I do not usually comment on current news stories.
However, this story concerns an ordained priest who treated her fellow human beings with intolerable cruelty.
It is not enough that she has”voluntarily” handed back her silly gong.
I do not believe in witch hunts (perhaps because I do not believe in witches).
But her crimes are heinous. A police investigation is required into her complicity and knowledge.
No doubt, she will blame her advisers. Her defence! She was the CEO and where does the buck stop?
In law, this is called a “cut-throat” defence. That is, you throw your conspirator or your co-conspirators under the bus whilst you stand safely at the bus stop.
If you can strike a deal with the prosecutors (and give them enough other people to prosecute) you may get off or, at least, be given a light sentence.
Especially, if you can hide under the magic cloak of priesthood.
Her co-conspirators should be hiding under their beds, where they belong.
