WireService.ca Media Release (08/30/2014)

“The Narconon network has scammed and defrauded countless victims out of hundreds of millions and continues to do so unchecked by many government and health agencies in the United States, and elsewhere. In some cases, it is alleged that authorities fear filing lawsuits or taking on any litigation proceedings against Scientology-Narconon.

Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon, is currently facing approximately 20 or more lawsuits in the USA for fraud, civil conspiracy, wrongful deaths, misrepresentation, illegal confinement, and numerous other acts that violate human rights and freedoms. In Canada, Scientology, Narconon, and executives are facing a lawsuit in the Montreal courthouse.

In Canada, Scientology, Narconon, and executives are facing a lawsuit in the Montreal courthouse.

Although Scientology executives vehemently deny that Narconon is part of the Scientology organization, evidence proves otherwise, and without a doubt, is a front group for Scientology. Scientology practices and doctrines are taught to Narconon patients without their consent or knowledge.

On April 9, 2012, Narconon Director of Legal Affairs spokesperson, Andre Ahern, stated to CBC News Canada, that, “…he is a Scientologist and that Narconon uses the teachings of Scientology in its program.”

NARCONON is SCIENTOLOGY

In 1993, the Church of Scientology International (CSI) and the United States Internal Revenue Service struck an agreement, under which the Church gained tax exemption for itself and its subsidiaries and in return paid $12.5m to cover the church's payroll, income and estate-tax bills for an undisclosed number of years prior to 1993, as well as discontinuing numerous lawsuits. The terms of the agreement did not become public until four years later, when they were leaked to the Wall Street Journal.

According to the Form 1023 Statement which CSI had to submit to the IRS prior to the agreement: “Narconon forms part of CSI's social betterment program.”

WHO controls Narconon today?

When the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Scientology’s Guardian's Office in 1977, in pursuit of the crimes which led eventually to the conviction of the GO's senior staff, it seized a huge quantity of confidential documents which revealed how the GO saw its relationship with Narconon.
The papers show that Narconon was, in Scientology's own words, a "front group.”

Declaration of Mark Jones

“I, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Jones, USMC (Ret) of Los Angeles, CA declare and say:

1. In or about 1971 I was approached by Arthur Maren who was the Assistant Guardian for Public Relations in the United States branch of the Guardian's Office of the Church of Scientology. Maren asked if I was willing to set up a Narconon office and establish programs under the direction of the Guardian Office. At this time, one Narconon program existed in the Arizona State Penitentiary and one was being established in the Cal. State Penitentiary at Vacaville by a member of the San Francisco Scientology Guardian Office. I agreed to do this and undertook to make Narconon an international drug rehabilitation agency on behalf of the Church of Scientology.

2. Throughout my period as director of Narconon, I reported to the Guardian's Office. Meetings were held at regular intervals at which the executives of the Guardian's Office determined the affairs of Narconon. All Narconon activities including the disposition of Narconon finances were approved by the Church of Scientology Assistant Guardian for Public Relations and the Assistant Guardian for Finance, Henning Heldt. From the time I became involved until I ultimately resigned, the Guardian Office controlled all directorships of Narconon, although Narconon was held out to be independent of the Church of Scientology.

3. In 1972 I received the Univ. of Southern Cal. Intrascience Award for my work as Director of Narconon.

4. In or about 1973, I was requested to travel to England by the Guardian's Office to assist the Deputy Guardian for Public Relations WW, David Gaiman for the Church of Scientology in recruiting and training personnel to help establish Narconon programs in Europe. I went to Europe and assisted in promoting and establishing programs in Europe.

5. Although it was publicly admitted that Narconon used the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, and was sponsored by the Church of Scientology, it's true relationship - i.e. that it was wholly controlled by the Church of Scientology, was never publicly admitted.

I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the foregoing is true and correct. - Executed this 10th day of February, 1995 in Los Angeles, Cal.”

During Scientology’s Guardian's Office reign of terror and paranoia, this cult infiltrated and stole from 136 government agencies, foreign embassies and consulates, as well as private organizations critical of Scientology, carried out by Church members, in more than 30 countries. Following an investigation by the FBI, 11 high-ranking members of Scientology were indicted on 28 charges. One of the indicted was Mary Sue Hubbard, wife of Scientology’s creator L. Ron Hubbard.

Five of the Scientologists were sentenced to four years in jail, with four of the convicted being taken immediately. Mary Sue Hubbard, wife of L. Ron Hubbard, was sentenced to five years. Each of the six faced a fine of $10,000.

Scientology’s ‘Guardian's Office’ then morphed into the new ‘Office of Special Affairs’ or OSA – and in many aspects, nothing changed, only the name. Now OSA was in control over all operations and administration of their Narconon cash cows.

Additional files for submission will be reviewed over the next few days and more news published by Examiner, David Love as soon as the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and FBI responds by email.

Many grieving families and loved ones are hoping that governments, health agencies, or the FBI and RCMP can investigate and act before more bodies are removed from Narconon to the morgue. In reality, it’s only a matter of time before more victims succumb to Scientology’s drug rehab quackery, suffer from human rights abuses, trauma or die inside Narconon.
