    Mais qui a tué la principale du collège?
    En 1993, le corps de Denise Descaves, 55 ans, principale d'un collège de la banlieue de Troyes est retrouvé dans son bureau, un coupe-papier planté en plein coeur et le fil du téléphone enroulé autour du cou.

    I wonder if they found new information about this. Some background here:

    "Is Scientology above the law?" (1999)
    Scientology - Above the law?

    It just so happened that just enough (not more not less) documents disappeared to allow the Scientology attorney to file for a dismissal of the case (if no new information is added to a case for at least 3 years, the case is considered 'extinct' or something IANAL.) Ultimately the plaintiffs' lawyers were able to prove that filings had occurred. The circumstances surrounding the disappearance of those documents were highly unusual.

    Wow. Documents disappear from a court case against the cult? That's a new one.

    /sarcasm.

    This cult can't fall soon enough.

    L'émission était bien faite, dans mon souvenir, mais ce sujet n'était qu'un sujet parmi d'autres (le premier, sauf erreur).

    A voir si la nouvelle émission apporte des éléments nouveaux.
    Merci d'avance.

    Poulpe Fiction ; Thétan bas (épisode x)

    Vous aimez les puzzles ?

    Intéressante l'emission d'hier soir sur W9
    Comme cela, ceux qui ne le savaient pas auront découvert que les scientos s'autorisent de pénétrer dans les édifices gouvernementaux, publics... afin de subtiliser les documents compromettants. (vraiment des petits gars bien sous tous rapports, les disciples du dingue...)
    Les mêmes auront découverts l'OSA, les "services secrets" de la secte (des baltringues de première, croyez moi !)
    Savoureux de voir l'évolution de l'image de Danièle G. au cours du temps ; des années 90, en passant par 2002, jusqu'à juin 2009 (et oui, le temps passe et "on" est toujours rattrappé par son passé)
    Elle a l'air moins épanouie ; il faudrait peut-être lever le pied sur le sauna, faire son exament de conscience et envisagé la retraite. Gageons qu'elle sera bien accueillie en Floride, à Clearwater, ville vérolée jusqu'à l'os. Surtout après un plantage somptueux en France ; RPF à gogo en prévision....)

    À propos de la cote d'écoute de cette émission:

  29. auchraw Member

    Re: Poulpe Fiction ; Thétan bas (épisode x)

    Another try.

    Interesting program yesterday evening on W9
    Those who did not already know will have learned that scientologists are encouraged to penetrate government and public offices in order to steal documents compromising the cult (nice little guys, real nutcases). These people will also have discovered OSA, the secret police of the cult (first-class baltringues, believe me).

    It was good to see how Danièle G. has changed with the passage of time, through the 90s, then from 2002 to June 2009. Yes, time passes and one's past catches up with one. She looks less relaxed; she should perhaps get out of the sauna, examine her conscience and think about retirement. We may imagine that she would be given a warm welcome in Florida at Clearwater, a town rotten to its marrow. Above all after a plantage somptueux in France ; we predict RPF à gogo....

