–Ramola D, with reports from Melanie Vritschan and Dr. Katherine Horton/Posted 12/21/2017
Amethyst Vritschan, the newborn baby daughter of Melanie Vritschan–world-renowned human rights advocate, founder of the avant-garde human rights group ICATOR, International Coalition Against Electronic Torture and the Robotization of Living Beings, and key member of the US-European human rights coalition, the Joint Investigation Team, which investigates widespread reports of Military/Intelligence Surveillance Abuse and Non-Consensual Experimentation among civilian populations in the US and Europe–is still being held at Erasme Hopital, where she was born, after she was snatched from her mother one day after her birth on Oct 18, per a sudden 30-day separation edict handed down on Oct 19 by the Tribunal de la Jeunesse or Youth Court on the unwarranted instigation of a group of psychiatrists at Erasme Hospital.
Erasme Hospital psychiatrists, headed by Dr. Marie Delhaye and including Dr. Fredrick Milcent, Dr. Maya Szambat, and two other pedopsychiatrists, made a flash decision that Ms. Vritschan was delusional and needed psychiatric care after a high-speed 15-minute “assessment” shortly after a nurse-midwife Ms. Helene Sinon relayed to the Head Gynecologist a conversation she had had with Ms. Vritschan’s friend and colleague, Dr. Katherine Horton, an Oxford-educated particle physicist and former CERN research scientist, the night that Amethyst was born.
This conversation involved notice of a metallic implant that had been found in Ms. Vritschan’s throat and partially removed by a surgeon. Dr. Horton, who was one of the scientists who had examined and analyzed this implant in a Swiss laboratory, had mentioned the implant out of concern for Ms. Vritschan’s ability to breathe, given that part of the implant had not yet been removed, and, encountering the professed ignorance of Ms. Sinon about implants, had discussed different kinds of implants currently in use, both consensual, medical implants and non-consensual, Military/Intelligence-related, covert and illegal implants being reported today.
Apparently the very mention of implants triggered a nuclear explosion inside Erasme Hopital.
Without caring to see the physical evidence of this removed implant and her surgeon’s statement on the removal of this implant, which Ms. Vritschan tried to show her on her laptop, Dr. Delhaye proceeded to label Ms. Vritschan delusional, as if the mere mention of implants, that Ms. Vritschan’s friend and colleague had made and she had corroborated, universally signaled delusions and mental instability.
In other words, this psychiatrist—with a medical degree—failed to examine the medical report attesting to this implant, and thus, without investigating the matter, “diagnosed” the reporting patient as severely, in fact, paranoid delusional. This diagnosis led to catastrophic consequences for the Vritschan family: Melanie was remanded to the Psychiatry Ward—after further abuse masquerading as psychiatric diagnosis, and Amethyst was forcibly separated from her mother. Additionally, Melanie’s 78-year-old father, who had come from Germany to see his newly born granddaughter, was also prohibited from seeing her, and arrived to find Melanie held like a prisoner in Psychiatry.
Please Note: Microchip Implants are No Longer News
Bodily implants such as RFID implants, cochlear implants, dental implants, and pacemakers are used today in a variety of applications in the medical field and in animal tracking. Previously only used at the level of the microchip, implants today include nanotechnology. Long-known to and used non-consensually and covertly by military and Intelligence experimenters and spy/surveillance trackers, well since 1969, in fact, as per the documented testimonial of military whistleblowers such as Barrie Trower, security whistleblowers like William Pawelec, and medical researchers such as Dr. Rauni Luukanen-Kilde, these tiny monitoring implants are now used openly by medical institutions as well.
In fact, Dr. Horton notes, one branch of Erasme Hospital posted website notice of a new Diabetes-monitoring implant on the very day, Oct 19, that Amethyst was snatched in this contrived maelstrom of “concern” about a delusional “belief in implants” by another branch of Erasme Hospital.
It should be noted that non-consensually placed covert implants in anyone’s body today plausibly imply the involvement of Intelligence agencies or clandestine military experimenters. The physical scanning, identification, and removal of such implants—which human rights advocates and concerned experts are today engaging in, as reported here earlier—is a focus also of ICATOR, which has made great strides recently in legally challenging Intelligence agencies on behalf of victims.
Given this background, the question must be asked: Was the founder of ICATOR’s baby actually snatched by Erasme Hospital psychiatrists—on the orders of Belgian Intelligence–in a targeted act of retaliation for ICATOR’s whistleblowing and legal advocacy on behalf of the victims of Intelligence and military neurotechnology experimenters?
Five days after Melanie was held in Psychiatry at Erasme, a judge questioned the (mis)diagnosing Erasme Hopital psychiatrists and ruled at a convened court hearing that no mental illness could be found, no intent to harm self or others was evidenced, no medication-compliance was in question, and Melanie was free to go.
