Subject: Paulette's diary: (16) Frame-up/ L Ron Hubbard Jr. letters
Date: 24 Oct 1997 11:16:32 GMT

In the previous segment, I explained why I thought L Ron Hubbard Jr., was involved in Scientology's frame-up of me.

To continue: while I was under indictment, and in a very bad state physically and emotionally, Roy Wallis, who lived in Scotland, came to New York to interview me and others for his book.

After talking to me, and hearing what had happened, he interviewed Nibs (L Ron Hubbard Jr.,) a braggart, who began hinting of his involvement in the frame-up and what he got for it from Scientology and or his father.

HARASSMENT DIARY, by Paulette Cooper (1982)

Part 16: L. Ron Hubbard Jr.'s Letters My 1997 editorial comments are enclosed in [[double square brackets]]. Also, I have added some paragraph breaks.

***

He [[L. Ron Hubbard Jr., aka Nibs]] showed Roy [[Wallis, author of "The Road to Total Freedom"]] two letters which made it appear that Scientology had rejected a scheme to frame me, and that he had then gone to his father and offered to do anything to get back in his good graces.

He told Roy that he hadn't mailed the letter to his father but Nibs may have gone off on his own, since he also told Roy that he had received a house, a business and cash -- in late May, which was when I was indicted and arrested.(1)

Roy went to the government with the letters and an affidavit and the government began to back down from the case.(2)

[[Footnotes:]]

(1) The first letter was from DG [[Deputy Guardian]] Bob Thomas, then head of dirty tricks in California for Scientology, and, incidentally, the boss of Terry Milner (who's [[sic]] name appears in the Washington documents about framing me).

In this letter, dated November 3rd or about a month before the first bomb threat, Bob Thomas rejected Nibs' apparent offer to "pursu[e] the course of double agent entrapment or harassment you propose with regard to certain individuals you have named in your prior communication, vis: Paulette Cooper...."

"Entrap", incidentally is the word Scientology uses for "frame", I learned from their Washington documents about me. Thus, it seemed to me that the Church of Scientology itself specifically did not want me to be framed. [[Or maybe they were just covering their a-- on paper.]]

But the next letter Roy Wallis obtained from Nibs was dated six days later and written to his father, L. Ron Hubbard and Mary Sue. In it, he said he had always been working for them, and that seemed to me to be a good indication that he wasn't, for if he had been, he wouldn't be telling his father that 3 years later.

He did write, however, that "I have a vast fund of information, ability and skill plus a large variety of plans, activities and options which will bring the enemies of the church to their knees once and for all." There was no doubt that the first person to go after would be me. So it looked like he had gone ahead with these plans in order to get in his father's good graces.

(2) We let Gordon know that we were going to call Roy Wallis (an Oxford scholar) and Nibs to the trial, and Nibs is a pretty poor witness since when Scientology either dissuaded or blackmailed him into stopping his attacks, he signed a sworn affidavit recanting his sworn testimony at a 1968 anti-Scientology trial.
