The National Intelligence Service (Spanish : Servicio Nacional de Inteligencia, SNI) is the primary intelligence agency of Altivebrio tasked for both internal and external intelligence gathering & processing, counter-terrorism and for covert operations. It was established in 1926 by President Miguel de Odeo. The SNI's headquarters is the Gran Barcaza in Nuevo Seville.
In 1978, the Instituto de Inteligencia Interna split from the SNI. The III began to function as Altivebrio's internal security service.
The SNI was created in 1926 by President Miguel de Odeo and José Alcrazias, the latter who served as the first Director of the SNI. President de Odeo created the SNI as the central agency for domestic and foreign intelligence gathering, and since 1930, also began organizing counter terrorism divisions and began covert operations. The SNI is also tasked in researching weapons, technology and economics.
On March 4, 1973 a Mexican Army convoy was ambushed in the outskirts of the town of Santo Tomás de Arriba in Mexico. The convoy was transporting Altivebrian spy Jacobo del Veilto who was arrested in Salina Cruz for espionage.
The two trucks surrounding del Veilto's truck exploded, and a couple of gunmen erupted from the forest, shot and killed the surviving Mexican soldiers, escaped with del Veilto in an unmarked van. Neither the CISEN or the Mexican army were able to locate the gunmen. The van was recovered almost a month later from the sea.
Mexico, along with USA and the United Kingdom blamed the SNI for the attack, but both the SNI spokesperson and President Joseph Vantorres de Claus denied any Altivebrian involvement. On March 15, Mexican photographer Juan del Rio released 10 photographs showing del Veilto living in an Altivebrian government compound in Neuvo Seville. Juan del Rio was denied an exit visa, and was barred from leaving Altivebrio. A CISEN operative said that Juan del Rio was imprisoned by the Altivebrian police, and was executed sometime in 1974.
On 10 December, 1980 an Alconbrian refugee camp in Mexico was bombed, killing 203 Alconbrians, 18 Mexican aid workers and injuring more than 300 men, women and children. The Mexican President blamed the SNI, while the SNI denied any involvement.
A week later, in 16 December, 1980 a SNI spokesperson confirmed SNI involvement in the bombings, saying that the SNi bombed the camp to kill six terrorists, whom they believed to be high ranking members of the defunt Alconbrian nationalist organization, the Organizo de Liveri Egaleco.
On 20 December, a report by the UNHRC said that Carlos Golberriez, one of the casualties was a lieutenant of the OLE, who lived in the refugee camp. But the report stressed on the fact that this entire blast was not to kill Golberriez, but was only a racist killing targeting Alconbrians who fled Altivebrio to Mexico.
Operation La TapaEdit
SNI operatives successfully assaulted Organizo Rezizto el Alconbria terrorists who had hijacked a plane carrying Altivebrian Vice-President Fredrick Loyola in 1989. Three SNI AS teams flew undetected to the ALC controlled airbase in the town of Ciudad de Fatta, 45 miles west of Alcacer. Two teams HALO jumped into the airbase, while the third team circled around till the airbase was neutralised of threats and landed it's passenger airplane.
The AS teams shot at the terrorists at the airplane, blew the doors open and killed the remaining hijackers and successfully recovered Loyola and his team, escorted him to their plane, and successfully took off, before Alconbrian reinforcements arrived to the airbase. Subsequently, an Altivebrian bomber later shelled and leveled the entire airbase five days later.
3 SNI operatives were wounded, and 58 ORA terrorists were killed.
Assassination of Antonio DuránEdit
The SNI successfully assassinated the Chief of the Alconbria Liberation Council, Antonio Durán in 1991 in Los Guez. The SNI's Director said that this was one of the SNI's most successful missions ever.
Involvement in the 1984 Puerto Pedro massacreEdit
In 1992, several SNI documents were leaked by the Alconbria Liberation Council, some of which were related to the SNI involvement in the massacre. According to the ALC spokesperson, the SNI supplied weapons and ammunition to the perpetrators of the massacre, along with locations of the Alconbrians and prevented the paramedics and fire departments from reaching the spot. The SNI also threatened to kill journalists in case they tried to expose the massacre.
Nearly a month after the attack, the Director of SNI issued a statement denying any involvement in the attacks. However, till this date, the III has neither claimed responsibility, or denied involvement in the massacre.
