Hey Partner, Is it you can't find the guy? Or you find him and can't elimate him?
There are two missions given by Penultimo to lower crime. Build police stations if you still have crime areas and switch to apartments as tennements have a modifier that causes crime. Shacks also cause crime. The hard part about this missions is that it's not well explained that the less crime, the more easy it is to find the agents.

Also, you have to eliminate them by accident. This is suggested in the game, but I don't think it's made clear enough. Having them arrested, assassinated selected tends to bug it. You then at times have to wait until it un-bugs or they get old and die. Always selcect arrange accident for this mission. Some reported having to do it a few times but were able to complete the mission.

Setting up guard stations around the Island also helps as it takes less time for your guards to get there.

So, less crime overall. Guard stations located in every populated place, and use accidents only.

tnanks for the answer.
I'm so lucky,my HDD was scrapped.
maybe i lost some missions before so i can't find that guy.
I built tons of guard stations to unlock the achievement in this Challenge
(Have a total of 100 Soldiers and Generals).

I tried to arrest them all prior to executing one, now it is bugged. There's no "view" option on the mission briefing and I'm pretty sure I look long enough for the exclamation marked... Looks like I'll have to wait for the agent to die...

Sadly, it looks like that simply waiting doesn't work. All my ministers have died 3 times already and nothing...

@edit 2
Looks like after lots of edicts and game saves/loads as well as restarts it now came back to normal and the view button reappeared. Stressful, but at least I'll not lose all those hours.

Hmm... I have built the police stations and guard stations and I have the "arrange accident for third agent" task. I click view and I get a rebel with no eliminate option because he is a rebel. I have tried the allow rebels back into city and eliminate rebels edict, also with no luck... anyone else getting this... How do I get this guy if I can't order him to be eliminated?

I also had the very same problem(s). Actually all of them mentioned before this post. First of all I managed to complete mission after many hours. I think problems are combination of somekind of bug and very flawed objectives. First I made very well functioning econony and got stuck for hours at not being able to kill first one. Stats of person coud be seen, but not being able to issue any "commands" ie. arrange accident at all. Solution to this was making people unhappy and then using the "Lure rebels" edict and during attact agent coud be selected to kill. Had to try this twice as in first time agent managed to get away.

Person to kill after that didn't occure at all for even though mission was available (like in screenshot). Here is I think part of the very flawled mission. I noticed that you'll get 50+ USSR relationship and it took ages for me to actually notice that my relationship was I think at 90%. I'm quite certain that game doesn't allow +100% (quite obvious). I build about 6 weapons factories and used "Pro US" edict (something like that) to lower it.

Even after that mission didn't complete, but I didn't have any rebels or criminals on island. This is where I really thought to restart mission and give up, but decided to blow up all residential, educational and religious buildings (all not critical buildings) to decrease peoples at island (set emigration allowed for not happy people or somethjng similar). _Don't demolish all soldier or police stations_ as obviously rebels will begin to attack often. People amount was around 500 to 600 originally and when more than half of building were demolished and there was around 200 to 300 people left at island, all of a sudden I could select person to kill and rest of objectives could be accomplished in less than 5 minutes.

Note that I think it was the last agent that objective mentions to use "arrange accident" feature, so it's best not use eliminate feature on that.

Real pain in the ♥♥♥ mission to complete. I think designers under estimed status players can get at this point of game and made mission very flawed. I'm quite sure that if trying to complete missions at the bare minimum efforts it'll be easy to complete. Most players are likely to get economy and people happy at very beginning at these last few missions.