However, Erasme Hospital held on to the infant, going by the original court order decreeing mother-baby separation from a second court, the Tribunal de la Jeunesse or Youth Court, which order, it should be noted, was made immediately after Erasme Hopital psychiatrists (mis)diagnosed Melanie as delusional. The hospital continued to refuse to let Melanie or her father see the child, saying “this was a different court” and the procedure had already been set in motion; she could not leave the hospital with her baby.
Effectively thereby going by the orders they themselves—via Erasme Psychiatry–had set in motion, through the Youth Court, despite the fact that Melanie had just been judged free of mental illness.
Ironically, Erasme Hospital prides itself on preserving the rights of the child and offering superior mother-baby care. These photos, taken by Melanie, depict charts and graphics on the walls at the Neonatal Ward, claiming to honor the right of the baby to be with her parents, avoid parent-child separations, diminish stress, and facilitate the mother-child bonding. Yet in this case, it seems, none of these objectives were honored.
First Revision of Youth Court Order Permits Visiting Hours
There is, of course, more to the story. The initial court order which Dr. Marie Delhaye had provoked with her instant diagnosis, signed by Judge Serck, was amended shortly after Melanie left the hospital.
Signed by Judge J. F. Velge, the revised court order minimally permitted mother-baby visits while requiring that the Head of Neonatalogy decide the conditions associated.
This Head of Neonatology, Dr. Bart van Overmeire, initially permitted Melanie (and no other family members) to visit her baby for a sparse one hour a week, then 3 hours a week, under the supervision of an appointed psychologist. Later visiting hours were extended to six hours or so every day, with her 8-year-old son being permitted to visit for a half-hour at a time on weekends.
On November 2, Melanie visited with her own baby, Amethyst, for the first time since the removal of Amethyst from her room on October 19, for one hour. On that first visit, when Melanie questioned the child psychologist regarding why she was not being permitted to take her baby home after a court had examined the events that transpired–whereby she was falsely and inexplicably labeled mentally ill and delusional by Erasme Hopital psychiatrists—and found her NOT to be mentally ill in any way, stated, “It is more complicated than that. We are very concerned about the future of the child. We think the child needs to be protected from you.”
Currently Revised Court Order Extends Amethyst’s Stay at Erasme; Judge Mentions Institutionalization of Child
Since then, Judge Serck of the Youth Court, returning from interim leave, has issued a renewal of the original court order she had signed earlier, requiring that Amethyst be held in the Neonatology Unit of Erasme Hopital for another 30 days—bringing the total of her time period of separation from her mother and holding in Erasme to 60 days.
This period draws to an end this dawn on Winter Solstice on December 21, when a court hearing has been scheduled by the Youth Court to finally decide whether Amethyst Vritschan will be released to her mother’s care or not.
Further, the judge has conveyed in this order that this continued placement is temporary, while the Court sought “an appropriate institution in which to raise the child,” as per Ms. Vritschan’s report.
This determination was made, the order noted, after conferring with staff at the hospital, who had reportedly felt the mother was “still delusional” and represented a grave risk to her child. The order also claimed that the mother’s diagnosis by Erasme psychiatrists of grave delirium and “morbid absence of conscience” had necessitated her being “hospitalized under constraint” in Psychiatry, effectively painting the situation in terms of dire urgency for the removal of the baby from the mother.
All this, on the basis of a false and extremely hasty diagnosis based on hearsay by an Erasme Hospital psychiatrist.
Erasme Hospital Staff Try Hard To Persuade “Voluntary” Enrollment in a Psychiatric Mother-Baby Home
What is especially disturbing about the latter period when Melanie was allowed to visit her own child in the hospital, and worked hard to co-operate with hospital staff to keep to their allowed visiting times and schedules, despite feeling the trauma of separation from her newborn and the injustice of the situation—wherein a young, childless child psychologist “supervised” her time with her baby and gave this twice-over-mother baby-care instruction–is that the Erasme child psychologist and social assistant began to pressure her to voluntarily enroll in a psychiatric mother-and-baby residential clinic for a month or more.
The social assistant working with Erasme Hopital met with Melanie and the child psychologist last month and recommended a visit to a Brussels clinic-home, which Melanie eventually undertook, after having her lawyer indicate this was a visit in compliance with their request and nothing more.
Regardless, this visit was later mischaracterized by the Youth Aide in an email as indicative of admission as a patient at this clinic. Melanie reports that the psychiatrist at the clinic had said to her at the conclusion of the visit that she “had a place open for her” at the clinic, which latter was misleadingly relayed by the Youth Aide as the psychiatrist saying “her place was there” at the clinic.
Melanie reports that after her visit, she informed the social assistant, Youth Aide, and child psychologist that given that this clinic-home housed patients with drug or alcohol addiction and severe post-partum depression issues, it did not seem to be the right, conducive, and peaceful environment for her and her baby, whose place she stressed, was in the peace, comfort, and sanctity of her own home, and therefore she did not wish to go there.
