Events of Criminal Case

Yasmine was first interrogated after the player and Carmen found a bottle of sand with a threat to the victim, and had Marina analyze it. Carmen pointed out how they spoke with Anir Aznag earlier assuming she was from the same tribe, much to Yasmine's distaste. Carmen apologized and asked about the bottle, to which Yasmine explained it was due to the refinery's false promise of a good life. The nomads were born with all they have being freedom, and she felt the refinery was taking it away. Carmen pointed out how the message was somewhat rude, causing Yasmine to walk out on them.

Yasmine was spoken to again regarding a postcard sent to her from her son in America. She thanked the player for finding it, saying it was precious to her. Carmen was surprised her son moved to America given how proud of their nomadic traditions Yasmine was, then Yasmine pointed out how many young men abandon the nomadic way of life. She also explained she met with the victim again to apologize for her behavior and asked him if he knew her son. However, Donald simply laughed and threw the postcard to the wind, pointing out how big of a place America is.

At the climax of the investigation, the evidence pointed to Yasmine as Donald Barnes' killer. Mama Yasmine had told the team again and again that she would not speak to foreigners when they came to arrest her. Yasmine told the player that they had underestimated her by saying her mind was just as simple as her life, but Carmen had finished summarizing Yasmine’s details of the murder. Yasmine confessed to the murder as she told the team that she was angry of Anir running to them rather than helping her discard the evidence. Carmen questioned her thoughts as Yasmine had claimed that her tribe and Anir’s had feuded for generations, but Yasmine explained that in the olden days, the tribes had put aside their differences to defeat a common enemy. The nomad requested the player to take her to prison as she had lost her freedom a long time ago.

Yasmine then explained to Judge Adaku that she and her people were against the refinery and the foreigners exploiting their land as well as destroying their traditions. The judge told Yasmine that hatred and murder were the oldest traditions in history and they were not worth saving, so he sentenced the nomad to 20 years in prison.
