Ishuk-Raata Public Statement

>> Planet V - Moon 4 - Ishukone Corporation Factory // Field Office of the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive


Greetings Summit,

As detailed by the following news broadcast, Ishukone corporate sovereignty has once again been breached by the Caldari Provincial Directorate. The continuing violations of corporate and contract law by the CPD are considered very disturbing by Ishuk-Raata. We therefore would like to restate our full support of CEO Mens Reppola in his protest of these actions, and urge Executor Heth to step back from this game of brinkmanship.

Ishuk-Raata, however, will not support violent actions taken by the CPD against Caldari people. The Caldari Navy's activities remain beyond the purview of Ishuk-Raata or Ishukone. We will not presume to question the motives of the Navy, nor demand information we do not have clearance for. Nevertheless, Ishuk-Raata can no longer support the blatant violations of law against the Caldari people committed under direct CPD orders by the Caldari Navy and associated entities.

We understand the Navy must defend the State against all threats both foreign and domestic, and we recognize the Navy's long tradition of upholding this noble duty even when the act is hard to swallow. Unfortunately, we cannot and will not take part in this.

As of YC115.02.09 03:22, the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive has withdrawn our offer support to the Caldari Navy and Marines for any and all operations being taken against Caldari sovereign or occupied worlds and theaters.

The continued use of Templis Dragonaurs, known terrorists, against corporate property and citizens is unacceptable. The continued violations of corporate sovereignty and law is unacceptable. The continued mockery of inter-corporate law is unacceptable.

That being said, Ishuk-Raata will not support the use of violent dissent. Attacks made against any Caldari - whether CPD, Navy, Corporate, or otherwise - is unacceptable. Disapproval of CPD policy is not an excuse for treason or murder. Many fine men and women serve in these capacities, and do not deserve your hatred or attacks. There are still proper legal channels to be taken, and should be observed and respected. Withdraw your support, launch legal proceedings, even speak out against the Executor if you must... but do not attack your fellow Caldari.

Ishuk-Raata will remain in service to Ishukone Corporation, following the laws and rights afforded to us as citizens of Ishukone. We will also make use of our extrajudicial abilities as capsuleers to do what must be done in defense of Ishukone and Ishuk-Raata property, as well as exercise these abilities in selective support of the Caldari Navy.

Thank you for your time.

Pulling out all the stops I see. It's going to make some waves and cause some consequences you know? I doubt they'll let you just get away with it. I also hope for the best for you.

As of three hours ago, Mixed Metaphor became aware that State-loyal ground military forces are operating on Intaki Prime. This is a direct violation not only of a sovereign Federation homeworld, but a ratified agreement between State megacorporations as dictated in the Ishukone Agreement, which was chartered for the specific purpose of keeping Intaki Prime's people and governments insulated from the danger of interference by foreign political entities or military action on the planet's surface. The current action by State military assets on Intaki not only represents violence against the Intaki Assembly, it represents a violation of State corporate sovereignty.

Heth, clearly no longer satisfied with merely urinating on the laws and customs of the State has decided that he's going to do the same with the laws he himself made up as well.

Although our loyalties and goals differ significantly, we appreciate I-RED's stance on this matter. Mixed Metaphor calls upon the CEP for a swift resolution to this situation.

As an individual, I commend I-RED's expedient and straightforward response to these unexpected events. I will pray that you continue to be governed by wisdom and courage in these precarious times and your dedication to serving the Caldari people and upholding your honor toward the Intaki and your contracts is admirable.

I second Msr. Khross's sentiment. Moral fortitude and personal integrity in the face of adversity are to be admired, even in foes.

Again I cannot fathom Heth's madness, he originally claimed to want to return the Caldari to its Golden Age of Tradition...how far he has turned from that, he from my eyes is nothing but a lunatic who has to much power.

I fully Support I-REDS stance on this matter..if it is one more voice against Heth then it is one more voice towards his removal.

At bloody last. A Caldari entity that remains Caldari. A reasoned, calm and wise response. A bit too far left and liberal for my personal tastes, but at least this can be respected as Caldari at least. Such a pity it's the only one of the responses so far that stays loyal.

Personally, I believe the fact that the invasion per se of Intaki V is far more important than these political games. A planet that has never known war has been aggressed against. It is a shame that the deaths brought about by this invasion is being used as a board piece in wider questions of legalities and jurisdictions.

War is merely the continuation of politics by other means, Msr Inhonores. Why should any one planet in particular be spared?

Let my people return Home and put an end to this nonsense.

For the first time since I started the conversation, he looks me dead in the eye. In his gaze are steel jackhammers, quiet vengeance, a hundred thousand orbital bombs frozen in still life.

Without venturing any opinion, I do have a number of questions that arise from this statement. Perhaps Oniseki-haani would be so kind as to answer them? My questions are as follows:

1) Does the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive have evidence that the current Caldari Navy operations are being executed on the direct orders of the Executor or the Caldari Providence Directorate? Or is this merely an inference?

