The use of any computer devices, microphones, books, external notes or assistance from others is not permitted.  We expect full compliance and good conduct during this test.  Any candidates who fail to observe appropriate conduct will be excluded from the assessment process and the incident will be communicated in writing to the authorities of the Member State concerned and to the SAAT Coordinator in the UN Police Division.

Part one is the Reading Comprehension.
You will be given a mission-related story with a Question and Answer Sheet which contains ten questions related to the Key Facts of the story.  You will also be given a Blank Sheet of Paper for your note-taking.  Any notes that you take on the blank sheet you are allowed to keep throughout the exam.

PATROL REPORT
At 03.45 hours, 18 February 2012, the Duty Officer at Fontana Police Station received a telephone call from the nightclub “Moon Light” located at Cedar Street 37, Fontana. The caller identified himself as Leonardo, the bartender of the nightclub.  He stated that a fatal shooting had taken place there 15 minutes earlier.  A patrol team, consisting of UN Police (UNPOL), local police and an interpreter was dispatched to the scene and arrived at 04.00 hrs. One local officer and one UNPOL officer stayed at the entrance of the nightclub in order to control entry into the building. A second team consisting of another UNPOL officer , a local officer and the interpreter entered the bar, where they found the body of a male about 35-40 years old, lying near the bar on the floor.  He appeared to have one gunshot wound to the chest.  The UNPOL officer checked the pulse of the victim and said that the male was dead. After a detailed search of the building, the local officer recovered one empty 9 mm bullet case on the floor near the bar.  The UNPOL officer radioed the control room to seek the assistance from the criminal investigators and forensics at the scene. The local officer interviewed Leonardo who stated he had been working in this bar since November 2001.  He had not seen what happened, but one of the waitresses witnessed the incident. 
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 1
Investigators and forensics arrived at the scene at 05.00 hours.  They first interviewed the waitress, Anna Maria, aged 32. She stated that she had been a waitress in the club since February 2001.  She stated that around 03.30 hours, 18 February 2012 Shaban, the owner of Moon Light nightclub and Issa, a regular customer were drinking together. They suddenly began to argue and shout at each other.  Shaban punched Issa, who then grabbed a knife and threatened to stab Shaban if he didn’t leave him alone.  In reaction, Shaban drew his pistol and shot Issa.  He then fled in a black Mercedes.  Anna Maria stated that Issa had been a drug dealer in business with Shaban, but the business was falling in recent months and led to arguments between the two men.  She felt he would try to leave the country if he could.  The police transmitted the description and photographs of Shaban to all border crossings.
 FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 2
The body of the deceased was taken to the mortuary for forensic examination. On 19 February, an autopsy was conducted at 08.00 hours and revealed that the cause of death was a single fatal gunshot wound into the heart, and a 9-mm bullet was recovered from his body. The initial investigation identified the deceased as Issa, a 38-year old male. No other trauma was found on the body.
 FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 3
At 19.00 hrs, 21 February 2012, the border police intercepted a black Mercedes car bearing the registration number MOONLIGHT 1.  The border police officer noticed that the driver was extremely nervous during a search of the trunk.  Police recovered a 9-mm Beretta pistol that was hidden in the trunk of his car. He was unable to present any documents which could establish legal ownership of this pistol. He was thus detained on suspicion of possessing an illegal weapon, and turned over to local police who transported the suspect to the Fontana Detention Center
 FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 4
At 09.00 hours, 22 February 2012, an investigation team went to the Fontana Detention Center to interview the suspect who stated that his full name was Shaban Meherti.  He had known the deceased since boyhood, and in recent years they also had done some business together. Shaban denied that he committed the murder. However, when asked about the weapon that had been recovered from the trunk of his car, he could not produce any legal documents of ownership.  He then revealed that he and the victim had been running an illegal drug business since 2000.  During the last couple of months Issa had incurred a heavy loss in the business which had led to a strained relationship between the two.  Shaban was ready to sever business ties with Issa and had repeatedly asked him to settle his dues. On the day of murder, he admits that he punched Issa.  When Issa threatened to stab him, he shot him in the chest. 

Upon the receipt of the forensic report and considering all the evidence, the investigation unit submitted the report to the Court charging Shaban Meherti with murder and illegal possession of a firearm.  Further investigation in February resulted in a charge of dealing drugs.

