Spy Ring Uncovered (ING)
Imperial News Grid - "Spy Ring Uncovered"
Posted by: Vladamiur Veselov on Year 20 Day 42
CORELLIAN (SECURITY) - This morning in a massive show of public force, Agents with the Imperial Security Bureau raided a number of apartments on the planet of Corellia. Representatives have confirmed that these raids are connected to a public operation by Counter Intelligence Agents in coordination with Imperial Intelligence that occurred last week on a tavern in which a number of individuals were taken into custody. The same officials have confirmed that these raids are a portion of a greater Imperial Intelligence Counter-Intelligence Operation that netted and exposed a spying ring.
Agents escorted several non-humans along with their human collaborators into waiting Bureau vessels. Among the detainees were the building owners and several accountants who are presently under investigation for aiding and abetting. Speaking on behalf of Imperial Intelligence, Imperial Security Bureau’s Chief Maria Kuchera had this to say.
"This Operation is the accumulation of months’ worth of covert surveillance by a number of Officers with his majesties Imperial Security Bureau in conjunction with Imperial Intelligence Agents working in counter-intelligence and signals officers. This Operation though is due in no small part to the vigilance of Imperial Officers who reported suspicious contact through the standard reporting procedures. Those procedures are the backbone of the Empire's fight against those who would attempt to gain intelligence for terrorist purposes. Through filed reports an analysis of data can be conducted, an investigation launched, and a spy ring exposed. This ring in particular was crude and attempted to gain intelligence with ‘romantic’ liaisons. While certainly rudimentary this tactic has been known to be effective in other lawless regions of the galaxy, so we must always remain vigilant and report any and all suspicious contact."
The Imperial Security Bureau and Imperial Intelligence urges anyone with information to come forward and contact their local officers to report suspicious activity.
