Uniting church says it now has new policies, but Jehovah’s Witnesses fail to change two-witness rule or shunning in response to 1,008 allegations of abuse

The child abuse royal commission also heard that there were 1,006 alleged perpetrators of abuse within the Jehovah’s Witnesses, but the congregation did not report a single one to police.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses, the inquiry heard, were still refusing to change a second century biblical rule requiring two witnesses to prove wrongdoing.
