Heebie-Jeebie Jentzch is under indictment in Spain for a multitude of
serious offences. As far as I can determine, this is because in Spain,
the upper hierarchy of an organisation is liable for crimes committed
in its name. What an excellent system! Under that type of legislation,
Fishman would never have gone to jail for the frauds committed for
Scientology while he was a member [Milne bait].
BUT, having seen the histrionics of Warren McShane on the witness
stand, sobbing like a lost child because he was afraid to obey a
judge's order, can we look forward to a similar tantrum from Heber
when (if?) the Spanish court convicts him?
Wisely, Spain made Scientology post $1 million bail in respect of
Heber and the other twenty-odd defendants: can we expect to see
Scientology lawyers (Kobby: how's yer spanish?) on the floor of the
court arguing how a Scientologist can't practice his religious beliefs
in a Spanish clink?
When such statements get made, I will be wondering how the likes of
Susan Meister and the others who died under suspicious circumstances
while in the cult, or after they left, are getting on practicing THEIR
I think Spain is going to hit the CoS where it hurts. I hope that
other jurisdictions have the good sense to watch the Spanish example
closely, and deal with Scientology appropriately.
