I also sent an e-mail to Angus Stewart and team thanking them for the way they conducted the Royal Commission / Jehovah`s Witnesses .Child sexual abuse.
I too received an e-mail back within two days thanking me for my input and that they hoped to make a difference for those victims .
Of course this Royal Commission was primarily started as an investigation into the Roman Catholic Churches mis-handling of sex abuse cases .
The Catholic Church felt they were being victimized by being the only one to be investigated and insisted other organizations should also be included . (Thank you Catholic Church )
And that is why Jehovah`s Witnesses and other institutions are also part of this inquiry , e.g. Salvation Army , Boy Scouts , etc.etc.,
So , for people outside of Australia , this is not just about J.W.`s , it`s an enormous task covering abuse by many organizations both religious and secular , and it is not going to be over soon .
Don`t expect anything of any significance to happen before the next 3 years .
However the good news is , it`s a start .It`s a first step in the right direction .And positive things will come out of this , I have no doubt.
My point is , don`t get despondent if nothing seems to happen in the next few months or even the next couple of years . Justice , if it is going to happen won`t take place overnight.
Sorry , but I think this should be a post in it`s own right for our friends outside of Australia so they wont be expecting too much to happen in the near future.
