Many thanks for your email.
We regret to inform you that Amnesty International is unable to offer you any assistance as your case does not fall within our areas of work.
We do understand your concerns and desire that action be taken. However, our work is determined by the framework established by Amnesty International members at a global level, and all individual cases that we work on must fall within the terms established by our statute. This does not mean that we consider certain types of human rights, or human rights abuses, to be more important than others. Nor does it mean that we have reached any conclusion as to whether you may have been the victim of a human rights violation. Rather, it means that we must, to be as effective as possible, channel our limited resources towards those areas of work which we have identified as priorities.
We regret that we are unable to assist you, and we do understand the disappointment this must cause. However, we hope you are able to understand the reasons behind this. We do hope that you are able to find the help that you need elsewhere, and that your situation improves.

This will be added to the file of Mr Babacek on alleged use of mind control systems in the EU
(they then included this copy of the letter sent to Mr Mojmir Babacek on 19/7/12)
Dear Mr Babacek
Thank you for having submitted your petition to the European Parliament for its consideration. It was examined in order to assess whether the issue which you raise, falls clearly within the fields of activity of the European Union for which we are competent.
Unfortunately, I have to inform you that this was not the case, and I am therefore obliged to file your request without being able to take matters any further, pursuant to Article 201 (8) of our Rules of Procedure.

Thank you for taking the time to write.
The Bill of Rights Defense Committee advocates and organizes grassroots support for constitutional rights based on the facts reported by national media. We simply don't have the resources to do investigative journalism.
Therefore, BORDC has no institutional position on whether mind control is happening. We take the facts as they're reported, and build a grassroots response.

For your information, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is a federation of National Societies which works to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity. For doing this, it operates through and in agreement with National Societies and does not respond to individuals for personal assistance.
We suggest, therefore, that you contact the National Society based in your country and submit your request for support directly to them. Contact addresses can be found on our web site in the "directory" section. http://www.ifrc.org/address/directory.asp

Dear Mr Finch
Thank you for contacting the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon. As you may know, the ACLU of Oregon is a small, private, non-profit organization funded entirely by private donations. Typically, the cases we accept are handled by lawyers in private practice who donate their time. As a result, we offer legal assistance in only a small number of cases each year.
Consequently, we must choose cases that most clearly invoke significant civil rights and civil liberties issues. We focus on protecting the rights of individuals to be free from excessive government intrusion and the right to receive equal protection under the law. These liberties include the rights of freedom of speech, press and religion, the right to be treated equally and without discrimination on the basis of race and sex, and the right to be free of abusive police conduct. Among these cases, we are forced to limit our representation to “impact cases” i.e., those that present new legal issues or affect large numbers of people.
We cannot assist in cases that depend on establishing facts. We are generally unable to get involved in disputes between private parties, with private employers, or private organizations. We also cannot intervene in a situation where an attorney has already been retained unless the attorney personally requests assistance, and even then, all the other criteria are still in place.
Based on the above criteria, we have concluded the ACLU is unable to provide you assistance. Please be assured, however, that this does not reflect on the worthiness of your case.
I have enclosed the ACLU of Oregon’s Referral and Information sheet. One of the organizations listed may be able to assist you. I regret we are unable to help you further.

We are writing to advise you on our ongoing work and plans for the next meeting of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues. We appreciate the time that you have taken to engage with us.
We would like to clarify for your information that the Commission is not investigating or reviewing any concerns or complaints concerning claims about targeted individuals. This includes claims concerning: MK-ULTRA; COINTELPRO; electromagnetic torture or attacks; organized stalking; remove influencing; microwave harassment; covert harassment and surveillance; human tracking; psychotronic or psychotropic weapons and radio frequency or military weapons or other claims.
As such the Commission will not hear further testimony on these subjects. Many of these issues have been investigated in the past. The Commission is not a law enforcement, regulatory or legislative body. It does not control any federal monies. In addition, the Commission has no involvement with the public or private grants and has no power to open or undertake criminal cases.
As advisors to the President, we will ensure that all of your concerns, information and testimony are provided to the White House. We sincerely appreciate your interest in the work of the Commission and the time you have taken to share your personal history with us.

