Valora, S.A. is the banknote printing company ant it is 100% owned by Banco de Portugal. It has been operating at the premises of Banco de Portugal in Carregado since 1999. Valora produces all the euro banknotes that are allocated by the Euro system to the Bank of Portugal, which has recently created an investment fund to finance social solidarity and NGO projects. One of the institutions the bank supports is the Mission Health for Humanity, which has made an important contribution to the hope project. This project started in 2009 in Guinea-Bissau and consists of welcoming to Portugal patients in need of medical/surgical treatments that are crucial for their survival and that they cannot access in their country due to socio-political conditions.
Yesterday, there was a robbery at Valora, S.A. The robbers took thousands of euros in banknotes that were dedicated to finance the health care project, but they also stole the software that produces the bank notes and some critical data the NGO and its project.
The judicial police are investigating the robbery, which could lead to the collapse of the sustainable health care promotion investment fund. With the collapse of this investment fund, several children’s lives are at stake. The Bank of Portugal gave 45 minutes to the judicial police, in the premises of the factory, find clues and evidence leading to the arrest of the robbers and the recovery of the banknote production plates in order to return the investment fund to bring African children to Portuguese hospitals.
Ultimate mission: You are part of the judicial police and the Bank of Portugal counts on you to inspect the premises of the factory in order to find clues and evidence to find where the robbers are hiding the money, the bank notes production software and the data about NGOs. You have one hour to solve all this and arrest the robbers and find where they hide themselves. If you fail, the social fund for children of Africa is being condemned.
