Karina Hansen: Diagnosed Severe ME in 2008 was forcibly removed from her home, February of 2013, taken to the Hammel Neurocenter in Denmark under the orders of Professor Per Fink for mandatory treatment as a psychiatric patient.
Despite the efforts of Karina’s family, friends, The International ME community, and legal team, Karina still remains a psychiatric patient at the Hammel Neuro Center via the orders of Psychiatrists Nils Balle Christensen and Professor Per Fink.
Nils Balle Christensen and Professor Per Fink do not recognize the medical diagnosis of Myalgic Encephalomyalitis as medical diagnosis but as a “Functional Somatic Disorder.”

Many of you will already be aware of the case of Karina Hansen. However, for those of you who are unfamiliar with her situation, this is a short re-cap of the facts as far as we know:

Karina, now aged 25, is a citizen of Denmark, a member state of the European Union. She was diagnosed in 2008 with a severe case of the illness Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). Her family cared for her at home until February 2013 when state intervention caused her to be forcibly removed to the Hammel Neurocenter for mandatory treatment as a de facto psychiatric patient. Despite the efforts of her family, friends and the international ME/CFS patient community to secure her release and return home, she has remained there ever since. The British charity Invest in ME has offered advice and assistance to the Danish authorities but has, so far, been ignored.
