Reports are coming in that the slaves in Sorbago have taken control of many of the mines on Sorbago A1 and have massacred those in control. We have no reporters on the scene so cannot verify these stories.
A spokeswoman for Mastopolos Mining Incorporated, which runs the mines and much of the system, has issued the following statement:
“Our security forces have intercepted ships from outside the system bringing guns to the rebels. This is destabilising our workforce, and has got to stop.”
Senator Torval, a major shareholder in Mastopolos, has sent some of her private warships to the system. She has also further increased aid for those assisting her in fighting off “these external rabble-rousers”. In the meantime, the price of ore has risen in the area.
