Thank you, Arara Azul! I hope you will let us know when NTM makes a response to IHART's report on Vianopolis. The rest of us may have no way of knowing that has happened, unless you tell us.

It has now been at least five weeks since IHART's report on Via was presented to the NTM USA Executive Board.



5 weeks! That's 42 days. Isn't that how long it takes to reach a new tribe?

O.k., thinking aloud here. Maybe on the 43rd day we will be found. The new lost tribe of MKs.

Probably not.


Doubt it! NTM is the mission that finds lost tribes, but can't find their own MKs, sort of stuffs the credibility doesn't it???????

This was from Pat Hendrix regarding the Panama investigation. Apparently is is a change in policy.

"The length of time that this whole investigative process is taking has been difficult for all involved. NTM is grateful for the many hours each investigator has dedicated toward learning the painful truths and ensuring that the offenders are identified once and for all. We are especially grateful to those MKs who have come forward to tell their experiences.
In sharing the results of this process, we will, as agreed be following the Best Practice Standards of the Child Protection and Safety Network and be seeking to balance transparency with the assurance of MK confidentiality. While we are striving for transparency, some information is only appropriate to be shared with the survivors and law enforcement. Survivors will receive confirmation of their abuse and the specifics related to their testimony. They will also receive the independent panel's specific recommendations for the offender in their case, and NTM's subsequent actions related to those recommendations.
When the NTM Executive Board commissioned IHART to investigate historical allegations of abuse, it was determined that confidences of survivors, regardless of how many or how few, must be protected both during the investigation phase and the reporting phase. Whatever the outcomes on any report, the confidentiality of the survivors will be protected.
The goals for those independent reviews of historical allegations of abuse remain unchanged. We desire that investigators here from any MK who wishes to tell their story and that the confidentiality of those who step forward be protected. We also want to confirm that all abusers have been identified and reported. Our intention is to do everything possible to ensure that no child abuser remains in our midst, that we make help readily available to any survivor who desires it, and that we have taken any and all steps necessary to make sure that our organization is as safe as possible for all families.

As clarified in the Panama thread, this was written by NTM, not Pat Hendrix.

So trying to parse this legalese and a**-covering language, what I deduced is:
Quote:
We're going to tell as few people as little as we can possibly get away with. And we're not going to make any of it public.

Or did I completely miss the point there?

So we want you to think we mean...., but what we really don't want to say is.....? This is all too familiar.
