Jehovah’s Witnesses under fire for not talking as sexual abuse claims rise

So far 267 reports of sexual abuse involving the Jehovah’s Witnesses community have been made to a hotline opened at the end of last year, Trouw said on Wednesday. The hotline was set up by the Reclaimed Voices foundation in 2017 after the paper published a report on the growing scandal in November. In an open letter to the organisation, the foundation is calling for a meeting with church officials but says that so far its advances have been rebuffed.
