In Denmark – Karina removed from her home against her will.

On 12th February 2013, without warning, local police and officials removed a sick ME patient, Karina Hansen, from her home in Holstebro. Both Karina and her mother who was also present, opposed the removal in the strongest  possible way - yet still Karina was transferred to Hammel Neuroscience Center.

Karina’s mother and relatives have been prohibited from contacting her for the next 14 days. They are now kept informed by a daily phone call from a physician at the centre who does not even know about the disease, but says that the centre is working with the Research Clinic for Functional Disorders and their understanding of ME.  The case is now handled by Karina’s lawyer.

The Danish  ME Association is following further developments and will keep members informed here http://www.me-foreningen.dk/  https://www.facebook.com/meforeningen.dk  The original statement is to be found there in Danish. I apologise for inaccuracies in translation – Please correct me…
