Votes: This bill is a resolution. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.
Voting deadline: May 4264
|The Governor of Rapula has asked the Presidium for help after an explosion of violence in certain cities in his Province. He hardly has sufficient police officers as it is, and has expressed the wish for the military to intervene and back up the police forces in their investigation.|
Also, he asks for people and material to create an emergency distribution of drinkable water. He estimates that 5 or 6 million citizens might be affected by the damage done at the South-Rapulan waterplant. It is currently unknown how long it would take to get the plant running at full capacity, but it would take at least half a year.
We propose to send several regiments to Rapula, in particular to Sorbankia Heights. After discussion with the Chief of Staff of our national defence we have concluded that the best way to help the Province of Rapula would be by sending (part of) the following units for the logistic issues:
- 127R-R (127th Regiment - Replenishment and Logistics)
- 231R-FAU (231st Regiment - Field Accomodation Unit)
- 152CE (152nd Engineer Corps)
- 198MCG (198 Movement Control Group)
To assist the police forces, the Chief of Staff proposes to implement the First Corps of the Second Army. The Corps itself would decide who to send and for what period, assuring a roulation might the situation last for a long period. The First Corps is available for the rest of the year. If the situation should be prolonged, and the military presence remains necessary in Rapula from January 15, 4264 on, the First Corps of the First Army is willing to take over.
In total we speak about a contingent of 2700 persons in equivalent for the potable water issue and the equivalent of 1600 persons for assisting the police.
The cost can be implemented in the Operational Planning for this year for at least 7 weeks. The rest would be divided. The cost of personnel will be bourn by the Department of Defence, the other costs such as housing, materials and provisions would be taken care of by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
If the assistance would still be needed in 4264, the military could cut back on the Operational Exercises of that year in order not to exceed the expenses.
Minister of Defence
We ask the Presidium to consider these numbers and make haste with making a decision. Rapula is counting on us.
