Compulsory admission (BOPZ)


The other area that Dekens & Groenendaal specializes in, besides criminal law, are cases of compulsory admission to psychiatric hospitals. Mr. Dekens en mr. Groenendaal have both specialized themselves in this field of law. Although this is generally considered to be an aspect of persons- and family law, it will still frequently occur that suspects in a criminal law case have compulsory admission imposed upon them. Moreover, compulsory admission shows a resemblance to criminal law in the sense that it too deals with a person being taken into custody against their will, as ordered by the government. It is therefore important that the rights of psychiatric patients are upheld accordingly, and that the decision to incarcerate is not taken lightly. Mr. Dekens en mr. Groenendaal are keen to give a cause as such the attention it deserves.
