Join us this evening as former Minnesota resident Joanne Bougalis, tells of her mother's capture by a professional guardian and the subsequent deterioration in her mothers', Katherine Bougalis, health and psychological conditions that resulted from being unnecessarily institutionalized, by the guardian, and forcibly drugged with Ativan and Seroquel. After several attempts to free her mother from the guardianship which were of course rejected by the probate civil tribunal (which appears to be the protection arm of this dirty business), Joanne and her mother fled the country and are living safely and happily in Greece. Katherine's assets which were sizable are steadily being accessed by profiteers even as she is denied any access to those same assets. While still living in Minnesota a hearing for Katherine was scheduled. She was also made unavailable for her own hearing by the guardian after a doctor's appointment was scheduled conveniently for the same time as the hearing.
The guardian has been made aware in writing three years in a row where his ward is located. He continues to fraudulently report her missing and her whereabouts unknown in his annual reports. He ignores requests to step down claiming his position is supported by the Judge. He was notified both by Katherine's son and by Social Security of her whereabouts. He took specific steps to delay her social security, and took no steps to provide living and medical expenses for his ward, although it appears from reports the guardian is still paying (someone’s) medical expenses.
Having been stripped of all her rights, via the designation of "ward" of the state and suffering a "civil death", could Katherine now be viewed as escaped human property? Apparently so! As her owner of record continues to bill her estate each year.
