Are you suggesting, in your statement mentioned above, that both Dr. 
P. Thirumalai and Dr. M. A. Raveendran have lied in their public 
statements about Radha Burnier's health?

Would you call the categorical statements below, which were sent to 
thousands of TS members, BEFORE the voting began, suspicions? 

"she had a serious stroke which left her unable to speak for at least
a month and deprived her of a large part of her memory. Her recovery
was slow and incomplete, especially as far as short term memory and
recall of names are concerned. In conversation, she no longer
understands anything but short and simple sentences."

(Maxence Ondet, Secretary to the French TS Board, in a letter to all
TS members in France, 29 March 2008)

"...showed a weakened mind or brain damage." (from Ondet's letter
above mentioned)

"What a pity that such a great soul now errs because of the
misfunctioning of the brain!"

(Tran-Thi-Kim-Dieu, Chairman of the European Federation of the TS
since 1995 and additional member of the Society's General Council, in
a circular email message to dozens of people around the world, 20
March 2007)

"Radha seems to be recovering physically from the stroke she suffered
a year ago, but, given her age, she still has periods of low energy
and her memory is inconsistent."

(Betty Bland, National President of the TS in America in a letter to
TSA members, April 11, 2008)
