In that article, Miyamura was asked how he became my persuader. Miyamura said, “Toru Goto and his family went to Niigata in 1995. I don’t know anything about it. His family members must have planned and carried out. 2 year later after that, Toru Goto’s father contacted me, and I met Toru Goto’s parents in Tokyo. At that time, Goto’s father was suffering from liver cancer and he had only 3 months to live. Toru Goto’s father said to me, “I can’t die like this. Could you please talk to Toru?” I said to him. ”I will talk to Toru if he agrees. After that, Toru Goto and his family members moved to Tokyo.”(Page 17). Miyamura said, “I don’t know anything about the details of Toru Goto’s move to Niigata.” But it is an outrageous comment.
I recalled that Matsunaga talked about Miyamura a lot while I was confined in Niigata. Matsunaga esteemed and trusted Miyamura. Matsunaga said, “There’s no one who knows the Unification Church matters more than Mr. Miyamura. All the information gathers at Miyamura. ”
As I didn’t accept Miyamura’s conversion, the number of his visits to the apartment was gradually reduced. After Sep, 1998, he hardly came, and only his followers visited the apartment. I counted how many times Miyamura visited the apartment by making a note on the book of the Divine Principle. He came to the apartment 73 times in total in the period until Sep. 1998.

a victim of deprogramming.
Miyamura came to the apartment immediately after my brother and sister contacted Miyamura on the mobile phone. It is understood that there was an arrangement between my family and Miyamura. It is evident that Miyamura was in the behind of my family for my forcible conversion and the confinement, and that Miyamura received the information from my family and my family acted based on Miyamura’s instructions.
Therefore I could not help but to hesitate to carry out the plan. I was overpowered every time when I approached to the front door. I received lots of violence and I got injured. Such incidents were recalled and the determination to carry out the plan wilted. After wavering, I tore the paper and flushed in the toilet. I was prostrated with despair and I used to think, “I shall be determined to live here for the rest of my life.”
