T.S. had no such influence as to influence english court of law.
How Annie Besant, its president, got imprisoned? It at once shows that
your version is ridiculous. Also it's important that at least some
charges against Leadbeater were raised inside the T.S. The members of
the Communist Party which had all the power in USSR, nevertheless were
often imprisoned. Party just expelled them saying that they "disgrace"
party. The same thing is with todays ruling party "One Russia".
Anyway we have only allegations and charges and no proofs. For
example, Wood, who knew Leadbeater personally for many years, and
later wrote the book where he is critical about Theosophical Society,
doesn't confirm these charges. We should also remember that he at once
left Society lest the accusations against cast shadow on the Society,
and returned only when members invited him again. So, as theosophist,
we should defend Leadbeater, not despise him, following the precept of
Blavatsky not to widespread rumors, but defend, and only of you know
for sure that it's true, be silent (but not widepread anyway). I'm
sure that she herself would behave so. Moreover, he was her personal
The greatest and only trouble of all these theosophists who became
victims of slander (beginning from Blavatsky) is that they knew
nothing about what we call today "public relations".