    Scientology: the mystery of the missing files
    Part 2 - Draft

    00:00 Voiceover : This affair makes a lot of noise, as everybody wonders how Danièle Gounord managed to obtain this VIP seat.
    00:08 Journalist : Is it easy to obtain such a seat ?
    00:10 XXX: No. Obtaining a place in the public area is easy, but not in the VIP area. There is no reason that anybody seats there, but as a member of government’s explicit guest.
    00:28 Voiceover: The National assembly investigated, in vain. We might never know how Danièle Gounord received the invitation. We asked the scientology’s spokesperson to explain this. Her answer is at least sibyllic.
    00:43 Danièle Gounord, church of scientology’s spokesperson: When I was there, I did not notice it was the ministerial lodge. I just thought I had a nice view. I had a nice view and I enjoyed it.
    00:56 At the National assembly, they do not find it funny.
    00:59 To bad for them. I found it funny, very funny. To be honest, it was due to chance. Somebody gave this seat to somebody who gave it to somebody who gave it to me. End of the story.
    01:18 Jean-Pierre Brard, Congressman, author of a report about cults : I do not believe in the story looking like a Christmas tale of a parliament staff member asking for a seat and giving it to the cousin of Jules’ aunt and finally Danièle Gounord get the invitation from the holy spirit’s operation.
    01:41 Voiceover: This very day, thanks to Danièle Gounord, scientology made an incredible show of its strength and power.
    00:00 XXX: scientology has the organizational skills and the power to do – I would say - almost what it wants…
    01:59 Brard: … and to show it can be somewhere whenever it wants to. For that, I trust its know-how and its secret services to get what was needed when it was needed.
    02:12 This episode at the parliament will reopen an old debate: Is scientology a cult that infiltrated the State at all levels? The disappearance of a part of an ongoing prosecution case within the court building contributes to this hypothesis.
    02:34 THE PHANTOM OF THE COURT BUILDING
    02:41 Voiceover : Court building, Paris. On this floor, the corridor that leads to the prosecutors’ offices is closely monitored by the gendarmes. Nobody can imagine that the files of an ongoing case will vanish.
    03:00 Faubert : There is another problem. Something extraordinary, something that never happens - but with scientology it happens – a part of the folders disappear.
    03:05 Voiceover : Judge Marie-Paule Morracchini is suspected. Everybody wonders how this judge could lose or be stolen a part of a case folders. Her record is perfect and her reputation is not to be a dilettante.
    03:24 Nicolay Fakiroff, ex-members’ attorney : She is a competent judge, not known to be negligent or intellectually dishonest.
    03:33 Voiceover : Nevertheless, this lady above suspicion will be at the heart of a judiciary scandal. It begins in 1989. Marie-Paule Morracchini inherits the scientology case. As requested by the procedure, she works in close collaboration with specialized police officers. Their work is exemplary.
    03:55 Jean-Michel Pesenti, ex-members’ attorney : These investigators know their job and do it to the full: searches, witnesses and suspects questioning, victims interviewing…
    04:09 Voiceover: In 1993, after 4 years of inquiries, Inspector Biagiotti sends his report to the prosecutor. There is no doubt in his mind: the church of scientology should be tried. “The church of scientology could be charged with money extortion and illegal practice of medicine offenses”.
    04:30 Pesenti: Inspector Biagiotti’s report is crystal clear: for him, there is enough evidence to charge the suspects and send them to a court.
    04:42 Voiceover: But the prosecutor has a different opinion. Against all odds, Marie-Paule Morracchini will not follow the police report. She decides that scientology will not face a trial. This decision will surprise all those following the case.
    05:03 Faubert: Why isn’t the case going a court? Why does Marie-Paule Morracchini keep the folders by herself?
    05:10 Pesenti: The case is solid and classical for financial extortion and fraud. I cannot see why a prosecutor could have even the slightest doubt about it.
    05:21 Voiceover: Our questions for Marie-Paule Morracchini are answered by her lawyer. She explains why she did not follow the police officers’ opinion.
    05:31 Marie-Alex Canu-Bernard, Marie-Paule Morracchini’s lawyer: The fact that a police officer thinks that there is a fraud does not imply that this is true. As a lawyer, as a prosecutor, she thinks that the case is not that solid in juridical terms. It is her assessment duty, under her responsibility.
    05:49 Voiceover: Marie-Paule Morracchini considers that there is not enough evidence. That is her right. But why did not she close the case that would allow the cult to avoid a trial?
    06:04 Canu-Bernard: What is best? To close the case quickly - so that the victims never get their money back - or to wait and let the parties discuss, the victims have their money back and then close the case?
    06:26 Voiceover: Marie-Paule Morracchini knows that scientology is desperate to reach an agreement with the plaintiffs. That is the case for Julia and Daniel, who are ex-members. Both are contacted by the cult that tries to get them abandoning their complaints in exchange of money.
    06:46 Daniel, ex-member: I receive from scientology a transaction proposal.
    06:49 Journalist: Such as?
    06:50 Daniel: They say they are ready, but it has to be done quickly. They will give the money I spent in scientology back.
    06:59 Julia Darcondo: I was invited to meet them in a small café. She said that it was OK and that we will sort it out.
    07:06 Voiceover: scientology is ready to spend a lot of money: at the time, 500,000 French francs (76,200 euros) for Julia, and almost 200,000 francs (29,100 euros) for Daniel, if both abandon their complaint.
    07:15 Darcondo: They were to give me the text to send to the prosecutor.
    07:21 Daniel: With the agreement, there is a letter model to be copied in a handwritten letter to the prosecutor.
    07:30 Voiceover: That is the letter the plaintiffs sent to Marie-Paule Morracchini when an agreement is reached.
