In a recent report by the BBC,
the UK Branch of Jehovah’s Witnesses
is being accused of destroying documents
it was ordered to preserve.
The Independent UK Goddard inquiry sounds ominously similar to the Australian Royal Commission investigation into institutional child abuse which has created significant bad press for our Organization not only in Australia but around the world. (Click here for more information.)
If it follows a similar course to its Commonwealth partner, the outcome for Jehovah’s Witnesses could be dire indeed. The inquiry is just getting underway, yet already there has been a significant negative development for the organization. You can follow this developing story at the 33:30 minute mark of the broadcast.
