Politico, a political expert, reports on victim testimony and obtaining a prosecutor’s paper at the time
(Washington = Yonhap News) Correspondent Kim Kyung-hee = The victim revealed that the US State Department identified the high-frequency energy attack as the cause of ‘Havana Syndrome’ early and blocked public discussion for years.
Politico, a political media outlet, reported on the 25th (local time) that the US State Department conducted a medical examination in the first half of 2018 that specified ‘targeted energy exposure’ on two Havana syndrome victims working overseas.
The test papers released by Politico indicate that the test is for ‘targeted energy exposure’ of overseas workers.
They returned to their home countries immediately after testing.
One of the victims, Mark Renji, who complained of symptoms while working in Guangzhou, China, disclosed the test strip to Politico and revealed that the State Department had blocked contact with Congress and related agencies on the matter.
Renji, who worked as an embassy security engineer at the end of 2017, was only able to leave Guangzhou six months after reporting symptoms to his boss after he was determined to be a target for energy exposure.
Renji insisted that the State Department hid cases of himself and other victims and did not report relevant information to Congress.
He accused the State Department of retaliating for Renji for publicizing the matter and cooperating with Congressional investigations, he said.
Havana Syndrome, a group outbreak of US diplomats serving overseas, is a neurological disease of unknown etiology that accompanies dizziness, headache, fatigue, nausea, and cognitive impairment.
Since it was first reported in Havana, the capital of Cuba in 2016, there have been successive cases of damage in China, Europe, and Asia. More than 200 victims have been identified so far.
After Joe Biden took office as president, as the seriousness of the problem has been pointed out one after another, a separate team has been formed within the CIA to investigate.
Earlier this month, President Biden signed a law providing assistance to victims of Havana Syndrome.
