@MS: If it is public, then it is OK. I don't know if any European country has made it public.
@thetruthseeker: I am sorry... I believe it is not easy to cope with such situation. But I don't see why JWs generally are to be blamed for that. If police released that man, and if they have confidence in him (maybe it is reasonable, maybe it is not), you should not blame JWs for that. Of course - I say again - I know that it is not easy to cope with such situation.
