All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

August 25, 1993
l'm sending this report to you because Mr. Jaquier has written numerous KR'S [Knowledge Reports], been to the Chaplain, Ethics, Wise to no avail. He can not get any results from these terminals and he can not pursue these cycles [actions] on regular legal lines because all the terminals are Scientologist.
My name is Louise Cournoyer and I'm translating this report for Albert Jaquier from French to English (which I've included at the end of this write up the original write-up was written for the Edwin Baer and Hans Peter Tschupp) For the purpose of clarity I've shortened it and only gave the specifics on each cycle. In PT [present time i.e. currently] Mr. Jaquier is owed by Scientologist the approximate sum of $650,000. this is without counting the purchase of homes or other small cycles that he did in other to help the 4th Dynamic.
START OF MR. JAQUIER REPORT
Between 1988 and 1990 I was brought in to the IAS office at Flag by Hans Peter Tschupp and Edwin Bear.
It was the purchase of 3 E-Meters, Gold, Silver and Bronze from Hanias Markos ( a friend of Hans Peter Tschupp) for the sum of $35,000.00 so he could finish paying for his Patron Meritorious. At the time Hans Peter told me that if I had in the future financial problems he would buy them back. I did take him up on his offer later on and found out that is not what he meant and he could no longer help me on this. I did find a buyer on my own but the most I could get for it was $10,000.00.
Another cycle for the IAS, I was convince into buying a house from Mr. Drakowski now an Sea Org member and let Mr. Drakowski stay in it with no exchange for a period of 9 months. Total invested was $82,000.00. This money was lend to some other terminals on IAS cycles. This sum is still owed by Tschupp and Bear to Mr. Drakowski
I loaned to Edwin Baer the sum of $32,000.00 guaranteed by a mortgage on his house. Later on he ask to mortgaged the same property in order to get liquidity for more IAS cycle. My guaranteed loan turns into an unsecured loan.
I loaned Edwin Baer 150,000. Swiss Francs on October 15 1989 here again to help the 4th dynamic at the IAS office. The loan was to be repaid with monthly interest paid and the loan to be repaid totally by October 15 1991. This loan is still outstanding.
This might be the worse of all the transactions. I lend $200,000 to Hans Kapar Rhyner again for an IAS cycle. In order to do this transaction I had to obtain a mortgage on my house which had none. Hans Kapar Rhyner agreed to pay interest and give monthly payments. This from the start didn't go well. It has been a year since the last payment except for one payment through the help of the Chaplain at Flag for 1,400 Swiss Francs. This had created a financial burden on me and my family since now I have to pay monthly payments to the mortgage Company.
Again with the help of Hans Peter Tschupp and Edwin Baer I was
into making a loan to Jody Darling again for the sum of
was strictly a business venture where I held
$100,000. worth of
$100,000. was a loan with interest being paid monthly. This too
and I haven't received a payment since September of 1992. I do
responsibility for all these cycles, but this does not take away
own responsibilities on this matter.
As of this writing this whole situation has created great financial hardship, stress on Mr. Jaquier. He had a stroke last fall where he was in a comma for 2 weeks. He is a comp OT VII but needs the new V rundown and cannot get back on lines because of his finance. To this day he is ill and his body is in bad shape, my wish is for this matter to be looked into and straighten out. I truly appreciate any help you can give us in this matter.

Thank you for your letter concerning Mr. Albert Jacquier and the sour investments which are not resolving. The policy concerning such disputes between Scientologists is to hold a civil Hearing. You can contact chief Public MAA FSO if you would like to get one called for Mr. Jacquier. I wish you the best in getting this resolved.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. MISCAVIGE!!!!!!!
In Oct. '93, Rhyner wrote explaining his situation. Here are some excerpts. (My explanations in brackets). It is written in deplorable French. Quote:
Not only was Albert prohibited by Scientology from suing Rhyner, even if he had there was nothing to get. It had been given to the cult already. The cult knew the loans were fraudulently obtained, even declared suppressive the individuals who had arranged the loans, BUT KEPT THE MONEY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the group that calls itself the most elite, ETHICAL group on the planet.
Rhyner's attempt to help Lavergnat did not stop him, Lavergnat, from declaring bankruptcy anyway.
When Albert received this fax he sent a report to the MAA and the Director of IAS at Flag. He said, quote:
Attached is a copy of a fax from Mr. Hans-Kaspar Rhyner, received today in reply to my demand for repayment.
I am sorry about the situation of Hans Kaspar, and I can understand his point of view very well.
These loans, (Edwin Baer, Hans Kaspar Rhyner, as well as Jody Darling which were recommended to me by the same terminals [individuals]) were done in the offices of IAS under the supervision of the director of Membership Tour Clearwater at that time, Bertie van Hoecke, Sea Org. That with the insistence of Ruth [OT8]and Edwin Baer as well as Hans Peter Tschupp. This money, according to the protagonists of these operations, was destined for IAS.
What makes me scream at the injustice is the fact that, in doing that, I was persuaded to help my group and the fourth dynamic [mankind]. You can imagine my confusion when I learned that an IAS mission [representative] advised Edwin Baer to repay Wogs [Hubbard's term for non-scientologists] before Scientologists including me. The wogs in question as it concerns Edwin Baer, are his father and his brother, both of whom are in no need [of money]. At a time when my family and myself are blocked on all our dynamics [parts of life] because of these illegal cycles which are in fact offences judicially referred to as "fraud"."
