Piedras Negras, Coahuila.- Now, a scandal involving the rape of a minor, inside the Jehovah's Witnesses church, comes to light and the high command of that religious organization is involved in covering up the crime.
The defense lawyers of the victim, Hugo Flores and Luis Miguel Espino, who, in 2018, denounced the pedophilia within the Catholic Church, today filed a complaint with the north one delegation of the Attorney General's Office of the State against a "Pastor" of the Jehovah's Witnesses, who appears as alleged responsible for the sexual abuse of the minor.
The facts, according to the lawyers, occurred in the church of that organization, located in the ejido Villa de Fuente, where the alleged perpetrator and member of the Jehovah's Witnesses of 31 years, sexually abused the young woman repeatedly from years ago.
Regrettably, they said that, according to the laws of that religion, they have to be brought to a trial inside the temple by the group of elders that governs and then the authorities.
It may interest you:
They indicate that "the elders", knowing that the act was committed, concealed the crime of their "pastor" because of the influence they have within that congregation, they add.
The lawyer, Hugo Flores, said that the young woman came last week to ask for her support so that the law against the member of the Jehovah's Witnesses can be acted on so that justice can be done, since within the group of Witnesses of Jehovah has not done anything.
He indicated in the anteroom of the Office of the Prosecutor that other cases will be seen within this church, but that many do not come to denounce because of shame.
