“Your Honour and Commissioner, this is the 29th public hearing of the Royal Commission. This case study concerns the response of the church of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and its corporation, the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society of Australia, to reports of child sexual abuse within the Jehovah’s Witness Church in Australia.
“This case study will explore the experiences of two survivors of child sexual abuse and the Jehovah’s Witness Church’s response to their complaints of sexual abuse whilst they were members of the Jehovah’s Witness Church. The case study will also involve an examination of the systems, policies and procedures in place within the Jehovah’s Witness Church and Watchtower Australia for responding to allegations of child sexual abuse, and the mechanisms in place to prevent child sexual abuse within the Jehovah’s Witness Church.”