    07:40 Voiceover: I inform you that I solved the misunderstanding that existed between the church of scientology and me. I withdraw from any procedure against it and abandon my complaint.
    07:55 Voiceover: Julia and Daniel refused to sign this letter. During this period, Marie-Paule Morracchini receives tens of letters from ex-members who abandon their complaint. The case gets empty and there will be soon no reason anymore to go on with it. Apparently, she might have promoted these transactions.
    08:22 Didier Lerouge, ex-member: She asked me, in her office, whether I would abandon my complaint in the case scientology gave me back 500,000 French francs (76,200 euros). I agreed, but made it clear that I would testify and say that scientologists are crooks.
    08:36 Voiceover: For the plaintiffs’ attorneys, Marie-Paule Morracchini went beyond her role as a prosecutor.
    08:43 Jean-Michel Pesenti, ex-members’ attorney : The role of a prosecutor never is and never was to intervene in the transactions, to favor them or to say to a victim that it would be better to take the money as it would be quicker and less risky financially. Scientology negotiates with the plaintiffs and the prosecutor let it happen. Therefore the prosecution is at a standstill. Many of Marie-Paule Morracchini’s colleagues are finger-pointing her behavior and her reputation takes a huge blow when an incident occurs. On October 12th 1998, one and a half volume out of the ten that contains the case disappears.
    09:32 Serge Faubert, author of “A cult at the heart of the republic”: It is conceivable to lose a volume – a set of sheets strapped together – that falls behind a radiator or remains at the top of a cabinet. But losing half a volume means that sheets were taken out of the pile. Taking sheets out of the bundle imply a voluntary intervention to open it and close it again. So I remain skeptic about the accidental nature of this disappearance.
    10:08 Nicolay Fakiroff, ex-members’ attorney : It seems clear that this disappearance is the result of a malevolent action, a voluntary malice.
    10:20 Voiceover: Immediately, Marie-Paule Morracchini becomes the center of attention. Her lack of rigor is questioned and an internal investigation is initiated. Politicians get involved and Elisabeth Guigou - in charge of the Minister of Justice at the time - has to intervene before the National assembly.
    10:46 Elisabeth Guigou, 22.06.2000: I requested an internal investigation from the General inspectorate of the judiciary services. Its conclusion is that this disappearance was most likely due to a malevolent action. I will decide rapidly about possible disciplinary measures.
    11:05 Voiceover: What was inside the missing files ? Who had an interest in stealing them ? These questions remained unanswered. Suspected, Marie-Paule Morracchini is finally declared innocent by her peers.
    11:26 TV anchor: High magistracy council proves judge Marie-Paule Morracchini innocent.
    11:32 Marie-Paule Morracchini: It is the end of a nightmare. It is a clear decision saying that I made no mistake justifying disciplinary measures.
    11:41 Voiceover: The judge comes out clean, but suspicion of theft within the court building remains. Everybody wonders who benefits from the crime, as the disappearance of a part of a case compromises the probability of a trial. This would please the church of scientology,
    12:32 Olivier Morice, ex-members’ attorney: Who benefits from this malfunctioning ? Scientologists do. It is a known fact that scientology infiltrates public authorities, using any possible mean to stop judiciary procedures.
    12:40 Suspected, scientology always said it has nothing to do with the missing files. But a police officer says he is convinced of the contrary. For the first time, he explains the more than dubious methods that might be used by the cult, as described in a document we obtained called “The strike”.
    12:51 Police officer: “The strike” has been written to teach scientologists how to become a burglar.
    13:00 Voiceover: This document mentions “a walk in government buildings”, specifying that “you should have a story already made up that will be plausible should you be asked what you are doing”.
    13:23 Police officer: “The strike” explains how to gain access to a building, to the targeted offices within this building and how to retrieve the information
    13:35 Voiceover: This 5-page document looks like the perfect burglar manual and explains for instance how to make compromising files disappear. Everything is planned: “anything that protects the agent”, like “wearing squeakless shoes” and “carrying a large purse or attaché” in order to take “the target info” away so that “he is not questioned about its content”. Nothing is left to chance. To be successful, the agent must be extremely cautious: “You should know guards making security rounds, locked cabinets, maintenance personnel working after working hours, close circuit TV cameras, and alarm systems”. According to our sources, “The strike” is still in effect to this day. This document shows that scientology is one of the best organized cults, but it was never proved that a scientologist stole the files.
    15:05 Voiceover: In May 2003, the case against scientology about the missing files is dismissed. This judiciary enigma will remain unsolved. In November 2005, the French State has to pay 6,000 euros to scientologists as damages for judiciary malfunctioning.
    15:32 Faubert: The gods of scientology have to exist, because, frankly, scientology has unexpected luck with justice.
    15:48 Voiceover: This luck might change, as a new episode started May 25th 2009. A new trial begins against six high-ranking scientologists, based on two ex-members complaints, for organized fraud. Some of scientology’s highest officers were fled in.
    16:12 Fabio Amicarelli, head of the church of scientology in Europe: This is an inquisition, not a trial. We are back to Torquemada’s time. They intend to destroy freedom of thought of the French people. It is not about scientology. This is what happens now.
    16:31 Voiceover: This trial is taken very seriously by scientology, as it is also in trial as an entity. If condemned, the existing entities could be banned. The decision will be announced on October 27th.
    16:46 Journalist: That is the docu…

