On Monday evening, 9 October, at approximately 7.00 pm, Malcolm
Nothling, a veteran critic of the Church of Scientology, received a
telephone call in Johannesburg, South Africa. He said the caller was
male, and had a Zimbabwean (Rhodesian) accent. The caller said that
based on the results of the Gerry Armstrong hearing, a planned action
to bomb a Scientology Org (he did not specify which Org) was going to
occur within the next ten days. He asked Malcolm if he wished to help
with the planning of the operation.
Malcolm stated that while he can understand the way the person feels,
he completely disassociates himself from this type of action, and
does not support it in any way.
I immediately asked Malcolm if he had considered that this was
possible entrapment, and he said no, he firmly believes the call was
authentic. Malcolm has a sound knowledge of the intelligence community
in Southern Africa, and is able to judge for himself.
Malcolm asked that I relay this information to the Internet.
A new level of operation against Scientology is going to occur as a
result of the Church's actions against its detractors. I feared this
would happen, and I cannot be a part of it. I have resigned from the
Board of Directors of FACTNET, and I withdraw from the conflict.
