Statement from the Executive Committee, issued 24 June, 2020

The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (IOSCS) is appalled by the revelation that Prof. Jan Joosten has been convicted in France of possession of images and videos of child pornography. We express our utter abhorrence of his actions, and our profound sympathy for the victims of such crimes. In the light of these developments, the IOSCS executive committee has voted to remove Joosten from his position on the committee and from membership in the IOSCS.
