Scientology leader jailed for fraud // Group denounces French trial as inquisition — The Guardian (UK)
Type: Press
Author(s): Jon Henley
Source: The Guardian (UK)
In another blow to the controversial Church of Scientology's battle to be recognised as a religion rather than a sect, a French court yesterday found one of its former leaders guilty of fraud and sentenced him to six months in prison. Xavier Delamare, a former regional Scientology leader in south-east France, was given a further 18 month suspended sentence by the Marseille court while four other members accused of fraud, violence and illegally practising medicine were given suspended sentences of six ...

Sect loses battle to become a charity // Scientology 'is not a religion' — The Guardian (UK)
Type: Press
Author(s): James Meek
Source: The Guardian (UK)
The controversial Church of Scientology had its application to be recognised as a religion turned down yesterday. After more than three years' deliberation, the Charity Commissioners rejected the organisation's claim saying that it did not qualify because it was not a religion and did not benefit the public. Critics of Scientology portray the organisation as a wacky cult that brainwashes individuals and exists to make money. But adherents say such hostility amounts to religious persecution and that Scientology puts them on ...

'It is dreadful to be an onlooking parent, for the loved child is lost' — The Guardian (UK)
Type: Press
Author(s): Nick Clarke
Source: The Guardian (UK)
In the second extract from his new biography of Alistair Cooke, Nick Clarke reveals how the broadcaster's daughters became entangled in a sinister cult For all Alistair Cooke's ability to make, keep and cherish friendships across a broad - if compartmentalised - social spectrum, he was finding it no easier to deal with relationships closer to home. One of the lowest points was reached in the summer of 1965. Holly [the daughter of Cooke's second wife, Jane], still living in London, ...

Underground hero calls it a day — The Guardian (UK)

Author(s): Duncan Campbell

The man credited with being the father of the American underground press is to close the paper that smashed taboos and helped start the hippie movement more than 40 years ago. Paul Krassner, once described by the FBI as a "raving, unconfined nut", says that social change and the arrival of the internet means the Realist is no longer needed. He has decided that his newspaper, which covered and exposed scandals from the Kennedy assassination to the Monica Lewinsky case with ...

Abroad: Critics public and private keep pressure on Scientology — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Author(s): Lucy Morgan

Scientology leaders say they want peace. They say they want to stay out of court. But with both foes at home and foes abroad, that goal may be elusive. The spiritual home of the Church of Scientology is in Clearwater, but for many years now its leaders have had worldwide ambitions. But as disciples have carried L. Ron Hubbard's teachings away from America's shore, the reception has been almost universally chilly at best – and at times openly hostile. At one ...

Type: Press

ON JULY 28, an appeal court in Lyon reduced the sentences of six members of the Scientology movement charged with responsibility for the suicide of one of their followers. The court also ruled that the "Church of Scientology" was entitled to call itself a religion. In so doing, the appeal court gave the movement created by the science-fiction writer Lafayette Ron Hubbard in 1954 a seal of approval it probably did not expect. The court justified its decision by invoking an ...

THIS man has been accused of spreading race hatred. For the past 14 years Tom Marcellus has been director of the notorious American Institute for Historical Review, set up by an ex member of the National Front. But he also belongs to another organization closer to home. He is, in fact, a member and "patron" of the Sussex-based International Association of Scientologists. The group, run from the cult's East Grinstead headquarters, was founded to unite and "protect" its members in different ...
