People First Party (PFP) vice presidential candidate Lin Ruey-shiung (林瑞雄) yesterday said he had come under attack from “electromagnetic waves” launched by a local intelligence unit.
“If I hadn’t quickly moved out [of my home], I would have lost my mind,” said Lin, adding that the “attack” by the National Security Bureau (NSB) started on Sept. 20 and lasted three days.
Saying that he did not expect newspapers under the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) clout to look into the case, Lin added that newspapers such as the Chinese-language Liberty Times (the -Taipei Times’ sister paper), which are not under the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) “control,” should investigate the matter.
Lin said electromagnetic waves excite nerve tissue and individuals under attack would feel restless and have trouble sleeping.
When asked whether that was how he felt, 72-year-old Lin said: “No, I’ve run away, otherwise I’d be going crazy.”
The bureau was not immediately available for comment.
Lin, an epidemiologist and National Taiwan University (NTU) professor emeritus, was chosen by PFP Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) as his running mate to secure support from Taiwan’s medical circles.
