Belgium will try two Scientology organizations and 10 Scientologists for fraud

Scientology_BelgiumBreaking news from our man in Paris, Jonny Jacobsen, who tells us that Belgian prosecutors finally announced their decision in a criminal case that has been a long time coming. Here’s Jonny’s report…

A court in Belgium on Thursday has sent two Scientology organisations and at least 10 Scientologists for trial, the Belga news agency reports.

The Chambre de Conseil had been considering whether two criminal investigations against the movement, one dating back as far as 1997, should go to court.

The cases, already merged into one, involve accusations fraud, illegal practice of medicine and the non-respect of privacy laws.

One incident police investigated was the placing of false job adverts that gave the impression that paid work was available when in fact it was for unpaid work.

Perhaps the most important feature of the ruling is it is going after two Scientology non-profit organisations in Belgium and not just members of the movement.

The court decided that the statute of limitations for the alleged offences in the case of an 11th Scientologist had passed.

And it ordered that the case regarding a 12th Scientologist should be transferred because he is an English-speaker — but to where or what is not clear.

The individuals and the two organisations sent for trial have the right to appeal the Belgian court’s decision within 15 days.

Scientology has already issued a statement attacking the ruling and vowing to defend itself.

It denounced what it said was a “modern inquisition” that amounted an attack on freedom of religion.

Thursday’s ruling in Belgium follows the definitive conviction last year in France of two Scientology organisations — and several Scientologists — for fraud.

As we have reported here before, there is every sign that Belgian investigators have learned from the approach taken in France.

 
More detail from Jonny: Prosecutors are targeting the Church of Scientology in Belgium and its Brussels-based European Office for Public Affairs and Human Rights.

Since federal prosecutors have characterised the movement as a criminal organisation, this means — in theory at least — that it could be banned in Belgium if convicted, according to Belgian press reports.

All those sent for trial have 15 days in which to lodge an appeal and Scientology has already made it clear that it will fight all the way.

“We cannot help but hope that this interminable investigation is nothing less than a modern inquisition and an affront to freedom of religion and the rights of the defence,” said a Scientology statement.

The time the investigation had taken — the earliest of the two dates back to 1997 — showed that the facts were “non-existent” and that the case was “made up of rumours, attributing motives and lies to what the Scientology religion really is,” the statement added.

Scientology should not be treated any differently from other religions, it insisted, concluding that the movement would fight to the very end any “any biased criminal proceedings that violates their basic rights”.

But there is still a way to go before the case gets to trial — if indeed it ever does.

Once the appeals are lodged, it could take months for the higher court to deliver its ruling, Belgian media reported.

And if that goes against Scientology, it might even be possible for the defendants to find grounds for a further appeal on a point of law.

This would not be the first time the movement has tried to kill off the case against it.

Scientology has already tried to get the earlier of the two cases involved here thrown out.

Their lawyers argued that prosecutors’ comments to the news media in the years following the launch of the 1997 investigation had prejudiced their right to a fair trial.

After arguing their case in vain in the Belgian courts, they filed a case with the European Court of Human Rights, but the Strasbourg-based court also rejected their complaint.

For more details, see this earlier report at Infinite Complacency.

 
Thank you, Jonny.

    Please don’t “boo” me out of here, but I was just over at Marty’s Fun House of WooWoo, and I’ve gotta ask.
    Is the comment section over there parody? Loon performance art? Never have so many perfectly good words been slaughtered in order to say absolutely nothing. The delusion is very, very deep over there.

    • Eclipse-girl

      Be kind to the indies…They hate David, too.
      If they are not breaking the law or involved in criminal activities, let them have their security blankets.

      • Anonymookme

        I. Just. Can’t.
        I hope Monique kicks COS ass in court, but I’ve got to tell you, it’s Loon Central over there. When Marty chucks his superiority complex, then and only then will I believe that he’s really seen the light. I really feel so sorry for all of them.

        • Eclipse-girl

          I do not usually read Marty’s bolg. I go to Mike’s but rarely read the comments.

