Case 34-2017: Aum Shinrikyo & Aleph
Notification to Scotland Yard
On July 06, 2018, an International Notification to Scotland Yard was made as a result that on 4 July 2018 two British citizens, Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturguess, would have been seriously intoxicated with the nerve gas “Novichok”, which would be the same toxin used against the Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal. Because this event is serious and should be approached with the utmost seriousness, the International Buddhist Law puts all its knowledge at the service of anti-terrorism.
Therefore, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is communicating with the Scotland Yard to confirm them that there is the possibility that this event is not the product of random intoxication, but it might be a test to carry out future terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom. However, although the secretary of the interior of the United Kingdom has stated that the Russian government could be behind this new event, the criminological analyzes of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights indicate that there is another alternative explanation. Given the fact that the possible “Novichok” nerve gas terrorist attack against two British citizens was carried out only 24 hours before the execution or death sentence of Shoko Asahara, leader of the criminal organization Aum Shinrikyo (Aleph), this would probably not be mere coincidence, especially considering that this international criminal sect carried out multiple terrorist attacks in Japan with the result of dozens of deaths and thousands of wounded by mean of using sarin gas. As the Aum Shinrikyo (Aleph) organization was investigated arduously by the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, and was sentenced as Responsible for Organized Crime, Terrorism and Crimes against Humanity and Peace, the modus operandi of the followers of Shoko Asahara is well known, and it is also known that they have the financial and technological means to carry out all kinds of terrorist attacks throughout the world, since they have even experimented with bacteriological and nuclear weapons in the past. Moreover, it is confirmed that Aum Shinrikyo (Aleph) was also investigated and banned in Russia, where they could have illegally acquired nerve gas “Novichok”.
Finally, in order to save lives, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights recommends the Scotland Yard to investigate if there is any member of the Aum Shinrikyo (Aleph) group residing in the United Kingdom, because if so, there is a significant probability that they are planning future terrorist attacks.
Always with spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
