    Harvey Grenfell of the UK Charity Commission when asked about the co-operation of Watchtower with the investigation:-

    "... the opposition through litigation that we've encountered is unprecedented."

    "... the opposition through litigation that we've encountered is unprecedented."

    He was straining very hard to be diplomatic and uncritical up to that point but that final comment was quite damning.

    Reminds me of a recent off-the-cuff comment credited to a rep from one of the American legal firms the Org uses...

    "They're excellent clients...they pay their bills on time and they're always in trouble..."

    (paraphrasing, but that's the gist)

    Last March, these 2 commissions in GB and the Aussie Commission have been also mentioned in this Swiss newspaper article. Its a good summary of the problem in German. 23'720 cases mentioned.
