SIRPAR SYSTEM - Following a recent skirmish between Imperial Navy fighter and bomber craft, evidence of rebel-criminal collu- sion has become so widespread as to be incontrovertible.
During the skirmish, TIE/sa bomber craft targeting computers identified one of the Y-wing bombers as belonging to the rebellion's Gold Squadron.
Follow-up evidence provided by forensic research demonstrated that the Y-wing in question had been in rebel service prior to being outsourced or sold to the criminal syndicate involved in the skirmish.
The wreckage of the Y-wing in question was analyzed by forensic experts operating aboard the Vindicator-class heavy cruiser Pernicious, the base ship for the Navy's units involved in the skirmish. Underneath the outer layer of paint, the forensic experts found the tell-tale paint of the Rebellion's Gold Squadron.
"It's not as if we really needed more evidence of rebel-criminal collusion," Inspector Plante D. E. Vidence of the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) told HNN reporters. "Anyone paying attention to HNN's reporting these last months would already know that."
"The well-established pattern of collusion between the Rebellion and the criminal syndicates demonstrates the true nature of the Rebellion," spokesman for the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order, Mr. Prop Agandist told HNN. "It is incontrovertible that this band of thugs has no legitimate political agenda. They are only working to create a sphere of lawlessness so that they can trade in their contraband of weapons, human pleasure slaves for aliens, spice, and pornographic filth."
"They are truly despicable," Mr. Agandist added.
