Evidence and circumstantial evidence speak a different language. Jehovah's Witnesses' adherence to the law is apparently nothing more than a cleverly engineered tactic. The elders are instructed like sick donkeys to keep data and facts secret. They are real seminars of lies which these people complete in order to be able to remain in their powerful position.
New guidelines for dealing with internal files recommend the destruction of files that could harm the religious community. The leadership knew and knows about the crimes (child abuse) and is still silent about them today. Elders are not obliged to report suspected cases to the police.
