I know that there's been a lot posted about this already but I wanted to ask if anyone knew if the WTS was in breach of the information commissioner's office (UK) directive or am I misunderstanding something.
The IOC give a list of requirements with regards to charities and in part it says
that consent is not a precondition for the service provided.
The WTS in their instructions to the elders say that not giving consent means
that the congregation will not be able to evaluate the person's suitability for certain activities; and it also excludes them from being recorded in congregation meetings.
Does this contradict the IOC or not?
Yes good catch, send it to the authorities along with some proof like a scan of a cobe letter
Save us all from the gb witch hunt
Lost in the fog
see John Cedars latest video which discusses this. As there are ‘consequences’ if witnesses do not give consent it is coercion. John Cedars spoke to the IOC. You should definitely voice your concerns too.
