not if these statements are accurate

In December 2005, disturbing stories began surfacing of an ex-member who had suffered under the leadership of Jim LaMattery and his wife Chen in Scandinavia. They had sent away the very young child of an American citizen—literally sent the child to another country—against the wishes of the mother who wept and begged them not to do it.

Jim LaMattery has adamantly denied being part of illegally transporting American children across international borders. He defends himself, saying that he was not a leader and not responsible, but that his wife was. His accuser couldn't disagree more.
