The dilemma of this scenario is the anxiety between the responsibility to evacuate the Kosovo Verification Mission (KVM) Coordination Center (CC) as directed by higher command without the local interpreters, as well as the desire to protect the local interpreters, knowing that they will face retaliations as soon as the evacuation is complete (principle of equality/inequality and the principle of protection of life).
Secondly, negative results will occur no matter which action I take in this situation. This situation is prone to conflict due to the different treatment between the UN observers/monitors and the local staff members. There are many factors inherent to my position as the Head of a KVM CC which would contribute to the development of this moral dilemma. The KVM was created by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) under a United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR). As a result, I must conduct my duties within a bureaucratic organization with a rigid hierarchical structure. I am also in charge of two groups of subordinates: the UN observers/monitors and the local interpreters. The geographic and professional isolation; as well as the urgency of the situation will probably not afford me with the time or support required to make a cogent decision.
