In 2012, the charity commission refused charitable status to the Plymouth bretheren for a number of reasons. Some of these reasons included the 'practice' of ,'shutting up' and 'withdrawal'.
Given what can happen (ie exclusive bretheren losing charitable status) and the fact that Watchtower have pissed off the cc by going to great lengths- fighting tooth and nail- to prevent their investigations into WT policies on handling child abuse cases, domestic violence and shunning here in the uk; even taking their case to the supreme court, yet lost! WT lawyers and branch committee members must be getting pretty nervous knowing they have to face a tenacious charity commission who will go through everything with a fine tooth comb.