          I firmly believe in the right to believe whatever the hell you want as long as you obey the law. They can educate their kids privately, if they so choose.
          Or we can do what I believe Germany has done and mandate a public education for every child. I would agree to that, too

        • GalacticGreg

          I think Marty has already chucked the superiority complex you ascribe to him. You’re missing it. The following Rathbun posted:

          “Both [ Hubbard and Hawkins, another bid idea guy ] found workability in utilizing simple true/false detectors of energy connected with thought. Hubbard’s of course was the e-meter. Hawkins’ was the use of applied kinesiology.

          — Both chartered and described the realms of higher states of awareness and consciousness discoverable by disciplined utilization of those thought-energy tools.

          — On the other hand, both became so enamored with the efficacy of their tools that they lost the plot.

          — First, by buying into the infallibility of their chosen mechanics, they in some ways dragged spirit/life down to the mechanics they used to explore it.

          — Second, by overvaluing the adoration that the workability of their paths engendered, they succumbed to the seduction of guru status and the debilitating judgmentalism such positions breed.

          • SvenBoogie

            While I have decidedly less strong opinions about Marty one way or the other than Anon, I don’t find any of what you quoted contrary to a superiority complex. If anything, I find it just another example that he continues to see Tubby as anything other than the con man he was.

            • GalacticGreg

              I can see your seeing his analysis as ‘superiority’ complexing. Still, I love the fact that he his throwing gasoline on Hubbard and $cientology and lighting a match, for indies.

          • Anonymookme

            Sorry, but Marty & his WooWoo commentors ooze a false, crazy, really embarrassing air of superiority. It’s as if no one has had the stones to tell them that the silly Woo they
            All adhere to (big, fat, floppy lipped Hubbard) is a joke and a con. Please! I’m begging, someone tell them! I damn near get the dry heaves every time I read the blovations of The Oracle and Miraldi. Loons!

            • kemist

              Some people are not satisfied with the actual, real world as it stands and seem to need some form of woo-woo.

              Educating them doesn’t help, since it’s not truth they’re after. It’s feel good things about how they are so totally in control of their universe, maaaan. The alternative (that there’s very little under their control and that they’re utterly insignificant in the grand scheme of things) scares them.

              As long as they don’t push it upon the rest of us and don’t actually commit criminal acts, I say let them have their mushy thinking and mystical superior air.

              And if you think The Oracle and Miraldi are loons with airs of superiority, you should read RemoteViewed on Mike Rinder’s blog. He makes them look quite tame.

            • Robert Eckert

              Then there’s Margaret, who makes all of LRH’s claims about his war records true, in the face of all the documents, by simply denying that the documents mean what they mean.

            • Eclipse-girl

              I thought someone did recently on Mike’s blog.
              Maybe it was 1sub.

              i have seen that Mike is pretty tolerant as long as the post is civil.

            • GalacticGreg

              okay. i give. I see Mark as letting go of his belief in $cientology and El Ron El Rey Hubbturd. And I really appreciate that. His expression of that departure from his former belief system is a huge influence on indie Hubblard Kool-aid drinkers.

        • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

          This seems like it would be a good read for Marty: http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/the-path-between-pseudo-spirituality-and-pseudo-science
          Please, someone post it in his comment section.

      • SvenBoogie

        The problem there is ‘hating David’ while continuing to love the nonsense that birthed him.

        • Eclipse-girl

          I understand what you say.

          I have to go by the adage
          It is not about beliefs, it is about criminal behavior

          • SvenBoogie

            One stems from the other.

            • Eclipse-girl

              I know there is HUGE inconsistency in the writing and various edicts of Hubbard.
              I know that Hubbard ordered his followers to break the law.

              It is for the indies to decide how to create a “kinder, gentler” form of scientology, not me.

              ETA : have indies been found guilty of crimes since they left the corporate church?

            • SvenBoogie

              I see the prospect of creating a ‘kinder, gentler scientology’ as roughly as feasible as creating a ‘kindler, gentler’ form of bloodletting as medicine.

            • Eclipse-girl

              I totally agree.

              ETA : It is not for me to be involved in their attempt

        • Yeah. Freedom – ain’t it a bitch when people use it to do something with which you disagree?

          Seriously, ex-victims are not my private army and as long as they do not attack the internet or break the rule of law, they have neither more nor less right to believe things that I find silly.

