First series of questions / Question I-5:
Second series of questions / Question II-4-d:
Thus, it was determined that Scientology policy called for CSFSO to fund CSI’s day-to-day expenses. However, CSI also looked to other churches for support in exchange for ecclesiastical services and religious materials that it would provide. But CSI determined that their funding should be deposited in a reserve to pay for programs to benefit the entire religion, which also is a scriptural requirement regarding the use of such funds. However, due to governmental considerations in other countries, most foreign churches had to pay CSI directly for any services it provided them. Thus, as a practical matter, only United States churches could directly fund such a reserve.
Thus, in consultation with counsel, CSI executives proposed a structure under which CSFSO would provide for CSI’s day—to-day operating expenses; United States churches would make their payments against management billings to Church of Scientology Religious Trust (“CSRT”), which would accumulate the funds to use for the overall benefit of the religion, independent of the needs of any particular church; and foreign churches would pay csi directly for their management billings, which funds CSI would apply for the benefit of the religion as a whole. Since CSI already had received management payments from the United States churches since its formation, CSI would transfer an amount equal to what it had reserved along with interest for the period in question, to CSRT once the arrangement was finalized. WDC approved the plan, and it was implemented. Over the years, CSRT did accumulate funds which have been of great benefit to achieving the goals of the religion by enabling different churches to purchase or renovate buildings, assisting dissemination programs and has provided grants and loans to other Churches of Scientology in need of financial assistance. Unfortunately, CSI’s operating cost became higher than anticipated and the support provided by the foreign churches and by CSFSO was barely sufficient to cover CSI’s day—to—day operating costs, let alone the costs of projects of benefit to the religion as a whole.
Thus, in mid—1985, CSI executives reviewed this finance system with Church attorneys and determined it to be unworkable. Accordingly, they decided that CSI should receive payments directly from United States and foreign churches, as well as from CSFSO. CSI thereupon sent letters to all United States churches instructing [...]
