Carta el Ministro de Justicia, Sr. Rafael Catalá Polo




     Estimadas víctimas del sistema judicial teocrático:

     Los ayes en la piel de toro continúan, si cabe, con mayor intensidad. Son muchas víctimas: las de los abusos sexuales infantiles, los que sufren la muerte social y familiar impuesta por la confesión religiosa por querer abandonar libremente la comunidad religiosa, los que padecen las audiencias judiciales nocturnas --en la sombra-- en la trastienda de los Salones del Reino... sin luz ni taquígrafos y la coerción que se ejerce sobre el miembro de la confesión religiosa para que no acepte un tratamiento médico que implique la transfusión sanguínea. Todas ellas se han cansado de sufrir el silencio de los corderos impuesto por los gerifaltes teocráticos. Ahora han alzado la voz colectivamente, quieren reparación y justicia. Si eres una de ellas y quieres ayuda, el colectivo ha puesto un teléfono de ayuda a las víctimas: 91 489 09 83 (estará operativo en unos días).

     Desde hace unas semanas, los medios de comunicación españoles e internacionales se han hecho eco de las denuncias interpuestas por las víctimas en diversas comandancias de la Guardia Civil por todo el territorio nacional. Algunas, debido al paso del tiempo, han prescrito... lamentablemente. De modo que, los depredadores sexuales de menores pueden campar a sus anchas en su actividad predilecta... abusar de niños inocentes. Esto evidencia un desfase y carencia de nuestro código penal. Como en otros países occidentales, hay que cambiar la legislación para que este tipo de delito no prescriba. Los pederastas no pueden beneficiarse de carencias legislativas. Debe caerles el peso de la ley. Además, en caso de estar en libertad, deberían estar monitorizados por las fuerzas y cuerpos de la seguridad del Estado.

     De esta necesidad, ha surgido la iniciativa del colectivo Abusos TJ. ¿En qué consiste? Pues en esta ocasión, enviar una carta al ministro de Justicia de España, al Sr. D. Rafael Catalá Polo. La carta está colgada en esta entrada. Adicionalmente, se ha difundido por todo medio posible y al alcance de este colectivo de víctimas. Si puedes, por favor, divúlgala en tus redes sociales. El clamor y dolor de las víctimas debe escucharse alto y claro.

     Aunque no se ha colgado, la carta lleva el apoyo de 15 víctimas. Con su nombre completo y DNI. Quince valientes que están peleando para que las víctimas reciban justicia y reparación.

     Lamentablemente, de la confesión religiosa de los testigos de Jehová sólo esperamos su acostumbrado silencio, dando la callada por respuesta. Los mandamases teorcráticos están más interesados en mantener la buena imagen y el patrimonio económico. Su política de lavar los trapos sucios en casa --sin importar el coste económico-- está provocando movimientos telúricos a nivel internacional. Ya no pueden pasar durante más tiempo ocultos. Biblicamente, se diría que sus pecados se han hecho tan notorios que han alcanzado los mismísimos cielos... residencia del mismísimo Dios. De modo que, nosotros seguimos con la política del apóstata: A Dios rogando y con el mazo dando.

     Ya conocéis nuestra consigna: lo documentamos todo, todo y todo. ¿Quién es el padre de la mentira y los variopintos chanchullos teocráticos?

P. D.: Adjunto el texto de la carta traducido al inglés por nuestro hermano Juan Bourgon, al que agradecemos sus múltiples actividades teocráticas a favor de la verdad y lo correcto. También, a Ms. Susan Gaskin-Fusco, por su amabilísima corrección del texto.

Hon. Mr. Minister,

We want to know: Are there two judicial systems in Spain? Are the victims of child abuse unimportant? Surely your Honour will answer NO. However, the undersigned in this letter, with our names, surnames and ID numbers, will tell you the opposite, that there are two judicial systems, and therefore we feel we are victims of little importance. We believe it, we have documentary evidence, and we personally experience it every day. There is a secret parallel judicial system unknown to the general public, which judges Spanish citizens every week without any kind of control, without any legal/constitutional guarantee, without the presence of lawyers, without any assistance and, on top of that, everything is hidden from Spanish society.


The undersigned are united by a similar story. Some of us were born in a family that already belonged to a religious denomination called "Jehovah’s Witnesses", and some of us chose to join this religion at some point in our lives. It’s interesting that this religion is officially recognized in Spain ("notorio arraigo”) by your Ministry. We’ve suffered abuses in this organization, that’s why some of us as victims have recently joined the collective AbusosTJ. Since October of this year, media in our country have echoed in their printed pages, radio and TV programs news regarding this organization. This news, which doesn’t reassure society, is about public denunciations of facts denounced before different police forces, complaints that have been presented with evidence, testimony, written notes, policies of this organization, etc.

As shown by the media, there are currently courts in Spain that play a parallel role to Spanish justice. In these parallel Jehovah’s Witnesses’ courts (called "judicial hearings" by the organization), their members are secretly tried without the proper authorities ever being informed, with crimes as serious as sexual abuse of minors, scams, robberies, and more. (See Principles Statement at www.abusosTJ.org)

The media also proved that, in cases of sexual abuse, this religious organization opens a trial or "judicial hearing" when they become aware of a case. The victim lacks legal help and has to face the perpetrator in order to prove the validity of his claim, and only if a second victim is found or a witness to the crime will any action be taken by the organization.  In addition the organization has a database of these abuses which are stored in its National Headquarters located in Ajalvir (Madrid), and in the different congregations located throughout Spain. Such policies, widely explained in the Spanish press, show that every abuse has been recorded in different forms, which include the abuser's data and all the details of the abuse, and are kept in files labelled "Do Not Destroy". These files may also include information in electronic format.

Again, all of this is kept hidden from Spanish society and judicial authorities. No case has been reported up to date; in fact the written internal policies of this organization do not require reporting sexual offenses or other such crimes to the authorities. The press has also shown that these policies do not protect children and teenagers; rather, they leave them in a helpless position. In rare cases the attacked child is able to defend himself from his abuser, but as an adult, they won’t even be encouraged to try to solve their problems. "We must bury the bad experiences," summarized a national newspaper recently of what this organization says.

In May 2014, your Finnish counterpart, Ms. Anna-Maija Henriksson, faced a similar situation in her country. She expressed the following in various national and international media: "Of course, in Finland there can be no other system outside the ordinary judicial system”. When will all those who have suffered this parallel and unsecured judicial system live peacefully? Will children and teenagers accompanying their parents in this organization ever be safe? When will these trials or "judicial court hearings" end? What do we have to do? Should we directly go to the European Parliament and ask them to stop this?

Mr. Minister, we demand you to act immediately in order to change this inconsistent situation in our country. It is not only a legal issue, but a social one. The evidence we are handling speaks of hundreds of victims in a group of less than a hundred thousand active members.

We also demand that the State Attorney General act immediately to protect any victim of abuse, but above all to seize and protect the integrity of the files of sexual abuse that this religious denomination has been gathering for many years. Our collective objective is the change of this situation and that all people in Spain, especially children, whatever religion they or their parents profess, are protected and safe. We only expect redress and justice for those who have been abused. They deserve it.
We hope that you heed our request and we remain at your entire disposal for any additional information you may need.

Signed: Miguel García López
