FIRST PART of CLA (Reading)
REPORT
On Friday 12 October 2011, United Nations Police (UNPOL) Officer Mr. Amir Farrell finished his duty at 15.30 hours. He was attached to the Sector Civil Affairs Team (SCAT) at Linou Police station. Officer Farrell served with the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP). He was off duty for the Saturday and Sunday and had planned to do some sightseeing on the Island of Cyprus. He had applied through his Team Leader for personal use of a UN vehicle during these days. His team leader agreed and UNPOL Officer Farrell was given approval for the use of UN vehicle 725 for the weekend.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 1
On Friday night UNPOL Officer Farrell socialized with a number of colleagues at the Brickyard Bar in Nicosia which was visited by many UN personnel. The UN personnel enjoyed a great night without incident. However, when leaving the bar, Officer Farrell did notice that two young Greek males in the smoking area were watching them suspiciously. Officer Farrell did not drink that night and gave a lift to four of his colleagues in UN vehicle 725 to their residences.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 2
On Saturday 13 October 2011, UNPOL Officer Farrell and one of his colleagues from Montenegro, UNPOL Officer Mr. Dragic travelled in vehicle # UN 725 to the North of the Island. UNPOL Farrell entered “850” code into the car log which recorded personal use of the vehicle. They crossed to the Northern side of the Island at 09.00 hours via the Exchange crossing point in Nicosia. They drove from Nicosia to Kyrenia and first climbed the St. Hillarion Castle which dated back to the 10th century. They then had lunch at the town and later swam in the sea of the coast of Kyrennia and returned to Nicosia at 21.00 hours by crossing from the North into the South at the Exchange crossing point at Ledra Palace Hotel. When returning to Nicosia, the Officers agreed to meet again at the Brickyard Bar at 23.00 hours. Some other colleagues joined them at the Brickyard Bar.
UNPOL Officer Farrell saw the same two Greek males he had noticed the previous night at the smoking area in the bar watching them. Officer Farrell and his colleagues spoke with a number of local females who had been in their company. At the end, Officer Farrell again travelled home alone in the UN vehicle as he did not drink. He parked the UN vehicle in the driveway of his rented house, locked it up and went to bed.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 3
The next day, Officer Farrell got out of bed around 11.00 hours. He went for a 5-kilometer run, and around 13.00 hours he left his home with the intention of going to the UN Base to meet friends and to watch a football match together. He got into his vehicle and tried to reverse it out of the driveway. It was difficult for him to move the vehicle. Officer Farrell got out and went around the vehicle to check what the problem was. He found out that, both tires on the left hand side of the vehicle had been slashed and a knife was stuck in one of the tires. UNPOL Officer Farrell contacted the Force Military Police Unit (FMPU) and notified them of the damage to his vehicle. He also gave them directions to his home located at 23 Eleni Avenue, Engomi, Nicosia. The scene was attended by FMPU Officer Ms. Julie Maher. She noted the damage to Officer Farrell’s UN vehicle and details of the knife used. She also contacted her Cypriot Police (CYPOL) counterpart who also attended the scene. The CYPOL photographed the scene and took the knife for forensic examination. They also sought to locate surveillance cameras from the area. FMPU Officer Maher made arrangements to interview Officer Farrell at the FMPU police station the following day.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 4
On Monday morning at 8.00 hours Officer Farrell reported at the FMPU station to give his statement of the events. Officer Maher took the statement of Officer Farrell’s activities over the weekend. At the end of the statement FMPU Officer Maher showed Officer Farrell some pictures from the area surveillance cameras taken close to the scene of the incident. Officer Farrell clearly identified one of the Greek males who had been looking closely at him at the Brickyard Bar. Officer Maher promised to pass the information on to the CYPOL. Officer Farrell later contacted the Transport section about the damage to the UN vehicle and they arranged to tow the vehicle to the UN Base for repair.

