Jehovah’s Witness Leadership Issues an Official Directive to Conceal Child Sexual Abuse

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. Posted in Sexual Abuse on Thursday, December 15, 2016.

In 1997, an official directive was issued to all Jehovah’s Witness elders instructing them to report allegations of child sexual abuse to the New York headquarters, and not the authorities, in a special blue envelope. The church now refuses to turn over to the court any information regarding the names and whereabouts of the child abusers disclosed in these specific blue envelopes. Read more about this institutional neglect of child abuse victims.
