To the citizens, Delegate, and region of The North Pacific, We have recently learned, as have you, that the previous Senate endorsed the efforts of former Senator Svezjacael to commit the offense of espionage against your region. This is an act of war, not an act of fraternity. This is not an act of peace or goodwill, no matter what the intent. To our knowledge, Senator Svezjacael’s work consisted of gaining citizenship, looking around a little bit, and calling that spying. He boasted about espionage work in a public space as well, which was unbecoming of a Senator of the New Pacific Order. Espionage itself is against the writings of Unlimited at the dawn of the New Pacific Order, which means that the actions of the former Senate in the instance of Svezjacael his espionage were against our own ideological beliefs. Thus a wrong was committed against a region that had shown us no aggression. We will not offer the former Senate’s explanation as to why they thought this to be acceptable as an excuse to your region. The North Pacific did nothing against us to warrant a hostile action against your region. These actions are condemned not only by you and the rest of NationStates, but also by us. Espionage has been formally illegalized in the NS NPO by our new Emperor, East Durthang/Lord of Darkness, because espionage is below the dignity and integrity of a Pacific. Former Senator Svezjacael and his World Assembly nation may be found in Haiku for a period of 3-5 years. He has entered into an exile in this manner. He has been removed from Senator status permanently. His only access to The Pacific now is writing internally and roleplaying, of which he has been a staple for years. He is banned from Gameplay, from foreign affairs, from other regions. If he is proven to have violated his own terms, actions against him -- which may include a permanent ban from the NS NPO – will be taken. As a region and fellow Pacific, we offer nothing short of our apologies and deep regret that these violations were committed. The North Pacific had done nothing to deserve this from us. There is no way and there will be no attempt to excuse either espionage or bragging about such. We disavow the choices of the former Senate and pledge to never violate the sovereignty and security of The North Pacific again. The New Pacific Order will not be a region that goes against our own principles, and that recklessly commits offenses of this nature against any region that has done nothing to us, particularly a fellow GCR.
