Istanu Piracy Out of Control
An investigation into local pirate activity near the Alliance core systems has shown a focused gathering of cut-throat pirates in the Istanu system.
Miners operating in the area have been abruptly forced to leave or face death at the receiving end of high powered beam lasers.
One local miner who wished to remain anonymous (due to future health reasons) had this to say about the situation-
“It’s out of control! These pirates won’t let an honest miner do a day’s job without gettin’ shot at. The Alliance aren’t interested in doing anything about them! We need more independent pilots to come help clean up this mess.”
Individual contractors are being informed that many bounties are up for grabs. For a point of contact, CMDR Jobedy of the Alliance Outskirt Fleet has taken lead and is forming a local militia to assist the innocent miners reclaim the system.