In Dec. '93, Albert wrote to the Director of IASA (IAS Administrations) about Rhyner, Baer and Darling and told him these 3 Patrons Meritorious owed him around $745,000 and none were repaying. He said he had been trying for 4 years to get his money back. He asked IAS for help and said the money had gone to IAS.
In Jan. '94, Rhyner wrote to Albert and admitted that Baer had repaid him $20,000 of the $60,000 he, Rhyner, had borrowed from Albert to give to Baer. RHYNER, HOWEVER NEVER USED THAT MONEY TO REPAY ALBERT. What did he do with it?? Keep it? Give it to IAS as well? He also told Albert he, Rhyner, had $40,000 on account with IAS.
In Jan. '94, Albert wrote to Director IAS in Clearwater, Director of all IAS at Sainthill, MAA at Flag and Guillaume Lesevre, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR INTERNATIONAL OF THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY INTERNATIONAL. He asked that IAS refund the Patron Meritorious donations of Rhyner, Baer and Darling and that the loans had been done in the name of IAS. Lesevre apparently ignored him.
Feb. 9, '94, Rhyner wrote to Albert blaming Tschupp for arranging the loans and among his excuses he mentions that he had invested hundreds of thousands in "properties" [the prints from ASI?] and there were NO prospects to sell them to.
In Feb. '94, Albert again wrote to Lesevre, IAS in Clearwater and MAA Flag. He asked again that IAS refund money to his debtors so they could repay him. He reiterated that the loans had been arranged under the supervision of IAS with lies and promises never respected. He named van Hoecke, Tschupp and the Baers and said they were working in the offices of IAS at Fort Harrison when they arranged the loans. Again Lesevre apparently ignored the situation. Later, Albert wrote to IAS that he had received NO response to his letter.
Feb. 27, '94, Rhyner again fingered Tschupp as the instigator and manipulator and "architect of all these idiocies" who had not created any debts for himself but for others. He blamed Tschupp for causing him, Rhyner, over half a million dollars of "problems". This is true. Tschupp arranged the loans, got the money paid to IAS, COLLECTED HIS COMMISSION AND LAUGHED. Currently, he has a company which Albert helped him to start, called American Flying Adventures, at Clearwater/St. Petersburg Int. Airport. Phone (813) 538 2088.
On May 4, '94, the chaplain, Sergio Mora held a pretrial conference attended by Albert and Rhyner's "attorney" Schenk. An agreement was reached that Rhyner would "abide by his written contract of 20 Nov., '89 and thus pay all monies owed per this agreement". This makes absolutely no sense because at that time Rhyner owed $344,028 but had NO MONEY. He was unable to pay ANY monies owed. Albert and Schenk and Mora signed it. This was what had been recommended by IJC and Miscavige, was unbelievably ineffective, had taken almost 3 and a half years to get done and was a farce and a waste of time.
One week later Albert wrote to the chaplain and others that Rhyner was unable to pay him.
June 29, '94, Albert asked Rhyner why he did not reply to his faxes, and threatened to take Rhyner to court in Switzerland. Rhyner replied by fax with the usual excuses and promises and also said (quote) "You can go to court in Switzerland. That will not help you in the least because, with my financial situation, I can pay nothing".
According to a statement of account in Nov. '94, the total paid by Rhyner during the whole period was around $16,000 and the total due in Nov. '94 was $344,245. The interest had been reduced again from 16% to a flat $3,000 per month. At that rate, Hans-Kaspar Rhyner, Scientologist, Patron Meritorious, Operating Thetan, etc., etc., owes the estate of Albert Jaquier (as of Oct. '96) the sum of $413,245. When contacted, he simply refuses to pay. I have been told he has money. That demonstrates the integrity of a Patron Meritorious and the integrity of the organization he is a part of and which has claimed to be rendering "justice".
A few weeks ago I was assured by representatives of the "church" of Scientology International that they could and would resolve the situation with Rhyner and Darling, but they needed some time to go through the files. NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE!!!!!!!!! Are they still in the files? Have they decided they do not want to "resolve the situation"?
I am currently preparing an even more detailed report, including all the evidence which will go to the Swiss authorities to look into Rhyner's dealings. I have learned from sources that Albert was not the only one who was victimized with these ASI prints as a "security". As these other people are Scientologists they cannot go and report Rhyner to the authorities — while I can and I WILL. Then we will see the ASI involvement in all of this.
I would like to end with the following suggestion. It is apparent that the cult of Scientology by it's policies and activities prohibits it's adherents from (or coerces them into not) reporting crimes or taking civil action against other Scientologists, as evidenced by the situations with Albert and the recent child-rape case among others, it. This results in criminals being protected and their crimes hidden and thereby allows them to continue their criminality without the censure resulting from divulgence of their past crimes. In order to protect future targets of these Scientology criminals, it is necessary that THEIR NAMES BE PUBLISHED BROADLY TOGETHER WITH THEIR CRIMES AND OTHER RELEVANT DATA ON THEM. In this way a database can be available and we can protect ourselves from them. This may seem harsh but, if the "church" of Scientology had had their wish, Strawn would not be in jail right now but possibly would be with one of our daughters.
