Affidavit of John Alan McLean
Tuesday, May 15, 1973
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I, John Alan Mclean of Rural Route #1, Sutton West, Ontario Canada, do hereby make this statement of my own free will and under my own determinism.
From February 16th 1971 through November 9th 1972, I worked and resided aboard the Flagship Apollo, the mobile headquarters of the churches of Scientology around the world.
L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Dianetics and Scientology lives and works with his wife, Mary Sue (Whipp) Hubbard aboard the Flagship Apollo, and from there, controls all Scientology organizations.
Mary Sue (Whipp) Hubbard is labelled "the controller" and is responsible for security and maintenance of such in the Scientology network. She, and her "Guardian" staff have the responsibility of quelling any and all bad publicity against the organization.
While on board the ship, I had occasion to converse with, and to overhear conversations between L. Ron Hubbard and Mary Sue (Whipp) Hubbard.
On or about July 14 while standing on the quarter deck of the ship just outside L. Ron Hubbard's dining lounge, I overheard a conversation between L. Ron Hubbard and his wife Mary Sue.
This conversation dealt with one Paulette Cooper, the authoress of an anti-Scientology book, "The Scandal of Scientology". Mary Sue was telling Ron of the fact that Paulette Cooper would be hit from all fronts with lawsuits from Scientology. Mary Sue stated that she felt that Paulette Cooper talked and wrote too much about Scientology. Mary Sue stated that she would totally destroy her credibility and that no publisher would ever touch her again, and resultantly, she would never get another book published. It was also stated by her Scientology would sue, and keep suing Paulette, until she broke.
She also said that Paulette Cooper would be sued everywhere the book was published. Mention was also made of a suit, either instituted at that time, or to be started in England re her book.
That was the extent of the conversation concerning Paulette Cooper which I overheard.
I have read the above and it is true.
