Nun Destroyed Documents That 'might cause embarrassment'
Aired September 4, 1997
SANDY MATTICE, MAJORITY COUNSEL: "OK. Now, in your deposition, Man-Ho, you told me you no longer have a copy of that list [of donors] that you gave to John Huang, right?
MAN-HO, MEMBER HSI LAI TEMPLE: "Right."
MATTICE: "But there was a copy of the list that you kept at the time that you gave it to John Huang, right?"
MATTICE: "Well, what happened to your copy thereafter?"
MAN-HO: "I threw the copy away."
MATTICE: "You threw the copy of that list away?"
MATTICE: "Why did you do that?"
MAN-HO: "After controversies last October, I'm afraid that the document might cause embarrassment to the temple."
MATTICE: "And so you destroyed it?"
MATTICE: "And in fact, you destroyed a number of other documents that had been created at the temple in connection with the event, did you not?"
MATTICE: "And that was because of your concern about embarrassment the documents might cause?"
