Army resumes inquiry into alleged abuses
By LESLIE ERINGAARD
The Army has reopened an investigation into
charges that U.S. special agents in South Korea
regularly abused drugs and alcohol, got into fistfights,
and engaged in sexual misconduct with South Korean
Army investigators yesterday interviewed former
Special Agent Joseph Ditzhazy at the Eloy, Ariz.
police department. Ditzhazy has charged
counterintelligence agents in South Korea with
widespread abuses which he said could jeopardize
national security by leaving agents open to blackmail.
DITZHAZY, who now works for the Corrections
Department of the state of Arizona, said that he was
alternately ignored and harassed when he tried to take
his complaints up the chain of command in South
Ditzhazy also alleged that Lt. Col. Charles
Narburgh, head of the University of Michigan's ROTC

Army is willing to go to whatever
lengths it takes to investigate alleged
-Lt. Col. Charles Narburgh, head of
program, attempted to blacklist Ditzhazy from security
positions in the CIA, the FBI, and the Secret Service
upon his return to the United States with a Hardship
Discharge in May.
Narburgh recently completed a two-year post as head
of the 524th Military Intelligence Battalion in South
THE ARMY investigation was reopened after
Ditzhazy put out several press releases and wrote to key
members of the Senate Select Intelligence and Armed
Services. He also sent detailed information to Vice
President Bush and Secretary of Defense Caspar
"I think they (personnel in the Army's Intelligence
and Security Command) are concerned about having to
do this investigation," Ditzhazy said. "I think they
hoped it would just go away."
Narburgh said yesterday that the expanded
investigation does not imply that any of Ditzhazy's
charges are valid. "I think it just goes to show that the
Army is willing to go to whatever lengths it takes to
investigate alleged injustices," he said. "I think one of
the reasons that he is being interviewed formally is to
bring to a conclusion his continuing allegations."
"FEW OF his allegations have any substance,"
Narburgh continued. "(The media) is feeding his ego by
even giving him the press space."
Starting at 9:30 a.m. yesterday, Ditzhazy was
questioned at length by investigators for the Army's
Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM).
During the sworn tape testimony, Ditzhazy
furnished investigators with a list of 12 sources who
were not contacted in the original Army investigation,
which was completed in September. Ditzhazy said he
did not include them on his source list when he filed
his complaint in order to protect the sources who were
still in Korea at the time.
Ditzhazy said he planned to furnish the sources
when investigators came to him for questioning, which.
they did not do before releasing a final assessment in
September. The analysis concluded that there was no
evidence of widespread abuse by U.S. special forces in.
Ditzhazy is considering suing the Army for
$400,000 to compensate for personal suffering and his
lost military career. He said he also hopes to see a new
set of standards for special agents, and a "streamlining".
of the process of reporting agent abuses.
Delegates say Juigalpa needs supplies
By KERY MURAKAMI
Members of Ann Arbor's
17-person delegation to Nicaragua
yesterday said a city task force could
help alleviate shortages in medical
and school supplies in Ann Arbor's

expected to begin a bucket drive
next weekend to raise money for

books for Juigalpan schools.
THE TASK force, as well as
the delegation, was set up as part of
a city resolution passed in 1985,
which also authorized a letter to the
U.S government protesting its
policies in Central America. The
delegates Monday night blasted U.S

calling it a "morally bankrupt

delegates' comments and sending
aid to Nicaragua.
MANY OF the delegates were
health or education experts, and one
priority of the trip was to find areas
where Ann Arbor could offer
assistance. For example,James
Eckroad, a local health and
sanitation analyst, toured Juigalpa's
water and sanitation facilities.
According to Eckroad, Juigalpa
has no sewage system, forcing
Juigalpans to use either outhouses
or septic tanks. In addition, he
said, the city has an insufficent and
"questionable" supply of drinking
Eckroad said Ann Arbor could
help build a separate water system
for Juigalpa's hospital. The
hospital, he said, accounts for 12
percent of the city's water
consumption. Officials of Hague,
Juigalpa's sister city in the
Netherlands, have pledged $80,000
and technical help in upgrading the
city's water supply. Eckroad didn't
know how much building a water
system for the hospital would cost.
