In the net of Scientology, Psycho-Terrorism without End

Southwest Television reports on the Hamburg Organization

Baden-Baden, Germany
April 19, 2000
OTS

Baden-Baden (ots) - Up to now, Suedwestrundfunk (SWR) is the only television broadcaster which has managed to intrude into the internal life of the German "Scientology" Organization. The opportunity presented itself after "Scientology" left its world renowned establishment ("Org") in Hamburg and moved into another building. Southwest Television will broadcast a documentary on this theme on Thursday, April 20, 2000, "In the net of Scientology, Psycho-terrorism without end?" by Hans-Michael Kassel and Jeannette Schweitzer. Former management staff of Scientology Hamburg, they were prepared to give the television cameras an exclusive look into the rather strongly shielded processes in the "Org." In doing that they give first-hand testimony and demonstrate the methods of incremented recruitment, the creation of dependency and the exploitation of members.

Since the 1970s, "Scientology" in Hamburg has been trying to conquer Germany according to the pseudo-religious rules of its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. The high-ranking former members used authentic concepts to tell the SWR team how, under the pretense of life assistance and over the course of years, thousands of "customers," including themselves, were sounded out with the help of primitive lie detectors, exploited, and subjected to humanly contemptuous rituals of punishment. "We were told - and we believed - that it was a matter of spiritual freedom. What it really was a matter of was money, money and more money," reported a former top manager from Scientology Hamburg.
