Lawyers for donors Derek and Dora Carrier have sued Ravi Zacharias International Ministries for access to 17 years of their financial records and papers, asking for expedited access in an effort to prove that Zacharias, who for years was engaged in the sexual abuse and exploitation of untold number of women, diverted donations to cover up this scandal, and that RZIM allowed it, according to Christianity Today
This burgeoning class action wants all records dating back from 2004, when Ravi first became a partner in the spa and massage therapy game, in order to have them reviewed in a forensic scan to see if any women were paid out, hushed up, or if the money was used to hire public relation specialists to distract and cover it up. (And perhaps, is still being used to cover up any new victims that come forward)
Their view isn’t that RZIM simply failed to keep proper tabs on Zacharias as he was groping women all through the world, but rather provided him the resources and cover to do it. Drew Ashby, one of the lawyers representing the couple, explained:
“RZIM is sitting on a pile of money, and no one knows how RZIM is spending that money. Our clients view this as God’s money, not their money, and they want that money back to invest in legitimate ministry purposes to build the kingdom of God.”
So far RZIM and their lawyers have been frustrating their efforts, with CEO Sarah Davis explaining to do so would cots too much money and time, and there isn’t anything to see there anyway, with Carrier’s lawyers fisting back that RZIM has already shown itself to be deceitful and of poor judgment.
“We are going to get to those books. The question is how long can … RZIM keep us from looking behind the curtain.”
A CALL TO ACTION
