Smiddy - one of the key points I discussed with Prime Minister Gilliard, in relation to holding a Child Abuse Royal Commission, was that under Australia's Medicare laws the taxpayer was actually funding the professional help given to victims of abuse and not the institutions. This was potentially 100's of millions every year. Fiscal Policy. Make the organisations who committed the abuse, or who failed to report the abuse, financially liable. Now, under the redress scheme, when formalised, these organisations will be liable. This is what the JWs and Watchtower and the governing body were so terrified of when they instructed Terrence O'Brien to challenge the redress scheme in the final ARC hearing involving the JWs.
Can any of us go public
Well, you don't give info to JW Leaks and expect it not to go public. On the other hand, all relevant JW information has been published on the ARC website. My job is done.
If I remember correctly I provided the ARC with some 6800 pages of internal Watchtower and JW documents. I also provided a damning entire audio recording of a secret child abuse judicial hearing involving the alleged perpetrator and the teenage child victim. This took place in Australia. This judicial investigation, and secret hearing, was run by Watchtower Australia and their lawyer Vincent Toole. Watchtower flew in their child abuse handling team to conduct the entire hearing. Absolutely sickening, dehumanising and obscene in the extreme. It is probably the only recording of an official Watchtower sanctioned JW child abuse investigation in existence.
