During that period, Salzman acted as Dani’s only liaison with the outside world, delivering apologetic letters that she wrote to Raniere — few of which, Salzman testified, he actually read. At one point, Raniere asked Dani’s mother, Adriana, to stay confined to a room adjacent to Dani’s, as a way to make it clear to Daniela that her actions were “affecting other people” close to her, Salzman testified. When she finally left in February 2012, she was driven to the Mexican border by her father and another NXIVM member, who refused to give her immigration papers; in a series of emails read during the trial, when she begged for her papers back, NXIVM officials refused, accusing her of being manipulative and “playing games.” … [Read more...] about ‘I Was in One Mode: Protect Keith’: NXIVM Member Testifies About Naked Meetings, Group Sex, Dungeon Paddlings