    • GalacticGreg

      I’m one of the last to ever be a fan of Mark Rathbun, but he is changing. You musn’t be blind to that.

      “What I see that I have to contribute to the mix is not necessarily wisdom or enlightenment, but instead the willingness to explore and communicate what a lot of Scientologists and former Scientologists have intuited but haven’t been willing or able to follow through with overtly.” — Mark ‘Marty’ Rathbun

      And that is, that Hubbard is fallible and $cientology is not what Hubbard claims it to be.

    • Jon Hendry

      There’s a range. There are a few people who are still quite hooked on Hubbard, and post reams of comments over there. There’s the one guy who has created a melange of Hubbard and Christianity. There are others who are seem much less attached to Hubbard. And there are some people who are very much no fan of Hubbard. Some are even regulars here.

      What’s important, I think, is the mostly-friendly free exchange of ideas between CoS antagonists, die-hards, and people in the middle.

    • Baby

      We only Boo Cruiser at Dodger’s games..

  • Disaffected

    The Anointed One will have great trouble keeping up now. As he micromanages EVERYTHING his attention span is about to snap. Where HE used to deploy THE most favored tactic of Co$ — to overwhelm–, taught by his Messiah, he now finds himself at the receiving end of it. Just an off the cuff list that must be in his mind: mass SO defections speaking out (Jillian), Tony O, Marty, Mike, Jenna, Karen, Atack, Miller, Tory etc. etc. for blogs/books. Lawsuits: Mosey, Laura, Garcia’s, NN’s everywhere, CC paris, Brussels…. (I’m sure I didn’t even list half of it). Ongoing “events”… Whales to entertain for their Cash…. Idle morgue openings, INT EXECS to punch and torture…keeping BBF status with Dwarf II (cruise)…. dang, I’ll not be surprised if the Anointed One gets a psychotic break soon (as his Master had). Or a stroke, heart attack, severe asthmatic seizure…, just a thought. I sure he stays alive long enough to make the deposition though, id love to seem him stutter and display the complete moron he turns in when put under legal scrutiny. It really sucks to be Miscavige!

    • cdub

      During his day, Hubbard never had to deal with this volume of attacks since Scientology was such a newcomer back then and it hadn’t accumulated all this baggage. Thus Davey has no playbook for attack problems of this scale. Add to this little education, his pope-complex, and the problems he continues to create.

      And the hits just keep on coming.

      • Disaffected

        Yes, accurate addition. It just makes me wonder how much longer can he hold this you know.

        Nice song do.

  • media_lush

    I have a strong feeling that Cruise, for the first time, is actually dreading doing the red carpet PR for his new movie…. here are some suggestions for crowd shout-outs?

    1. Is it true you’ve disconnected from Suri?

    2. Is David Miscavige still your best friend?

    3. Given what’s happening to all your Narconon outfits are you still the authority on drug rerhab?

    4. Hey Tom, what’s with all the Alien movies?… are you searching for Xenu or something?

    5. Is it true you’re going to be the new Arts Minister of The Ukraine… you know, all that scinetology mumbo jumbo that’s supposed to be going on over there…?

    …. feel free to add your own

    • Miss Tia

      Are you still the Sofa King?
      How many car accident victims have you stopped to help?

    • EnthralledObserver

      I think they are all a little too sophisticated. I’d just go with a simple, but VERY loud:
      “Where is Shelly Miscavige?”

      • media_lush

        I know what you mean but that’s a big deal for those of us that know… I always feel you have to go for the lowest common denominator in these situations…

        • EnthralledObserver

          I see your point… 🙂

    • Baby

      Do you think that because you are a Scientologist is the reason that you were booed at the Dodgers Game?

      • Just Dee

        good one

        • Baby

          Thank you Just Dee.. I would love to have him answer that one for sure! Or at least watch him squirm!

    • Just Dee

      Leave out the mocking comments #4 & #6. Stick to the short disconnection, narconon, shelly, suri type of comments. Has a better impact in my opinion.

