I have just been shown a letter that seems to be part of a harassment
campaign against the secretary of FAIR.
FAIR (Family Action, Information and Resource) publishes a newsletter,
keeps archives of cult-related material and gives interviews to the press.
An open letter has been sent to nine committee members, supposedly by "a
concerned member", but I am told that there is reason to believe it was
sent by a scientologist. The letter viciously criticises the committee for
alleged financial and organisational mismanagement and alleges that the
committee is dissatisfied with Ms Tyrrell's work.
What is disturbing is that the letter *includes Ms Tyrrell's home address*
and has been cc'ed to the following organisations:
The Unification Church
The Jehovas' Witnesses
The Church of Scientology
Central London Church of Christ
Worldwide Church of God
School of Economic Science
[typo's as in original]
The writer claims to know Ms Tyrrell's address on the basis of "informed
and substantiated rumours, backed up by in-depth enquiries". It is not
said who made these enquiries. The letter seems to be intended to cause
disruption within FAIR and to show how well they have been infiltrated.