2) Has the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive been asked to take part in any of the ongoing Caldari Navy operations, including police actions?

3) Which corporate laws does the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive allege have been violated by the Caldari Providence Directorate?

Our legal team has advised the Ishuk-Raata Department of Public Relations to refrain from answering your question at this time.

I urge the citizens of the State to listen to these words. Do not let hatred guide your actions, doing so will only create more unnecessary bloodshed and further the goals of those who would seek to harm our great nation.

It's remarkable that this even has to be said. There are a hundred viewpoints that can provide valid complaints against the State, same as with any other nation. Where the State rises above, however, is that we've always had ways to deal with our troubles within the system. Remember that no matter the corporation, creche, tube or race we have always prided ourselves on being Caldari. These ties should matter more than this.

If you know honor, lay down your weapons until you remember who they should be pointed at.
I-RED may have distanced themselves from both sides here, but so far they've shown the most wisdom in these troubles.
Listen.

That is a wise position, and a cautious one. But as time passes, I believe soon Caldari corporations will have to decide wether to accept the power of the Executor, or actually bring back the tradition in an active way. And I don't think it'll be long before the line has to be drawn and blood will be shed between those that once called themselves brothers.

They say a civil war is the worst kind of war there is. I hope the Caldari don't have to walk that road. I really do, but it is increasingly difficult to see that happening.

I am in agreement with the official stance of I-RED, more or less.


However, let it be known that if good men and women truly did serve in the CPD, Caldari Navy, and so forth, the innocent and hard-working citizens of the State would not be subject to unnecessary arrest and death in the first place.

Respected Oniseki-haani,

While it is understandeable that the I-RED legal team would refrain from sharing its legal strategy with the public at this juncture, it seems inconsistent to dodge this particular question.

Your Public Statement on behalf of the Department of Public Relations alleges that "corporate sovereignty has [...] been breached by the Caldari Provincial Directorate" and further mentions unspecified "violations of corporate and contract law by the CPD" whereas your parent corporation has merely filed a complaint with the Caldari Provincial Directorate because it has "allow[ed] ground fighting to erupt".

This difference between active and passive voice in the statements of the mother corporation and the capsuleer subsidiary suggests a materially different course of events: either the Caldari Provincial Directorate directly ordered the Caldari Navy to engage in these operations in contravention of existing agreements, as your public statement alleges,or the sin is merely one of omission. In this reading of events the Ishukone Corporation would have liked the Caldari Provincial Directorate to act on its behalf by preventing the Caldari Navy from extending its operations into Ishukone territory, but for some reason it didn't. Because the purpose of these operations remains classified, we can only speculate as to why, but the decision would have been taken in accordance with corporate laws and edicts.

Because foreign entities are openly promoting a Caldari civil war, this question is of more than just legal interest, as I'm sure you understand.

Regards,

Knoot Enderas

I'm afraid it is extremely unlikely you can fit every single Caldari from across four regions onto that single rock. Besides, you already have it, even if it's nothing but a flag that indicates it as such. So, I do not see the justifications in invading another densely-populated world.

Since the concerning events of the weekend, I have been in discussion with members of the IPI Council. The Intaki Prosperity Initiative will be making a formal statement in the next few hours.

But first, I want to confirm that, just as how our allies in I-RED have supported us in the past, the Intaki Prosperity Initiative stands by them and offers its support should they wish it.

We are reassured by I-RED's measured response. Theirs is a clear desire to avoid unnecessary violence and we support them fully in their request for caution. We empathize with the servicemen and women of Ishukone Watch who must be so eager to defend Ishukone assets yet are denied this right by contractual limitations. That they continue to wait is a reflection of their professionalism.

However, I would like to call upon I-RED to confirm as many details as they are able through secure channels with their parent megacorporation, as the article linked above presents one item of major concern that appears thus far to have been overlooked by others.

CEO Mens Reppola is quoted as claiming the Intaki system is "the exclusive property of Ishukone". I would like to remind everyone that Ishukone's presence is actually limited to that of economic development and investment regarding shipping and security—not dominion. The Intaki Assembly's authority and rights of governance remain whole, and thus the system belongs to no one but its indigenous people. It is a disservice to this forum, the residents of Intaki, and the employees of Ishukone to confuse the actions of other State megacorporations in Placid with those of Ishukone in Intaki.

As a CEO, Mr Reppola should, and would, be well aware of the responsibilities and boundaries which Ishukone negotiated and agreed to with the Intaki Assembly. I hesitate to speculate that Mr Reppola now wishes to breach or exaggerate the terms of said contract, or manipulate the media by spreading propaganda to fan the flames and encourage further open conflict. We have trusted that Ishukone's negotiations were made in good faith, so I rather prefer to question the authenticity of the quote. If Mr Reppola has been misrepresented, the quality of work by the original reporter is severely lacking.

It is our hope that any conflict in Intaki is brought to a swift end. Our sympathy and support goes out to those harmed or otherwise affected by these unfortunate events.
