This is not an attack upon the RC. It is an example of the sheer volume of work they are dealing with and the scope of events they have dealt with.
I went to the RC support place here in WA. It seemed that many people (staff) were dropping out from this place due to illness, holiday's ..family ....and so on. Finally I emailed Sydney and asked about the rapid turn over of people. My statement was not as accurate as I wished it to be etc.... I was concerned that facts might be lost in a general "body" of my story......
One day, out of the blue. A woman phoned me from the support centre and advised me that there was a JW who had already given testimony and wanted to contact me. My reaction was to ask her if she had the backing of Sydney for this sort of contact. NO!. She didn't. She just thought it would be a good idea. I asked her if she was certain of this woman's identity. No! She said that a colleague of hers had suggested it. I asked her for her colleagues name. She said she could not give me it.
" So you want me to meet with a stranger, who comes recommended second hand, through a colleague whom you refuse to name. Are you serious?"
I suggested she phone Sydney and confirm if this was endorsed by them. No. She had not rung them and she would not give her work mates name. But!! She had phoned Sydney to get my registration number..............I butted in..."They won't give it to you, you know. You could be anyone, and they will never tell you who I am, where I am or anything else. So who are you to suggest I meet up with some stranger?" " I think you need to phone Sydney immediately and ask them for any permissions, before you go too far. Have you not thought that there is much at stake, that I was threatened with legal action in around 1999? Do you know how these revelation will affect this particular religion?" She could say nothing to these questions.
( I feel we need well trained psychologists to deal with the intricacies' if brain washing and will add that suggestion.)
And so it went. Out come? Sydney fired this woman for breaching trust. They brought my case forward as I had reached a some limit in my emotional strength. They act swiftly, keep me updated, don't hide away from a mistake........and never fail to phone or email.. This I can deal with. These are honest mistakes being corrected as they feel their way into this new territory.
This is why they brought my case forward.........I think. Good people. Just thought you might like to know this little bit.