    Re: "Le mystère des dossiers disparus"

    Scientology: the mystery of the missing files
    Part 2 - Draft
    00:00 Journalist: That is the documentary prepared by Valérie Montmartin. We have two guests. Good evening. Alain Stoffen, you are a scientology ex-member. You telle your experience there in a book just published by the Editions privées, “Voyage at the heart of scientology”. Thank you for being here. At your side, Georges Fenech. Good evening. You are the president of the Miviludes (Inter-ministerial mission on vigilance and action against sectarian excesses). You are a former congressman, a former prosecutor. Thanks for being here too. First question: does scientology really faces a ban?
    00:31 Georges Fenech, Miviludes president: Yes. The prosecution requested it. The judges are not bound by the prosecution’s request, but it is a real sword of Damocles above its head.
    00:47 Journalist: So scientology could not exist anymore… in juridical terms?
    00:51 Fenech: That a different issue. Scientology is not a single entity, but many dianetics centers in various cities, each being a legal entity. If you ban the one in Paris, it won’t affect the ones in Lyon, Marseilles, Angers, Saint-Etienne…
    01:15 Journalist: So entities get banned, not scientology in itself? Not the church.
    01:19 Fenech: We would be in a strange situation, in case of a ban, in which one could not practice scientology in Paris, but could do so everywhere else.
    01:34 Journalist: Is a ban of scientology as a whole conceivable?
    01:39 Fenech: Yes, in my opinion, but that would be a political decision, not a judiciary one. It would require a general measure decided by the Minister of justice…
    01:52 Journalist: It would arise many issues about the freedom of thought. It would affect not only scientology but also similar organizations considered as cults. Anyway, we will talk a lot about these issues in the near future. After the first decision in October, it is very likely that the two appeal procedures will follow. Then there is Alain Stoffen’s case and a third one on its way, just to mention the cases in Paris. This means at least a year to think-about the problems the church of scientology generates, and this might be a good thing. A year to consider, with the help of the media – if scientology let them do their job – whether scientology is a legitimate way to elevate oneself spiritually or a bunch of crooks - that is the second hypothesis – whose only purpose is to empty their unlucky victims’ bank accounts.
    03:09 Journalist: Despite all these cases, it seems that the church of scientology always manages to avoid the judiciary system.
    03:14 Fenech: You are right, the decision were always rather lenient. Thanks to its financial resources, the best attorneys are hired, all possible appeal procedures are used and there is also a huge propaganda effort. Many people are still attracted to it.
    03:42 Journalist: It is sneaking…
    03:44 Fenech: It can be everywhere…
    03:47 Journalist: … in the field of education, for instance.
    03:49 Fenech: … I will give you an example. This year, a front group of scientology - the citizen’s commission on human rights, with a nice logo that could be confused with the the National consultative commission on human rights – managed to deceive 80 congressmen who questioned the Minister of health about abuses in psychiatry commitment. The Miviludes had to inform the congressmen, the ministry and other authorities about the true nature of CCHR. You can see the extent of their capability to infiltrate and to generate confusion.
    04:38 Journalist: Alain Stoffen, you are an ex-member. How did it start?
    04:46 Alain Stoffen, ex-member, author of “Voyage at the heart of scientology”: Concretely, I started with the communication course, a short one. They have a large panel of introduction courses that are very interesting, very short and inexpensive. They produce results quite rapidly. In 1985, the communication course was billed 350 francs for 2 weeks of courses. At the time, I never heard of scientology in Belgium – where I come from – as it was not very present in the media as it is now.
    05:25 Journalist: What was it about?
    05:27 Stoffen: A lot of practical exercises, quite interesting, that led to an improved self-confidence and an almost complete disappearance of stage fright. As a musician intending to go on stage, this point was very important for me.
    05:42 Journalist: From what you wrote in the book, scientology does not particularly target vulnerable people. They could be looking for personal development techniques, a rather current demand nowadays. Do you agree?
    05:47 Fenech: Every segment of society is concerned, beginning with the major stars just mentioned by Alain Stoffen [sic], Chick Corea, Tom Cruise and John Travolta to name a few. But there are also attorneys, doctors… It is difficult to believe.
    06:20 Journalist: In Alain Stoffen’s case, the music school in which he worked was the recruitment cell. How to identify such cells?
    06:07 Fenech: Most of the time, the entry point is the personality test. A good-looking person goes up to you in the street and proposes a quick test that could help you. It is quick, it is painless and free. But the outcome is always that you have problems, real communication problems and you have to sort them out. Really? How? We have the solution. You take a course, costing 50 euros. You go there, in confidence. Religion and L. Ron Hubbard are never mentioned. It talks about you, your communication problems. You take the course, but it does not work as expected, because the problem is worse than anticipated. So you have to by a course package and the electrometer is introduced. With it, we will be able to go deeper into the problem, in a seemingly scientific way. It is a trap. The bait is the personality test, but the important aspect is what comes afterwards. I was interested to hear Alain Stoffen talk about spirituality. That is unusual, but I allow myself to ask you the following question. Who, around the table and with the possible exception of Alain Stoffen, knows the scientology beliefs?
    08:11 Journalist: I read 2 or 3 times L. Ron Hubbard’s first book and nothing is said about it.
    08:22 Fenech: How is it possible that so many people talk about scientology without defining its doctrine. One might say that this should not be the issue, but at least, out of curiosity, what is the meaning of the purification rundown, the electrometer. What is it supposed to lead to, in spiritual terms? It leads to the revelation made by L. Ron Hubbard who was a successful science-fiction writer. This revelation is not made upfront, because it could kill you. You have to pay between 200,000 and 400,000 euros or dollars to be ready to hear it. The revelation is: 75 million years ago, there was an intergalactic war and an overlord named Xenu loses the war, is frozen along with thetans – around 16 thousand billion people – and packed in a volcano. Using the electrometer, one frees itself from the thetans and acquires self-awareness and the mental capacity – the dianetics side – to control your body. And you become an übermensch. It is a search for the original übermensch from this intergalactic war period, 75 million years ago. This is the spirituality, the doctrine. You pay around 300,000 euros to learn this. That is the problem.
    09:55 Journalist: How long have you been a member?
    10:00 Stoffen: 15 years.
    10:01 Journalist: And why did you leave, in 2001 if I am correct? What was the trigger?
    10:05 Alain Stoffen, ex-member, author of “Voyage at the heart of scientology”: It is due to chance. After an internal mistake, I saw a file I should not have seen, the so-called ethics file. The organization keeps a record on everybody, and this is known by the members. But I thought, and I have been told so, that the record was about spiritual progress…
    10:40 Journalist: You are invited to “confess” in a regular basis…
    10:43 Stoffen: When you work alone, there is a written report, when you work with an auditor, there is a written report. And all the reports are added to your file. That was the content I expected to find there. But what I found is the whole extend of the manipulation imposed on me. At some stage, I disagreed about some courses that had negative impacts and I wrote a letter to one of the highest ethics officers about it. As we were told that there was a fair judicial system in place internally, I expected them to recognize the mistake and to solve the different. But, in fact, a telex arrived, in response to my letter – I found it among the tens of documents included in my file – ordering an illegal confinement and a despicable blackmail to get more money out of me.
    12:00 Journalist: You lodged a complaint. How did the church react?
    12:05 Stoffen: Scientology has a litigious nature and has enormous financial resources. Several complaints were filed against me. There were heinous phone calls and other intimidation tactics known in such a case.
    12:29 Journalist: Georges Fenech, do you know the methods used by the church of scientology, described by Alain Stoffen?
    12:32 Fenech: I do not say “church”. The confusion arises from this. It is an association, according to the 1901 law; it is not a church in juridical terms. Having said that, they are free to believe what they want. I rather prefer to use “scientology organization”. Now back to the methods. They are well known. They might not be as old as the world, but at least as old as L. Ron Hubbard who invented them. Everybody can read what he wrote. Those considered as threats are handled following a program called “black propaganda” by scientology. They master the way to discredit “suppressive people”, as they are called in their jargon. There is a hierarchy of these people, depending on the danger they represent for the organization. There are methods for each level. They are no angels.
    13:41 Journalist: You left this organization 8 years ago. What remains from your time inside?
    13:50 Stoffen: One cannot recover completely, because the reconstruction process is much more difficult than the indoctrination one. The doctrine aims at suppressing critical thinking. When you get out, there are feelings of shame, of guilt and, for many but not me, of fear, as this organization is frightening. So, you leave a prison – as I did –to enter another one, made of all these feelings. One has to regain some critical thinking and take responsibility for what happened. Taking responsibility is necessary to heal and understanding is necessary to take responsibility. It is almost mission impossible. It took me several years. Now, my life is ahead of me, but it leaves scars.
    15:00 Journalist: And, to understand, you wrote this book “Voyage in the heart of scientology” that is just out of press at Editions privées. Alain Stoffen, thank you. Georges Fenech, thank you very much.

