Dan Briggs goes to the theater he request to watch a documentary. The attendant tells him to go to the fourth end seat on the right side. There, he (Briggs) will find the tape which contains the mission briefing. He then goes to the projection booth and inserts the slides into the projector. Dan then sits down in the fourth row, in the end seat on the right side, and plays the mission briefing.
Good evening Mr. Briggs.
This is Anton Cardinal Vossek, who, despite being 80 years of age and physically infirm, is nonetheless the acknowledged leader of his country's freedom movement. The government towards whose overthrow Cardinal Vossek is working has arrested him, preparatory to a trial before a people's court which is certain to convict him. He's being held for interrogation on the top floor of this building--Seravno Prison, which is located immediately adjacent to the city's main park.
Seravno Prison is considered the most impregnable in Eastern Europe. No escape has ever been made from it.
Mr. Briggs, your mission if you decide to accept it, would be to rescue Cardinal Vossek.
As always, should you or any member of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.
In any event, please dispose of this tape recording as directed.
Dan throws the tape into a nearby ashtray, where it catches fire and is destroyed.
