Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be
considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The
Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes
the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the
questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to
those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

I work at the Helsinki Police Criminal Investigating Departement in
Helsinki. I investigate economic crimes and crimes that involves the use
of a computers.
Helsinki Police Department is the local police.
Interpol is not a policeorganization. Most of the countries in the world
have joined Interpol and therefore assign a part of its organization to
be called Interpol. Interpol does not investigate crimes nore excecute
any police duties. It only sends mail from one country to another and
If I want to send a letter to a law enforcement agency in another
country, I send it to our local Interpol, that sends it to the other
country and to its Interpol agency, that in turn sends it ot the local
Interpol never has an active part in investigating crimes.
This Scientology case started on day when a lawyer from a very respected
law office contacted us and said he was representing the Church of
Scientology and that he had in his office a privat investigator from the
United States that had come here to investigate on behalf of the church.
They came to my office in Helsinki and told me that someone had
penetrated in to a computer in Los Angeles and taken secret information
form it. The computer was the property of the Church of Scientology.
The investigator had found out that the penetrator had come into the
computer from Finland and their last information about the person ended
at the Anon Penet computer in Helsinki.
I was asked by the Church of Scientology to start an investigation
because a crime had been committed. They told me that Johan Helsingius at
Eunet Finland did not give them the information they needed, the identity
of the person who had committed the crime.
We took the case under consideration with my boss Harri Pulkkinen.
He has the authority to issue a search warrant by law in Finland.
A search warrant can be issued if there are reasons to believe that a
crime has been committed, a crime that you can get at least a 6 months
prison sentence for, and that there are reasons to believe that evidence
in that particular case can be found in the place where the search will
A crime had been reported, evidence to solve the crime could be found.
The only thing we could do was to get the information from the Anon
server. A search warrant was issued and it was served to Johan
Helsingius. Without us searching the hole computer, Helsingius gave us
the information we wanted.
When I got the information from Helsingius, I could see that the crime
had been committed from the United States. I had seen a document that
showed me that there was an investigation about the same case in Los
As there was an investigation going on in the United States and it the
crime had been commited from there we decided to end our investigation. I
wrote a letter ot our Interpol and asked them to forward our findings to
the police in Los Angeles.
I gave the results of our investigation to the person who had reported
the crime, the finnish lawyer.
That was it. I do not know what has happened after that in Los Angeles to
the investigation there. Police organizations do not report to other
countries their results.
If someone reports a crime we must act. We do not have the wright to
refuse an investigation if there are reasons to believe, that a crime has
been committed, if we did we would end up in jail.–––––
As we the investigation has come an end, all documents are public.
Anyone has the wright to get copies. You only have to pay s small sum for
copying them. I cannot send them by the Internet but if someone in
Finland got them from our office, that person could send them to everyone
on the net.
