Chinese Embassy attack- Kyrgyzstan
According to the Shanghai list, it was reported that Kyrgyzstan authorities have blamed Uighur militants for the suicide bombing on the Chinese embassy that occurred on August 30th, 2016 in Bishkek.
The attack was carried out by a driven car smashing through the gates before exploding in the embassy compounds. The blast left the driver later identified as Zoir Khalilov, an ethnic Uighur, dead and injuring 3 Kyrgyz nationals working as security guards at the compound.
According the Shanghai list, Kyrgyzstan State Security Service said the suicide bomber held a Tajik passport and a member of the Eat Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM).
In the course of investigation, “ it was established that the terrorist attack was ordered by Uygur terrorists groups active in Syria and affiliated to the terrorist organization the Nusra Front whose emissaries financed the terrorist action” according to South China Morning Post.
State Security Service also added that a Kyrgyzstan native living in Turkey with the help of a Syrian explosive specialist holding a Tajik passport coordinated the attack. Five other suspects involved in the attack have been arrested while four others are suspected to be in Turkey. The suspects arrested are Southern Kyrgyz nationals except for the suicide bomber.
The complex web of events has made the region contentious and volatile. For some time, China has been accusing ETIM of scaling up attacks and raising tensions in the western region of Xinjiang, while some experts claim that escalation in violence is caused by China’s treatment of ETIM and other Uighurs fuels the unrest, sympathy and support breeding resentment abroad.
Is there a way of identifying possible terror suspects and networks in the region? Can technology help is solving these heinous crimes regardless of the cause? Brain Fingerprinting technology can help.
WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING
Brain Fingerprinting technology in this instance, in the area of counter-intelligence can be used for suspect identification, suspect line up and link analysis. It can tell suspect(s) intent and affiliation with certain terror groups, persons of interest, weapons or explosive knowledge and other related evidence related to a terrorist plot.
Brain Fingerprinting is a highly advanced technology apparatus that offers an objective and knowledge-based means of identification. By analyzing specific brain responses called the P300 and P300 MERMER, the solution safely and non-invasively verifies whether the information contained in the person’s account is present in his/her brain. Inversely, the system can detect the information a suspect would deny knowing terrorist affiliations and probe behavioral façades.
The capability to detect whether specific information is stored in a person’s brain is unparalleled—no other security solution in the world offers a powerful specific screening solution that is able to efficiently answer to the crisis of terrorism globally. Investigation and background checks are exorbitantly time-consuming, interrogation is most often unreliable, and biometric identification cannot reveal what information the person is harboring.
Investigators now are faced with ever more growing number of lone wolves, therefore access for investigative purposes becomes increasingly difficult. This is a problem with especially high profile suspects. Law enforcement agents need an alternative source of intelligence gathering to collect and analyze critical information. This information could disrupt or foil a terrorist attack or hate crimes before it develops, making it extremely harder for future plots. Brain Fingerprinting is an advanced means of getting intelligence, eliminating number of suspects, highly accurate tool to corroborate/ cross verify assumptions and leads.