Our Reference: OTP-CR-70/07/002
The Hague, Tuesday 27 November 2012
On behalf of the Prosecutor, I acknowledge receipt of your communication received on 1/10/2012.
According to our records, you have sent three or more communications to the Office of the Prosecutor dealing with matters which are substantially the same as those already examined by it.
As noted in our previous responses, the matter described in your communication does not appear to fall within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (“the Court”), and the Prosecutor has confirmed that there is not a basis to proceed with further analysis in the absence of new facts or evidence.
The Office has carefully examined your latest communication and has re-confirmed that it does not introduce new facts or evidence altering the conclusion that there is not a basis to proceed under the Statute.
I hope you will understand that the Court is governed by Rome Statute, which provides a very specific and carefully defined jurisdiction and mandate over the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole, under strict conditions specified under the Statute. As a result, many serious allegations will be beyond the reach of this institution to address.
Please understand that, given our carefully defined mandate and limited resources, where a person submits a succession of communications or seeks repeatedly to introduce the same matter, the Office is not able to continue further correspondence with that person on subsequent related communications.

The ACLU of Wisconsin Foundation is a private, not-for-profit organization that accepts very few cases for direct representation, and lacks the staff or resources to act as a general legal clinic or discuss individual cases on a person to person basis. We do not have the ability to offer immediate assistance in emergency situations. We also rely on individuals who were personally affected by the governmental agency’s or public entity’s violation of civil liberties rights to file a formal request for assistance to consider looking into the matter. If you are contacting us to request legal assistance, you must make the request to our legal department. Please follow these instructions:
If you have a Civil Liberties complaint and want to be considered for our assistance, please go to our website (www.aclu-wi.org), click on “Get Legal Help” (http://www.aclu-wi.org/get-legal-help) and read the information on the page. After reading the information, if your situation fits our criteria of acceptable cases, click on “fill out our online form”, complete the form and submit it to us for our review. You will receive a written response after careful review and consideration. It typically takes at least 8-10 weeks for an individual request to be processed.
If you cannot complete the form due to disability, you can call (414) 272-4032, Ext. 214, and leave a voicemail message, and someone from the legal department will contact and assist you.
Please be advised that this is not a promise of assistance. Because the process of reviewing your request may take some time, you should continue to take whatever steps are necessary to protect your interests. All legal claims have deadlines; you are responsible for making sure any such deadlines are met. The ACLU/WIF is a private, not-for-profit organization that accepts very few cases for direct representation. Should we decide to take your case, our assistance may be limited to certain issues, and it may require a lengthy time to find a volunteer attorney.
If your inquiry is regarding general information on a civil liberties issue, you can try our website, www.aclu-wi.org, or, ACLU’s national website, www.aclu.org, which is full of previous ACLU Reports and other useful information that may be helpful to you.

