One flew over the cuckoo’s nest - 2005

Posted 10 Oct 2016 at 09:40 AM by St Jimmy

If I tell people, I’ve been tortured in 2005 for half a year in a psychiatric hospital; they don’t believe me, because it’s not in the newspapers and these types of things don’t happen in a country like the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
I have lodged an official complaint against the 4 state psychiatrists of Mentrum that were responsible for this abuse; the judges in first instance and appeal decided these psychiatrists acted according to the medical regulation in the Netherlands. My most important conclusion is that I can never function at my old level again because of being poisoned with psychiatric drugs.
The decisions of the CTG of May 26, 2016 have been published, but conceal important facts, while components of my complaint were not even judged; this is the most interesting one of the four (in Dutch): [url]http://tuchtrecht.overheid.nl/nieuw/gezondheidszorg/uitspraak/2016/ECLI_NL_TGZCTG_2016_198[/url]
This story has nothing to do with health care but is more a translation of my official complaint (thus a legal description). Don’t be surprised to find out that “mental health care” is nothing else than torturing of political prisoners.
The only way I could escape from the clutches of psychiatry was by not resisting the torture. This in the short term made the effects worse, but in the long term I escaped, although they have tried repeatedly to force me into coerced treatment again.

In the summer of 2003 ABN AMRO bank (my employer) started a reorganisation to get rid of employees as cheap as possible (formally the law in the Netherlands protects the personnel), because they wanted to outsource the activities to TCS in India (component of Tata Group). On September 1, 2005 (when the reorganisation had already been finished) the outsourcing was made public: [url]http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4204174.stm[/url]
In September 2003 I had to work in 6 ICT-projects in 3 different functions simultaneously, which gave me mental health problems. In December 2003 “colleagues” brought me toxic drinks. They harassed me repeatedly, for example: stealing my wallet, middle fingers, throwing a cup of coffee over my clothes, yelling, intimidations, calling me names, a reprimand, etc. As from the beginning of February 2004 the office building was already deserted. On March 1 I refused to go to work and was fired.
In 2004 the government repeatedly broke into my house while I was out (I have proof that both Mentrum and ABN AMRO entered my house). From my tap came poisoned water and in supermarkets they sold me toxic drinks, as a result of which I had to spit terribly for literally hundreds of times a day.
From May 2004 on Mentrum made monthly house visits. If they rang my doorbell, I opened the window on the third floor and shouted that I didn´t want to speak to them. On December 22, 2004 psychiatrist Jules Tielens discussed with ABN AMRO how I could be locked up ASAP. On December 27 Tielens established (without personally examining me) that I am dangerous as a result of the mental disorders: schizophrenia, syndrome of Asperger and psychotic; with the dangers: social destruction and setting my apartment on fire.
On January 27, 2005 I was sentenced to forced psychiatric treatment for 3 months (I wasn’t even informed of the trial). The attorney assigned to me (Mr. J.D. van der Heijden) pleaded that I must be treated, because he didn´t speak me. That evening the police broke down my door, sprayed pepper spray in my eyes, before locking me up.

From January 27 till February 24, 2005 I was kept in isolation. Three times a complete team of some 15 cops of the riot squad in full battle gear was used against me, and injected me with drugs. In the isolation cell there was no toilet or running water. I protested against this treatment by stopping to talk and a hunger strike (I lost some 60 pounds of weight) and remained motionless on a mattress most of the day. From the time I was locked up the spitting (because of poisoned drinks) abruptly stopped.
On March 10 the psychiatrist and Doctor-director (Geneesheer-Directeur) asked for authorisation for coerced antipsychotics. On March 17 I lodged a complaint with the help of the “PVP” concerning isolating me and forced antipsychotics, this was the last time I ever saw the PVP (the PVP helps psychiatric patients to file complaints). On March 23 they injected me with antipsychotics (Zyprexa), with the effects sleepy, no energy and insomnia.
On April 4 my complaint was treated orally by the complaint committee. Psychiatrist Bijpost told that the antipsychotics worked really well and I had been kept in isolation because I appeared to be “charged”. The complaint committee judged that the isolation had been unnecessarily long (complaint component founded), but that although coercion antipsychotics is dubious at best, this complaint component cannot be granted (although at the time no diagnosis had been established). Also the complaint committee observed Mentrum had falsely written in my medical file that I was isolated until February 22 (instead of February 24). Because I had been injected with long working depot medication there was no need to decide yet if I should be coerced to antipsychotics again. On April 4 and 21 they injected me again. These facts have been completely ignored by the RTG and CTG. During April Bijpost was replaced with psychiatrist Derks.
As from mid-March I acted just as “normal” as the average person walking the street, but on March 22 a new medical declaration was established (with diagnosis schizophrenia) to prolong the forced psychiatric treatment (In April the complaint committee had established that still no diagnosis had been established).

