Science or fiction? — The Australian
Type: Press
Author(s): Natasha Bita
Source: The Australian
EVEN for a religion started by a science fiction writer, the allegations levelled against the Church of Scientology in federal parliament this week sound stranger than fiction. Blackmail, cover-ups of child abuse, labour camps, embezzlement and coerced abortions are spelled out among the 53 pages of allegations by seven former Scientologists - some of whom had climbed high in the church hierarchy - tabled in the Senate. In what the church has decried as "an outrageous abuse of parliamentary privilege", independent ...

KEVIN Rudd raised concerns about the Church of Scientology yesterday, as NSW police began investigating complaints from seven former Scientologists. The Prime Minister said he intended to examine allegations against the church before deciding whether to back independent senator Nick Xenophon's demand for a Senate inquiry. Senator Xenophon told parliament on Tuesday that Scientology was a "criminal organisation" hiding behind religion. In response to that statement, Mr Rudd said the senator was making "grave allegations". "Many people in Australia have real ...

Scientology criminal, says senator Nick Xenophon — The Australian
Type: Press
Author(s): Natasha Bita
Source: The Australian
THE Church of Scientology is a "criminal organisation" hiding behind religion, the Senate was told last night. Independent senator Nick Xenophon tabled explosive letters from former Scientology officials and staff alleging a litany of abuses, including coerced abortions, assault, imprisonment, covering up sexual abuse, embezzlement of church funds and blackmail. Senator Xenophon, who said he had referred the allegations to police, demanded a Senate inquiry into the church. And he questioned the tax-exempt status given to the church, which he said ...

Scientologists in privilege claim — The Australian
Type: Press
Author(s): Natasha Bita
Source: The Australian
THE Church of Scientology has invoked "confessional privilege" for its refusal to hand over files to the Queensland Coroner. An inquest into the death of Edward Alexander McBride – a soldier who killed himself two days after finishing one of the church's intensive courses in 2007 – revealed last week his "audit" file had been sent to the church's US headquarters. Scientology spokeswoman Vicki Dunstan yesterday said the file requested by the Coroner was "privileged and sacrosanct". "Essentially these are notations ...

Author(s): Sarah Elks

THE Church of Scientology refused to provide records demanded by a coroner investigating the death of a soldier who committed suicide two days after finishing one of the church's intensive courses. It emerged yesterday that the American headquarters of the church instructed its Australian branch to send the soldier's "audit file" to the US — which is outside the coroner's jurisdiction — before warrants were issued. Edward Alexander McBride was found electrocuted and hanged at an Energex substation at Everton Park, ...

Defence Force 'bullies' cleared over suicide — The Australian
Type: Press
Source: The Australian
A CORONER has cleared the Australian Defence Force of contributing to the suicide of a young private who had been bullied by other soldiers. In written findings handed down late last week, Brisbane coroner John Lock found there was nothing to suggest that bullying and harassment in the army was instrumental in Edward Alexander McBride's decision to end his life. Mr McBride, 30, was found hanging from a rope at the Energex substation in Brisbane's Everton Park on February 7, 2007. ...
