Beijing, 20 January 2022 (TDI): China criticized the United States (US) government on the allegation of harassing 311 Danish children in the 1960s, and asks to accept the responsibility by apologizing and recompensating the victims.

Spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Zhao Lijian stated during the press briefing in response to a recently released documentary called “The Search for Myself” by Danish Radio which has disclosed the covert research financing by CIA in 1960s.

The CIA’s record of human rights violations around the world is not new, but it is still shocking to learn that they have even preyed on children. As according to Former US Secretary of the State Mike Pompeo, CIA officials follow the creed of “we lied, we cheated, we stole”.

Zhao also cited a CIA mind control project that took place over the world between the 1950s and the 1970s, which was also revealed in the documentary. He went on to say that the human victims experienced long-lasting consequences, such as psychiatric illnesses and amnesia, or died in a vegetative condition.

Zhao further stated about the CIA that it’s obsessed with fabricating false evidence to smear other countries, setting up black sites to violate human rights and providing the dark money to incite coups.

The US government always talks about “human rights” and “democracy”, but it doesn’t practices what it preaches. Zhao assertively demanded that the US government should offer apologies and compensations to the victims and shoulder its due responsibility.

What is “The Search for Myself”?

Hundreds of Danish orphans were subjected to examination in a covert experiment financed by the CIA to demonstrate the relationship between genetics and environment in the development of schizophrenia.

According to the said project, in the early 1960s, 311 children from various orphanages were taken to the basement of the City Hospital for tests in the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen.

A participant in the experiment and current filmmaker namely Per Wennick revealed that access to the papers and old register from those years made him able to find out the ties of the CIA to this project. The project received 3.4 million Danish kroner in the first year, which equates to approximately 4.6 million Danish kroner today.

According to the report, the research project also got US $21,000 equivalent to nearly 1.2 million Danish kroner, from the United States’ health agency, the Human Ecology Foundation, which was functioned on behalf of the CIA.

The Danish-American research project, which was initiated in the early 1960s, was concerned with the research on schizophrenia. Many of the orphans brought to City Hospital were residing in the surrounding neighborhood.

Wennick’s Revelations

The said research was comprised on a variety of associative and cognitive tests, as well as physiological and psychological examinations. One of the numerous tests required the experimental children to agree or disagree with around 600 various statements. Wennick also discovered that the goal of the studies had been concealed purposefully from the children.

Wennick told Radio Denmark that as one of the children coerced into participating in the experiment, he was positioned on a chair by affixing the electrodes on his arms, legs, and chest around his heart. Researchers of the said project applied loud and high pitched sounds on the children, to evaluate psychopathic traits in the subject children.