    00:00.00-00:03.40 "ENQUÊTES CRIMINELLES" September 2, 2009

    Sidonie Bonnec
    Our second investigation this evening focuses on Scientology.
    00:03.44-00:07.17 Last June, this organization was on trial for fraud,
    00:07.21-00:08.95 not for the first time in its history,
    00:08.99-00:11.62 but this case could conclusively seal the fate
    00:11.68-00:13.77 of this American sect in France.
    00:13.81-00:15.96 We will review the turbulent relations
    00:16.00-00:18.37 between Scientology and the French justice system,
    00:18.41-00:21.15 beginning with the affair of the missing files
    00:21.19-00:22.20 concerning the sect.
    News anchorman, October 14, 1998
    00:29.54-00:30.67 At the Palais de justice in Paris,
    00:30.72-00:34.16 part of a case file on the Church of Scientology
    00:34.20-00:35.22 has disappeared.
    Jean-Michel Pesenti
    00:43.70-00:45.92 3 and a half years of procedures vanished into thin air.
    Julia Darcondo
    00:52.98-00:56.74 Justice in my country is like Swiss cheese: full of holes.
    Georges Fenech
    00:56.78-01:00.14 This case is the epitome of a judicial mess.
    01:00.18-01:02.61 I would even call it a judicial disaster.
    Serge Faubert
    01:09.25-01:11.98 There is never any case involving the Church of Scientology
    01:12.03-01:14.70 that unfolds without spectacular twists and turns.
    Jean-Michel Pesenti
    01:16.26-01:19.21 When one volume and a half of the case file disappears,
    01:19.26-01:22.16 during an investigation, who profits?
    Narrator
    01:23.21-01:25.52 This report by "Enquêtes criminelles" will tell you how,
    01:25.56-01:27.50 at the Palais de justice in Paris,
    01:27.54-01:30.49 one of the best-guarded buildings in the Republic,
    01:30.53-01:32.79 part of the case file in a pre-trial investigation
    01:32.83-01:34.49 could have vanished.
    01:35.14-01:37.17 And you will understand who stood to benefit
    01:37.22-01:39.21 by having these documents disappear.

