For the past 10 years members of the Say Sorry team have provided up-to-date factual and unique content to international law enforcement agencies, government departments, politicians, inquiries, royal commissions, law firms, and the media. We also provide advice for investigations, civil lawsuits, and prosecutions involving the Watch Tower Society and the Church of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Say Sorry seeks to expose and hold accountable the Watch Tower Society and those leaders within the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization that disregard and violate the laws of the land, or that cause religious harm to sections of the community.
To further our objectives Say Sorry has released and published this week on our Submissions page a series of selected government submissions, papers, presentations, and legal action that we have made, or have been involved in, from 2011 onwards.
Among the documents released are some of our recent 2018/2019 submissions, including:
- To the Office of the Children’s Guardian on the Regulating Child Safe Organisations Discussion paper for consultation;
- Submission to the Joint Select Committee on oversight of the implementation of redress related recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in relation to the Royal Commission’s “Report of Case Study No. 29 – The response of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Australia Ltd to allegations of child sexual abuse”;
- The 113 page, 14 May 2018, document entitled Submission in support of complaint to the New York State Attorney General, via the New York State Legislature, requesting a special Charities Bureau investigation into Watchtower Bible & Tract Society of New York, Inc., et al. in relation to serious allegations of unlawful conduct and the covering up of criminal activities committed by up to 775 United States citizen”; and
- Chaplaincy and the Privacy Rights of Children. A fully referenced transcript of a Say Sorry lecture held in Sydney, Australia, on 28 April 2018.
Additional submissions and papers we have made will be released in the future, including our 27 January 2019 submission to the Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.
It is our hope that the information published may assist others.
