PRINCIPALITY OF HUTT RIVER DIPLOMATIC SECURITY FORCE

The Diplomatic Security Force (DSF), often known as I-3, was formed some years ago and has evolved and developed to where it is today.

The DSF plays an active and unfortunately busy life in the service of this Principality and with a growing list of serving Members located both locally and around the globe, this active Force collects the Principality of Hutt Riverís foreign and domestic intelligence, it also monitors and actively engages in operations against criminal activities, particularly those that affect the Principality and in all actions it co-operates with and seeks the co-operation and support of both Domestic and Foreign jurisdictions International Security and Policing services and Government Authorities, as well as provides an investigation and prosecution arm to support, protect and uphold the Principality Laws at an International level.
The DSF provides PHR with a global capability to promote and defend national security and economic well-being of the Principality. I-3 is an acronym of the three divisions of the Force, those being the: Intelligence, Identification and Information Divisions.
 

THE CURRENT DIRECTOR GENERAL 

The Security Service is headed by a Director General,
Sir Reynald Luc Carra KCSOL, OIOM, DSF


The Director General is responsible for: 

  • the operations efficiency and overall performance of the Service;
  • making an annual report on its performance to the Office of the Sovereign or the appointed Minister/s; and
  • ensuring that the Force obtains and discloses information only in accordance with its statutory responsibilities. The Force also discloses information for the purpose of the prevention or detection of serious crime, or the purpose of criminal proceedings.

 In discharging these responsibilities, the Director General is assisted by internal mechanisms designed to ensure that its work abides by the principles that: 

  • the rule of law is paramount; and
  • methods of investigation must be proportionate to the threat and their use properly authorized.

 

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES 

I-3 collects intelligence and mounts operations overseas, monitors and enforces the Principality Acts of Law and generally causes to be investigated matters that are seen to be: 

  • in the fields of national security with particular reference to the governments defence and foreign policies;
  • in the interests of the economic well-being of the PHR and its Citizens and protectorates;
  • in support of the prevention or detection of serious crime; or
  • unlawful

I-3 uses human and technical resources to meet these requirements, as well as liaison with a wide range of foreign intelligence and security services.
To fulfil these obligations I-3 may work closely with other PHR intelligence and security agencies, the Armed Forces, Minister of State, Minister of Treasury and Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Office of the Sovereign as directed by HRH Prince Leonard or the Minister.

 

I-3 AND THE MEDIA

Inquiries from the media are conducted through the Office of the Sovereign.  Because of the delicate nature of I-3 work it is the policy of I-3 not to comment on operations, staff, agents, or relations with foreign intelligence services. I-3 does not have a press office.

 

I-3 AND THE PUBLIC

Members of the public who wish to contact I-3 members may do so and may at times be directed to particular officers as and when required.

 

 STATUTORY BASIS

 The DSF is operated under the authority of the Crown, and any Minister/s appointed responsible.
The functions of the Force are:

  • to protect national security against threats from espionage, terrorism and sabotage, from activities of agents of foreign powers, and from actions intended to overthrow or undermine Sovereign rule of the Principality by political, industrial, violent or any other unlawful means;
  • to safeguard the economic well-being of the PHR against threats posed by the actions or intentions of persons outside the Principality;
  • to act in support of the activities of police forces and other law enforcement agencies, both internally and internationally in the prevention and detection of serious crime.

 

I-3 IN GOVERNMENT

The PHR National Intelligence Machinery

The National Intelligence Machinery analyses and reports on threats to PHR interests, sets the requirements for intelligence collection, analyses the intelligence and supervises, funds and oversees intelligence collection. Intelligence collection is carried out by I-3 (mainly outside PHR).

The Role of Government Ministers

In the day-to-day operations the Diplomatic Security Force operates under the immediate control of the Director General, who has the statutory duty to provide annual reports on the work of the Service to the required Minister/s, who in practice brief HRH Prince Leonard regularly.

 

 MINISTERIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

Senior Ministers as appointed are responsible to HRH Prince Leonard for the conduct and activities of the Diplomatic Security Force (I-3).

The Office of the Crown and any Minister/s appointed are responsible for the performance of the PHR intelligence machine as a whole.

The Division Chiefs have a close knowledge of the most sensitive aspects of security matters of interest to PHR because they personally authorize the investigations the Service performs.

The Director General also discusses matters of policy affecting the Service - for example regarding resources or relevant legislation.

In carrying out this work the Director General is supported by and receives independent advice and information from officials in the PHR government who maintain close working links with him.