    01:42.58-01:46.78 THE SECT CAUGHT IN A TRAP

    Narrator
    01:52.47-01:54.46 This story begins in the early 1980's.
    01:55.19-01:57.11 At that time, Scientology,
    01:57.15-01:58.93 established throughout the world,
    01:58.97-02:00.65 operated with total impunity.
    02:01.95-02:03.07 This was especially true in France,
    02:03.11-02:04.19 where the Scientology movement
    02:04.23-02:07.32 was not yet considered a dangerous sect.
    Serge Faubert
    02:08.95-02:10.59 The Church of Scientology remains
    02:10.63-02:12.53 a poorly-known organization.
    02:12.63-02:14.96 It's an American organization.
    02:15.00-02:15.83 It's foreign.
    02:15.87-02:17.59 People don't really know what it's about
    02:17.63-02:18.49 or how it operates
    02:18.53-02:20.79 and people don't take it very seriously.
    Narrator
    02:21.75-02:24.57 But this impunity did not last.
    02:25.87-02:29.06 In 1983, former followers
    02:29.10-02:32.13 who concluded that they had been swindled by the sect
    02:32.15-02:33.30 filed complaints.
    02:34.44-02:36.28 The sums were considerable.
    02:37.13-02:40.53 At that time: several hundred thousand francs per victim.
    Didier Lerouge
    02:43.43-02:46.75 In one year, I spent about 150,000 francs.
    Julia Darcondo
    02:46.79-02:49.68 The value of what I left behind is 350,000 francs.
    Daniel
    02:49.76-02:51.83 I went into debt, I took out a loan.
    02:51.87-02:53.93 I went all the way to being ruined financially.
    Narrator
    02:54.95-02:57.86 At first, the justice system did not take into account
    02:57.90-02:59.82 the testimony of these former followers.
    03:00.91-03:03.19 In spite of this, what they told the magistrate
    03:03.23-03:06.36 showed that Scientology has all the characteristics of a sect.
    03:07.14-03:08.86 First characteristic:
    03:08.90-03:11.03 It sells happiness to the people it recruits.
    03:11.79-03:15.33 For this, it offers a turn-key solution: Dianetics.
    Scientology video
    03:16.73-03:17.90 Scientology video: "Dianetics will take you"
    03:17.94-03:19.84 "on the most exciting adventure of your life:"
    03:20.41-03:21.48 "the adventure of yourself."
    03:22.03-03:24.97 "Man is fundamentally good, creative, and constructive."
    03:25.64-03:27.56 "Dianetics is the first study of the mind"
    03:27.58-03:29.34 "that is easy to understand and to learn,"
    03:29.38-03:31.04 "and that anyone can apply."
    Narrator
    03:31.98-03:32.83 Narrator: Dianetics,
    03:32.87-03:35.86 a scientific term which, in reality,
    03:35.92-03:38.20 boils down to pseudo-sessions of psychotherapy,
    03:39.42-03:41.00 expensively-paid consultations
    03:41.04-03:43.25 which are supposed to free followers
    03:43.29-03:44.86 from their existential anxiety.
    Serge Faubert
    03:46.98-03:49.33 Scientology possesses absolute certainty
    03:49.37-03:50.69 that it has found the means
    03:50.73-03:53.31 to free humanity from its ills.
    03:53.74-03:55.25 It has a therapy which cures everything.
    Narrator
    03:55.99-03:59.40 The man who marketed this theory was Ron Hubbard.
    04:15.92-04:19.52 Originally, Ron Hubbard was a science fiction writer.
    04:19.96-04:21.29 His books sold well.
    04:21.70-04:24.02 He was what was called a "bestselling author".
    04:25.09-04:28.72 But in 1950, he had an even more lucrative idea:
    04:29.64-04:31.68 to become the savior of a world in perdition.
    04:45.63-04:46.81 In the space of a few years,
    04:46.85-04:49.29 Ron Hubbard became a full-fledged guru.
    04:51.02-04:52.65 Everything he said, everything he wrote,
    04:52.66-04:53.90 was Gospel.
    Didier Lerouge
    04:56.36-04:58.30 We don't think, we don't see
    04:58.34-05:02.14 we don't live, without Ron Hubbard.
    Narrator
    05:03.02-05:06.91 With Dianetics, Ron Hubbard appeared to have struck gold.
    05:07.84-05:09.94 Soon, he was living like a billionaire,
    05:09.98-05:12.77 thanks entirely to the money provided by his members.
    05:13.44-05:15.25 The system was perfectly primed.
    05:15.53-05:18.41 Books, auditing sessions, and compulsory training, ...
    05:18.45-05:19.78 everything is designed
    05:19.82-05:22.63 to force followers to spend even more money.
    Jean-Pierre Brard
    05:23.08-05:27.97 Scientology hooks you by trying to make you believe
    05:28.02-05:33.03 that you really have a tremendous potential,
    05:33.07-05:34.55 that it's not being fulfilled,
    05:34.63-05:36.78 and that Scientology will help you to develop it.
    05:36.82-05:39.19 What the sect doesn't tell you at the beginning
    05:39.23-05:43.64 is that it will put your finances through the wringer for this.
    05:43.68-05:46.37 Of course, if you are receiving unemployment benefits
    05:46.40-05:48.55 or work at the minimum wage, you can rest assured.
    05:48.59-05:51.06 You are of no interest to Scientology.
    Narrator
    05:51.58-05:53.21 In 1989,
    05:53.24-05:56.57 the French justice system attacked the sect head-on.
    05:56.97-06:00.59 New complaints in Paris, Lyon, and Marseille
    06:00.95-06:02.58 triggered, for the first time,
    06:02.62-06:06.43 one of the most consequential anti-sect operations.
    06:06.47-06:09.95 Every Church of Scientology location was searched,
    06:10.00-06:13.35 most of the sect's leaders were questioned,
    06:13.39-06:15.27 and 3 investigations were launched.
    Serge Faubert
    06:16.96-06:19.15 This was the justice system's first offensive
    06:19.19-06:20.43 against the Church of Scientology.
    06:20.47-06:23.19 What did this offensive mean?
    06:23.23-06:26.20 Quite simply: no more impunity.
    06:26.24-06:29.86 Now we will put a stop to
    06:29.90-06:33.74 certain abuses and behaviors of the Church of Scientology.
    Alain Gest
    06:33.78-06:35.78 For a very long time, there was
    06:35.84-06:39.70 not only practically no legal procedure brought against it,
    06:39.77-06:43.71 but, in particular, there were no court rulings against it.
    06:43.75-06:46.02 Since the moment when some began to appear,
    06:46.06-06:47.66 any legal challenge,
    06:47.70-06:50.49 with all the resulting media attention,
    06:50.53-06:53.57 has been a problem that it wants to avoid absolutely.
    Narrator
    06:54.26-06:55.55 For the first time,
    06:55.59-06:58.81 the Church of Scientology was in the sights of the justice system.
    07:02.74-07:05.94 Under attack, Ron Hubbard's church counter-attacked,
    07:05.98-07:08.35 using its greatest assets.
    07:08.92-07:12.43 It did not hesitate to put on stage its most famous followers.
    07:13.42-07:14.99 Actor Tom Cruise
    07:15.35-07:18.13 and, especially, John Travolta
    07:18.47-07:19.50 played the role of spokespersons.
    07:24.61-07:28.54 In France, actor Xavier Deluc speaks out for Ron Hubbard.
    07:28.66-07:30.80 He is a Scientologist and does not hide it.
    TV entertainment show
    07:31.48-07:33.97 Man: Xavier Deluc is here today. Woman: Yes, I noticed.
    07:34.49-07:36.59 In a few moments, we will be talking about his record,
    07:36.62-07:37.93 which is called "The Blue Planet" [1989].
    07:37.97-07:38.98 Here's a sample.
    07:39.02-07:40.18 The song is "Jonnie Good Boy".
    07:40.23-07:41.69 He's a hero in the novels --
    07:41.72-07:42.79 well, one of the novels of Ron Hubbard
    07:42.84-07:45.24 that many of us are fond of.
    Xavier Deluc song video
    07:46.62-07:49.80 Song: He wants peace, only peace,
    07:49.84-07:53.86 nothing but peace, please, peace.
    Narrator
    07:54.93-07:56.35 To burnish its image,
    07:56.39-07:58.09 Scientology does not hesitate
    07:58.13-08:01.19 to stage regular displays of its omnipotence for the world to see.
    08:02.73-08:05.75 For example, this ceremony in the year 2000.
    Roger Gonnet
    08:06.83-08:09.78 This meeting was probably the biggest meeting they'd ever had.
    08:09.82-08:12.11 There were probably 11 or 12 thousand people.
    Narrator
    08:12.71-08:14.84 This photograph, which was posted on the Internet,
    08:15.12-08:17.00 is, in reality, a doctored photograph.
    08:17.59-08:18.38 Here's how.
    Roger Gonnet
    08:18.42-08:20.64 All kinds of Scientologists were "cloned",
    08:22.74-08:23.95 in the sense that you could see
    08:23.99-08:26.89 a woman in a certain dress copied here,
    08:26.98-08:31.20 or a man with a receding hairline copied there.
    08:46.79-08:48.19 Exaggeration is customary.
    08:48.51-08:50.41 The goal is to appear much more powerful,
    08:50.45-08:51.48 much more strong.
    08:51.60-08:54.24 The ends, in Scientology, justify the means.
    Narrator
    08:55.52-08:57.43 This photograph is not the only example
    08:57.47-08:59.66 of the methods used by Scientology
    08:59.70-09:01.41 when it feels under attack.
    09:02.50-09:05.97 To counter the mounting offensive on the part of judges,
    09:06.53-09:10.58 the sect developed a particularly effective strategy.

