Since the BBC Radio 4 programme last Sunday that gave air-time to this investigation , I have been checking out the "Audit Checklist" and the "Shepherd The Flock" references so as to post up a refutation of these claims of "wholesale destruction of documents" . I see that Girl Next Door has done a good job of it already - Well done !
My points would have been
Elders are not supposed to keep personal data, anything important is to be handed to the secretary.
Child abuse records are to be specially marked and kept permanently
J W's have not been called by the Goddard enquiry , I doubt that they received any letter , as intimated by the BBC .
I am surprised at the shoddy journalism of the Beeb . There are plenty of genuine complaints against the WTS without inventing some.
