The rest of the story..
At a "gala public event' event in Los Angeles, David Miscavige announced that the Spanish Criminal Case had been dismissed, and bragged that when the prosecutor put his witnesses on the stand "Scientology worked".!
What he was alluding to, I will now describe.
The criminal case was based upon incident that occurred when a civil case was brought by some ex-scientologists to get their money back. Two of the names I knew involved were John Caban, a jeweler, and Pedro Lerma ( no direct relation that I know of ). John would call me from time to time from Spain tell me what was going on. At one time he introduced me to Pedro Lerma during the telephone call.
John told me that during the previous civil trial, scientology had brought so many operatives into Spain that they rented an entire house.
In Spain, there are what are called "The Judicial Police", Judges in Spain can do their own investigations, much like France, and this police force is to assist them and protect them from retributions. During the civil case, the Judicial police bugged this house and recorded everything. This was what prompted the criminal indictment above.
John told me in his last telephone call, in 1995 that scientology had harassed and then bought off, all of those who were complainants in this criminal action, and that he was the last one, and he expressed his lamentations that he did not think he could hold up much longer.
He did not tell me many details, but I knew the pattern, which is to exhaust the plaintiff's through legal harassment, contrived financial hardships and by surveillance and stazi style psychological operations and then offered them a pile of money if they would settle out of court.
This is what they did to us, in RTC vs Lerma. Lawrence Wollersheim describes this as "The carrot and the stick" offer... and for the combined silence of Lawrence, myself and Bob Penny, Scientology was discussing an aggregate payment of 9 to 12 MILLION dollars. We refused.
But in Spain, now alone, John Caban could not take it anymore.
And this is what David Miscavige meant when he told his members that "When the prosecutor brought his witnesses onto the stand - Scientology Worked!"
Please help us, end this threat to democracy.
Support those who refuse to be silenced.
