Michael Repacholi Continues to "Work" With the Mobile Phone Industry, Encouraging Children to Use Wireless Devices

In January 2008, Dr. Carlos Sosa, a medical doctor from Colombia, addressed a letter to Michael B. Mukasey, who was then serving as United States Attorney-General (November 2007 to January 2009). The letter concerned the crimes against humanity of Michael Repacholi, former director of the Electromagnetic Fields Project at the World Health Organization (WHO). 


It would appear that not only did Repacholi control the WHO EMF project from its inception, but its main source of funding was the mobile industry, as explained in this article from Mast Sanity. “Repacholi states that he always followed the WHO rules on funding and that, “NO funds were EVER sent to me.” [His emphasis.]... As Microwave News has previously reported, Repacholi arranged for the industry money to be sent to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia, where he used to work. The funds were then transferred to the WHO... Norm Sandler, a Motorola spokesman, has stated, “This is the process for all the supporters of the WHO program.” At the time, Motorola was sending Repacholi $50,000 each year. That money is now bundled with other industry contributions and sent to Australia by the Mobile Manufacturers Forum (MMF), which gives the project $150,000 a year. “What is the difference between sending money directly to the WHO and sending it via Australia?,” Repacholi was asked. He never responded. (Microwave News November 17th 2006 [here].)

Repacholi is still “working” for the mobile phone industry. At a recent GSMA industry conference (GSMA - or GSM Association - is an association of mobile operators and related companies which supports the standardizing, deployment and promotion of the GSM mobile telephone system), Repacholi encouraged parents to get their children to use wireless devices so that these children would not be left behind in the use of this technology. (See article, “Is Michael Repacholi the World’s Best Whirling Dervish?”) Repacholi has lobbied against the strict Swiss and Italian precautionary exposure limits and, as a member of the United Kingdom’s Stewart panel on mobile phones, has argued against the recommendation that children be discouraged from using mobile phones. (Ref: Microwave News, Nov/Dec 2000, page 2.) 

In his letter, Dr. Sosa requests that legal action by the government of the United States and its Justice Department be taken regarding Michael Repacholi’s “crimes against the physical integrity of millions of citizens of the United States and citizens of a great majority of countries around the world.” The “medical fraud” committed by Repacholi – downplaying the damaging health effects of microwave radiation, particulary low-level effects and favoring standards based only on thermal effects - led the World Health Organization itself to minimize the damaging nature of microwave radiation emitted by wireless technology and “to disregard the medical criteria of research institutions of planetary prestige like Harvard University and the Karolinska Institute (which is in charge of assigning the Nobel Prize of Medicine each year). Other warnings from extremely honest worldwide institutions, physicians and organizations have been systematically and repetitively ignored.” 

This serious crime is being perpetuated by WHO.  Dr. Sosa:  “Within a frame of corruption, engineers and physicists are running key positions in the World Health Organization. Emily Perkins van Deventer, who is an electrical engineer, replaced Michael Repacholi as director of the EMF Project at the WHO. Neither one has the capacity to pontificate about the Medical Effects of radiofrequency radiation. Repacholi lacks the Academic Credentials and Medical Background in order to speak about Human Health. Michael Repacholi is not a Medical Doctor nor a Physician, and despite this, he has been allowed to guide the world in terms of the HEALTH EFFECTS of radiofrequency and electromagnetic fields.”

  1. Cell phones may carry health risks with low-power radiation. Potential hazards need independent research and a tech industry strategy for mitigation. http://alfidicapitalblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/health-risks-of-cell-phones-and.html
