Many people have had a roller coaster ride of emotions since January 2022 when the public disclosure was made in relation to the behaviour of Lloyd Evans. It is my hope that people see that transparency has been maintained throughout this period and that every effort has been made to inform members of the Ex JW community of the facts in order that they may make an informed decision regarding Lloyd Evans.
The court case that Lloyd has brought against the seven named defendants has been long and drawn out. Contrary to Lloyd's claim that this process is “glacially slow” due to the Croatian court system, the facts remain that the documents lodged with the court were insufficient and as at December 2023, the process was further delayed as the court have been unable to get in contact with him.
Many hold the belief that Lloyd’s failure to respond to the court would result in a dismissal of the case however I am reliably informed that this is not the case, rather it is the case that the court must attempt to contact Lloyd for up to six years (from January 2022) before the case can be dismissed.
This may seem impossible to comprehend however this is apparently how the court system works in Croatia. It is my hope that even if Lloyd is aware of this process, that he will not make deliberate attempts to delay the closure of this case.
The named defendants have not been served with the documents therefore no formal response to this claim has been made to the court. Other measures are being sought by the named defendants to expedite the closure of this case as it is our opinion that the case is baseless and was made on vexatious grounds.
It is important to note that unless any document has an official translation stamp, the document has not been professionally translated and therefore some variations could exist. Lloyd has been invited to contact me should he believe that any of the translations misrepresent his claim.
This information continues to be shared not to divide the community, rather to unite and build a community that is built on freedom and truth.
