    I just heard Japan Bethel has had a police raid?

    something about children but I don’t know the details

    anyone here got any info on this latest police raid? Is it to do with the Pensilvania trouble?

    I think is something similar to what's going on in Pennsylvania, I've posted this about two months ago:

    From where did you hear this?

  • llubrevlis2000

    It was on NHK Japanese news, reporters outside Tokyo Bethel today.

    proper police raid.

    something about children. I think it’s something about child abuse

    are there any Japanese speakers on here can check NHK news channel?

    In attempting to find a story on this, I did find this with todays date of 2-27-https://japannews.yomiuri.co.jp/society/general-news/20230227-93835/ re: blood issue & kids (The Japan News)

    and here- https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20230227_28/ (NHK World Japan) again about the blood issue and if it is child abuse or not

    That's why WT has scheduled for the membership to study articles like the one that was established for them yesterday (Sunday, 2/26/2023): All about PREPPING FOR PERSECUTION! The Borg has its followers FAINT OUR OF FEAR and wants them to develop PERSECUTION COMPLEXES. 😫

    Have not read anything online. Are you lying?

  • llubrevlis2000

    No definitely not lying

    NHK news had a report about child abuse and filmed the Tokyo branch with reporters outside with bethel in the background. Lots of Japanese writing and the report was all in Japanese so I couldn’t tell what was said.

    The authorities went inside for some reason, if it can be called a raid or what is the correct term I don’t know.

    officially it’s about children being beaten and too harsh discipline but it sounds like there is more to it.

    I wonder if it’s something to do with Pensilvania

    the news report also mentioned the blood issue

    There is a reddit post that describes the police raid as an unsubstantiated rumor: https://www.reddit.com/r/exjw/comments/11dokuq/japan_news_today_japan_copy_the_prosecutor_of/

    Mostly, what you can find is about a group of lawyers representing JWs or exJWs who are accusing the organization of promoting or condoning child abuse by encouraging parents to refuse blood transfusions. Others are claiming that they were beaten as children by their parents (presumably as a disciplinary measure) which they consider to be child abuse.
