Could you please (preferably in your code temporarily) write 'emailTemplate' to a file and attach it to this post. Try not to touch it otherwise after doing so. Something like
Writer out = new OutputStreamWriter(new FileOutputStream("ee.txt"), "UTF-8");
out.write(emailTemplate);
out.close();

btw, it looks like your template is still in template form somewhat (as opposed to having had its placeholders filled out)
