In the article in the Denver Post, there's this interesting little bit toward the end: Late yesterday Kelley [lawyer representing FACTNet] issued a statement saying it had been determined that not only did the church's Religious Technology Center not return all of the confiscated items, but what it did return were copies, not the originals that were taken. "...the RTC wasn't returning the original hard drives, but copies of the hard drives, with the 'confidential' material deleted," the statement said. from _Most, not all, items seized by Church of Scientology returned_ By George Lane Denver Post Staff Writer And my question remains: If the RTC is in possession of the material belonging to FACTNet, why aren't federal marshals knocking down the doors of the RTC right now? What they have done is akin to providing convicted rapists with membership data for a rape survivor's support group. I only wish I had the faith in the justice system to believe that the responsible parties would be prosecuted for their actions. Lisa.
