                      SCRUTINY OF CI INFORMATION

INTRODUCTION:
 
     The scrutiny process and CI interrogation allows us to identify and
explore the persons/targets of interest to CI. This process allows us to
detect these persons or targets, it helps us in the imposition of the same in
an effective manner.

GENERAL FACTS:

     A.    DETERMINE THE PURPOSE OF THE SCRUTINY AND CI INTERROGATION:

     1. The CI scrutiny operations, submit, in a systematic way, the
civilians in the combat area to a series of
questioning/interviews/interrogations with the purpose of:

     a.    Find and segregate suspicious persons.

     b.    Identify persons of interest to the CI. (See Example #1).

NOTE:  THE CI SCRUTINY OPERATIONS ARE CARRIED OUT TO INTERCEPT ENEMY
INTELLIGENCE AGENTS, SABOTAGE AGAINST, INSURRECTION TRYING TO INFILTRATE OUR
AREA OF OPERATIONS.

     c.    Obtain information of immediate value to the intelligence.

     d.    Obtain information that normally will not be available to the
intelligence units.

     2.    The CI interrogation operations are carried out to obtain the
maximum amount of information about the enemy's intelligence operations in the
least possible time.

     B. Determine the types of scrutiny operations necessary to satisfy
search requirements and CI operations.

LN324-91 1. You must establish operations with a central scrutiny focus normally in the area of collection of war prisoners. This central scrutiny point: a. Has as purpose to receive, segregate, investigate and classify war prisoners, border crossers, refugees, etc. b. Receive persons captured by combat troops, support and logistics within the operations area. 2. Fixed checking points, are permanently occupied by combat troops or military police with the support of interrogation agents or CI personnel, in the entrance to towns, crossing of rivers, and in other similarly strategic areas. 3. Mobile checking points, (in vehicle, or on foot) are used as a mobile system for choosing persons of interest at random. This point must be located in various places and should not be fixed in the same place for longer than a day. 4. Wall in and search operations are used to segregate the town, area or valley, investigate the inhabitants and search residences and public areas. D. Determine the personnel requirements: The normal investigation equipment are Military Police, combat troops, civilian affairs personnel, interrogation agents and CI agents. E. Determine the specific method of identifying persons of interest to CI: 1. Carry out initials interrogations of chosen civilian and military personnel. 2. Use the black, grey and white lists. 3. Use an informant/source who is infiltrated in prison cells or detention centers/war prisoners. 4. Place recording or sound equipment in the detention areas of refuges or war prisoners. 5. Distribute a list of CI indicators of interest among the military police, interrogation agents, civilian affairs personnel and any other personnel involved in investigations. (SEE EXAMPLE #2). 198
