  3. The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Britain had sought a review of a Charity Commission order to hand over documents relating to its statutory inquiry into the charity The body that oversees Jehovah’s Witness congregations in Britain has dropped its application for a judicial review of a Charity Commission order. The move brings to a close a two-and-a-half-year legal dispute between the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Britain and the regulator, which opened a statutory inquiry into the organisation in May 2014 because of safeguarding concerns. As part of that investigation, the commission issued the charity a production order, requiring it to hand over certain information to assist the inquiry. The WTBTSB requested separate judicial reviews against the inquiry and the production order. In August the Supreme Court ruled that the charity could not stop the inquiry going ahead, but it had already won the right to apply for a judicial review of the order in March. Today, the commission announced it would be dropping the production order and, in return, the WTBTSB had agreed to withdraw its application for a judicial review. In a statement, the commission said: "The charity has now provided a response to the production order by making certain documents available for inspection by the commission and, since the production order was issued, the commission has obtained additional information from the charity and other sources. "The commission has therefore decided to revoke the production order and the charity has agreed to withdraw its application for judicial review." The WTBTSB confirmed it had supplied the documents and had agreed to withdraw the review. A spokesman for the charity said: "Watch Tower will now work with the commission to explore the issues that are the subject of the statutory inquiry and to address the commission’s regulatory concerns." The commission’s inquiry into the WTBTSB remains ongoing. In its statement, the commission said: "With the legal proceedings now settled, the commission will continue to work with the charity to establish the facts and understand the charity’s safeguarding policy, procedures and practices in order to explore the issues that are the subject of the ongoing statutory inquiry and address the commission’s regulatory concerns." The withdrawal of the judicial review application marks the end of legal proceedings over the inquiry into the WTBTSB as a whole. But the charity is still fighting to block a separate statutory inquiry into the Manchester New Moston Congregation, opened at the same time as the one into the WTBTSB. These came after it emerged that victims of sexual abuse by a former trustee of the charity’s Manchester New Moston congregation had been required to meet and answer questions from their abuser, who had just been released from the prison sentence he was given for abusing them, according to tribunal documents. WTBTSB lost an appeal against the New Moston inquiry in the first-tier tribunal in April 2015, but has appealed to the upper-tier tribunal against the first-tier tribunal’s ruling, and the case is expected to be heard on 2 March. http://www.thirdsector.co.uk/jehovahs-witnesses-drop-application-judicial-review/governance/article/1421445

  6. Emmanuel Thomas l Thursday, January 19, 2017 MOSCOW, Russia – The Appeal Court in Moscow, Russia has granted Russian Prosecutor the leave to liquidate activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses(JW) in Russia after branding them extremist group. The JW had appealed the decision and tried to establish that the accusations of “extremist activity” are based on fabricated evidence and false statements that have been manufactured by local authorities to portray sincere worship as criminal activity. In the October 12, 2016, hearing, Judge M. S. Moskalenko of the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow did not allow testimony or video that exposed the illegal actions of the local authorities who are bent to ensuring that JW do not exist in Russia. However, on January 16, 2017, the Moscow City Court dismissed the Witnesses’ appeal that challenged the legality of the Prosecutor General’s warning issued against their national headquarters. The three-judge panel rejected all arguments filed by the Witnesses’ attorneys and rendered its decision after a 10-minute recess. The decision upholds the October 12, 2016, Tverskoy District Court decision that ruled in favor of the Prosecutor General’s Office.The warning, dated March 2, 2016, is now enforceable. Speaking before the hearing, International human rights lawyer James Andrik spoke of the implication. “If the Moscow City Court dismisses the appeal, the Prosecutor General’s Office could act on its threat against the Administrative Center. It could liquidate the Administrative Center and further harass the religious communities of Jehovah’s Witnesses and restrict their worship throughout Russia. If, on the other hand, the court upholds the appeal, it would be a breakthrough for justice”, he said. However Jehovah’s Witnesses are a peaceful group who hold their worship in the open and denounce all sorts of religious extremism. They believe in the Bible which also encourages them to respect secular authority. It is now left to the world to appeal to President Vladimir Putin to halt this attempt to wipe out witnesses from Russia http://starconnectmedia.com/2017/01/19/russia-gets-go-ahead-to-liquidate-jehovahs-witnesses-organisation/

