The Fourth District has a policy of generally not commenting on internal Caldari state political matters, but the extraordinary events of last week in Piak have prompted a number of inquiries to the alliance's diplomatic office, voicing concern about what this means for the integrity of the Caldari State. Therefore, we are releasing the following statement to explain our views on the issue, such as they are.
As far as the Fourth District and its staff are concerned, the shakeup of Caldari Constructions' leadership is a purely an internal political matter, and should have little effect on Caldari foreign policy as it stands, CEO Heth's personal views notwithstanding. The events of Friday have not changed the makeup of the Chief Executive Panel or threatened the stability of any of the major megacorporations, and the market appears to have stabilized in the wake of last week's tumult.
At this time, the activity of last Friday does not appear to warrant any sort of combat deployment on the part of the Fourth District. The Chief Executive Panel and the Caldari Business Tribunal are investigating the appointment of the new board of Caldari Constructions, and until they determine what, if any, sanctions must be applied towards the corporation and/or its board of directors, the Fourth District will maintain its current alert state.
However, the unstable security situation at many Caldari Constructions facilities following last week's riots and the withdrawal of Home Guard forces from Caldari Constructions stations and other facilities has raised concerns within the Fourth District's logistics divisions. As a result, the Fourth District will be conducting a review of supply contracts and suspending those with Caldari Constructions until such time that the legality of CEO Heth's appointment has been confirmed and a second review can be performed.
Furthermore, the Fourth District alliance council has issued a standing order that all Fourth District vessels are barred from docking with all Caldari Constructions stations until the security of these installations can be assured.
