At approximately 0300, 12th of April, 2160, Ceres prison colony was attacked by the Followers of Eternity. In a daring escape plan, brothers and sisters of the Eternity infiltrated Ceres prison through the mines (that tunnel below the prison). It is believed they managed to free Herschel Nussbaum from his isolation room, just outside the warden's office, leaving behind an improvised explosive device . No footage of the incident is currently available due to the New Terra Act 2142 classifying it as priority one.
To much of the embarrassment of the Custodial Detention Department, by the time they had noticed Herschel Nussbaum was missing it was too late. The explosion killed twelve CDD officers, and over thirty prisoners. Warden Nadia Mirkowsky has also been reported as one of the casualties. A well respected officer of the CPC, she had only been in charge of the prison for a mere year and was seen as an up and coming prospect on the road to Commandant.
It is believed that Herschel Nussbaum is a senior brother in the Eternity, with rumours he has had face to face contact with Pallas, the mysterious leader of the organisation. Rumours also suggest that the CPC were in the process of questioning the individual for information on Pallas’ whereabouts, just mere hours before the breakout.
Sources within the Union government have stated that this has been a terrible loss, both in life and in the recent efforts to suppress the actions of the terrorist group. An extensive investigation will take place to find out how this could of happened.
CPC ANNOUNCEMENTAs of 0900, 14th of March, 2160, Union City time, Ceres prison colony will be closed for the foreseeable future. All quantum gate activity has been suspended, and all incoming prison shuttles have been ordered to place their prisoners under cryostasis, and remain in orbit until Ceres reopens.
In her final act, Warden Nadia Mirkowsky attempted to protect her fellow CPC officers by moving the explosive device behind a level three barrier. Sadly there was not enough time, with the explosive device claiming claiming the life of Warden Mikowsky. The CPC will be awarding Warden Nadia Mirkowsky the Union Gallantry Medal posthumously.
Replacing Warden Mirkoswky will be CPC Superintendent Joshua Jones, transfering from the Colonial Protection Unit after his third year in the distant colonies.
Joshua Jones is an experienced CPC officer and it is our hope that his command will lead CDD out of this tragic time and into a successful period of safety, and security, for Ceres and its occupants.
Now, a statement from the new Warden, in the depths of Ceres mines.
“Nadia Mirkowsky was a dear friend to me, we had known each other for over a decade, ever since attending the Academy back on Earth. It did not surprise me that her final actions were those of selflessness and courage, for that has been the actions of the woman that I have always known.
As your new Warden, I will strive to follow in Nadia’s footsteps, and together, with the support of the excellent staff of the CDD, I know that we can return Ceres to the beacon of strength and security that it has always been.
And to the Followers of the Eternity, who committed this heinous act on Union Citizens, hear me now. Nadia Mirkowsky was more than just a friend to me, and I will make you regret the day you decided to murder her and her fellow officers for the sake of keeping your terrorist friends hidden. I will be personally leading CDD’s finest, the Fugitive Recovery Team, in capturing Herschel Nussbaum and those who assisted in his escape. Mark my words.. I will not rest, I will not stop, and I will not hold back. I am coming for you “Brothers and Sisters”.
