- The Chief Executive -
Executive Order 002
I am greatly troubled to inform you that we just successfully warded off the biggest regional security incident in years, and more or less by coincidence. It recently came to my attention that there may be an agent of a hostile region present in Spiritus. Upon investigation, this turned out to be true, but also not much of a danger. The person in question - who, by the way, had no reason to sneak in, they would have qualified for citizenship either way, which is probably why the security check didn't catch them - had managed to obtain citizenship at some point, but not more than that. At no point did they manage to gain entry to the SDF, the government, or had in any other way access to sensitive information. It appears that they had, for whatever reason, decided not to go forward with what they were up to.
But in the course of that investigation I came across an older citizenship application, which I had blocked because the applicant failed the security check. Standard procedure in those cases is to send them a PM and giving them a chance to explain any discrepancies and oddities... sometimes people look quite suspicious, but the only problem is with their internet/network/what have you. In this case I did not receive a response, so I did not take any further action.
In reviewing this and other recent applications, as well as created Free Spirit accounts that never filed an application, and nation movement in Spiritus, I found some odd patterns that warranted a closer look. I cannot give details, on the very reasonable request of some people who assisted me with this, but suffice it to say that there are people out there who apparently have decided to give Spiritus some grief. Not so much for strictly ingame reasons, but rather because some people here are not held in very high esteem in certain less reputable corners of Spiritus. Many of us are very good at what we do, and very quick to put those skills to good use to counter those who seek to make NS their own playground, where they can create and destroy at will. Also, we have always been swift in reacting to all manner of interregional incidents, and to stand with our friends and allies whenever necessary.
It has further garnered some attention that our Delegate Salaxalans has now been in office for five continuous years. While attacking a region with an active founder is not generally recommended or a good idea, it doesn't mean that some wouldn't try simply to break such a streak. And some organizations certainly have the right combination of manpower and disgust for Spiritus.
In reaction to this kaleidoscope of threats I hereby make the following executive orders:
1) No one is to be admitted into the SDF without a second security check performed by a qualified administrator. Anyone seeking any form of office in Spiritus will also attract a repeat security check.
2) The following people are hereby declared Persona Non Grata:
- Xhakhaslovakia, of TBH
- Syberis, of Osiris
- Neo Kervoskia, of Osiris
Proscribed regions and organizations:
- The Black Hawks
- Lone Wolves United
4) The penalty for treason, until otherwise legislated or amended, is a ban for not less than three months and not more than 18 months, or an indefinite ban, as the Citizens' Assembly or a properly appointed hearing officer may direct; or in the alternative administrative removal and ban from the region if required and justified to prevent immediate danger.
