smiddy3 - A class action is now plausable and can, once the legislation is put together by the Attorney-General of Victoria, be seriously looked into by class action law firms.
There is also a powerful letter in existence, signed by the Attorney-General of Victoria, that is heavily critical of the ongoing failure of Jehovah's Witnesses to comply with the law.
There are also court precedents in which Watchtower Australia testified as to the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses being responsible for any alleged criminal or unlawful activity in the state of Victoria, and not the corporation.
By the time the laws are introduced it will be ten full years of non-stop campaigning and fighting for justice in Victoria, i.e. 1 July 2008 - 30 June 2018. Countless court cases, human rights cases, investigations, prosecutions, two parliamentary inquiries, and a royal commission later have produced a mountain of evidence to support a class action. All that was left is to close the legal loophole.
If anyone does not believe that those in the state of Victoria, Australia, don't have the staying power they are only kidding themselves. To quote a friend: "The governing body believe and shudder."
Interesting times indeed.
