Baby Amethyst Vritschan Still Being Held in Erasme Hospital, Brussels: Urgent International Call to Action

Ramola D/Posted 11/4/2017

Please Share Widely on Social Media and All Media

Please take action immediately to write to, email, call Erasme Hospital Neonatal Services and the Brussels Youth Tribunal/Tribunal de la Jeunesse judge to return newborn Baby Amethyst to her mother Melanie Vritschan.

Please also alert embassies, governments, human rights advocates, media to the gravity of this situation. Melanie and Amethyst Vritschan are German citizens, who have been criminally mis-treated by Belgian hospital and court authorities at L’Hopital Erasme and the Youth Tribunal Court.

Please alert media and populations in both Germany and Belgium. Germans and Belgians could especially make a difference by demanding of their governments and embassies that this situation be resolved immediately by returning this newborn baby to the care and protection of her mother.

Criminal Actions by Hospital and Juvenile Court

Briefly: Baby Amethyst was “confiscated” by Erasme Hospital child psychiatrists Oct 19 under the false pretext of her mother being suddenly found to be delusional, in what seems to be transparently criminal retaliation for Ms. Vritschan’s successful whistleblowing and human rights work via her human rights agency ICATOR in helping victims of covert implantation obtain scientific evidence for use in a European class-action lawsuit.

The full story of Ms. Vritschan’s ill-treatment at L’Hopital Erasme may be found in the press releases, articles, and podcasts linked below.

Current Situation with Amethyst and Melanie: Sparse Visits Authorized by Youth Court/Neonatal Department

Currently, the Youth Tribunal court which issued the 30-day separation order to keep mother and baby apart for 30 days signed by Judge Serck, has issued a revised order, signed by Judge J. F. Velge, to permit Melanie to visit her baby. But these visits, he stipulated, were to be organized with the Neonatal Services at Erasme Hospital. Melanie reports that the revised order “says that the physical or psychological integrity of Amethyst is still exposed to grave danger and that is why they order her maintained in the Neonatal unit of the hospital.”

Given this advisory, the Head of Neonatal Services at Erasme Hospital, Professor Bart van Overmeire has decreed that Melanie—and Melanie alone, without family or friends-may see Amethyst for a sparse 3 hours a week, under the supervision of an appointed psychologist.

Melanie reports that she visited yesterday, November 2, with her own baby, Amethyst, for the first time since the removal of Amethyst from her room on October 19, for one hour. In response to her asking why she was not permitted to take her baby home now, after a court convened on Oct 25 had examined earlier events that had transpired at Erasme just after the birth of Amethyst (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, the appointed psychologist supervising this visit with Amethyst, as per the Erasme Hopital Neonatal Department Head’s orders stated, “It is more complicated than that. We are very concerned about you and concerned for the future of the child. We think the child needs to be protected from you.”

In a second visit today, where the accompanying picture was taken, the psychologist indicated the visits were being limited to the meager 3 hours a week “in the interest of the child.” The reason given was: “She will have to re-adjust to seeing you. She will need to get used to you again.” Melanie was also told that if the next visit also went well, the hospital would consider expanding her visits.

Whether this means the hospital is gearing up to release the baby to Melanie very soon is unclear. Concerningly, reports Melanie, the written order from Judge Velge still considers her the mother, to be “dangerous.”

Melanie Vritschan Should Be Celebrated, Not Treated as Mentally Ill and Dangerous By This Youth Court and the Erasme Neonatal Department

It should be known that Melanie Vritschan, as key member of the human rights group, the Joint Investigation Team, of which this writer is a part, and founder and mover of ICATOR, is an outstanding human rights advocate who is performing a great service to humanity by standing up for and assisting victims of organized crime in Europe. She is performing charitable service, taking effective action for her community in Belgium in a highly responsible, competent, mentally astute, indeed highly intelligent, thoughtful, and humanitarian way. She is the mother also of an 8-year-old son, and by all reports has a close, caring, and loving relationship with him. She is loved, admired, warmly respected, and supported by her close friends and colleagues, including by all members of the Joint Investigation Team, as well as by all those who have come to know of her work in media and human rights.

We know that it is ludicrous that Melanie Vritschan, being the competent leader and caring mother that she is, could ever be characterized as mentally ill, delusional, removed from reality, a danger to herself or to others, or someone that her own baby daughter would need to be protected from.

Psychiatrists, psychologists, gynecologists, and neonatologists working for Erasme Hospital and the Youth Tribunal should understand that Melanie Vritschan is a well-known and highly effective human rights advocate working on a legitimate and important human rights matter – and cannot be characterized as “Mentally Ill/Paranoid/Delusional” by reason of her vitally important human rights and charitable work.

Intentionally characterizing and stigmatizing a human rights activist engaged in addressing 21st-century crime as mentally ill and dangerous—by questioning the reality of this crime, which the Joint Investigation Team can attest to, with scientific evidence—is in itself criminal, libelous, and legally actionable.

This “Child-Protection” Juvenile Court is Essentially Preventing Critical Early-Days Mother-Baby Bonding

We who are concerned supporters of Melanie Vritschan see this as a criminal outrage–and a transparent vendetta and act of retaliation by criminals in power within the Belgian judicial and juvenile-court-and-psychiatry system who have a stake in obstructing the humanitarian work for justice and community that Melanie Vritschan is engaged in.

We deplore this action in the strongest possible terms and call urgently for all international supporters and readers moved by this travesty to step forward and speak and advocate for this newborn child Amethyst and her responsible and caring mother who is well known in the world human rights community, in order to effect an immediate mother-baby reunion and permit the critical, early-days bonding of mother and child to take place.

Child-Protection Systems Worldwide, and Brussels Are Linked to Pedophilia, Child-Trafficking

An added concern which must be mentioned is that family court and child -protection juvenile court systems in the USA and Europe have been found to have close ties with pedophile and child-trafficking rings. Brussels, Belgium has been repeatedly exposed as being at the center of child-trafficking and child-exploitation. In this atmosphere, it becomes doubly critical that we act immediately to rescue Amethyst Vritschan. Please act now!

4. Please donate to the legal fund if you can.

Please express your opinions politely but firmly. An incredible miscarriage of justice has occurred here, and officials holding the keys to this wrongful incarceration and separation of a newborn from her perfectly competent and loving mother must be made aware that concerned humanity around the world needs them to let this baby go back to her mother, or risk continued international uproar.

We are grateful for all participation in this campaign to rescue Amethyst and thank you for taking action.
