“Chainbreaker” Ship in Custody
by By Iris Dunnigan
CITADEL, THE PRESIDIUM- A representative for the Turian Hierarchy announced today that a turian cruiser Interceptor sized and boarded the SSV Joseph Knight, a Systems Alliance registered ship yesterday in the Minos Nebula. The crew of the Interceptor responded to an emergency message from the Joseph Knight and found the ship adrift near the Fortis relay. The ship had lost its kinetic barriers and sustained extensive weapons damage. The crew identified themselves as members of the “Chainbreakers” an organization on the Citadel Council terrorist watch list with a reputation of using extreme force against slavers and their businesses. The crew claimed they organized a large scale raid into the planet of Tortuga (Nemean Abyss/Terminus Systems) and that their ship suffered damage while escaping from the pirate fleet in orbit around the planet.
Inside the ship they found over one hundred liberated slaves, mostly humans and asari, some of which were recuperating on the ships extensive medical bay. All of the former slaves showed signs of head trauma due to the forceful injection of control circuitry into the back of their skulls. Physicians aboard the Joseph Knight claimed to have performed the necessary surgeries to remove said control mechanisms.
ANN legal analyst Antony McConnell posits that since the action took place in the Terminus systems, the “Chainbreakers” will not face any serious legal repercussions for their actions.
