Charlotte Walsh SANTO DAIME Ayahuasca Defense Fund — her santo daime church involved in mocking court witness as mentally sick and deranged, disgusting abuse, death threats, legalization problems
Charlotte Walsh of the Santo Daime Netherlands Church brands herself as a member of the ADF steering committee. The Ayahuasca Defense Fund is a fund that has the objective of helping people out of criminal trouble when the authorities make arrests for the importation of Ayahuasca, or in some cases Santo Daime.
Her own Church in the Netherlands ran into some serious legalization troubles.
It was in part due to a group of people from her Netherlands Church that believed threatening police witnesses with murder, or mocking them as sick and evil, or threatening to finish them off, or to malign them is of an evil mind, was wise. The position of the Ayahuasca Defense Fund was that the one threatened with murder was undermining the sanctity of the Ayahuasca movement in Portugal. However, it had none to start with.
Brothers and sisters of the Santo Daime Church that Charlotte Walsh was a member of decided to migrate to Portugal and then to deal in substances, including LSD and marijuana. The troubles began when the police raided the home of four people from the Netherlands running Ayahuasca ceremonies in Portugal.
Personal use of marijuana is tolerated in Portugal, but Santo Daime Church members opening Ayahuasca centres and growing many kilos of it, whilst dealing in LSD and other substances, and then making fun of the witness to Criminal Court, is not.
But the history of the Santo Daime Church is riddled with stories of victim-hood and persecution, playing the poor me when caught with substances, on one hand, trafficking in substances and flouting the law with apparent contempt, and on the other hand 'crying' about how badly they are being dealt with by the authorities on the other,
In what will probably go down as the biggest disaster in the Santo Daime Church since the inception of the movement in Brazil, the Santo Daime in Portugal, assisted by Santo Daime people in the Netherlands decided to blame the Spiritual Guru for the police raid and proceeded to make threats to murder, with others lending support.
The support for threats of violence against the Spiritual Guru was extensive and involved numerous retreat centres as well as importers of the Santo Daime Church. Representatives of the Santo Daime Church claimed he was a rapist, an arsonist, a child abuser, a pedophile evil, sick, twisted and the like.
Others in the Church decided to say that the (censor) was a (censor) and a (censor), and was a homosexual (censor) and a (censor) and would be killed, finished off, (censor) and (censored). The one threatened with murder offered peace terms, as well as suggestions to spare their practice from prohibition, but was sneered at, (censored) at, called a (censor), a (censor) and a (censor)-bag as well as a (censor), a (censor) and a (censor) and told that he would be murdered, crippled or (censored) or labelled as a (censor) of (censor).
The Santo Daime Church were worried about the one falsely blamed as an informant mentioning Santo Daime, because he was a Church member.
He made statements only after being threatened with murder by representatives of The Santo Daime Church on police bail for trafficking crimes, and threats to murder.
He was not interested anyway about the affairs of the Santo Daime, and only got involved when he was falsely accussed of being a police snitch or an informant. But he was not a snitch, the person got raided with the cannabis farm because he was afraid of being caught and complained about remote controlled police drones.
The police took the cannabis away and posted on their website about the police raid. Representatives of the Santo Daime Church tried to lie and malign the one threatened with murder as a sick and evil liar, threatening to smear him online if he talked to Court as a witness.
He was threatened with serious injury, violence and murder.
The Tribunal made an Injunction against those responsible for the witness harassment, process number of the Criminal Tribunal is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal.
The police also got involved and filed complaints with the Prosecution and the Tribunal for witness harassment conducted by members of the Santo Daime Church headed by Adrian Freedman.
Adrian Freedman was served with Particulars of Claim for criminal harassment, a cease and desist order prohibiting further incitement of violence or mockery, as well as prohibiting circulation of private data and was told never to return to Portugal.
He thought that finding people to mock a witness as a peodophile was funny, but life taught him a lesson, by way of the State banning his Santo Daime and renewing their efforts to outlaw the activities of The Santo Daime Church.
The history of the Santo Daime is riddled with stories of victim-hood and persecution, playing the poor me when caught with substances, on one hand, trafficking in substances and flouting the law with apparent contempt, and on the other hand 'crying' about how badly they are being dealt with by the authorities.
The ADF showed no interest in correcting statements that implied a police witness was undermining the sanctity of the Ayahuasca movement in Portugal, which encouraged people to post disgusting abuse.
As a result the one threatened with murder and violence explained the problems to the Public Prosecutors in the Netherlands.
The Criminal Court of Appeal in early 2018 in a landmark ruling after 21 years of tolerance, ruled AGAINST the Santo Daime after the Church pre-emptively started a war with the Netherlands State in 2016, which they lost also.
The main decision from the Amsterdam Court of Appeal is that the import, possession, and use of Ayahuasca leads to an unacceptable danger to public health.
This means that, from [protected], Santo Daime works in the Netherlands are illegal and that their practice was CRIMINALIZED.
