                                            3. The General Physician's Statement

         In 1994 my current family doctor informed me, at his own initiative, that he believed that I had been the victim of a capital mistake. The expression "capital" did not refer to the price of the treatment, although it must have run into millions. Shortly thereafter, at my request, he confirmed his statement in writing. Below is his statement, with only my name replaced by the pseudonym.

Dear Mr. G. Marchand,

               Partly at your request, and in view of the experience I have gained in the years that you were a client in my practice, I declare that the psychiatric diagnosis, treatment, and medicine which you received in 1970 was based on an incorrect diagnosis (namely, a schizophrenic psychosis). Also in retrospect it must be acknowledged that this treatment has harmed you.

                 Yours truly,                                                    …………….(signature

         In 1992 a local psychiatrist, after conducting an examination for a second opinion, also confirmed that there is no doubt that I do not have schizophrenia. Much earlier, already in 1975, my family doctor at that time mentioned that the authoritarian physician, who had once been a military doctor, and who was responsible for statement which led to the court order, would surely have regretted it. In 1976 a different physician in the same practice called my involuntary treatment abuse of power, and informed me that trilafon treatments are no longer permitted. According to inside information, the psychiatric hospital which employed P. had once demoted him.Dear Mr. G. Marchand,
