Delight in Truth is shocked to discover that leading questions form the basis of CPS interviews with children in Norway.
Imagine the following scenario: a 6-year-old girl is kept for 4 hours in an interrogation-style room with only a psychologist and a video camera. The psychologist wants to extract a confession from the girl to the effect that her stepfather abused her sexually. The girl denies it 22 times and she is even surprised at some of the questions.
Then the shocker: the psychologist tells her she will be able to leave the room only after incriminating the stepfather.
“You have to say it, you see, or else we will never be finished.”
After much hesitation the girl agrees to the psychologist’s version of events, but never actually repeats those events herself. This graphic video exists on Ray the Man YouTube channel.
As a result of this forced and false confession, the girl was removed from her home and fostered with various parents. The 6-year-old girl is now age 19 and has seen the video with her deposition from 13 years ago. Imagine seeing yourself as a little child being manipulated by an adult in a position of authority to agree to something that never happened.
The young woman watched in amazement and confirmed that words were put in her mouth. She also explained that it was so unpleasant being in that room, that she resigned to saying anything to escape the situation.
This is what Barnevernet does. This is how they interview children. We are not surprised that one of the Bodnariu girls said: “I do not know what else to make up” during her CPS deposition. The CPS then turns around and uses data from these coerced confessions against the parents… If the children only knew the real reason these leading questions are asked of them!
I am writing these articles in the hope they will be read by Norwegians. We must get this message inside Norway because these methods of interviewing children are not acceptable. They constitute parental and family rights violations.
Barnevernet methods violate human rights.
