I do not know why the commissary summoned me to his office. It's "an urgent mission," he told me over the phone, but he did not want to clarify anything else. As if we did not have enough at the police station with the Mobile World Congress, the mobile phones brought Barcelona together with people and work. I do not know which one.
Well, maybe I can relax from the hustle and bustle. A silent investigation, that's what I need. For example, an assault case in a bakery, which now I want a good croissant.
MWC 2018: day 1
– You will have to infiltrate the Mobile World Congress as a journalist to take advantage of these conditions and interview the participants without suspicion until you find a patent thief.
The inspector looked at the superior with a face that blended incredulity, surprise and ignorance. Much more of the latter; which increased as the commissioner detailed the details of the case.
-Iván, you must locate a technology expert who came to the conference to steal the implementation of 5G protocols in experimental broadcast cells owned by Techmix. They save energy while expanding their range of coverage and speed, which makes them much more efficient.
On the inspector's face, it seemed like suddenly they were talking to him in Chinese.
"Between us, Commissar," interrupted Ivan. Do you have any idea what you're telling me?
No one, Inspector. I just read what you put in the case file.
– And how do you want me to find a 5G thief if I do not understand what it is or how it works?
The commissioner got up from his chair, closed the file with all the documents of the case, handed it to the subordinate and indicated with gestures where the door of the office was.
– That's your problem. You have four days.
The police inspector accredited as a journalist
I've been in there for half an hour now and the only thing I've seen is cabinets with lights, receptionists and people who give things away. I did not know this was a flea market, they threw themselves into presents like hyenas throwing themselves through the flesh thrown by zookeepers. There's even ice cream! And I thought the people here came to work and do business … Anyway, you have to infiltrate, I go to one of those ice creams. And for such a green doll, which my son certainly likes.
