CLA TEST # 48 (Combined Language Assessment) reading comprehension for UN SAAT Exam Attempted Escape by inmates

COMBINED LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT
(English) TEST # 48
FIRST PART of CLA (Reading)
ATTEMPTED ESCAPE BY INMATES
PATROL REPORT

At 10.05 hours, 5 January 2012 United Nations Police Officers (UNPOLs) received information from the local police concerning an attempted escape by the inmates in Man Prison on the evening of 4 January 2012 at around 18.00 hours. UNPOL visited the scene and found out the following information. The prisoners, totaling 24, who had just finished eating their dinner, managed to take two prison guards hostage. These two guards were locked in a place called “hot cell”. Fifteen prisoners were able to climb the wall and sneak out of the courtyard. Four guards posted at the reception area noted that the prisoners came out of the courtyard trying to reach the main exit door. These guards alerted the other four guards posted outside the prison building. With their AK47 assault rifles, the guards outside were able to keep the prisoners back, inside the common courtyard. Then, the guards who were locked in the “hot cell” were released. Two prisoners were injured during this incident.
                                                       FOLLOW-UP REPORT #01
UNPOL patrol 2830 visited the scene at 11.00, 5 January 2012. They met with the guards who had been involved in the attempted escape. The two who had been taken hostage and locked in “hot cell” said that three of the prisoners had been armed with what looked like homemade knives that they used to threaten the guards with. The three armed prisoners seemed to take the lead in the attempted escape, giving orders to the other prisoners. They were easy to recognize, as all three had big tattoos of a lion with wings on the upper part of their left arm. These three prisoners did not seem to fear any type of violent actions. They noted that the other prisoners also seemed to be afraid of the three lead prisoners. In fact, when one of the prisoners refused to lock the door to the “hot cell” one of the lead prisoners, cut his neck.        
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 02
UNPOL patrol 2830 made a follow-up visit to Man Prison at 11.30 hours, 6 January 2012 to check whether the prison management had taken necessary actions to prevent any further attempted escapes. Several actions had been taken by the management.  First, the prison guard team leader explained that all 50 cells in the prison had been searched through and a lot of weapons in different shapes had been seized. All 250 prisoners had been body searched with a negative result. Then the wall where the prisoners had climbed had been covered with barbed wire.

It was noted that none of the prison guards who were involved (two taken hostage, four posted in the reception area and four posted outside) had been injured physically. The two guards taken hostage were still in shock. They were taken off normal duty and given administrative duties. The prison doctor was keeping these two guards under observation and checking their mental condition regularly. UNPOL patrol also visited the hospital in Man Prison to check the condition of a prisoner who was hospitalized after the attempted escape. He broke his leg after falling from the wall. His injury was not life threatening. He had no complaints concerning his treatment in the hospital.    
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 03
At 09.00 hours, 7 January 2012 the prison manager, Ms. Susan Doe, informed UNPOL that they had identified the three prisoners who lead the attempted escape. Their names were Mr. Joseph Brill, Mr. Alan Dublett and Mr. Georg Claude and are all well-know robbers from the Abidjan area. They are all members of a gang called the “Flying Lions”. They had leading roles among the other prisoners and have been feared, both by prison staff and inmates. Most of the weapons seized after the attempted escape, were found in the cells of these three men, in total nine. With their criminal network they could easily plan an escape and by threaten the other prisoners for this purpose. These three prisoners were put in isolation cells in Man Prison at 18.00 hours, 7 January, to prevent any further tries to escape and to calm the fears of the other inmates.

            This is the second section of the UNPOL Combined Language Assessment.  It is divided into two parts. In the first part you will hear one person describing the mission-related topic you have just read about in the Reading Comprehension – it will be introduced as the Narrative. In the second part, you will hear a conversation between two people who are discussing the same mission-related topic – it will be introduced as the Dialogue.

            Please be reminded that the use of any computer devices, microphones, books, external notes or assistance from others is not permitted. Candidates who fail to observe appropriate conduct during this test will be excluded from the assessment process. Such actions will be duly noted and communicated in writing to the authorities of the Member State concerned and to the SAAT Coordinator in the UN Police Division
.
            You will be given a Report Writing Form and another Blank Sheet of paper. Take careful notes on the Blank Sheet of paper of both the Narrative and the Dialogue. Pay attention to the important facts and key information. You will hear the recording only one time.

            Once the Narrative and Dialogue are finished, you will be asked to use your notes from both the Reading and the Audio parts to write your own complete police report.

            You will have 30 minutes to complete your police report. The instructor will indicate when these 30 minutes begin. The instructor will then announce when there are 5 minutes remaining and when there is one final minute.

