The jw ( I was one for a time) have what is called a judicial committee that is effect a kangaroo court. Three elders will sit in judgment of alleged wrongdoers Some in the case of fornication they will often want to know all the details not just did you have sex dut where when how often what position etc. A congregation in Manchester tricked a victim od child abuse to be questioned by the peadeo after he was released from prison. This was investigated by the charity commision and took some time as the JW fought in court against it. I have no direct knowledge of this case but it doe not come as a surprise the story as been shared around the ex jw community recently.
The 2 people were both teenagers, ("4 years apart" ), and were having repeated encounters, one of which was taped by the male, who took it to church elders IMO to try & prove it was Not rape, perhaps after a breakup?
Story is Weird, the supposed legal charges against the elders & church is weird...I would be very interested to read more from another source.
Something about this story stinks. Not sure what it is, due to limited information. I saw no response, official or otherwise from the organization; making the piece entirely an allegation. Possible? Yes! Probable in it's entirety? Maybe... Can't take it at face value though. Sounds suspicious without any response from the accused published.
If the young woman alleges being held against her will and forced to listen or anything else, that is false imprisonment and kidnapping. Those are acts not protected by religion and ought to be investigated and prosecuted.
Sick, deranged, disgusting Sadistic Bastards the whole lot of them.
Rape IS RAPE no matter they choose to paint it, ALL they are doing is protecting themselves, their religion and the Rapist at the expense of the victim, is it any wonder that I am enraged at reading this.