It was terrible to have absolutely nothing to do, there were some 5 hours of activities all week. On April 8 for the first time I was allowed outside the hospital (for a maximum half an hour a day) and from April 19 I could take a walk outside whenever I wanted (I just needed to ask permission).
On April 27 the legal authorisation to keep me locked up was finished. When I rang attorney Van der Heijden, he said he would do nothing for me.
At the beginning of May I offered to take the antipsychotics “voluntarily” (so I could stop when I would return to my apartment). I was pressured to change to Risperdal (Risperidon, 4 mg daily). This had even more terrible effects: fever, Parkinson, no energy, impotence, incontinence, sleepy, lack of control over bodily movements, blurred eyesight, etc. For Parkinson I got Akineton (Biperiden), which made me demented.
On May 18 was the court day at the higher Court (Gerechtshof) concerning the new legal authorisation for forced psychiatric treatment. The head of the psychiatric hospital (Sanders) and the doctor that “treated” me argued that I had to be treated, because I would otherwise escape from the mental health care. My attorney argued I must be locked up, because I suffer from a mental disorder, because I believe the treatment is a violation of my constitutional rights. The judge emphasised I had to be locked up, because normal people do not stop working. The Court sentenced me on May 20 to another year of forced treatment. The higher court wasn’t authorised to pass judgement in first instance, which was only the lower court (Kantonrechter).
Until July 17, 2005 by which time I suffered from serious mental and physical problems because of the psychiatric drugs; on returning to my apartment I immediately stopped taking the antipsychotics. It took until April 2006 before I could function at an adequate level again. While I could live independently again, I had to participate in the daily treatment program on another location, with a lot of talk groups where they said that good people: don’t cause trouble, listen to the psychiatrist and take their medicine.
On October 12 and 14, 2005 I was finally examined by an “independent” psychiatrist. The test consisted of some 50 multiple choice questions and some 10 drawings that I had to describe. They concluded conclusively that there were no signs of schizophrenia or autism. Mentrum took up to November 11 to fantasise that because I’m able to disguise my mental disease in a subtle manner, I could still be narcistic so it's especially important to keep me on the antipsychotics for a long time. As from June 6, 2006 I had a normal job in ICT again (university level). Only then the new psychiatrist gave me permission to taper off Risperdal (I had already stopped for 10 ½ months).