CAPITAL DISTRICT MEN CHARGED IN CONSPIRACY TO PROVIDE MATERIAL SUPPORT TO TERRORISTS
Scheme included creation of a remotely operated X-ray radiation emitting device designed to kill humans silently
ALBANY, NEW YORK - United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Special Agent in Charge Andrew Vale of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Albany Division, today announced that Glendon Scott Crawford, age 49, of Galway, New York and Eric J. Feight, age 54, of Hudson, New York have been arrested and charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2339A. The arrests followed a lengthy investigation by the Albany FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force that began in April 2012 when authorities received information that Crawford had approached local Jewish organizations seeking out individuals who might offer assistance in helping him with a type of technology that could be used against people he perceived as enemies of Israel. If convicted, each faces a maximum sentence of fifteen years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine and a term of supervised release up to five years following any period of incarceration. Crawford and Feight are scheduled to appear today at 1:30pm before Magistrate Judge Christian F. Hummel in U.S. District Court in Albany, New York. As charged in a Complaint 1 filed in U.S. District Court in Albany, the essence of the defendants’ scheme was the creation of a mobile, remotely operated, radiation emitting device capable of killing targeted individuals silently with lethal doses of X-ray radiation. The defendants plotted to use this device against unwitting victims who would not immediately be aware that they had absorbed lethal doses of radiation, the harmful effects of which would only appear days after the exposure. This was an undercover investigation and, unbeknownst to the defendants, the device that the defendants designed and intended to use was rendered inoperable at all times and posed no danger to the public. United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian stated, “This case demonstrates how we must remain vigilant to detect and stop potential terrorists, who so often harbor hatred toward people they deem undesirable. We give special thanks to those who quickly alerted law enforcement 1 The allegations contained in the Complaint are mere accusations and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. authorities to this devious plan. I also commend the members of the Albany FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force for their unwavering commitment over the past 14 months to uncover the details of this plot, before anyone could be harmed bringing about today’s arrests.” Special Agent in Charge Andrew Vale stated, “I would like to thank all members of our Joint Terrorism Task Force for their continued commitment in ensuring the safety of our community against all threats. It is the obligation of the FBI and our law enforcement partners to protect the public when individuals create plans to commit violent acts such as those charged today. I would like to stress that operations to thwart violent plots are only successful with the cooperation of members of the public and with collaboration among federal, state and local agencies.”
New York State Police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico said, “The interception of this alleged terrorist activity would not have been possible without the determination and cooperation between state police investigators and the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. This investigation revealed unthinkable plotting and planning of terrorist activity that targeted unsuspecting innocent citizens. We remain committed to ensuring the safety of all citizens and will work diligently to identify these types of threats and stop those who seek to cause harm.
The charges today resulted from a long-term investigation conducted by the Albany FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, which includes the Department of Homeland Security, New York State Police, Albany Police Department, Troy Police Department, and New York City Police Department. The United States Attorney’s Office also acknowledged the assistance of the Criminal Division and National Security Division of the United States Department of Justice. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Stephen Green and Richard Belliss, and Counterterrorism Section Trial Attorney Joseph Kaster. Further questions or inquiries may be directed to Executive Assistant United States Attorney John G. Duncan at 518-431-0247.
The usual. They probably think you're insane. Have you tried proving that the voices are external by way of examining schizophrenia cases? The voices show up TRAINED to spy and cast their voices without revealing their own thoughts. That would be a difficult thing for a reasoning piece of one's mind to do. There appears to be a huge number of misdiagnosed schizophrenics who have evidence of this nature in their memories. You can check out my targeted individual statistics page for more info and sources:
I recommend anyone interested in knowing how foreign powers can commit electronic harassment in the United States, this is through espionage, to read this book, free at:
The book was written by two Chinese engineers, Li and Lin, who know their stuff very well. Governments have modified the same technology, precisely to use it to either carry out legitimate surveillance (the U.S. government and allies), or to perpetrate vicious electronic harassment against anyone, even abroad (foreign powers). As Li and Lin and other authors explain, the same technology, microwave noncontact motion sensing technology, can be remotely manipulated, even through the internet. My experience tells me that it can also be manipulated by encoding the electromagnetic signals with which they are remotely manipulated within the microwave signal packages of normal international telecommunications. To accomplish which a "bug" will be planted in one's home, office, and so on. The "bug" is not but a transceiver, exactly like a cell phone works. I do not know exactly how international telecommunications are being used, whether or not foreign governments actually buy lines or services. But I am positive that it is being done. My technical training neither is sufficient to tell how WI-FI and GPS signals are used for the same purpose. But, in the hands of sinister governments, a whole array of high technologies can be used to keep one electronically harassed. I will post more about it.
As a victim of electronic harassment, I take your testimony very seriously. But, as a mental health expert, I also want to make sure that you may not have other kind of problems. So it is a very tricky matter; do not even try psychiatry, they would immediately label you schizophrenic, even if you are an actual victim of electronic harassment. See, governments care more about their secrets than about one's security; so you do not have about any resources to check whether or not a mental health problem could be a part of your state of mind, which is not glad. I have full empathy for your problem because by experience I know it that one cannot seek help from the mental health system. If one does, one has to accept the likely diagnoses, i.e. schizophrenia, psychosis, delusional disorder, paranoid personality disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and the like. But, as homework, I suggest that you do take a serious look inside of you; check mental health resources by any chance. Check whatever you may need to rule out other problems: as a trained mental health clinician I know of many problems that might overlap with what you state. Ask friends, find resources even if the government is, as it is, uncooperative. As electronic harassment can also make one sick, so it is a vicious circle, and a Catch-22 because the government refuses to inform the public about electronic harassment. But without information no Court of Law will take your case and, under electronic harassment, one will be further sickened and the government will do nothing about it.

15 years ago, I asked The Scarborough Hospital to disclose my entire medical records, including hand written notes and 2 pieces of voice recordings of mental status exams conducted by The Scarborough Hospital wihout my "informed consent " (That is law ) .
They denied my request . Some International Human Rights organizations asked them to disclose them. They refused them. From this audio below from The Scarborough Hospital, we know they did not state who asked them to visit my home.
From reliable sources, I was astonished by the reason why they are systematically torturing and murdering me . I asked Canadian government to investigate the disinformation, out of thin air, which they are sharing. No response, but mad reprisals.
How? And what are happening?

In addition, they are hacking everything I am using.