    • Toni m

      8.- Boooooooo

    • How does it feel to be the biggest supporter of human rights violations in the Scientology Sea Org?
      How does it feel to be worshipped by a bunch of degraded beings who are not Scientologists?
      How’s the Wog Life treating you?
      Were you Xenu in a past life?
      Hey Tom! You look Xenufied. Which designer are you wearing tonight?
      Is Suri a degraded being now bc she left Scientology?
      Did all those people who died at Narcanon “pull it in” Bc they were out ethics?

      • Miss Tia

        yeah, how DOES he justify his association and fans that are WOGs? is it okay as long as he gets their money??

        oh here’s another one—you ever feel any guilt disconnecting your kids with nicole from her?

        • Yup. Wogs are stupid remember? He’s the Bigger being.

        • How does it feel like going through life dating SP’s? Man they are everywhere!

      • valshifter

        I like the second one, good one.
        Are you Knoledge reporting Suri after you talk on the phone with her?

    • Miss Tia

      Do you count the $cientology gifts and slave labor on your taxes?

      How’s the wife auditions going?

      There’s 10 SPs in the crowd Tom, can you use your OT powers to find them and then confront and shatter?

    • Baby

      Hey Tom.. I understand that Katie is now an Sp.

      Do you think that it is fair to other Scientologists that you aren’t forced to disconnect from Suri since they have to disconnect from their friends and family members who are NOT Scn.

    • Baby

      Tom.. Ya dated/ married Nicole Kidman now (46 ) Katie Holmes ( 34) now Nazanin Boniadi is now (31) , Pelenlope Cruz is now 39, Laura Prepon is now 34..

      You are going to be 52.. Why don’t ya date or marry someone your own age?

      • outraged

        From what I have heard, Mr. Cruise prefers men.

        • Eclipse-girl

          I really think that is a lie that is perpetuated by some.

          Nicole and Tom’s HS girlfriends all said differently.
          Mimi left a one liner once, but maybe she was pissed about being dumped ?

          • outraged

            I don;t know the man personally, but I have heard for years and years and years that he is gay. That was at least the rumor in NYC in the early 80’s. That does not mean he does not like the occasional female. And of course, him image requires a wife.

            • Eclipse-girl

              Not only is gender complicated but so is sexual attraction. I believe that follows the spectrum from very straight to very gay / lesbian. Most people are not at the extremes.

              There have been no credible reports of Tom being gay.
              Not even from the 1980s.
              He did a film (Top Gun ? or maybe an earlier one) that became a fave is the gay scene.

              Me, myself and I :
              I would prefer to stick to factual information
              Like when I deal with Jeff Cigar at Radar.
              Its just my style

              I know that others joke about Tom and David being BFFs and all that.
              I think the two men have an intense relationship, perhaps as close as brothers since Tom never had one and Ron Jr is estranged from David.
              I do not believe that Tom is gay.

              But I do think Tom is a douche bag, ass hole or what other pejorative you may want to use

            • outraged

              Unlike John Travolta, Tom Cruise is very very careful. I do believe he prefers men. And I can totally believe he was hot for Penelope Cruz, so am I and I have never had sex with a female. Maybe Tom is bisexual.

              I know people who saw him at the baths in NYC. And I believe that one day at that huge house in LA Katie came home and found Tom and Becks neekid.

              And then years later when Katie finally was able to bolt, that was her ticket out.

            • Eclipse-girl

              Its not an argument. We agree to disagree.

              We are both doing what we can to bring down the cult of scientology.
              That is the important thing.

            • Scream Nevermore

              Becks likes ladies, not laddies. You are on the wrong track there.

        • Baby

          You know when Cruise left Scn upon Nicole’s insistence I think that SCN planted alot of stories to Dead Agent Him ..

          I personally think he is Asexual … I don’t know why..He just gives off that vibe.

          • Eclipse-girl

            I think when he is getting into character or thinks he has something important to do, he goes into “monk mode.”
            Mimi’s one liner was about Tim being pure for his craft, IIRC and I do make mistakes.

            • Baby

              Well if she called him Tim no wonder they got divorced..haha

            • Eclipse-girl

              I have NOT seen a movie that he has been in since Jerry Maguire.. He is totally black balled.

            • outraged

              Where did that term come from?

              Black Balled. Doesn;t it sound weird saying it over and over like some words? -}

              Bet it’s from pool.

