I wish there was a list of cases broken down by organization.
I look forward to the completion reports on each institution/organizations investigated when the commission's work is done.
Agree with Londo111. Would like to know how many of those are specific to the JW ARC case.
From the article: "Commissioners have also met abuse survivors in 5,866 private sessions, with another 1,616 people yet to be seen."
Wow. That is a lot of harm that's been done.
You can't trust the media......
