After the team witness the horrible choice of the president, with Chief Wilson the player went to arrest new Romanian president Rares Simionel. After they arrived into the Assembly, they were stopped by Elena Repkova, now assistant of the president. After some argument and arrest threats Elena said to the team to wait while she will get the president for a talk. A moment later a scream came from the president's office which was an alarm for the team that something happened there. As they enter the president's office they found, in the bathroom, a body of the Nazi president Rares Simionel with his head totally destroyed.

With the lack of the time, Chief Wilson said that he will assist the player during this case. Next to the body, the player found a bloody hammer which they determine to be a murder weapon. As the person who find him dead, the team first spoke to his assistant Elena. Later how the investigation progress the team flagged and ex-president Alin Tanase and one of the protesters Adi Hagi.

Quickly they went there to stop the madness and took away a leader of resistance force Vasilescu Constantinescu. When the move all the protesters and rioters back the player and Chief Wilson searched the area. They soon learned that artist Nicu Raducanu gave the figure to the victim with the LEGION symbol but that he deny any involvement with them and just that the victim ordered the figure from him. A while later the team found that Elena signed a restriction order against the victim that she explained that she couldn't handle to be next to possessive and aggressive human who only thinks about himself, as she continues she said that he also used to treat his people very badly and that she would very congrats anyone who killed him. The analyze of the gold bar proved that Alin gave it to the victim. she said that she gave that bar to him just to save her country and with the thought that if she bride him he would be slighter and stop his sick dream about ruling the world. Instead, he killed her family on the spot.

As the team back to the Headquarters, they got alerted that Vasilescu lurking around victim's villa with the Molotov cocktail and that he is ready to burn it down. Chief Wilson and the player approached Vasilescu to arrest him from rioting. He said that people should be free to do whatever they want and that capitalistic-nazistic building need to be destroyed, all far rights death and make for the new ideology - communism and that he will use every possible ways to get Romanian on the steps on communism again. The team again spoke with Adi after the player recovered his sign "Death to Dictator".

He said that he had feels for him but he knew that he would never back that love he has for him.

When the last evidence was found the player put Alin Tanase behind bars. When she finally confessed that she killer Rares she said that she did it for the sake of her country, Europe and the world. She continued and said that the guy was always a big Nazi idealist who wanted to destroy the world, to rule the world, to be a new Hitler. She couldn't handle how Rares take the country and the world into the new conflict just because of some crazy ideology so she decided to stop him on her own. She prepared a big hammer that she hid in the bathroom before she lost elections. Then, when she took care that no one see her sneak inside she hid in the bathroom waiting for Rares to came. When he came inside, she knocked him and continues to hit him until his skull was completely destroyed. On everyone's surprise Judge Andrich congrats Alin for killing ultra nationalist and sentenced her to 24 hours in the custody.
