A Nova Scotia based law firm, McKiggan Hebert Lawyers, published a rather extensive overview about claims that Watchtower and Jehovah’s Witness leaders are involved in covering up child abuse within the religion. The undated post appears prominently on their corporate website.
We were just notified about the following press release. This is a major and important legal action taken against three Watchtower entities by a major law firm based in Toronto, Canada. We will follow-up with coverage and commentary as quickly as more information becomes available to us. This could be a major groundbreaking legal event for the Watchtower both in and outside of Canada.
According to the San Diego Reader news website, Attorney Irwin Zalkin and legal representatives for the Watchtower Society will make an appearance in a San Diego, California District Court on September 15, 2017. They will be participating in a hearing to discuss a Watchtower motion to seal documents requested by the court as evidence.
The evidence is clear (thanks to the extensive work and research of the Australian Royal Commission) that Jehovah’s Witnesses have not only failed to protect the children in their midst – but have also shrugged their responsibilities and resisted any efforts to make needed changes in their policies.
