Greece wildfires have ‘Serious indications of arson’
July 27, 2018 | Brainwave Science
More than 15 fires broke out on three fronts in southern Greece near Athens on Monday afternoon. The blaze broke hit coastal villages popular with tourists. It has become one of the worst Greek disasters in living memory. The fire trapped dozens of people in their cars trying to flee a barreling wall of flames.
According to Greek Government, it is suspected case of arson that caused a devastating forest fire and killed at least 83 people. The blaze turned the small town of Mati east of Athens into a wasteland of death and destruction. Nearly 60 people are still being treated in hospital and 11 are in intensive care. Besides, dozens more are missing.
Civil Protection Minister Nikos Toskas claimed during a conference, ‘We have serious indications and significant findings of criminal activity concerning arson. We are troubled by many factors, and there have been physical findings that are the subject of an investigation.’ According to official reports, police were investigating how the fire started from three different locations at the same time, on a day when a second major fire was raging west of the Greek capital.
Monday’s tragedy has become Greece’s worst wildfires in more than a decade. But many Greeks were asking how so many scattered fires had broken out in so short a span and spread with such fatal velocity. ‘Those fires are not so innocent,’ officials say.
But despite the fact that fires near populated areas in Greece are often blamed on arsonists believed to be targeting forest land for development, arrests are rare. That is why law enforcement agencies should improve or change their methods of solving such horrible crimes. And the use of modern technologies can become a great instrument in this process.
iCognative by Brainwave Science is a special test that can be applied in various situations including i National Security, Counterterrorism, Law enforcement, Immigration and Trafficking areas. iCognative is a state-of-the-art security solution uniquely suited for agencies looking to enhance, upgrade or supplement their traditional investigative practices.
The technology is designed to offer a powerful specific screening solution for the detection of concealed information of suspected individuals. It can detect hidden information in a brain as it involves no question answer with the suspect. iCognative test is based on recording brain responses to different stimuli but despite these complicated neurological processes involved, the technology is very simple when used. With just a few days of training, any investigator in law enforcement agencies would be ready to use it.
In the case of fires in Greece, iCognative can help to find perpetrators and put them behind bars. The test is extremely simple in its using. To conduct a iCognative test a case must be built. Confidential and relevant information (that is known only to the perpetrator and investigative agents) will be inputted as stimuli. For example, in this case we can use the time of the arson, pictures of places where the fire started, the method of arson, pictures of evidence that were found during the investigation etc. The information will be flashed in the form of pictures, words and phrases on a screen while a special headset will record brain responses to each of the stimuli. If the hidden information is present in the brain, this will be proven with the result of a simple iCognative test with 99.9% accuracy.
The use of iCognative can aid law enforcement to find perpetrators of this horrible tragedy. With the help of iCognative, the endless war against arsons in the region can be stopped and finally people will find confidence and peace.