    09:19.16-09:21.99 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

    Narrator
    09:28.35-09:32.35 Faced with involvement in a growing number of legal cases,
    09:32.39-09:35.01 the Church of Scientology struck back.
    09:35.05-09:37.34 Its tactics are hard.
    09:37.69-09:39.86 They consist of systematically working against
    09:39.90-09:43.26 all persons whom it labels as enemies.
    Georges Fenech
    09:44.14-09:46.25 The Church of Scientology has the capability
    09:46.29-09:50.13 to retaliate against a declared opponent.
    09:50.24-09:52.14 This could be a journalist, a magistrate,
    09:52.18-09:54.55 a policeman, an association.
    09:54.59-09:57.07 An extraordinary capacity to do harm.
    Alain Gest
    09:57.27-10:00.46 As soon as you show interest in its workings
    10:00.52-10:01.68 and begin to annoy it,
    10:01.72-10:03.89 it resorts to pressure tactics.
    Narrator
    10:04.62-10:06.78 To get rid of his detractors,
    10:07.03-10:11.09 Ron Hubbard himself established a method of intimidation.
    Roger Gonnet
    10:13.77-10:16.40 What Hubbard understood was that the best defense
    10:16.45-10:18.71 was simply to attack others.
    Serge Faubert
    10:18.75-10:23.03 There are texts in Scientology which essentially teach
    10:23.04-10:25.61 that practically everything and anything can be done
    10:25.63-10:27.30 to the adversaries of the Church of Scientology.
    Narrator
    10:28.21-10:30.25 Written proof can be found in this bulletin
    10:30.28-10:33.33 which comes from the sect and which any follower can obtain.
    10:34.31-10:39.01 The document says: "Never defend, always attack."
    10:40.83-10:44.84 "The aim of this technique is to damage a person's reputation."
    10:47.25-10:50.63 "It is then possible to destroy the person."
    10:55.83-10:56.57 In France,
    10:56.61-10:59.06 Jean-Marie Abgrall, medical psychiatrist,
    10:59.10-11:00.79 was a direct victim
    11:00.83-11:03.16 of Scientology's intimidation methods.
    11:04.31-11:08.61 In 1990, he was mandated by the justice system to determine
    11:08.64-11:12.66 the psychological impact of the sect on its followers.
    Jean-Marie Abgrall
    11:13.98-11:15.70 From the outset, I became the opponent.
    11:15.74-11:17.81 I became the bête noire,
    11:17.86-11:18.86 an animal that had to be put down.
    Serge Faubert
    11:19.02-11:21.68 Jean-Marie Abgrall is indeed a thorn in their side,
    11:22.24-11:24.15 because Jean-Marie Abgrall wrote a report
    11:24.20-11:26.15 that was quite damning for the Church of Scientology.
    11:26.66-11:28.69 It showed that the mechanisms at work
    11:28.73-11:31.19 are based on mind control
    11:31.28-11:32.59 and are sectarian.
    11:33.32-11:35.38 Obviously, this report was rather troublesome
    11:35.45-11:36.29 for the Church of Scientology,
    11:36.33-11:38.65 so it tried to discredit Abgrall.
    Narrator
    11:41.03-11:43.81 One of Scientology's officials in Paris
    11:43.85-11:45.69 was alleged to have been put in charge
    11:45.73-11:47.91 of the operation targeting Jean-Marie Abgrall.
    11:50.13-11:51.28 She was said to have requested,
    11:51.32-11:53.28 in particular from a young follower in Nice,
    11:53.32-11:55.59 that pressure be brought to bear on the psychiatrist.
    Jean-Marie Abgrall
    12:01.69-12:03.17 I noticed that my mail disappeared.
    12:03.21-12:07.28 I noticed that I was receiving anonymous phone calls.
    12:07.32-12:12.36 I noticed that a wheel on my car had been unbolted.
    12:12.40-12:15.11 My wife received phone calls saying that I was dead.
    12:15.15-12:19.24 My wife received phone calls describing the house,
    12:19.27-12:21.32 the color of the shutters, etc., etc.
    12:21.99-12:23.35 And this is not all.
    12:23.76-12:25.83 The young follower of the sect was also alleged
    12:25.87-12:29.08 to have attempted to soil the psychiatrist's reputation.
    12:33.84-12:35.51 Colleagues were calling me to say,
    12:35.55-12:41.28 "Hey, I received a bizarre call from a guy named ***"
    12:41.32-12:42.65 "and he's collecting information about you."
    12:43.39-12:45.58 The things he was asking for
    12:45.58-12:47.77 had absolutely nothing to do with the practice of medicine.
    12:47.81-12:50.70 He asked them, "Does he have mistresses?"
    12:51.38-12:53.84 "Did he ..."
    12:53.99-12:55.97 "He worked with drug addicts at the Pierrefeu hospital."
    12:56.00-12:57.85 "Was he a former drug addict?"
    12:58.42-13:02.40 Or, bluntly, the caller would begin suggesting to them
    13:02.44-13:03.91 that I accept, for example,
    13:03.95-13:06.35 bribes to influence my professional opinions.
    Narrator
    13:06.98-13:09.55 For months, Jean-Marie Abgrall was harassed.
    13:09.95-13:13.61 In Scientology jargon, this is called "black propaganda".
    Jean-Marie Abgrall
    13:14.54-13:15.87 It's a defamation technique
    13:15.91-13:18.94 which uses all aspects of rumor
    13:18.94-13:21.98 and, let's say, false information.
    13:22.02-13:24.24 Under the pretext of asking for information about someone,
    13:24.28-13:25.54 a person says ...
    13:25.58-13:27.88 -- the classic phrasing is designed to be manipulative --
    13:27.92-13:31.54 "You know, I'm conducting an investigation on so-and-so"
    13:31.60-13:33.38 "because he's suspected of being a pedophile."
    13:33.42-13:35.52 "Could you tell me about this gentleman?"
    13:35.56-13:36.85 "Mind you, we don't have anything on him."
    13:36.89-13:38.18 "We're not sure that he's a pedophile."
    13:38.23-13:39.76 "But we'd still like to find out ..."
    13:39.81-13:42.38 And gradually, this gets amplified, it becomes a rumor,
    13:42.42-13:44.23 and that's what "black propaganda" is.
    Narrator
    13:44.97-13:47.29 In the end, for lack of evidence,
    13:47.53-13:49.11 the courts did not reach a finding
    13:49.11-13:50.70 on the charge of attempted intimidation.
    13:51.72-13:53.64 The follower from Nice simply received
    13:53.68-13:56.02 a 4-month suspended prison sentence
    13:56.38-13:58.35 for having stolen the psychiatrist's mail.
    14:04.88-14:06.88 As for the Scientology official,
    14:07.38-14:10.56 she was at first convicted for having sponsored the operation.
    14:11.28-14:13.67 She was finally acquitted by the Court of Appeal.
    Serge Faubert
    14:16.91-14:19.79 The Church of Scientology said, as was its custom,
    14:19.83-14:25.78 that this was due to over-zealous disciples of Ron Hubbard.
    14:25.82-14:29.85 that they disobeyed instructions, if there were any instructions,
    14:29.89-14:31.64 whatever, that they went too far,
    14:31.66-14:33.88 and that, in any case, they acted on their own initiative.
    Narrator
    14:34.58-14:36.76 And escaping justice at any cost
    14:36.92-14:39.87 is an absolute priority for Scientology.
    14:40.53-14:41.63 To accomplish this,