NARRATIVE
Reference is made to the incident of vehicle damage regarding UN vehicle number UN 725 which occurred on Sunday 14 October 2011. During further investigation of the case, it was revealed that, on the night of Saturday 13 October 2011, Officer Farrell spoke with the same local girl he had danced with the previous night, named Maria. Officer Farrell had been talking with her for the last two weekends. The two Greek males were both in their 20s and approximately 160 cm, one had a yellow stripe in his hair and the other had a green stripe. The Greek Cypriot male with the green stripe in his hair was identified on the surveillance cameras located near the scene of the crime as one of those who were looking closely at Officer Farrell at the Brickyard Bar. Sergeant Maher indicated that the man identified was the boyfriend of the local girl, Maria who Officer Farrell had been dancing and conversing with for the past weeks.  

Police investigation revealed that the suspect identified by Officer Farrell was on a police wanted list. His name was David Papandreu, and he was charged with assault in September 2010. He was subsequently granted bail but failed to report to police as agreed and ran away about a year ago. In that case, he severely beat his girlfriend named Vassilka Kostova who was rushed to the Cyprus General Hospital where she had a miscarriage of a three-month pregnancy.  

It was further revealed that the relationship between Maria and her boyfriend David had worsened because David had constantly been beating Maria.

However, David had continued to try to reconcile with Maria. He believed that her association with Officer Farrell would cause further damage to their relationship. David later admitted having damaged the tires of UN vehicle number 725. The Cypriot Police charged him with Assault of his girlfriend and Causing Damage to the UN vehicle. The CYPOL refused to release David on bail due to his previous escape and promised to prosecute him within 48 hours as the Cyprus law stipulates. Meanwhile Officer Farrell was directed by the UN Transport Section to report to the UN Security for his statement to be taken as required by the rules.
DIALOGUE
UNPOL Commander: Good morning, Officer Farrell. As a commander of your unit, I would appreciate if you could give me a brief update on the ongoing investigation about the incident involving damage to the UN vehicle number 725.
Officer Farrell: I am prepared to give the update.   

UNPOL Commander: What happened at the Brickyard Bar on the night of Saturday, 13 October 2011?
Officer Farrell: I spoke with the same local girl I had danced with the previous night whose name is Maria. In fact I had been talking with her for the last two weekends. During the conversation with Maria, I noticed that the same two Greek males who were watching me the previous night at the bar were again looking at us closely from a distance.

UNPOL Commander: Can you describe those two males?
Officer Farrell: They are both in their 20s and approximately 160 cm tall. One of them had a yellow stripe in his hair and the other had a green stripe.

UNPOL Commander: Anything else about them?
Officer Farrell: Yes. The one with a green stripe in his hair was later identified in the surveillance cameras which were located near the scene of crime. The FMPU Officer, Sergeant Maher indicated that the man who was identified in the camera was the boyfriend of Maria named David Papandreu. This is the girl I have been dancing and conversing with for the past weeks.

UNPOL Commander: Was David arrested as a suspect?
Officer Farrell: Yes, he was. In fact, further investigations revealed that he was on a police wanted list. David was reported to have severely beaten his former girlfriend named Vassilka Kostova and was charged with assault in September 2010.

UNPOL Commander: Was he prosecuted in 2010?
Officer Farrell: No, Commander. He was granted bail after being charged with the offense but failed to report to police as agreed and ran away about a year ago.

UNPOL Commander: What happened to the girl who was severely beaten?
Officer Farrell: Vassilka was rushed to Cyprus General Hospital where she had miscarriage of a three-month pregnancy.

UNPOL Commander: That was sad. Why was Maria conversing and dancing with you at the bar when she knew her boyfriend was around?
Officer Farrell: Investigation also revealed that for the past three months the relationship between Maria and her boyfriend had worsened due to constant beatings he had given Maria. He believed that her association with me would cause further damage to their relationship.  

UNPOL Commander: What is the intended action of the police?
Officer Farrell: CYPOL has charged him with Assault of his girlfriend and Causing Damage to the UN vehicle. However, he was refused bail due to his previous escape and the police promised to prosecute him within 48 hours according to Cypriot laws.

UNPOL Commander: Is there any ongoing investigation by UN into the damage to the vehicle?  
Officer Farrell: I have just been directed by the UN Transport Section to report to the UN Security for my statement as required by the rules.

UNPOL Commander: Thank you, Mr. Farrell, for your time and the detailed briefing. 
Officer Farrell: It’s my pleasure, Madam.