    • media_lush

      for those that might not of seen it before here’s the video where Cruise gets squirted with a water pistol at a red carpet event in London…. initially he laughs it off but then he you see him applying his shatter and confront technique…. look at his eyes at the end… guys a nutcase!

      http://youtu.be/DONrKwEFgbE

      • RMycroft

        Meh, it was a pretty stupid stunt.

      • Disaffected

        He couldn’t predict what they guy will do with all his supah powaazz? I’d put him back on objectives 🙂

      • valshifter

        He laughs naturally and then he reacts like ” ho wait the tech, I have to use the tech” come here don’t go I have to shatter you, Miscavich might watch this and he might put his little finger on my face for missing a chance to show the wog world, that scientology can shatter suppression.

        • Haha.. I noticed that too Val. He’s like “no don’t go, I’m not done shattering suppression”.

    • outraged

      Cruise is such a maniacal control freak he will probably make sure none of these questions are asked by placing all of his own people up and down the red carpet.

    • Disaffected

      Did your pall Miscavige, buy 5000 première tickets to send his slaves to support your movie succes?

    • valshifter

      Where is Shelly, your best buddy’s wife?

  • media_lush

    ever wondered how Miscavige might be feeling like right now? (he’s the smaller one, obviously)

    pic

    Scientology INSIST in all their debates that this is “an attack on freedom of religion” and they have avowed to defend to the end” until we the wog world accept them as being right.
    They want to feel FREE to trample and take away the basic rights and liberties of a human being , including freedom of speech and pursuit of happiness as you wish, since including happiness has to be their way or no way.
    Among other religious practices we have in Scientology; black mail, enforced abortions, human trafficking, kidnaping , Snitching, lying, spying, civil harassment, no refunds, poor living conditions of parishioners, racism, classism, sexism, child labor, unfair pay for labor, tax avoidance, money laundering, bate and switch, misrepresentation, false advertisement, Disconnection, etc etc, feel free to add to the list. ARE THEY BLIND? this practices are not considered as religious practices by anybody with common sense, they can fight all they want the wog world and laws have more common sense and more sensibility than the new world order called Scientology.

    • Exactly. What would be neat would be if someone with a bit of spare time and access to copies of the court documents entered by the criminal organisation known as the “church” of $cientology (e.g. in the Laura DeCrescenzo, the Monique Rathbun and the Lawrence Wollersheim cases) defining their “religious” activities and turn it into an easily accessible page. Just so that journalists and lawyers who are wondering if that nice “religious” organisation could be right in claiming that attacks on it are attacks on “religious” freedom

        I want to see if Steve Martin will reply. That would be great.

        • media_lush

          I got excited when I saw this tweet from Eric idle thinking it might be something about scientology they were going to put in their new show in London but remembered it was a song from The Meaning Of Life….

            I got to see him live when he was doing a tour in 2004 or so. He was great.
            He even chatted just a bit with our daughter who was 12 as he appeared to be missing his youngest who might have been 13.

              I was lucky enough to be invited to the premiere of A Fish Called Wanda (he wasn’t in it, ed) when I lived in New York and Palin and Kline was messing about with french fries up their nose and ketchup… offering them to us etc [you understand this if you see the film]… there was kind of an informal q and a afterwards… of course everybody loved the film… IMO one of the funniest comedies ever. Cleese was brilliant but Kevin Kline stole the movie.

            • GalacticGreg

              yeah- one of the greatest comedies ever. Off the meter hilarious.

            • Eclipse-girl

              Totally agree that Kline stole stole the movie.
              The whole cast was excellent.

    Heads up: on the South African ex’s blogs, some OSA goon is attempting to “dead agent” Jillian:

    • Eclipse-girl

      I liked seeing Karen and J swift and others defend Jillian.
      This whole black PR or Dead Agent Pack stuff is getting old.
      Too many people have lived through it to believe it when used against someone who has just escaped.

      • Narapoid

        Its old and spotted easily. They can’t get traction in knowing forums. The first responder was nice in their response to “Mary”, but Karen, J and at least a half-dozens others slapped it down and called it out as a dead agent pack.

        Hubbard’s 1950s notions of control doesn’t do crap in the internet age. They can’t hide anymore, and they are getting destroyed.

