The first part of the article about the careless way Youth Care organization ‘Safe Home’ in which conducts itself calls into question if they contribute to social cohesion and safety in this way. Why can a Confidence doctor with confirmation bias do a PhD? Why does this organization train other professionals to suspect child abuse in a long list of illnesses and to paint nearly all Dutch parents black?
The BVIKZ, the Interest Group for Intensive Child Care, is doing an ongoing investigation into false claims of child neglect and abuse by the Dutch Child Protection Services. It has now compiled and researched 168 individual cases. Over thirty percent of these cases are about children with Lyme disease.
Innatoss Laboratories has received nearly two million euro subsidy from the European Union to develop a better test for Lyme diagnostics together with 3 European partners. According to its director Anja Garritsen, anybody can become a new Lyme patient tomorrow. The risk of being infected by a tick bite is increasing and with the current state of technology and knowledge, odds are that the acute infection will not be found and will thus become chronic. We went to interview miss Garritsen.
Due to an increase of attempts by the Dutch Child Protective Services to take the custody of children with Lyme away from their parents, top lawyer Richard Korver was willing to be interviewed on this complex subject. He is helping several Dutch parents to fight the accusations of 'child abuse' and 'Munchhausen by Proxy'.
Parents with ill children seem to have regular trouble with the Dutch Child Protective Services. Over the last month there has been a lot of media coverage on this subject. Now the BVIKZ, the Dutch interest group for parents with chronically ill children, is collecting cases to investigate how often this happens. They specifically look into Lyme and the hidden misery of caring parents, who are accused of 'child abuse' or 'Munchhausen by Proxy'.
