Covert Torture of Political Activists: It Happens Here

by Scribd Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012 at 2:42 PM

A book by acknowledged torture victim who was a Bhutanese political activist sheds light on covert acts being used here on activists. Recently it was discovered that Ernest Hemingway was a FBI surveillance object. He suffered from depression, sexual impotence and eventual suicide. Was this the result of his ties to Fidel Castro? This book from Bhutan was analyzed by a USA activist/victim.

I HAVE NOW OBTAINED A COPY OF 'TORTURE KILLING ME SOFTLY' BY THE BHUTANESE HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST TEK NATH RIZAL, PUBLISHED BY 'HUMAN RIGHTS WITHOUT FRONTIERS, NEPAL' AND 'THE GROUP FOR INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY' IN 2009.

THERE IS A COPY OF A LETTER IN THE BOOK FROM 'SURVIVORS INTERNATIONAL (SAN FRANCISCO) WHICH PROVIDES ASSISTANCE FOR SURVIVORS OF TORTURE FROM AROUND THE WORLD' STATING MR. RIZAL WAS UNDER THEIR CARE IN 2005 IN CALIFORNIA.

AN OPENING QUOTE FROM THE PREFACE

"spending 10 years of my life in the most degrading and inhuman conditions of the Bhutanese prisons, I made a considered decision to share my experiences with the rest of the world....torture was not confined to primitive physical assault by using whips, chains and giving electric shocks but also involved application of various scientific devices...the objective was clear; destabilize the mind, induce anomalous behavioral changes and create dissociation. A combination of sensory isolation and beaming different kinds of energy in the brain was used...The subject of mind-control has been kept under carpet by the concerned states...This account should also serve as a starting point for all- in particular for researchers to adopt methods of detecting such torture in victims, for human rights activists to formulate tools to stop such unethical practice and for law makers to award stiff penalties to the perpetrators of such crimes."

From page 28-29 of "Torture Killing Me Softly"

"The device used over me was capable of manipulating my dreams and disturbing sleeping patterns, I underwent terrible nightmares...I was made to bite my tongue very hard causing it to bleed...

...Beside this I suffered sudden breathing difficulties from an unseen pressure on me...terrible headaches, severe fever, choking from food, increased palpitation of my heart, high blood pressure, nose bleeding...countless pimples all over the body and excruciating itching.

...throughout the day I had vomiting sensations and nausea...my hunger, slumber and throat were not under my control...

From "Torture Killing Me Softly page 48

"...I thought at times of committing suicide...so they evolved a strategy to get rid of me and started provoking me towards committing the real act of suicide... through mind control technique..."

and from page 46

"...To my amazement. there was something else inside the matchbox- a brand new razor blade.My whole body started shivering at this and I could not believe that the officials would stoop so low, as prisoners are strictly denied access to such risky articles."

and from page 58

"...on my way to the court, I asked the superintendent of police why and for what reasons I was being charged in the court when the government was fully aware of all my activities by exploring my mind non-stop for four years. The superintendent of police told me that the conversation between me and the mind-controller was a matter between us two and nobody knew about it, neither public nor police. He asked me not to tell these things in court so that the matter could be decided judiciously."

From Torture Killing Me Softly page 58

"In my next hearing in the court, I raised this issue of my mind-control through remote techniques, I humbly reminded the judges that the jail report of my mind-control...On hearing this, one of the judges Mr. Dine Katwal inquired about the existence of such tools and techniques in the country from the Chief Justice, who responded affirmatively. In spite of this, neither was any discussion allowed on the subject of mind-control, nor was instruction issued to the concerned authorities to stop this barbaric practice."

from page 73

"After a few days, three top officials of Amnesty International visited the jail to see my physical condition. On the day of their visit, my psychology was completely manipulated by the authorities to the extent that my mind virtually stopped working....but I was manipulated to write, through mind-control, whatever my controller wanted. This was deliberately intended to depict me as a mentally deranged person in the eyes of the international community."

COMMENT; THE CREATION OF FALSE LABELS ON VICTIMS IS THE ULTIMATE WAY TO COVER-UP WHAT ARE IN FACT POLITICAL CRIMES. REPRESSIVE REGIMES GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO CREATE FALSE INFORMATION ON POLITICAL TARGETS.

I LONG AGO POINTED OUT THAT AMERICAN WHISTLEBLOWER REX NILES WAS DISCREDITED SO HE COULD NOT TESTIFY IN A CORRUPTION CASE.