    14:41.67-14:44.36 the sect is ready to deploy considerable resources.
    Georges Fenech
    14:46.26-14:49.10 Scientology has a great deal of money to spend
    14:49.14-14:51.70 and an armada of lawyers working on procedures,
    14:52.56-14:56.17 to try to prevent trials from reaching completion.
    14:56.86-15:00.44 There is a will, in reality, to escape justice.
    Narrator
    15:01.12-15:02.12 Georges Fenech,
    15:02.16-15:03.93 former investigating judge in Lyon,
    15:03.97-15:05.21 knows what he's talking about.
    15:06.12-15:09.81 In 1990, while he was investigating a fraud case
    15:09.83-15:11.60 involving the Church of Scientology,
    15:12.20-15:14.73 the judge decided to strike hard.
    15:16.29-15:18.67 For the first time, he obtained the incarceration
    15:18.73-15:20.98 of the sect's principal French officials.
    15:21.75-15:24.98 Jean-Jacques Mazier, head of the organization in Lyon,
    15:26.44-15:28.94 Jean-Paul Chapellet, an official in Paris,
    15:29.33-15:30.13 and, especially,
    15:30.17-15:33.46 famous Scientology spokesperson Danièle Gounord.
    15:34.02-15:36.22 All 3 were sent to prison.
    15:38.72-15:41.02 In the United States, the home of Scientology,
    15:41.22-15:43.04 this was a bombshell.
    15:43.08-15:46.54 Scientology's enemy henceforth was Georges Fenech.
    Serge Faubert
    15:46.98-15:51.42 The Church of Scientology called on its Office of Special Affairs.
    15:52.67-15:54.52 The Office of Special Affairs is designed for this,
    15:54.56-15:55.53 to strike hard.
    Narrator
    15:55.57-15:56.87 OSA
    15:56.92-15:58.88 The Office of Special Affairs,
    15:58.88-16:01.67 in actuality, the sect's secret service.
    Serge Faubert
    16:03.81-16:07.21 The Church of Scientology had a major asset
    16:07.26-16:09.08 in this battle against the justice system.
    16:09.08-16:11.84 It had, in the close entourage
    16:11.84-16:14.60 of the President of the Republic at that time,
    16:14.64-16:15.97 François Mitterrand,
    16:16.00-16:22.05 an ally, an agent, an "honorable correspondent".
    16:22.09-16:27.33 It was this agent who helped the Church of Scientology
    16:27.36-16:30.12 to reverse the legal situation.
    Narrator
    16:31.36-16:33.86 As this internal OSA document shows,
    16:34.45-16:36.15 in 1990,
    16:36.55-16:38.08 the Church of Scientology apparently
    16:38.13-16:40.13 instructed one of its agents
    16:40.53-16:42.96 to intervene at the highest levels of the French State.
    16:43.87-16:47.13 For better discretion, he was code-named "F10".
    16:48.02-16:49.80 The goal of the operation he was conducting
    16:49.80-16:51.81 was to discredit Judge Fenech.
    Serge Faubert
    16:53.15-16:54.41 A dossier was passed
    16:54.45-16:57.47 to the entourage of the President of the Republic at that time,
    16:57.50-17:01.57 a dossier explaining that the Church of Scientology
    17:01.61-17:04.41 was the victim of a freelance attack against liberty
    17:04.45-17:06.53 undertaken by an investigating judge,
    17:06.54-17:08.70 namely Judge Fenech in Lyon,
    17:08.74-17:11.20 because he was the Church of Scientology's biggest bête noire
    17:11.24-17:12.25 at that time,
    17:12.30-17:16.10 presenting Judge Fenech as a right-wing magistrate,
    17:16.26-17:19.37 a right-wing extremist,
    17:19.37-17:22.47 whose actions were motivated by an inquisitorial will,
    17:22.71-17:26.69 who attacked the gentle Scientologist lambs.
    Narrator
    17:27.72-17:29.94 In this telex dated July 20, 1990,
    17:30.75-17:33.26 OSA sent to the American headquarters of Scientology
    17:33.33-17:34.36 the following message:
    17:36.25-17:39.40 "IT IS GOING OKAY AND GREEN LIGHT IS GIVEN"
    17:40.41-17:41.45 No one can say
    17:41.49-17:43.71 whether this message was heard at the Élysée Palace,
    17:44.38-17:45.83 but 5 days later,
    17:45.87-17:48.08 the 3 Scientology officials were released.
    Danièle Gounord (July 1990)
    17:48.12-17:49.92 I've just spent 3 weeks in prison
    17:50.44-17:52.73 and my only crime is being a Scientologist.
    17:53.17-17:55.10 I was imprisoned because I am a Scientologist.
    Narrator
    17:55.63-17:58.13 Implicated in several judicial cases,
    17:58.25-18:01.27 Danièle Gounord, the spokesperson for Scientology,
    18:01.30-18:02.49 felt persecuted.
    18:02.51-18:05.43 She soon got her revenge.
    18:06.83-18:09.90 Five years later, at the National Assembly,
    18:10.18-18:12.77 in one of the most monitored buildings in France,
    18:13.32-18:15.72 Danièle Gounord successfully staged a bold feat.
    18:17.02-18:19.36 On February 8,1996,
    18:19.93-18:23.10 the deputies were gathered to hear a report on sects.
    18:23.94-18:25.55 On that day, inside the hemicycle,
    18:25.59-18:29.16 Scientology demonstrated its omnipotence to all of France.
    Philippe Séguin, President of the National Assembly, February 8, 1996
    18:31.40-18:33.28 The next speaker will be Mr. Alain Gest.
    Narrator
    18:33.32-18:35.89 Alain Gest presided over the report on sects.
    Alain Gest
    18:37.02-18:38.62 So I entered the hemicycle,
    18:38.66-18:40.61 I stepped up to the podium.
    18:44.07-18:45.99 And then, what a surprise!
    18:46.61-18:49.16 Facing me, exactly opposite me.
    Alain Gest, February 8, 1996
    18:49.20-18:52.55 President of the Assembly, Ministers, My Dear Colleagues ...
    Alain Gest
    18:52.63-18:58.71 There was a person in the seats reserved for guests of ministers.
    19:01.40-19:02.33 And that person was
    19:02.38-19:03.98 the spokesperson for the Church of Scientology.
    Narrator
    19:05.81-19:07.11 Danièle Gounord,
    19:07.15-19:10.24 seated in the section reserved for guests of ministers.
    19:11.62-19:13.69 Cause for surprise indeed.
    Serge Faubert
    19:18.90-19:22.04 It was quite a coup for the Church of Scientology.
    19:22.36-19:25.01 On the day of the debate on sects at the National Assembly,
    19:25.05-19:26.30 where she was somewhat in the spotlight,
    19:26.34-19:27.02 -- because, at the time,
    19:27.06-19:30.20 she was the incarnation of the sect "par excellence" --
    19:30.70-19:33.05 she appeared in the official gallery.
    Alain Gest
    19:33.52-19:39.49 Of course, if anyone is seated in the public gallery,
    19:39.53-19:42.07 there is absolutely nothing shocking about that.
    19:42.15-19:45.80 What was, from my point of view, a real taunt,
    19:45.92-19:50.12 is that there was only one person in the reserved seats
    19:50.12-19:51.95 and it was the spokesperson for the Church of Scientology.

    Re: "Le mystère des dossiers disparus"

    Good work. Translations need thoroughly review by native-English speaker editors, particularly on capitalization. "Judiciary system" needs to be globally replaced by "judicial system". Stouffen's book should be translated as "Journey to the Heart of Scientology".

    Bien vu. Au fait, c'est Stoffen (;o).
