A fascinating article was just published in the Norwegian press. A woman had her 4 kids confiscated and then sentenced to jail for “violence” against the children. What was the offense? Giving the children pats on their bottom, grabbing them by the arm and embracing their body and neck to arouse their attention.
As a result the kids were taken and the mother sentenced to jail time.
Fast forward to present. The criminal case was appealed and the conviction was reversed due to lack of evidence against the mother!
HOW WAS THIS MOTHER CONVICTED AND SENT TO PRISON????
This is a key question because the same method was used against the Bodnariu family!
It turns out that the appeals judge noticed serious issues with how the children were interviewed! The new judge realized that the answers the kids were giving under pressure were contradictory and the children were not sure about what they experienced.
WHY WERE THE CHILDREN’S ANSWERS CONTRADICTORY AND UNCLEAR?
Because psychologists used leading questions when they interviewed them. Leading questions prompt or encourage the desired answer. You can make a child say almost anything using leading questions. And the appeals court recognized this issue.
Delight in Truth is bringing this to light because we know that the Bodnariu children were bombarded with leading questions. One of the girls said the following during an interview:
“I am tired, I do not know what else to make up”
This is the kind of forced testimony that Barnevernet uses to remove children from good and loving homes. I am glad to see that at least some elements of the system recognize the problem. This recognition may have to do with the international protests against the system and with serious cases of abuse and even death within the system.
If the Bodnariu children are not returned home and Barnevernet not reformed, April 16th, 2016 the international D-Day of world-wide protest will be just the beginning of tremendous exposure and shame for Norway.
Norwegian government, is this how you want your country to be seen by the whole world?