THE CIA WHISTLEBLOWER PHILIP AGEE IN HIS BOOK 'ON THE RUN' LISTED SEVERAL FALSE LABELS CREATED TO DISCREDIT HIS CLAIMS.

IT SEEMS UNBELIEVABLE THAT A PERSON'S WRITING COULD BE CONTROLLED IN SUCH A MANNER, EVEN MORE UNBELIEVABLE IS THAT WORDS CAN BE PUT IN ONE'S MOUTH, THE SPOKEN WORD CAN COME FROM A SOURCE OTHER THAN THE SPEAKER. THIS ONE REASON SUCH PEOPLE ARE CALLED 'PUPPETS'.

FROM 'TORTURE KILLING ME SOFTLY' PAGE 123

"I had high hopes that after my release, the mental torture inflicted on me would cease; on the contrary, it continued and actually intensified. The regime was now using it to ridicule me in front of the general public. As days passed, I saw some of my old acquaintances passing by but they ignored my existence. Whenever I approached a few of my surviving relatives and friends for help, they refused because the authorities had warned them in advance not to render me any assistance. Yet, the government continued to make propaganda that it was extending all facilities to me."

FROM PAGE 123

"Obviously, my release from prison in Bhutan was primarily the result of Herculean efforts of international organizations like Amnesty International, the International Red Cross, and the government of the USA as well as the efforts of civil society in Nepal and India. At the same time, the Bhutan government also had its own hidden agenda-leaving me at large only to monitor my future course of action through mind-control. Bhutan continued to threaten me through their thugs and agents to eliminate me physically. Another purpose was to defame me in the eyes of supporters and sympathizers in Nepal, India, Europe, USA and elsewhere."

FROM PAGE 136

"Though the king of Bhutan was forced to release me from the jails, due to mounting international pressure, my activities were being monitored on a regular basis, wherever I went across the globe...Bhutanese agent in Switzerland...Ms. Irene Huber informed Mr. Peter Prove, assistant to the Secretary General of the Lutheran World Federation about this incident over the phone. He cautioned her not to allow me to visit such suspicious places. He was of the opinion that Bhutanese intelligence agents might try to implicate me in some derogatory cases by taking me to such places and indulge in character assassination."

From the book "Torture Killing Me Softly" page 145

"Regarding mind-control, there are two varieties of psychological tortures and I have been a victim of both. In the first case, a constant and unfaltering internal voice keeps echoing in the mind. The victim is aware of the first condition once it is implanted in his mind, as its purpose is to inform the victim that he is under surveillance and his thoughts are directed as per the command of the controller. In the second case, information is extracted through constant invasion of the victim's mind during surveillance and his concentration flags. In this situation even the victim does not know what is happening to him. I think the second type of mind control is more dangerous than the first one, because in the first type the victim hears the sound and ultimately can be alert. Whereas, in the second type the victim does not hear any sound at all and can not be conscious about what is going on with him. This type of victim does not understand whether his thoughts are his own or he has been guided by some mechanism to think this way. And, he would take decisions, which he would never have taken in a normal state of mind. The extraction of information through the mind control mechanism becomes apparent only when the victim starts getting ill and faces weird physical problems."

From page 146

"...the Bhutanese regime might have made me a target of mind control devices when I was holding office. I remember now one such instance when I was invited as a special guest at a function of the Bhutanese military...Generally, civil servants are not invited as guests in military programms, so there could have been some other motive behind it. I was made to stay there for three days. Shortly after I left I experienced abnormal heart beats, including significantly increased palpitations...During my stay at the royal guest house, I got highly irritated and disturbed. I suddenly had an aversion towards doing anything, including my routine audit work...

From page 157

"Because of my mind control I find great difficulty in addressing public functions as I get jittery, nervous, and scared of delivering extempore speeches. At times, my voice fails me, sometimes my memory fails me, and yet other times I say something different totally unrelated to what I actually want to convey. At other times my mind goes blank, and I have no idea of where I am standing and what I am doing...this often makes me an object of ridicule in public eyes...whenever I start reading the written speech, a rainbow appears in front of my eyes; at other times my eyes get watery...I know that the regime has taken me in its grip but I am helpless to defend myself."

THIS ENDS THIS PROJECT. THERE ARE MANY OTHER IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK, I AM ONLY PRESENTING PASSAGES TO WHICH I CAN ATTEST ARE ACCURATE.
