Yesterday we had received the following tip on our dropbox:
Of Sound Mind are in in talks with -7- leadership and CVA, about ending the fight, the systems are in the process of being handed to -7-, so the days of a freeport are about to end in 4b and 9-fob.
Today we receive further confirmation of this:
CVA has reset Of Sound Mind Nuet, removed from KOS
Terms for the cessation of hostility between ‘Providence’ & ‘Of Sound Mind’
Providence/CVA: Equinox Daedalus, Rovern Hashu
Of Sound Mind: XavierVE, June Ting, Ali Aras
The following conditions have been agreed on both sides for the cease fire to begin on 23:59 Eve Time, Thursday 8th August 2013:
1) All Hostilities will cease between ‘Providence’ & ‘Of Sound Mind’
2) Of Sound Mind will withdraw, peacefully, from Providence.
3) June Ting & Rovern will continue to represent both sides, in Diplomatic Relations, to ensure safe evacuation for Of Sound Mind from the region.
4) Sovereignty of ‘Of Sound Mind’ systems is to be returned to Sev3rance, for holding, until such time their future can be determined.
5) ‘Of Sound Mind’ will be set Not KOS to all Providence until the Diplomatic representatives from both sides agree, in writing, a date of reset.
In the final analysis it became apparent that there had been no clear lines of communication utilised during the lead up to this conflict.
To expound, there was confusion in the interaction between the Holder Alliances, Neutrals residing in Providence & CVA (acting as mediator). This included the boundaries & limitations of the Holder Alliance actions & the possible dispute resolution paths available for ALL involved entities.
While CVA actively pursues the NRDS policy & the encouragement of Neutral participation in Providence, there is an obvious need to make clearer the responsibilities & limitations of the Holder Alliances & the available conflict resolution support for Neutrals. Steps, to this end, have already been put in place & will continue to be developed as a direct response to this conflict. Clearer signposting of the CVA mediation process for the residents of Providence (thus swifter resolution of disputes) will, hopefully, avoid this situation from occurring again.
I would personally like to thank those alliances that put forth the extra effort against hostiles, all the pilots who took time out of their day to assist in pushing forward this agenda on both the pvp as well as the diplo side to come to a reasonable solution to our issues.
Sometimes things come to a point that both sides feel that they have had their say and and their voice has been heard, and hopefully we can push forward for a better providence.
(blatantly stolen from FP bar my few notes at the end)
Please make sure to RESET of sound mind as they are considered neutral and non-hostile at this time.
