    Undercover at Narconon Netherlands

    Today Dutch weekly magazine Revu publishes a second article about their undercover operation.

    First article can be found here:

    This second article

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    tells about a visit some journalists made to the Narconon drug rehab in Zuthpen, a city in the Netherlands.

    tl;dr: no real news for us, but an interesting read

    Highlights of the article.

    Visit to Narconon
    1. Reporters pretend that they think about putting their "cocaine-addicted friend" into rehab.
    2. Narconon staff-member Miranda (not her real name) tells the reporters that new clients have to "confess to their crimes" when they enter Narconon. One client said (s)he shot someone. Narconon checked this with the local DA, but he didn't know about such a crime.
    3. Belgian philosopher Pieter Blondeel (who graduated on the Scientology-subject) explains the Zone plan, by which LRH tried to infiltrate into government.
    4. The Zuthpen Narconon building looks like a mess, they are looking for a bigger building in Deventer, a city near Zutphen.
    5. Treatment costs 2.500 euro a month. Reporters count approx. 20 clients, so that would be 50.000 euro a month, or 600.000 euro a year.
    6. Purification rundown (vitamins, sauna) is mentioned.
    7. Again there are files on every client.
    8. Miranda admits there are no psychologists in Narconon. "We have all been trained at the Kopenhagen organization." From Kopenhagen they monthly come to check if all goes well. "Then we get money together.".
    9. Miranda suggests that the reporters apply for a personal grant on behalf of the Dutch AWBZ, which, in short, is a tax on income by which all care for elderly, handicapped and also drug related problems is financed. With that they would be able to pay for the first month in Narconon.
    10. Reporters can only get out after having eaten a plate of custard that is said to contain 3.000 mg of vitamin C against H1N1...

    Other Dutch front-organisations (CHHR-branch, TWTH-branch, Applied Scholastics, Lafayette primary school) are mentioned. CCHR-branch apparantly got money (9.500 euro) from a Dutch lottery.

    Since January 2008 Narconon and Applied Scholastics have tax status "ANBI", which means they don't pay taxes on gifts, and that someone who has given an amount to them can deduct this on income tax. (Remarkably Amsterdam org is NOT an ANBI. TTBOMK: i think however they are exempt of paying Dutch VAT-taxes. )

    Since June 2009 there is a "True Source Scientology Foundation" in Schiedam.

    There are some little consultancy companies, like Improved Conditions, Silhouet Management and Oxford. They use OCA.

    Belgian philosopher Blondeel explains Scientology is an organisation with a clear goal: make money. He mentions HCOPL 9 march 1972, in which A and J are the same: "make money", while K says "make more money" and L says "make other people produce so as to make money" . (I'll leave it to other to find source on this.) Blondeel on this: "Even if you look at Scientology as a religion, one should be free to follow or leave it. Make money on members is the last thing any religion should be occupied with, not to mention that you just cannot get people in so much debt that they are dependent on you for the rest of their lives. "

    Article also mentions OT3 in short.

    • Julia Rijnvis (Dutch OSA) calls Revu "merchants of chaos". She suspects big pharma is behind the articles and confirms ties between Scientology and Narconon / CCHR (NCRM in Dutch).
    • Dutch IRS cannot tell (because of confidentiality) why org does not have, but Narconon, Applied Scholastics and TWTH do have tax-friendly ANBI-status. Spokesperson: "But we do not close our eyes. If there is a good reason, we'll look into it."
    • Spokesperson for Dutch Health Inspectorate tells in the Netherlands everyone can start drug rehab. People can even stop drugs on their own, you don't need always professional therapistst to help you.

    Basically, we need to be able to show where the money goes.

    Thanks for the summary, Trev. Much appreciated.
