(Although this was written in the '80's, it still holds true today, if not
more so, from reports I've heard on DM. Michael Pattinson re-posted this as
one of the 100 Classics a few years ago. Time to re-post them now for anyone
who missed them, or never read them).

Continuing the Comm Ev called on DM in 1984, here is the
order that was published by the committee at that time.



8 June 1984

Ethics Order 1 Int
All Scientologists


DAVID MISCAVIGE of Los Angeles is hereby declared a
Suppressive Person.

This is in accordance with the Findings & Recommendations of the Comm Ev on
Miscavige, conducted at the request of the OT Committee WorldWide. The
Findings & Recommendations are available for public view at the OT
Committees, and at ceratin Delivery Centres.

The Interested Party failed to appear, nor did the Committee receive any
evidence in defence of Miscavige. In the interest of Justice, the Comittee
nevertheless proceeded, despite the recommendation in HCOPL 7Sep63: "Refusal
or failure of an Interested Party to appeaar results in a recommendation of
the full penalty possible in the dase for the Interested Party."

In June 1981, Miscavige - as Chairman of the All Clear Unit - forged a
dispatch purporting to come from LRH. This dispatch removed Diane
Voegerding, the then SO SMO Int and Miscavige's senior, from post. This was
an act of Mutiny.

David Miscavige was a signatoryof the splinter group RTC on 1 January 1982.
There is no evidence that this group was authorized by LRH. The "legal"
documents transferring Scn Trademarks from LRH to RTC bear a forged
signature, and in fact Miscavige notarized these documents althuogh he was a
party to one side of the "agreement." Further, re the forged LRH signature,
according to two independent experts, John Swanson and Irmgard Wassard,
Miscavige was a party to this forgery.

No HCOPL exists authorizing RTC. RTC has engaged in the perversion of Scn
practices. Miscavige was personally involved in the gang SecChecking of Jay
Hurwitz, then CO LA Day, at Gilman Hot Springs in October 1982. This
violates HCOB 30Nov78 Confessional Procedure, which states: "If the PC is
not in session, you won't get the withholds... A wrong or challenging
auditor attitude can throw the scene off as there is a destroyed comm

During October of 1982, Miscavige assaulted John Aczel and Roger Barnes at
Gilman Hot Springs, according to testimony from Jay Hurwitz.

On 17 Oct 82, Miscavige verbally declared top Mission Holder Martin Samuels.
There is a photograph of him doing so in the Church publication "Sea Org
Expansion News." Kingsley Wimbush and Dean Stokes were also verbally
declared at this meeting. This violates HCOPL 16May80 Ethics, Suppressive
Acts, Suppression of Scientology and Scientologists, which states: "All
investigations must include confronting the accused with the accusation and
where feasible the accuser, BEFORE any action is decided upon or taken." It
is worthy of note that Samuels and Wimbush were, at the time of their
"declares," the two most successful Mission Holders in the world, by actual
stats. HCOPL 15Aug67 states "One of the ways an SP works to stop an activity
or halt an affluence is to pick out key personnel and spread wild, false and
alarming stories about them."

The "Running Program," where senior executives were punished by being forced
to run around a tree in desert heat for up to 12 hours a day, is another
example of perverted tech authorized by Miscavige. This happened from
December 1982 to the summer of 1983. Amongst those on the "program" were
David and Merrill Mayo. David suffered an unhealthy loss of weight, physical
debilitation and the loss of teeth, whilst on the program.

At the San Francisco Mission Holders Conference on 17 October 1982, David
Miscavige made scornful comments concerning Scientologists in good standing.
For example, "These bribe days are over. These squirrel days are over." (See
SO ED 2104 7Nov82.) Miscavige also threatened Mission Holders with criminal
prosecution. This violates HCOPL 18Apr70 Ethics and Franchise, which states
"It is not our policy to harshly handle Franchises... Almost without
exception, Franchise Holders are fine, willing people and we trust them to
do right."