        • Free Minds, Free Hearts

          Agreed, it is more easily spotted and OSA can’t get away with it anymore. I love karen and J Swift;s comments in response to OSA “Mary” on the SA back-in-comm blog.

    • Baby

      Thanks Doloras.. Just posted and waiting for moderation..

    • DodoTheLaser

      Classic “dead agent” stuff, indeed. Too classic and too obvious.

  • Jo

    Sorry off topic. Scientology FB has posted several human rights vids in the past 24hrs, 2 narconon and a fakery award. Here’s some pics.

      Hi Jo.. Not off topic at this time of night honey.. and Geeze it is about Scilllloooooooneytunes..

      • Jo

        I got a horrible head cold, flu, not sure, can’t sleep. I find it strange that they are posting all this human rights stuff. Looks likes their panicking 🙂

        • Baby

          ((HUGS))) awwww sweetie feel better.. ; /

          You can feel and smell the fear from the Bunker.. yep..

            Thanks, starting to feel a bit better 🙂

  • Narapoid

    I found my new favorite toy. Thanks meme generator!

  • Yay! for Belgium.

    Another way in which Belgium learned from the experience in France was that they immediately made copies of all the papers seized in raids on the criminal organisation known as the “church” of $cientology and made sure that the copies were stored in different places. We can’t have document getting mysteriously officially ordered to be destroyed, now, can we?

    The law should follow due process, but in this case it would be nice if the Belgian system could focus its intention on keeping things moving… I’m sure the clams, if they were to be found guilty, will appeal the whole thing on the grounds that it took too long. I think it’s already taken too long, but happily it’s not too late yet to Do Something About It.

    Edit: Now we just need Denmark and England to get with the programme. Certainly England has past sins to make up for – child protection services sending a child victim back to the Damnation Navy. Grrr! http://theapolloseries.blogspot.fr/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JUUzC31uLk

    Nazanin Boniadi and Clearwater Mystery in the same sentence has my full attention,
    but I’m probably reading too much into it. Yeah, that must be it.

    “‘Scandal’s’ Nazanin Boniadi Talks Adnan’s Connection to Harrison, Clearwater Mystery”
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/scandals-nazanin-boniadi-talks-adnans-691523?mobile_redirect=false
    “The actress, newly promoted to regular on Showtime’s “Homeland,”
    previews what’s ahead on ABC’s political thriller. ”

    Snips:

    “We know Adnan has had a role in insider trading and something called Clearwater. What can you say about that?”

    “Not much! (Laughs.) It’s one of those things that we’ve talked about several times throughout the season. Clearwater has come up but it’s something that she’s holding over Harrison’s head. It’s what empowers her when she wants something and when she wants Harrison to do something for her.”

    “How does Clearwater compare to things we’ve seen before on the show, like Defiance?

    [It’s the same] in the sense that everybody has something on everybody else on the show Everybody is both good and bad. Everybody has a dark side and a good side. Adnan holding something over Harrison —
    Clearwater — is that dark past that she’s using and it shows that Harrison isn’t squeaky clean. He’s a Gladiator, yes, and he’s changed his ways, but he also has a dark past. In that sense, it’s a common thread throughout the show that everybody has something to hide, something to lose, something that they want to hold on to. They are all risking things and they’re trying to achieve something, but they also don’t want to let that one thing in their life ruin what they’re trying to achieve.”

    • DodoTheLaser

      “Harrison” in “Clearwater mystery” reminds of something too. Can’t put my finger on it.

      • Scarlet

        I was watching Scandal as well. I perked right up when I heard the “Clearwater” reference from Nazanin. The connection to the character Harrison went over my head! Thank you for pointing that out. Very clever!

        • DodoTheLaser
          • Scarlet

            Thank you for the Welcome Dodo! I have been around since the VV days. I just do not post very much. I finally did post in December just prior to the catfish incident. After that I was a bit apprehensive to post but remain committed as always. The Scandal episode had me smiling knowing “Hollywood” is getting bolder in their references to the CO$ and that means that the CO$ is losing power!! Thanks again for the Welcome, I always see you late at night (my time) and know from your postings that you are a kind and gentle soul.

            • DodoTheLaser

              Thank you Scarlet! You are very kind.
