Justice for OKCvictims #MeTooGuru

A group of cult-born kids now adults & free of the grip of the sectarian drifts of a Buddhist community they were born in where physical, sexual & mental abuses enfolded for decades, are fighting against the cult founder & his organisation in court after a 20 Year long Judicial inquiry :

1997 – Cult wide police raid 
1997 – 2003 Instruction of the case, first 2 cases of sexual & physical abuses
2003 – 2008 Lost in Limbo of the Belgian Justice system
2008 – New complaints of sexual abuses
2013 – More Limbo’s in the Belgian Justice system
2016 – First Trial
2017 – First verdict (4 year suspended sentence)
2018 – Appeal by Spatz-OKC of the first verdict trial (they won)
2019 – Counter-Appeal by the civil parties
2019 – Court of Appeal break the entire previous appeal verdict 
(we won this round)
2019  – New final Trial to be announced !

OKCinfo was launched at the end of 2015 as a desperate last minute intervention into a existing trial launched by the Belgian State against the OKC cult nearly 20 years before.
The 23 of us -supported by another 40+ youngsters ex-OKC born kids- have been since backed by talented lawyers ready to defend our case.

The initiative is born out of the realization that if we, children of the first, second and third generation were not going to talk, the cult leader and the clique around him would manipulate the trial and the court to establish there is no victims, there is no complaints, it’s not a cult but a “Tibetan Buddhist inspired community” persecuted by the Belgian State.

How we will use the funds

Pay our lawyers
Pay medical expenses (mainly psychological support)
Pay transportation costs for civil parties living abroad
Pay the communication costs of the OKCinfo initiative

Any surplus will be donated to organisations fighting against sectarian drifts and sexual abuses

FR -

OKCinfo a été lancé fin 2015 en tant que tentative désespérée de dernière minute dans un procès existant lancé par l'Etat belge contre la secte OKC près de 20 ans auparavant.
Les 23 d'entre nous - soutenus par plus de 40 autres jeunes ex-enfants nés de l'OKC - ont depuis lors été soutenus par des avocats talentueux prêts à défendre notre cause.

L'initiative est née de la prise de conscience que si nous, enfants de la première, deuxième et troisième génération, n'allions pas parler, le gourou de secte et la clique autour de lui manipuleraient le procès et le tribunal pour établir qu'il n'y a pas de victimes, pas de plaintes, que ce n'est pas une secte mais une "communauté d'inspiration bouddhiste tibétaine" persécutée par l'Etat belge.

Comment nous utiliserons les fonds

Payer nos avocats
Payer les frais médicaux (soutien psychologique principalement)
Payer les frais de transports des parties civiles vivant à l'étranger
Payer les frais de communication de l'initiative OKCinfo
Tout surplus sera reversé à des organisations qui se battent contre les dérives sectaires et les abus sexuels.
