An Ontario Provincial Police officer testified yesterday she spent almost three years undercover as a Scientologist and wound up on the staff of the Church of Scientology's Guardian's Office.

Acting Sergeant Barbara Taylor told an Ontario Court jury that while she was working between 1981 and 1983 for the Guardian's Office — an office set up by the Scientologists to handle the church's legal affairs — she had access to intelligence files denied regular Scientology staff and followers.

Among them were files on the OPP and the detective supervising Sgt. Taylor's assignment. She said some of the information appeared to be from OPP personnel files, including references to job-performance evaluations.

The trial, in which five Scientologists have pleaded not guilty to breach-of-trust charges, continues today.
