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.

The following is a declaration written by a person within 24 hours of his release from an Introspection Rundown by the NSW — Australia Police. He was incarcerated for more than 3 months.
I have been advised by a member of OSA that the member has written a new declaration, when I asked did they remove the Police record he was silent.
I have changed the names and addresses.
19th Dec 1994
THIS IS A STATEMENT MADE OUT FOR THE LOCAL DETECTIVES OF THE STATE POLICE.
IN IT I EXPRESS NO DESIRE TO BRING CHARGES AGAINST ANY MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY.
IT IS SIMPLY A TRUE TESTIMONY OF THE INHUMANE WAY IN WHICH I WAS TREATED BY PEOPLE WHOM I USED TO KNOW AS FRIENDS.
To introduce myself my name is [name witheld]. I am a special type of member of the Church of Scientology. I am classified as a "Sea Organisation" member. I am contracted to the Church of Scientology in a non legal contract which makes me a Sea Organisation member for the next billion years.
At the moment I am not doing any work for the Church due to the harsh treatment that I received from individuals within the [city name withheld] branch of the Sea Organisation. This treatment involved being locked in a confined space for two weeks without adequate food, being treated by the technical staff as if I were devoid of any sanity which is in fact totally untrue. I have also been confined to a property in [city name withheld] for about three months where I was denied the personal freedom of leaving that property without an escort. I guess the most upsetting thing about all of this is that I always was only too willing to work for the Church and although I was quite capable of performing any duty assigned to me I was denied the opportunity to do any type of work for the Church.
Instead of being allowed on the Church premises I was kept away from the premises for the last five months of my life. It still is my intention to do work for the Church yet I am denied that right because the technical staff have me labelled as insane. I believe that I am not insane and in fact never was insane.
The Case Supervisors name is Mr [name withheld] and he, more than any other person in the Sea Organisation is the person that prevents me from operating in the Sea Organisation as a staff member. As I mentioned before, I am only too willing to work for the Church of Scientology as a Sea Org member but I am being prevented from being allowed to work.
I was put onto an Audited Rundown called the "Introspection Rundown." This rundown I do not know a large amount of information about. But simply the name of it implies that it is intended to be given to people who are manifesting introversion of some particular nature. I have been shown a photocopied page of the bulletin which outlines the Introspection Rundown and it stated something along these lines — "the Introspection Rundown is applied to people who make continual originations to the examiner and are particularly interested in their case." That is what I was shown as the LRH reference which is being applied as to why I was put through this horrible experience of being Audited on a Rundown that I never needed in the first place.
What I was actually going through as a being was a genuinely enturbulating experience in which semi-sentient beings were actually creating effects on me through communication and intention. This was occurring to me over these past few months for extended periods of each and every day. I do not know who they were or where they were or where they are from but at times. I was pretty enturbulated. I communicated some of this to [name withheld].
She was my immediate Senior. Her solution was to put me onto the decks and have me do menial duties. And so that is what I started doing. I of course did fantastic things for people while I was doing this work because I am highly intelligent and very in present time and very competent. I have always been like this. I was later informed that I was to do the Introspection R/d. My immediate thoughts on this were that they could not possibly see me as introverted and yet that was what I was put onto. I was dead set against doing this action as I thought that me, of all people needing to do this action was the most preposterous thing that I could possibly imagine as being something that I needed. I never needed any kind of special attention whatsoever.
While "on the decks" I noticed that there was a genuine shortage of work, in other words there was nothing to do, and yet my own section of AOSH [withheld] (Advanced Org Saint Hill [withheld withheld withheld withheld]) needed a helping hand. I was denied the right to work there. I was illegally posted as an AO crew member anyway because I am by rights an ITO staff member who was nabbed in the first place.
Anyway back onto the subject of having my rights violated due to the misapplication of a Rundown that I never needed in the first place. Here is the series of major events and a bit about each one.
[place name withheld]
I had been the R/d for about three weeks. I told [name withheld] that these semi sentient beings were upsetting me and lying to me she gave me some crazy advice that I should attempt to "Reunite," whatever that means. I sent a dispatch in regard to my sit to RTC and within one hour I became locked up in [place name withheld]. While in [place name withheld], I was not properly fed, in fact I was denied food for several days. I was manhandled back into the dormitory every time that I attempted to leave the room. One time it took three fully grown men to get me back into that dormitory. Looking back on that time these people had a look in their eyes as if they intended that I die in that room. It was quite frightening because they offered no explanation as to why they were keeping me confined in that room and at the same time I was not being fed and I, in fact had nobody to talk when I got upset. At no time did I act violently toward anyone and yet I was treated in a way that denied my rights as a citizen of this country because I was kept confined for no valid reason. I was later informed that if a person is on the introspection R/d that it is a standard action to put someone through this type of treatment. I get the impression that I was intentionally put on this R/d so that I could be treated in this fashion if the Case Supervisor so decided — I was at no point in time introverted. This is the truest truth that I know.
