Police investigating after professor’s computer goes missing

University of Washington police are investigating after an apparent break-in at the office of a professor who recently sued the CIA.

Angelina Godoy, director of the university’s Center for Human Rights, reported early this week that her desktop computer and a hard drive had been taken from her on-campus office. The burglary came shortly after Godoy and her center sued the CIA for records related to human rights violations in El Salvador.

“While we have backups of this information, what worries us most is not what we have lost but what someone else may have gained,” a spokesperson for the center said Wednesday in a statement. “The files include sensitive details of personal testimonies and pending investigations.”

Godoy contacted UW police on Monday after discovering her computer was missing from her Smith Hall office. UW Police Department Maj. Steve Rittereiser said the burglary is believed to have occurred sometime between Oct. 14 and Oct. 18.

Rittereiser said investigators found no evidence of forced entry. Godoy’s office appeared to have been the only office burgled around the same time.

1. The shadow government doesn't mess around.

They stole information this time. They're fully capable of killing someone next time, and they'll get away with it too. It's enough to make any decent person sick, angry, and scared all at once. Maybe one day we'll be able to do something about this shit, but I don't hold out a lot of hope now.

2. Very reminiscent of the Frank LaRue case (UN Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression) in 2013.

Several computers and documents belonging to LaRue were stolen from his office in Guatemala City on July 31, 2013, shortly after he declared his support for Snowden in his capacity as a UN official; the case has never been solved.