On August 5, 2014 I filed an official complaint against the 4 psychiatrists responsible for torturing me from February till June 2005. In first instance the RTG of Amsterdam ruled that the complaints were unfounded and this was reaffirmed in appeal by the CTG of The Hague. Both the RTG and CTG have ignored important facts and ignored most of the 14 components of the complaint.
My complaint is mostly based on violations of the Wet BOPZ (the law in the Netherlands for forced psychiatric treatment).
[I][B]Part 1[/B] – not informing me about my rights[/I]: even according to the Dutch law (political) prisoners have rights, the psychiatrists should have informed me about my rights.
[I][B]Part 2[/B] – lies in medical file[/I]: They lied that I was separated up to February 22, 2005 (instead of: February 24).
[I][B]Part 3[/B] – improper treatment complaint / not suspending coerced medication[/I]: They never sent me the decision of April 4 on my complaint. After lodging the complaint on March 17 coerced medication should have been suspended, instead I was injected on March 23.
[I][B]Part 4[/B] – no access to PVP[/I]: After lodging my complaint I never saw the PVP again.
[I][B]Part 5[/B] – unlawfully keeping me isolated / limiting freedom to move[/I]: According to the Wet BOPZ I have the right to move freely in- and outside the psychiatric hospital, whereas I was only allowed this freedom from April 19 on. There was no reason to isolate me. They even assaulted me 3 times with a complete team of the riot squad.
[I][B]Part 6[/B] – no treatment plan[/I]: They never even discussed the treatment or showed me a treatment plan. This is a criminal offence.
[I][B]Part 7[/B] – medical statement with lies[/I]: By lying I was schizophrenic; the psychiatrists misled the court in order to keep torturing me. Several psychiatrists have confirmed that I never was schizophrenic. This evidence has been completely ignored by the courts.
[I][B]Part 8[/B] – medical statement by a not independent psychiatrist[/I]: A medical declaration could only have been established by an independent psychiatrist.
[I][B]Part 9[/B] – locked up without legal basis during 24 days[/I]: On April 27 the legal authorisation for 3 months forced psychiatric treatment had expired and just on May 20 this was extended for another year. I was locked up without legal grounds from April 27 up to May 20 (24 days). Then the court that ruled was the Higher court (Gerechtshof), that wasn’t authorised to rule in first instance. Locking me up without legal grounds is a criminal offence.
[I][B]Part 10[/B] – no communication[/I]: The psychiatrists had the duty to inform me. The communication was extremely bad.
[I][B]Part 11[/B] – poisoning with drugs[/I]: The known “side” effects of Risperdal and Zyprexa prove that the treatment was not aimed at diminishing the danger of social destruction. These drugs are not intended for someone who suffers from burnout, thus administering these drugs was torture. The effects of Risperdal were even worse (than Zyprexa), thus should have been immediately stopped.
[I][B]Part 12, 13[/B] – crimes against humanity / torturing; Making me crazy[/I]: The period in the isolation cell from January 27 up to February 24 is torture. This isolation cell did not even meet the minimum legal requirements: no toilet or a curtain to shield me from the cameras. Poisoning with drugs with only negative effects (among which a shorter life expectancy), is torture. Locking me up without legal grounds from April 27 up to May 20 is a crime against humanity.
[I][B]Part 14[/B] – violating medical responsibility[/I]: There was no treatment whatsoever. There must at least be the possibility to do some activities, or the psychiatric victims become crazy from boredom.
Complaint components 2, 3, 4, 11, 12, 13 and 14 have still not been assessed. All of the following articles of the Wet BOPZ were violated: 5, 14a, 17, 37, 38, 38a, 38b, 38c, 40, 40a, 41, 48 and 59.

Just after lodging my complaint, I received the report of November 11, 2005 (that I’m not schizophrenic or autistic), I submitted these on October 1, 2014; on October 2 this was refused, on October 7 I submitted the documents again and petitioned to replace the prejudiced court (wrakingsverzoek), both were rejected. On December 8 I submitted the report for the 4th time; only on December 23 the receipt was confirmed (this important evidence is missing from the verdict).
The psychiatrists should have defended themselves within 4 weeks, but only answered after some 6 weeks (one of the psychiatrists even dated his “verweer” earlier to hide this).
Only on August 25, 2015 the judgement of the RTG (dated July 1) on my complaint was sent. This should’ve been sent within 1 week in July (art. 72 Wet BIG). The RTG did not only conceal important facts, but even adapted the description of my complaint and didn´t assess several complaint components. On October 2 I lodged an appeal with the CTG.
On March 22, 2016 was the trial date at the CTG. Only On May 26 the CTG ruled against my appeal, which should have been within 2 months (art. 83 Wet BIG). The CTG also concealed important facts and did not assess all complaint components. The only part of the complaint the CTG pronounced judgement on was me being locked up without legal grounds, for which it simply invented that I was locked up with my consent (this was not even claimed by the psychiatrists). From art. 48 Wet BOPZ it appears that patients are only locked up voluntarily if they express their willingness explicitly (which I never did).
Mentrum hasn´t sent my medical file still, without it the RTG could not investigate the complaint properly (art. 66 Wet BIG). According to the “reglement” the psychiatrists should have send my medical file to make it possible to rule on the complaint (which they have still refused).
Mentrum repeatedly burgled my house, to steal and replace evidence.
From November 2010 on my name was published several times about me being locked up long-term in a psychiatric hospital for a grave mental disorder. Because of this I cannot even get a decent job anymore.

On August 25, within 3 months, I petitioned to the Supreme Court ([I]Procureur-Generaal van de Hoge Raad[/I]) to reassess the complaint against 3 of the 4 psychiatrists (Hans Sanders, Yan Bijpost and Ans Derks).
