Singapore holds eight men for Planning Terror Attacks

SITUATION
Singapore detained eight Bangladeshi men plotting terror attacks in their home country. Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs said they were members of the Islamic State in Bangladesh (ISB) set up in March. “ISB poses a security concern to Singapore because of its support for ISIS and its readiness to resort to the use of violence overseas,” said a spokesperson from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The Singapore Ministry said the eight men detained had intended to join Islamic State (IS) as foreign fighters. A document titled “We need for Jihad Fight” was recovered from one of the men, containing a list of Bangladeshi government leaders, military officials, media personnel, and “disbelievers” who were potential targets. Officials added that money, bomb-making instructions, documents on weapons, IS, and Al-Qaeda, and extremist recruitment material were seized from the men.
CHALLENGE
This is the second detainment in six months Bangladeshis in Singapore were investigated for terror charges. In a country where there are 1.4 million foreign workers amongst a population of 5.4 million people, identifying suspicious activity pose a serious challenge for Singaporean law enforcement.
“Islamist militants in Bangladesh have targeted atheist bloggers, academics, religious minorities and foreign aid workers in a series of killings that date back to February 2015 and have claimed at least 20 lives,” stated Reuters. It is unclear whether the eight men detained planned to take any malicious action in Singapore. This does not diminish the associated risks terror groups pose in Singapore and Bangladesh.
WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING
Brain Fingerprinting is an advanced means to identify whether a suspect is a terrorist without necessitating physical evidence, such as money, documents on weapons, ISIS, al-Qaeda that were uncovered in this particular incident. With unprecedented levels of accuracy, it identifies whether a person is involved with terrorist organizations, and more importantly, which group he/she is affiliated with at which hierarchical level, using memory-related neurological responses directly from the brain. Suspected persons in Bangladesh or foreign workers in Singapore can be properly screened using a specific screening solution, used to identify whether one harbors incriminating information.
In Brain Fingerprinting tests conducted at the FBI, CIA, U.S Navy, and elsewhere, it is scientifically proven to identify IED/EOD bomb-makers as well as FBI Agents, by flashing acronyms and phrases specifically known to these control groups on a computer screen. Detecting information is key to accelerate the investigation process. Quality intelligence gathering is the way forward in proactively foiling terror plots and intercepting criminals before crimes are committed. Brain Fingerprinting is purpose-built to fulfill the dynamic and complex needs of law enforcement in the fight against terrorism today.
