    Silent No More: The Survivors

    August 12, 2019

    Reporter: Mark Albert, Hearst Television Network

    A year-long investigation by the Hearst Television National Investigative Unit has uncovered new allegations of child sexual abuse and decades-long cover-ups inside the Jehovah’s Witnesses religious organization in the United States.

    The allegations span states, congregations, and generations and have been the subject of inquiries by attorneys general offices in at least three states, the National Investigative Unit has learned – inquiries that have not been previously reported.

    The findings are revealed in a three-part series of news reports this week that shed new light on the burgeoning number of people accusing the Jehovah’s Witnesses of systemic shortcomings in the protection of children within its religious communities.

    Fifteen people who grew up in the organization’s teachings and are now adults living in cities from the West Coast to the upper reaches of New England agreed to talk on the record for these reports; 13 of them gathered this spring in Sacramento, California, for the largest television group interview of its kind.

    Its a pity we didnt hear more from the people concerned here. The comments by the lawyer were telling.

    We are left to guess why the judge blocked exposure of the wt files on abusers when he did.
