corporation serving the Orpana Constellation of The Forge region of Caldari sovereign space. SESPS operates peaceful mining, industrial, and market freeports in the systems of Eruka and Uchoshi. Our clients are independent capsuleers from multiple alliances and corporations. I took over the corporation in July of this year after its founder, Winston Burnkill, chose to step down and return to employment with the Caldari State’s State War Academy. Although I myself was born in Amarrian space, I have ensured that the essential Caldari nature of our corporation continues under its new leadership. We provide jobs and employment benefits to more than 45,000 Caldari citizens in the Orpana constellation. Moreover, we proudly follow our “Hire Local” protocol to prioritize hiring State citizens who are native to the region we serve.
Over the past two days, our refinery in the Eruka system has been attacked without warning by capsuleers from the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive [I-RED]. I have made multiple inquiries to the purported leader of this organization asking for an explanation as to why a Caldari State-aligned entity is attacking a peaceful commercial enterprise that serves to improve the economic output of the Orpana Constellation of the State’s sovereign space. (The only reply I received was from the fleet commander, who stated that he was merely the person in charge of combat operations and that he had forwarded my inquiry to his leadership.)
The reason I am bringing this matter to your attention is because yesterday, after a brief battle with a fleet emerging from an anomalous wormhole in the Eruka system, the I-RED forces again attacked the freeport refinery in Eruka, destroying the station’s shield defenses. But this time, instead of a singular force of I-RED capsuleers aggressing our holdings, the attacking force consisted of an allied fleet of Electus Matari [EM], Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive, and Khimi Harar [LUMEN] pilots (among other known pirate groups) flying together using Electus Matari doctrine Minmatar battleships.
I am writing to you to alert you to the fact that I-RED appears to be violating a direct order from the Ishukone Corporation to refrain from allying with Electus Matari.
So far, our safety protocols have prevented the loss of life of any of our employees. However, I wanted to alert you to this event as soon as possible in case I-RED or its terrorist allies in Electus Matari and LUMEN take any actions hostile to Ishukone Corporation or other Caldari State interests and holdings.