While I was being held captive at [place name withheld] I noticed a strange report on me being written by a staff member that was holding me captive that had different dates written on it. I also noticed that my captors were all behaving very strangely as if they were all devoid of any and all rationality and they only had the one intention to keep me held captive in that room for an extended period of time. These were people that I had worked with and serviced for some years and yet while they were holding me captive they certainly looked out of character. It was as if they all had this vindictive gaze on their face while they looked at me. I didn't understand why they looked so insane because they refused to talk to me.
Late one night, while I was being held captive in the dormitory at [place name withheld], I was silently taken out of the bedroom and led into a large white car. We travelled toward an unknown destination and these same eerie characters that I used to know as friends gave me the impression that they were taking me to some isolated stretch of highway where they would stick a knife into my back. That may sound a little weird but realise that these people didn't appear to me to be sane. For instance none of them talked to me at all. And they all seemed so goddamned serious that it was as if they were taking me away to die.
It turned out that I arrived at a farm belonging to [name withheld] (a Scientologist). I occupied this old, dingy caravan for many weeks. I was fed on boiled potatoes and porridge. I was given vitamins which ended up coming out of my pocket anyway.
All this while I was offered no explanation as to why I was being held captive on that property. Also I was offered no explanation as to why these people whom I knew refused to talk to me. They had a look of deep hatred in their eyes while they looked at me though. I used to ask them questions very often. I got no answer, only deep silence and an unspoken hatred for me which I still have not been offered any explanation for.
The people whom were holding me captive were frequently changed . Even AO public were being sent to the farm to baby-sit me. I never needed this "treatment." The only effect that this treatment had on me was that I got very upset. My PC folder shows a good indication of how upset I am at having being put on this enturbulating Rundown known as the Introspection Rundown.
I look back at the treatment I received even now, during the course of this rundown and I just shake my head in bitter resentment at the reason why I was put on this rundown, for there appears to be no reason.
The way I have been treated over the last few months as a result of this rundown literally makes my hands shake.
After one month [name withheld], my Auditor, started to visit me daily. She would be given specially worked out subjects to ask me about in regards to handling my "case."
These questions had to do with subjects that were not causing me any type of difficulty at all. The thing that concerned me which I wanted handled in the auditing was that there was an incessant supply of semi-intelligent spirits that continually communicated with me. The auditor carefully avoided this topic and so my being put onto this action seemed at the time to be hysterically funny. I look back on it now and regret that I didn't end this sooner.
My main mistake was that I cooperated with these people in their unreasonable demands that I be kept for some months in isolation. I could have easily escaped but I chose to cooperate. I thought that sooner or later the idiots at AOSH [withheld] would simply realise that I never needed this ridiculous type of treatment in the first place but they didn't.
Three days ago I was sitting in a chair minding my own business and [name withheld] physically attacked me. He grabbed me by the cuff and started threatening that he was going to kill me. I handled this problem simply by not laying a finger on him. This man was one of my captors and his attack was completely unprovoked.
Yesterday my captor refused to feed me.
I decided to go for an unescorted walk. While walking I realised that I hadn't talked to my mother for quite some time. I said hello. She was worried sick about me. She had called the [city name withheld] AO many times over the last few months and had been offered no explanation as to where I was except that I was having 'psychological problems.' She was told that I was on a farm and was being helped with my psychological problems.
I told her that I was upset because they were not letting me off the property and that I had been sent there for no legitimate reason at all.
While I was at the phone booth my captor arrived to take me back. Within five minutes two more people, one of whom was the very same man that threatened to kill me, arrived on the scene in a four-wheel-drive vehicle to take me back to the property. I was being manhandled out of the area and into the vehicle while my captor was talking to my mother on the phone. He hung up on my mother and we drove away.
Half an hour later the [city name withheld] police arrived on the scene. The constable took me aside and said that he had been informed by my mother that I was being held on the property against my will. He then asked me if I wanted to leave. I said yes.
He drove me to the train station and let me go wherever I wanted to.
I went to my uncles place in [city name withheld].

Addendum by Raymond Hill: the post below seems to be related to the above declaration, so this can definitely be verified even though it is anonymous (readers could be rightfully skeptical about an anonymous declaration.)
When an Australia [Church of Scientology] member was distressed with approximately 3 months of incarceration he escaped using the following steps:
a) Escaped to the nearest phone booth.
Why does the CofS Australia use these tactics? Does the [Church of Scientology] advise recruits that this could happen to them?
