Jehovah's Witness Leaders Suspected of Fundraising Crime

If you have a religion in Finland and want to raise money for a religion, you need a permission to do so. Permission must be applied for from the state. Jehovah's Witnesses have raised money in the Watchtower without permission, which is against the fundraising law.

Subpoena Warfare continues - this time in Finland


 
The Finnish branch office has filed a criminal report against a Finnish activist. The police found the crime report unfounded and closed the investigation.

The branch accused activist of unauthorized use of jwstream. The accusations were completely unfounded, since the person has never used the site and has no access to its material. The branch office wanted the police to investigate the activist's computer.

As the Finnish Ombudsman for Children had taken a stand on the position of children in the organization, the crime report also concerned him - so the branch office also attacked against the secular authority.

Branch office crime report also deals with shunning, and the JW lawyer's answer was:

Not one Jehovah's Witness is aware of the existence of a "brutal shunning arrangement".

"Luopuneet" with English subtitles



ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:

Atte, Milko and Tiia are former Jehovah’s Witnesses. They have been disfellowshipped from the religion and are therefore shunned by current Jehovah’s Witnesses, including their immediate family members. In this film they share their heartbreaking stories and lift the veil on this cruel practice. Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Finnish Press Officer Veikko Leinonen represents the organisation's view on the topic.

This documentary film was created by a group of media students from the Oulu University of Applied Sciences as a final year project and production. For part of the production team the film was the topic for their thesis.

Director Iita Pirttikoski
Journalists Emmi Klapuri and Noora Oja