            Please do not forget to write your full name and your individual test serial number clearly in the spaces provided on the Report Writing Sheet.

Good Luck!
NARRATIVE
At 11.15 hours on 8 January 2012 the prison manager of Man Prison, Ms. Susan Doe, contacted UNPOL and requested them to visit the Prison.  Ms. Doe stated that one of the inmates, Mr. Jerry Smith, said he had important information concerning the attempted escape on 4 January 2012. UNPOL patrol 2830 arrived at the Prison at 13.00 hours the same day and met with Mr. Smith, aged 67 years. He had been a prisoner in Man Prison since 2007, convicted of drug trafficking. Because of his age, Mr. Smith was respected by the other prisoners. In 2010 three new prisoners arrived in Man Prison. They were all members of a gang called “Flying Lions”. Mr. Georg Claude was their informal leader. These three prisoners had a bad influence on the other prisoners by using threats and physical violence. It was well known among all inmates that Mr. Claude was going to lead the “Flying Lions” and some other prisoners in an escape on 4 January 2012. Mr. Smith did not support this idea. Therefore Mr. Smith was threatened by “Flying Lions”, saying they would hurt him and also get help from outside prison to hurt his family, if he said anything. Mr. Smith took these threats seriously as all the weapons that were seized after the attempted escape, in total 17, were made by Mr. Claude. According to Mr. Claude they were getting help from outside the prison by other members of “Flying Lions” to escape. He also said that one of the prison guards, whose name was not known to Mr. Smith, was helping them to pass messages in and out of prison. Mr. Smith described this guard as the tallest one among prison staff. This guard had been promised a share of the money from a bank robbery that “Flying Lions” planned after the escape. Now Mr. Smith was requesting UNPOL to protect him and his family. As the prison escape failed he could be blamed for it and the “Flying Lions” could take it out on his family. Mr. Smith was going to be released on 15 February 2012.  It would be devastating if anything would happen to him or his family at this point. Knowing the background of the “Flying Lions” the UNPOL patrol understood how serious the situation was for Mr. Smith and his family. Therefore they promised to follow up with local authorities and UNPOL chain of command to ensure witness protection.    
DIALOGUE
Police Officer:          I am conducting an interview in reference to the attempted escape from Man Prison at 18.00 hours on 4 January 2012. Can you explain your role in this incident?

Witness:                      My name is Jerry Smith and I have been an inmate in Man Prison since 2009.
                                    I was convicted of drug trafficking.

Police Officer:            Please, go ahead and tell us what you know. 

Witness:                      Two years ago three new prisoners arrived here. They were all members of a gang called “Flying Lions”. Mr. George Claude was their informal leader.

Police Officer:             Did their arrival have any impact on life in the Prison? 

Witness:                      Indeed! They had bad influence on the other inmates and took power by threats and even physical violence.

Police Officer:           Were you involved in any of their activities?

Witness:                      No, but I knew that Mr. Claude was making a lot of weapons that he was hiding in different places in the prison. All 17 weapons that were seized after the attempted escape were done by him.

Police Officer:            Did you hear any rumors about the planning of this escape?

Witness:                      Yes, I did. Some of the younger prisoners came to me seeking advices, as they were going to take part in the escape, some of them because they wanted to and some because they were forced to by the members of the gang.

Police Officer:           What advice did you give these inmates who came to you?

Witness:                     I encouraged them to not take part in this plan.

Police Officer:             Was your advice known by the members of the “Flying Lions”?

Witness:                    Yes, it was. The three members of “Flying Lions” approached me and threatened to hurt me and my family, if I ratted. I felt no doubt that they were serious about these threats. They told me that they were going to get support from members of the “Flying Lions” outside prison and that they were going to rob a bank once they had escaped.

Police Officer:            How could they communicate with persons outside the prison?

Witness:                      They talked about one of the prison guards, whose name was never mentioned, but I know it is the tallest of all the guards in this prison. This guard had assisted them by passing messages in and out from prison. For that he was promised a share in the money from the bank robbery.

Police Officer:             How do you feel about the situation now?

Witness:                      I know what these guys are capable of. As the escape did not succeed, I think they might blame me for the failure. I will be released shortly, on 15 February, and it would be terrible if anything happened to me or my family at this stage. Therefore I beg you to protect me and my family.

Police Officer:          As we know the brutal history of the “Flying Lions” we can fully understand your worries. We will therefore offer you and your family witness protection. Is there anything else you would like to add?

Witness:                    No, I have told you everything I know. I am very grateful for what you can offer me and my family.