NARRATIVE
Reference is made to a case report dated 18th February 2012.  Investigators arrived at the scene at 05.00 hours to conduct an interview with the waitress, Anna Maria.  She stated that Shaban owned the nightclub and that Issa came into the club at least 4 times a week.  She stated Issa was the only customer in the bar that night.  She said that Shaban and Issa ran an illegal drug business from the bar for a number of years.  Issa would bring in money and orders to Shaban, who would then take the money over the border, buy the drugs, and bring them back to the nightclub.  Shaban had a brother who worked at the border crossing and he would cross whenever he knew his brother was working.  Issa would later deliver the drugs to customers.  However, business was failing in recent months which lead to the two men to often arguing. 

Around 03.30 hrs, 18 February 2012 Shaban and Issa were drinking together, and they suddenly began arguing and shouting at each other.  Shaban punched Issa.  Issa doubled over in pain and could not breathe for a moment, and leaned against the bar for support.  Issa then grabbed a knife from the bar, threatening to stab Shaban if he didn’t leave him alone.  In reaction, Shaban drew his pistol from under his jacket and shot Issa.  Shaban tried to phone his brother to see if he was working at the border that night but got no answer.  He then ran out of the back door of the club and got into a black Mercedes with registration MOONLIGHT 1.  Anna Maria gave police a photograph of Shaban standing beside his car.  It clearly showed the license plate and Shaban.  She said that when Shaban left the club he was wearing a black leather jacket.  The police transmitted the description and photographs of Shaban to all border crossings.  Anna Maria believed that Shaban would try to leave the country if he could, and that he would probably try to go out of Border Gate Alpha 22 because it was the closest to the drug supplier’s house where he would feel safe. 
 DIALOGUE
Police Officer:             Please state your name and age for the record.
Witness:                      Anna Maria, 32

Police Officer:             What is your occupation?
Witness:                      I am a waitress at the nightclub Moon Light. I have worked there since 2001.

Police Officer:             Were you working at the nightclub on the morning of 18 February 2012?
Witness:                      Yes, I was.

Police Officer:             Please tell us what you saw happen that night.
Witness:                      It was very quiet that time, there were no other customers in the bar except for Issa.  `                        He comes into the bar at least 4 times a week. 

Police Officer:             Why does he come into the bar that often?
Witness:                      He had a drug business with Shaban, the bar owner.  Issa would bring in drug orders and the money to pay for them.  Shaban would take the money over the border and buy the drugs.  Shaban’s brother works at one of the border crossings, so Shaban would cross whenever he knew his brother was working.

Police Officer:             How long has this drug dealing been going on?
Witness:                      They have been doing this for many years.  The business has been dropping off and they began to argue recently about making money.  They were arguing just before the shooting.

Police Officer:             What were Shaban and Issa doing just before the shooting?
Witness:                      They were having drinks together.  Everything seemed okay at first, and then I heard them begin to shout at each other.  I didn’t know what was being said, but they were loud. 

Police Officer:             What happened after that?
Witness:                      Then Shaban punched Issa in the stomach.  It was so hard that Issa doubled over and could not breathe for a minute.  He leaned on the bar for support.  Suddenly he reached for a knife lying on the bar and turned to Shaban.  Issa told him to leave him alone or he would stab him.

Police Officer:             Did he stab Shaban, or try to stab him?
Witness:                      No, he just held the knife and told Shaban to leave him alone.

Police Officer:             Then what happened?
Witness:                      Shaban grabbed a gun from under his jacket and shot one time.  Issa fell to the floor.

Police Officer:             Okay, what happened next?
Witness:                      Shaban tried to call his brother, who works at the border to see if he was there.  He did not get an answer.  Shaban ran to his car and drove away.

Police Officer:             Where do you think he would go?
Witness:                      I am sure he would drive to Gate Alpha 22 because it is closest to his drug supplier’s house and if he can cross the border he will be safe.

Police Officer:             Do you know any information about Shaban’s car?
Witness:                      Yes, it is a black Mercedes with registration MOONLIGHT 1.  I have a picture of Shaban and his car.  Do you want to have it?

Police Officer:             Yes that would be very helpful.  Can you tell us what he was wearing when he left the                                     bar?
Witness:                      Yes, he was wearing a black leather jacket. 

Police Officer:             Can you think of anything else to tell us?
Witness:                      No, not at this time. 

Police Officer:             Thank you, this will conclude our interview.  If we need more information we will contact you.
Witness:                      Thank you.
