UNCLASSIFIED HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT ON MALAWI Jehovahs Witnesses False Reports 1975

RE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES, WHY DO WE GO BACK TO THE EVENTS OF 1972-73? THE EVIDENCE SUGGESTS, AND WE HAVE SO REPORTED, THAT IN 1975 JW’S WERE NOT BEATEN OR OTHERWISE PHYSCIALLY PERSECUTED. THE LAWYER HERE WHO WENT TO BAT FOR THE JW’S TO TRY TO GET MORE LENIENT TREATMENT FOR THEM TOLD ME ON NO 12, 1977, AND I SO REPORTED IN MEMCON SENT TO DESK, HE BELIEVED THE ATROCITY STORIES PUT OUT BY THE JW’S IN 1975 WERE RE-DOS OF 1972-73 EVENTS; THAT HE FOUND THE JW’S QUITE CAPABLE OF FALSIFICATIONS AND MISSTATEMENTS IN FURTHERANCE OF THEIR CAUSE. IN TALKS I HAD THIS WEEK WITH MISSIONARIES INMZUZU AND MZIMBA NONE WAS AWARE OF ANY ATROCITIES IN 1975.
