Apparently the elders, right now in the U.S. and U.K., are asked to destroy any personal notes from JC hearings. I believe it is to limit litigation. That is what I have to suspect, but not 100% sure, may just be a rumour. However, if true very disturbing. Such elder who follow such direction, you would have to wonder if they even have a conscience.
What is even more disturbing is the vast rank and file would have no idea whatsoever at all about what their local elders are doing. The ones who they apparently trust and confide in!!! Despicable.
