|2.54 August 6, 2250 CE - Biological Weapon Ban announced|
|In a ceremony on August 6, 2250, he announces that the Plague was caused by human engineering, blaming it on a rogue group of military scientists who perverted the work of their lab. He claims they were tasked with designing methods of better resisting pain, but that they perverted their research into pain production. Their work was then accidentally released and mutated out of control. He then announces the Comprehensive Ban on Pernicious Biological Agents, which effectively prohibits the production or use of any biological material used in war, which could harm civilian populations, or reasonably mutate into a widespread harm. These types of weapons become known was biopernics in the military nomenclature.
While many do not entirely believe the explanation given for the Plague, the UGTO-controlled media focuses on the benefits of the Biopernic Ban and Nahima is publicly lauded for his stance. He appeals to all of humanity to respect the same terms.
The ICC declares that they will abide by the Ban as well, and the High Council passes a law identical in wording.