At this point, both the Youth Aide and the child psychologist expressed their disapproval of this decision and tried to persuade Melanie to “voluntarily” enroll at this clinic, saying that if she did not go, the judge would take Amethyst away from her and put her in a home. Melanie did not succumb to these obvious attempts to intimidate and coerce, and stood by her decision, pointing out the judge could also see it was time to simply return Amethyst to her, and rule positively in her favor.
To this, the child psychologist replied that Erasme Hospital was planning to recommend at the Dec 21 hearing that she enroll at this clinic for a month, and that it was entirely likely the judge would require that she do so. Melanie speculated that Erasme staff might rationalize this recommendation by saying the time allotted for her observation had not sufficed, and that she needed to be evaluated by “qualified” people longer, that is, by a psychiatrist such as this one.
She also noted, in conversations with this writer privately and on podcasts, that the very fact that this clinic-home was being pushed as the only way forward by Erasme, suggested that the initial psychiatrists headed by Dr. Marie Delhaye who wrongfully cast Melanie as delusional were very much behind this initiative, and were still calling the shots behind the scenes.
It must be questioned therefore why Erasme Hospital has been trying to push this route as the only viable way forward: admitting Melanie and Amethyst into a psychiatric home is virtually a plunge back into Psychiatry; with her “voluntary” commitment and the re-characterizing of her as a “psychiatric patient,” the prevailing narrative the Erasme psychiatrists have unilaterally set into motion is seemingly vindicated, encouraging the court to see their initial diagnosis as accurate.
Is that why Erasme Hospital is so keen to push Melanie into voluntarily committing herself and her baby into this psychiatric mother-and-baby clinic-home? To save face, at this late date, after misdiagnosing her, subjecting her to traumatic interrogation and incarceration in Psychiatry post-Ceaseran for 7 days, ripping her baby from her arms, calling up the Juvenile Court and ensuring her baby is withheld from her for 60 days, keeping her father from seeing the child, keeping her son from seeing the child, and more?
Erasme Neonatal Nurses Recognize Melanie as “Super Mom”
Not all Erasme Hospital staff however are going along with this false diagnosis. Many of the neonatal nurses with whom Melanie has been in close contact over the past month have commended her for her superlative care of Amethyst, as she drives an hour each way in heavy traffic across town to reach the hospital and back everyday to spend time with her baby. Nurses have said to her they have never seen a mother who is so naturally attuned to her baby and have called her “super mom.” Melanie reports that one nurse has said, “Just keep doing what you are doing. You are a super mom. Everyone knows this here.” Nurses also indicated that they could see for themselves that she was in no way “delusional” as Dr. Delhaye had pronounced.
Falsification of Police Information Challenged
Something else of note is the fact that apparently many lies have been put forward by various parties in an attempt to further this wrongful characterization of Melanie as delusional and an incompetent mother.
Shortly after Dr. Delhaye labelled Melanie such, and she was dragged across town to Brugman Hospital in the middle of the night supposedly for an independent psychiatric assessment which turned out to be both a traumatic interrogation and far from independent (this doctor’s recommendation that she was fine and needed to be returned to the Maternity Ward was overridden by a phone call after which he changed his assessment and said, “It has been decided. You are going to Psychiatry,”) police opened an investigation of Melanie’s background. In the process, they contacted and spoke to her ex-partner, and noted in their files that he had barely known her and had said she was “fragile.”
Her ex-partner has since corrected this statement in writing for the judge at tomorrow’s hearing, noting that he has known Melanie for more than 20 years, shared an 8-year-old child with her, and was never likely to have called her “fragile”!
Police records have also noted that conversation with neighbors suggest that a man, a mysterious “lawyer friend” has been visiting her apartment, an obvious attempt to implicate a lover in this scenario; neighbors have since denied they were contacted or offered any such information. Melanie notes this is a complete fabrication,an attempt to falsify information surrounding the intended characterization of her as delusional or an irresponsible mother involved in affairs rather than child-care. To put it bluntly, notes Melanie, “police made this up.”
There is much more to this story that deserves close examination, to be accorded focus in succeeding coverage. For now, it is to be hoped that the judge at the Juvenile Court this December 21 understands clearly the grave error that has been made here, the tremendous injustice that has occurred in the grievous separation of baby Amethyst from her family, and act immediately to return this already-traumatized infant to her mother—just in time for Christmas, a gift the entire family will surely appreciate.
Thank you for your work, you are very brave and honest, may God keep you, I pray for you with all my heart.
This is outrageous! Where are her family, friends, civil rights attorneys child advocacy groups, and the TI community? This can’t happen unless one stands alone – Melanie, thank you for your work and congratulations on your baby. Pray the judge will do what’s right and you’ll be united with your daughter today.
