PAUSE

On 15 May 2003 at 14.30 hrs investigation officer of the police station # 2 received a telephone call from the chief of the boarder-crossing checkpoint # 5. The caller asked the investigation officer to come to the boarder crossing immediately. On arrival at the checkpoint he saw a big truck registration number 376 KS 941 and the ambulance.

The chief of the boarder-crossing checkpoint explained, that this day at 12.15 hrs., they stopped a big truck, leaving the country to check the cargo documents. The cargo appeared to be 2000 big boxes of cigarettes.

The driver of the truck a 42-year old male, 178 cm tall, with sunglasses, muscular built, with short black hair, dressed in blue jeans, green shirt and black military style boots gave necessary cargo documents. The documents were OK, but when one of the border police officers began checking capacity of the boxes in the truck he heard a faint groan inside the truck.

At first he did not believe what he heard, but after some time he heard the same sound again. He asked the driver of the truck if he had anything illegal in the truck. The driver said, that he did not understand what he was talking about.

The 3 boarder police officers began removing boxes from the truck. Box number 36 was heavier than the others and officers decided to open this box. When the officers opened the box they saw a young woman in this box. She was about 25 years old, 170 cm tall, with long fair hair and gray eyes.  She was dressed in blue and white colored sports costume and white running shoes. She was unconscious and could not speak. The border police called for an ambulance.  When the ambulance arrived the woman was already able to speak and asked for a glass of water. The doctor said, that there was no danger to her life and advised, that the woman needed some fresh air and rest.

The chief of the border-crossing checkpoint also added, that he spoke with the woman and she revealed, that her father was the owner of the cigarette trading company named “Blend of freedom”. The driver of the truck had kidnapped her on 13 of May 2003 at 08.00 hrs when she was jogging in the park and now demanded her father to pay 20000 Euros to have his daughter back. She did not remember when and how she was in the truck, because the kidnapper gave her an injection with a syringe and she fell asleep.

The driver of the truck tried to flee across the border, but was caught by the boarder police and arrested. The woman gave the telephone number of her father’s office as 239-647. The investigation officer called this number and advised the owner of the trading company about the recovery of his daughter.

The father of the kidnapped woman was advised to come to the police station # 2 on 16 of May 2003 at 10.30 hrs.

The case is under investigation.

The following conversation is the dialogue between the Chief of the police station # 2 and the investigation officer.
