Yonis Ardishapur arrests head of Ammatar Fleet
Derelik - Admiral Einkur Aro, head of the Ammatar Fleet, was taken into custody today on the orders of Ardishapur family head Yonis Ardishapur. According to a statement released by Ardishapur, the Admiral is being charged with dereliction of duty, failure to prevent mutiny, and treason. This is apparently in response to the numerous defections from the Ammatar Fleet that occurred following the Elder Fleet invasion last year.
The action has shocked many across the Mandate and in the interstellar community, who had viewed the Admiral's position as safe following six months of inaction by Amarrian and Ammatar officials. Ardishapur dismissed the time period as an unimportant factor. "It matters not when God's justice is delivered, only that it is done. Now that I have ensured stability in the Mandate's leadership, I can begin the process of curing the rest of its many ills."
The sudden action has put many Fleet officials on edge, with one top officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, claiming "We're all uneasy about it. The Grand Admiral wasn't the only one who could shoulder the blame for that day. There's no telling where it might stop."
Admiral Aro is being held in Sasta under guard, awaiting transport to Ardishapur Prime for his trial.