  8. The man who signed as an assistor for more than 60 mail-in ballots while volunteering for councilman Shahin Khalique’s campaign could not identify the gender of one resident he claimed to have assisted. Foyes Ali, the assister, said he helped Isidro Amarante with her mail-in ballot at her house. He told former councilman Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman’s attorney Susan Champion she signed the mail-in ballot in front of him. “Do you think Isidro is a her?” asked Champion. “You just said her house.” Isidro Amarante is a him. Ali thought the name Isidro belonged to a female. He quickly began to change her to him. Isidro Amarante and his wife Grecia Amarante, both Jehovah’s Witnesses, testified last week that it is against their religion to vote. Both have Ali listed as their assistor on their mail-in ballots, but neither knew him. The wife said she did not know she was voting until her son told her after the fact; the husband said he did not know voting was possible through the mail. Under questioning, the husband at one point said: “I guess I have [voted].” Shahin Khalique’s attorney John Carbone used the last statement by the husband to question Champion’s mode of questioning Ali. The attorneys and judge Ernest Caposela compared notes to figure out whether the husband admitted to voting. The couple said they signed the mail-in ballots to “support the community” rather than to cast ballots. In all, Champion questioned Ali about 10 voters who said they neither voted in the 2ndWard election nor knew their assistor. She began by asking him whether he recalled assisting Miriam Tatis with her mail-in ballot. “I don’t remember. It happened a year ago,” replied Ali (pictured). He was shown the mail-in that had his signature listing him as the assistor. He then said he did indeed assist her with her mail-in. “Are you aware Miriam testified she did not vote?” asked Champion. “No,” replied Ali. He identified many of the voters he claimed to have assisted as family friends or his neighbors. Champion asked if he assisted Tahmeed Chowdhury with his mail-in. He said he knew Chowdhury from playing soccer. He said he had tea at Chowdhury’s home prior to assisting him with the mail-in. When told if he knew Chowdhury testified he neither voted nor knew Ali, he said: “I didn’t know.” Some of those he assisted were his mother’s friends and his uncle Jashim Uddin’s customers. He said his uncle runs a store that is patronized by many of those he assisted. An employee at a Dunkin’ Donut, Ali at times appeared offended when asked whether some of those he assisted were his friends. Ali is listed as an assistor for Grecia Amarante. Champion asked if he exchanged pleasantries with her prior to assisting her with her mail-in. Ali responded in the affirmative. “Do you speak Spanish?” asked Champion. Grecia Amarante testified through an interpreter. “No,” responded Ali. He later said he speaks a little bit of Spanish. The judge reasoned a person using an interpreter is comfortable in a language other than English, but this does not mean the individual cannot speak some English. “Are all of those people lying?” asked deputy attorney general Alan Stephens to Ali. Carbone objected to the question. The judge had him rephrase the question. “Were they not being truthful?” Stephens asked Ali about the 10 voters. “I don’t know. They were probably nervous,” said Ali, who though calm at the witness stand was biting his nails. The judge also heard testimony from two other witnesses. Asad Afrooz testified he was registered out of 102 Sherman Avenue when he voted in the 2nd Ward election. He did not say that he was evicted from the home on June 8th, 2015. Champion showed him an eviction document. He said he moved to 408 Union Avenue in the same month after the eviction. He then moved to 124 Albion Avenue in the 1stWard sometime in 2016 prior to settling at 424 McBride Avenue. “You were served at 124 Albion Avenue?” asked Champion trying to establish he lived in the 1st Ward during the election. “Yes,” replied Afrooz. “It was a holiday. I was at my parent’s house,” he said. He said his in-laws reside at 124 Albion Avenue. It is common in Bangladeshi culture to refer to in-laws as parents. Asked if he knew which ward 124 Albion Avenue was in, he replied: “I have no idea.” He said he was working two jobs and was too busy to change his address from the home from which the landlord evicted him. Afrooz said when he submitted his mail-in ballot using 102 Sherman Avenue he was living at 408 Union Avenue. He told the judge people have been telling him he could face punishment for voting from the home from which he was evicted. “People are telling me I’m being locked up. I can’t even get into a coffee shop without being harassed,” Afrooz told the judge. “You’re not getting locked up,” Caposela told Afrooz. Totowa resident Nasrin Younus, a student at Montclair State University, voted from 197 Preakness Avenue. She told the court her family moved from Paterson to Totowa on May 15th, 2016. Younus said her father continues to own the property. She said he rented the apartment the family occupied. In a questionnaire she completed for investigators from the Passaic County Superintendent of Elections Office days after the election, Younus wrote she has been living at 52 Washington Place in Totowa for the past five months. The deputy attorney general asked if the answers on the questionnaire was accurate. “Because it was rushed I can’t say everything is accurate,” she said. She said investigators visited the Totowa home days after the election, blocked their driveway, and had them complete the domicile questionnaires. “We had no choice but to sign those papers,” said Younus. She said the investigators “pressured” her and her brother to complete the forms. “So that’s not accurate?” asked Stephens. “That’s not accurate,” replied Younus. She said her family purchased the Totowa home in December, but did not move in until May 2016. The 2nd Ward election fraud trial has been ongoing since September. Champion said she is close to resting her case. The judge expects her to call the rest of her witnesses to the stand by early February. The trial will resume on January 27th, 2017 at the Passaic County Courthouse.

