Omni-Tek announces unconditional amnesty
On behalf of the Omni-Tek Corporation, Philip Ross announces an unconditional amnesty for all clan-affiliated citizens. This is intended to be a first step towards a lasting peace on Rubi-Ka.
The Omni-Tek Corporation of Rubi-Ka (OT-RK) announced today an unconditional amnesty for all registered and unregistered members and supporters · both political and military · of the illicit rebel clans of Rubi-Ka. At the same time, OT-RK reinforces their commitment to the existing ceasefire which has been increasingly strained in the past few months.
"The amnesty will hopefully open up a new channel of communications between Omni-Tek and the clans, particularly the Council of Truth," said OT-RK CEO Philip Ross in a statement to the press this morning. "Our objective is to work towards a new era of peace and understanding between our respective people, and to bolster the provisional ceasefire that·s been in effect since the signing of the Tir Accord. The amnesty will allow those who have committed crimes in the name of the clans to come out and hand in their weapons of aggression, without having to fear reprisals or their freedom · and perhaps to even join the Omni-Tek Corporation and start a whole new life."
The amnesty will supplement the already existent ceasefire between OT-RK and the rebel clans.
"The ceasefire has been suffering lately," said Ross, "partly because of the recent influx of new colonists · both Omni-Tek employees and clan supporters · and partly because of a lack of commitment on both sides. The amount of random violence in the past few months has been staggering, and this is something we need to find an immediate solution to. The ceasefire and the amnesty are the first steps on the long road towards reconciliation. I also want to extend a formal invitation to the Council to meet and discuss the terms of a lasting peace. We would like to enter into peace negotiations as soon as possible, and it is our hope that the amnesty shows our genuine commitment to this cause."
Effective immediately, the amnesty guarantees that an unconditional pardon is granted to every individual who has committed criminal acts against OT-RK in support of the rebel cause. Under corporate laws, the very act of being a registered member of the clans · or a political and/or military supporter of the clans · is a crime punishable by imprisonment and/or deportation.
With the amnesty in effect, clan members are also free to apply for a position within the Omni-Tek Corporation of Rubi-Ka.
"Our wish is for this to be the beginning of a new era of cooperation between ourselves and the free citizens of Rubi-Ka," said Philip Ross. "Our sincerest hope is that the amnesty and ceasefire will prove without the shadow of a doubt that we are committed to peace. The ball is now in the hands of the rebel clans, and, most importantly, the Council of Truth."
