    Sorry, I can't quite understand your question, perhaps you would rephrase it?

    Are you referring to DF's etc?

    Are you referring to elders not putting what the jw being investigated are accused of in a df action in writing as well as details/evidence about it?

    Nothing should be put in writing to any disfellowshipped person to advise him of his status or the 'reasons for it without specific direction from the Society. The rules and procedures of Jehovah's Witnesses do not require such written disclosures. Anything in writing submitted to a judicial committee should be kept in strict confidence. If a judicial committee disfellowships an individual, he should be informed orally of the action taken and of the right to appeal. If the wrongdoer refuses to attend the hearing, two members of the judicial committee should attempt to contact the individual at his home and inform him orally of the decision. If this is not possible, the two elders may be able to inform him by telephone.

    Blondie, you should post this to the girl who is so stressed out about the elders pushing her to sign a letter DA'ing herself. If the elders don't have to write down anything, why should she?

    The reason NOTHING is to be put in writing is so they can DENY DENY DENY in the name of "Theocratic Strategy" anything that does not suit them or support their control of the situation.

    Anything in writing about You can be demanded under data protection Laws of most civilised countries. (Though dubbies are not exactly civilized, they worship an ancient Death god, who they are delighted to tell us will destroy most of humanity, to fertilise their "Paradise" on earth.)

    Isn't it amazing how the elders want things in writing to da, but they protect themselves by not putting anything in writing. No recording devices can be used. The elders are not to reveal if they have contacted the Branch. They want the flock to be open and declare the truth, but the elders are exempt.
