The portuguese channel TVI in Portugal, broadcast this documentary in October 2015 about Jehovah's Witnesses. Child abuse, shunning, blood transfusions and many other topics were mentioned in this report.
The documentary makers asked for a response from the leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses to the damaging statements made by survivors of child abuse and domestic violence.
The response was silence except for an attempt to make the documentary die by trying to blacken the journalist Ana Leal’s credibility.
After this the TVI Journalist Ana Leal, returns to Bethel hoping to get a statement after the broadcast of "In the Shadow of Sin" documentary. She wanted to put on record that it was Jehovah's Witnesses and their leadership who refused to take part.
David Splane, Governing Body member during his visit to Portugal, had suggested that only one side of the story was considered. Ana Leal now confirms Bethel was not only approached but refused to comment.
