     Affidavit of a former RTC-Member (edited to protect the source)
     I, ......  do herewith depose and swear:
     1.  ...  The Religious Technology Center, INC, (RTC) is now the
senior governing entity of the International Church of Scientology, the
Church of Scientology of California, and all affiliated organizations
within the U.S., as well as senior governing entity for all foreign
Scientology organizations and the civil associations of Scientology.
     2.  That despite efforts to cloak the fact, the true role of the
Religious Technology Center, Inc.  is that role explained above, and it
holds this managerial position within the matrix of all of the
interrelated organizations of Scientology: The Church of Scientology
International, Inc., The Church of Scientology of California, Inc., The
Church of Spiritual Technology, Inc., Authors Services, Inc., Missions
International de Scientology, Inc., Religious Technology Center, Inc.,
Authors Family Trust, Asociacion Civil de Dianetica, Asociacion Civil de
     3.  That these various organizations exist in this manner to
provide an "arm's length" appearance in order to protect the current
board of directors from actual legal culpability for any illegal acts
committed by or through the churches of Scientology or any of their
other affiliated organizations, as well as to confuse any issues,
investigations or litigation which might expose the illicit actions of
any individual Scientology organization or member thereof.
     4.  I have observed and have certain knowledge of the activities of
RTC and of its finances as well as its manner of incorporation and
related documents.
     5.  That during the period of my employment by the RTC I reported
to David Miscavige, who was at that time Trustee of the corporation.
Miscavige maintains absolute control over all officers and board members
of this corporation, controlling these other members of the board of
directors by fact of his possessing undated, signed resignations of each
member, the holding of which gave and gives him complete control over
each member of the board.
     6.  That also, to my certain knowledge, David Miscavige conceived,
planned and ordered the implementation of the basic strategic and
tactical actions of the church against those whom he considered to be
causing legal or public relations conflicts against any church or
against his personal and absolute control of Scientology.  He also
ordered the allocation of and made available funding for the financing
of these actions, which included the declaring of those whom he
considered to be his "enemies" as Suppressive Persons, the
implementation of the policies known as "Fair Game" against these
persons once so declared, the infiltration of private and governmental
environments which he deemed hostile to his absolute control over
Scientology, the organization of vigilante groups within the
organizations of Scientology to be used against those individuals whom
he deemed to be his enemies.
     7.  That following Miscaviges' orders, I transferred monies to
Spain, and witnessed briefings by Miscavige to Heber Jentszch, who was
in fact the "puppet" president of the church, but who actually is a
camouflage for Miscavige, concerning covert operations taking place in
Spain against former Scientologists and concerning false testimony and
concerning the attempt to offset a rumored investigation by the spanish
authorities into the activities of Scientology in Spain, the very
investigation which resulted in the surprise arrest of Jentszch himself
in November of 1988.  These operations included orders for
investigations by the private detectives employed by the Scientology
organizations to obtain information by any means possible to incarcerate
the leaders of a reform movement ((Reform Movement = Independent Field))
who had not been silenced previously by Miscavige's policies and
declarations, with the express intent of obtaining their incarceration.
     8.  That during this same period and as part of these same
operations, a plan was formulated to destroy the reform movement in
europe by completely eliminating the leaders of this reform movement,
William Robertson and others, by any means possible.  ((William
Robertson = Captain Bill Robertson, died 1992)) This included the
infiltration of the reform group in Spain by covert agents of RTC, Kurt
Weiland and William Knight, continued investigation and harassment by
detectives employed by the scientology organizations in Spain and by
recruiting others who would help to splinter the reform movement and to
render it ineffective.
     9.  That additional orders were given to institute any action
necessary including false denunciations, assaults by covert agents
apparently in bad standing with the church, to infiltrate, offset and
attack those leaders of the reform movement who were thought to be
responsible for reporting Scientology activities to the spanish
authorities and undermining Miscavige's intentions.
     10.  That the policies known as "Fair Game" are, as described in
the writings of L.  Ron Hubbard, ethics policies, and other
organizational policies are in fact continued as originally written by
Hubbard, and that it is the purpose of the RTC to see that all of his
policies are followed exactly as intended.  It was common knowledge that
the "Cancellation of Fair Game" referred only to the use of the term,
since it had obtained bad public relations for Scientology, and that the
same tactics and actions which referred to those so-called Suppressive
Persons were and are continued in effect.
     11.  That the organization known as the Guardian's Office, while
apparently abandoned, in fact was moved from the position as a separate
organization or network, and incorporated within the organizational
structure of Scientology, and all of the purposes and most of the
Guardian personnel have remained the same.  Again, the purpose of these
changes were to obtain complete control by Miscavige over all
Scientology organizations, and to obtain a more favorable image after
Hubbard's wife was found guilty of crimes as head of the Guardian's
     12.  Since my departure from the church I have been repeatedly
threatened and harassed by members of Scientology, and we are now in
fear for our safety.
     Many of the statements made above contain information which has
been testified to by others and/or are matters of public record within
other areas of litigation within the United States.
     I swear under penalty of perjury under the laws of the state of
Texas that the contents of this affidavit are true to the best of my
knowledge and recollection.
