Newshub – 30/08/2022
A former resident of Gloriavale has given a damning assessment of life in the secretive community, recalling the “creepy” and aggressive behaviour of the leaders and fearing for his daughter’s safety.
Isaac Pilgrim was giving evidence at the Employment Court in Christchurch, where the judge was told of women being forced to work and being expected to have children as a way to claim money from the government.
Pilgrim’s story is one of being controlled and living in fear.
