According to the authorities gang stalking does not exist. However it is public knowledge that organised harassment of whistleblowers does exist. And the tactics used against whistleblowers are the same tactics that targets of gang stalking complain of.
Which are as follows:-
1. Harassment of whistleblowers is intended to intimidate the majority into compliance. If you “commit the truth” this will happen to you.
2. Spotlight the whistleblower. Make out the whistleblower is the problem to distract attention from the actual problem. Attacking the whistleblower is a cover-up procedure.
3. Retaliatory investigations on trumped up charges. Accusations of criminal activity.
4. Smear campaigns.
5. Whistleblower subjected to spying.
6. Never-ending investigations of the whistleblower to destroy credibility. This is also a tactic used by the police.
7. Alleging the whistleblower has mental health issues, is crazy.
8. Re-write the whistleblowers work history to change the record from that of a good employee to a troublemaker.
9. Non-disclosure agreements (gagging) with draconian penalties. The initiative as to how interpreted with the employer.
10. Sacked, given a bad reference and blacklisted.
11. Isolate the whistleblower professionally.
12. Set them up for failure with impossible work demands.
13. Trivialise whistleblowers complaints. Make out they are exaggerating.
14. Don’t allow evidence of malpractice to surface. Prevent a paper trail. Lose or destroy any incriminating records.
15. Audit investigations to ensure incriminating evidence is deleted. We also see this practiced in court proceedings, when relevant evidence is ruled inadmissible.
16. Threats and physical attacks. Dr Jeffrey Wigand received anonymous death threats. Dr James Murtagh suffered arsenic poisoning. Silkwood’s home became an inexplicable radiation hot spot and she died in a car “accident”.
Most of this information was derived from Chapter Two of “The Corporate Whistleblower’s Survival Guide” by Tom Devine and Tarek F Maassarani.
The story of Dr Jeffrey Wigand’s conflict with a tobacco firm is covered in the film “The Insider”.
Silkwood’s story is covered in a film of that name. Also there is a book, “The Killing of Karen Silkwood” by Richard Rashke.
