Documents Relating to January Sacking of CD and Assistant CD
In spite of being recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche and then being appointed by the outgoing CD and her Assistant in December 2018, Frank and I were dismissed on the 17th of January 2019 without warning or consultation (or explanation over the following 6+ months).
These are relevant documents from the time. They are published for anyone who is more interested in the facts rather than the rumours. My comments were written before Ven Roger revealed to me in May that he had supported the sackings. Prior to that revelation, I had believed that the sacking had been entirely the result of undisclosed emails between one EC member and FPMT Central Office.
