A new report out of the Center for Investigative Reporting claims that the Jehovah's Witnesses' parent organization in the United States has systematically hidden child sexual abuse cases for more than 25 years.

Trey Bundy, the Reveal journalist behind the report, explained to HuffPost Live on Tuesday that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York has issued detailed memos since 1989 mandating spiritual leaders to immediately report any allegations of child abuse to the Watchtower's legal department before the police.

In a land mark child abuse case in San Diego in 2013, a representative of the Jehovahs Witnesses testified that these reports have been intercepted since 1997. The prosecution lawyer then subpoena'd the Watchtower Bible and Track Society to provide the data base of the Tens of Thousands of Documents collected. The society claimed the documents could not be processed as it would take the organization years to go through. The prosecution lawyer then brought in a software expert who testified stating there was no problem as they should be able process the information in about 2 months. The Watchtower Bible and Track society then responded stating it refuses to release the child abuse report documents. The judge responded to this refusal by removing the Watchtowers defense team from the lawsuit and defaulting a compensation of 13.5 million dollars to the victim.
