As far as the Village Administration goes, just when did they get to know of the Prisoner-Number 6's potential arrival? How much advanced notice did they need? It's alright for the Prisoner to go and hand in his letter of resignation, and subsequently be abducted to the Village, to wake up in what appears to be his own home.
All in all, the Village Administration has to have advanceed warning of any potential arrival, to make ready their 'Home from Home.'
Be seeing you
