The incident unfolded on June 7, when the Prime Minister was unexpectedly attacked, leading to her hospitalization for minor whiplash. The assailant, a 39-year-old Polish national, faces charges of assaulting a public official. He claims no memory of the incident, possibly due to intoxication or drug use at the time. His trial is scheduled for early August, attracting widespread media attention due to the high-profile nature of the victim and the circumstances of the attack.



In the case involving the assault on Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, iCognative technology offers a compelling solution to verify the suspect’s involvement accurately and efficiently. Authorities are suspecting the Polish man of physical assault, possibly influenced by drugs or alcohol, given his lack of recollection and evidence of intoxication. iCognative can be pivotal by exposing the suspect to stimuli such as photos from the incident scene, audio recordings from the time of the assault, or even images of the location to trigger brain responses. In the iCognative test, technology measures the suspect’s brain activity when exposed to relevant assault-related stimuli. This process identifies recognition patterns, suggesting knowledge of the crime.

This use of iCognative technology ensures that the investigation is based on reliable, hard-to-manipulate evidence directly from the suspect’s brain, potentially speeding up the legal process and ensuring a just outcome in a sensitive and high-stakes case.
