13. in august last year, gave a touched Mette Frederiksen, an official apology to the Godhavnsdrengene and other institutionalised, which was placed until 1976, and who were exposed to neglect and abuse.
One of the recipients of the apology, which was given under great media attention at Marienborg, was Bitten Vivi Jensen, who was himself placed in orphanages as a-year-old.
She was actually glad for the apology, but then she heard this year's new year's speech from the prime minister, where she spoke for more tvangsfjernelser with the words:
'More vulnerable children to have a new home. Earlier than today. And the conditions of placed children needs to be much more stable. The most important thing. It is quite essential for a small child. It is to grow up with a sense of security, love and stability. Therefore, more vulnerable children also available for adoption. So they get a real new start.'
The talk did the Bitten Vivi Jensen deeply shaken, and now she wants no longer to be the recipient of the prime minister's official apology. Therefore, she has shortly after the new year announced in a Facebook-posting, where she has tagged the prime minister, that she now rejects apology:
'Dear Mette Frederiksen. Receive your own Godhavns-excuse the return given to me at Marienborg august 2019.'
I have, because Mette Frederiksen's plan puts up more of it, which doesn't work. The system is not geared to all the tvangsfjernelser, and the supervision is not working. The area is full of mistakes, and that there is a human tragedy. In my eyes, Mette Frederiksen by repeating the same mistake, which she apologized for, saying the Bitten Vivi Jensen to Ekstra Bladet.
the Bitten Vivi Jensen regard among other things to figures from Ankestyrelsen, which shows that every other parent who has complained that their child had been tvangsfjernet acute from home since 2016, has been the decision repealed.
- There must of course be no children in a very few cases, but I think not at all, must be up for it. It is so dangerous that though the indigo roots to its creator, she believes.
the dirty Bit was even placed in orphanages as a-year-old because of illness and poverty in the family.
" It was very traumatic, and both I and my mother was corrupted by it. 65 years after the cry I still, because it destroyed both our lives, tells a clearly affected Bit.
Louis came back to his mother after three and a half years at the orphanage.

however, It was not entirely without misgivings, that the Bitten Vivi Jensen delivered the apology back.
- I will not hurt Godhavnsdrengene, but I have to be honest with myself. It is a scandal, and I fear that the future prime minister come to apologise for the mistake, as the current commit, says Bit.
It is not managed Extra Leaf to get a comment on the matter from the prime minister's office on Saturday morning. DR of social affairs and interior minister, Astrid Krag expressed itself on the matter in connection with the TV program Shredder:
- I'm annoyed with the fact that she delivers the apology back, for she has, like the other previously institutionalised, deserved the apology, which they got from Mette Frederiksen, said Astrid Krag.
