COMMITTEE OF EVIDENCE
The following Interested Parties are called before an immediate Committee of evidence:
Jay HXXXXXX David Mayo Jon Horwich John Nelson Pat Hunter Peter Warren Chris Stevens Bess Sullivan Mo Samuals (Caneen) Janice Mead Julie Gillespie Alan Buchanan Kerry Gleeson Emile Gilbert Angelique Zimmerman Peggy Daroesman
This is an ecclesiastical proceeding to decide the fate of their ordinations.
Evidence has now been gathered through intensive investigation showing that these Interested Parties have been acting in cohorts with outside influences in an effort to manipulate Church resources, lines and terminals to forward their own vested interests.
Characterized by voiced disaffection and criticism of Church direction and ecclesiastical seniors and senior bodies, these Interested Parties have been found to be those taking the very management actions of which they complain.
False accusations alluding management actions were vicious and unfair were traced back discovering substantial evidence that these Interested Parties were themselves instigating and promoting the said undesirable management directives reportedly creating upset in various Church echelons.
Simply stated, those who were complaining were the very people making calculated management level decisions and actions designed to usurp the authority of well meaning Church Officials and-denigrate their true intentions to promulgate the Church of Scientology's religious tenets, increase Church membership and expand the Church's influence into Society.
These individuals met with little final success in their efforts to create a false atmosphere of malcontent, unrest, and schisms amongst Church echelons. However, a great deal of executive effort has been required to correctly locate the sources of these purposefully created conflicts.
These Interested Parties, while acting as staff and Church representatives, have - by evidence collected - engaged in plans which would enable them to establish factions of Church activities under their own misguided direction.
Finding evidence that in many cases these efforts have been pursued to reap personal profit, illegal benefits, or ungranted authority from which self motivated endeavors could be pursued, this ecclesiastical committee is formed together to make recommendations as to Official Church justice actions warranted.
The committee is alerted to the fact that although their proceedings are directed towards the eccleciastical ramifications of each Interested Party's actions, the crimes committed may very well enter into secular concerns. The nature of the transgressions, once the severity of the individual actions have been determined by the Committee, may fall under the catagory of Industrial Espionage and Sabotage, Conversion, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Grand Larceny, Intentional Interference with Contractual Relationships, or other civil or criminal Charges. Therefore, the committee is urged to keep very accurate and complete documentation and factual evidence of all procedures and findings.
It is noted that at least several of the Interested Parties were holding senior corporate positions granted them by Mother Church trustees or appropiate Church Official. The Committee may find, in the course of their proceedings, evidence to substantiate serious Board member or Officer neglect of duties and such must be documented.
Breaches of staff covenants must also be arbitrated as well as any refusals to uphold the Creed and Tenets of the Church in their staff dealings and activities.
The Committee must also gather data on the participation of Church members or ex-members in connection with any crimes or high crimes found to be committed against the better interest of the Church or its members and make recommendations as to prudent judicial handling of same.
Suppressive Acts against the Church are defined as acts or ommissions undertaken, to knowingly suppress, reduce or impede Scientology or Scientologists.
The Committee members are therefore urged to not underestimate the severity of any Interested Party's acts committed as Suppressive Acts, by policy, are clearly those covert or overt acts knowingly calculated to reduce or destroy the influence or activities of Scientology or prevent case gain or continued Scientology success and activity on the part of a Scientologist. As persons or groups that would do such a thing acts out of self interest only to the detriment of all others, they cannot be granted the rights and beingness ordinarily accorded to rational beings.
