I watched the vid and it to be believable. This guy from Irelandand and John Redwood from Survey spent quite a bit of time researching the case. While it's commendable that these elders that contacted Survey for help reported to authorities it's only what they should have done. At the end of the day though, WT owns their ass and is their "boss" so if they go against any directive then WT can fire their arse.
WT has these useful dupes aka elders by the short and curlies - damned if they do damned if they don't!
To carry out WT orders would compromise any working conscience to not follow orders is theocratic suicide.