  12. “Breakfast congee” with maple granola, blueberries,and poached strawberries. Photo: Melissa Hom Australians have contributed many things to the New York coffee shop, flat whites and avocado toast among them. And as of next week, the Good Sort brings something new to the category: sweet and savory congees, the rice porridge commonly consumed in China for breakfast. This makes sense, since the shop is co-owned by Australian expat Eddy Buckingham and his Chinese-born partner Jeff Lam, and is adjacent to their restaurant, Chinese Tuxedo. There’s a turmeric-and-coconut congee with Champagne-poached cranberries; a mushroom congee with braised shiitake and jicama, served with the Chinese cruller called youtiao; and even “Aunt Kate’s pear crumble congee.” There are also Chinese teas, espresso drinks, and come spring, fresh juices, all categorized by color. Another innovation: Everything is vegan, including the pastries and the “milks” (oat, coconut, almond) in the lattes. Clockwise from top left: Aunt Kate’s pear crumble congee with poached pears. Turmeric-and-coconut congee with Champagne-poached cranberries. “Breakfast congee.” Not a congee: pandan tapioca with kaffir-and-palm-sugar caramel, lychee, pineapple, and puffed rice. Photo: Melissa Hom Color-coded vegan lattes, made with non-dairy “milks” and no coffee: Red (beet), Black (sesame and activated charcoal), and Gold (turmeric).

Photo: Melissa Hom Prior to becoming a Sino-Australian vegan coffee shop, the space was a Chinatown liquor store. The espresso machine is Italian; the Vittoria coffee beans come from Australia. Photo: Melissa Hom The shop is next to Chinese Tuxedo on Chinatown’s most atmospheric block. Photo: Melissa Hom The name refers to Aussie slang for “a person you like and would like to spend more time around,” according to co-owner Eddy Buckingham.

  18. Is there a letter containing this warning? Or any original documentation?
  19. Reverting to the original question and ignoring the complex analysis of detail since, could we reword this as: Did the demon influencing the teachings of the "Nation of Islam" plagiarise Watch Tower Teachings (erroneous or otherwise) from Rutherford's Time, to create confusion in the minds of the "ignorant and unstable"? or is that going a "bridge too far"?