Miscavige allowed publication of the SO ED of August 1983 Story of a
Squirrel. This was an attempt to destroy the authority and reputation of one
of the highest officers of Scn - the man chosen by LRH as his technical

Under Miscavige's direction, civil suits have been brought against
Scientologists Eddie Mace, Marian van der Linde, Bernard Wimbush, Don Hills,
Lawrence West, Robin Scott, Ron Lawley and Morag Bellmaine.

According to HCOB 23Dec71R The No-Interference Area, "It is vitally, vitally
important that one gets any person who has gone clear through his next
required steps onto OT1 and through OT3 rapidly." HCOPL 23Sep64 Policies:
Dissemination and Programmes, states "One week's process (25 hours) should
cost an average month's pay." By violating this policy, the Bridge has
become unobtainable and Scientologists have been placed at risk.

Under Miscavige's directioin, almost 2000 SP declares have been issued, most
of these without Comm Ev. Many senior executives had top auditors have been
declared and removed -for example: Diane Voegerding, Gale Irwin and John
Nelson, all ex-COs CMO - Bill Franks and Kerry Gleason, both exED INTs -
Emille Gilbert, exCO Canada - Ron Hopkins, exCO UK -Murray Chopping, Leon
Steinburg, Merrill Mayo, David Mayo, Alex Gerber, Brian Livingston, Mike
Mauerer, Ron Shafran and Alex Sibersky, all Class XIIs.)

1. Mutiny.

2. Organizing a splinter group (RTC) which takes and perverts Scn materials
or practices, in whole or in part, and calling it Scientology.

3. Public statements against Scientology or Scientologists but not to

9. Willful misapplication.

10. Bringing civil suit against Scientologists without first calling the
matter to the attention of the Ethics Officer.

11. Organizing a splinter group (RTC) to confuse people about the true
beliefs and practices of Scientology and to deceive them into considering
that they will be able to study part or all of Scientology and receive
standard pastoral counselling from the splinter group.

Insufficient evidence was found on the following charges:

Receiving money, favors or encouragement to suppress Scientology or

Pronouncing Scientologists guilty of the practice of standard Scientology or
of the practice of the religion of Scientology.

Miscavige was found guilty of the following CRIMES:

1. Placing Scientology and Scientologists at risk.

2. Following illegal policies knowing them to be contrary to those issued by
the International Board (and LRH.)

3. Not reporting flagrant departures from the International Board (and LRH)

4. Permitting the organization to collapse.

5. Condoning circumstances and offenses capable of bringing the organization
to collapse.

6. Neglect of responsibility resulting in catasrophe.

7. Being a Potential Trouble Source without reporting it or taking action.

8. Using Scientology harmfully.

9. Using a local Scientology title to set aside policies from the
International Board (and LRH.)

10. Instigating a local power push against a senior.

11. Spreading destructive rumors about senior Scientologists

12. Falsifying a communication from a senior.

13. Causinig severe disturbances which have resulted in disrepute.

14. Holding Scientology materials or policies up to ridicule.

15. Condoning the suppressioin of the word Scientology in its use and

The Committee also found Miscavige guilty of the following additional

1. Forgery.

2. Fraud.

3. Assault.

David Miscavige is assigned a condition of Treason. All of his certificates
and awards are suspended. His is dismissed from all posts and titles in any
Scientology organization.

And Scientologist supporting Miscavige's usurpation of power is guilty of
the High Crime of Muthiny. No auditor should give him auditing until such
time as he has successfully completed his Ethics conditions and made
thorough amends for the damage he has caused. As the Independent Field does
not practice disconnection, no restraint is made upon communication with
Miscavige. However, it is recommended that he be referred to a competant
Ethics terminal, as he has proved to be highly enturbulative. Reference
should be made to HCOPL 16May80 Ethics, Suppressive Acts, Suppressiion of
Scientology and Scientologists, before dealing with Miscavige.
