Scientology:
Petition to US Government: examination of failure to investigate
CIFS
October 1, 2011

Source

Ex-scientology groups see this petition as another step in raising awareness of officially unrecognised cult-like abuses. They encourage everyone concerned about this issue to join the petition.

The petition states that despite many hundreds of personal complaints of harm and abuse, the US government has failed to investigate and prosecute the Church of Scientology.
 
 
undue favor and pressure brought by lawyers for Scientology

 

It is also alleged that the IRS, the taxation arm of the Government, has evidence of tax-exempt funds being misused for personal benefits. Such violations would justify sanctions under the law.

The petition is accessed on the Whitehouse website where people can lodge their support to it. Participation is open to any person over the age of 13 years.

If over 5,000 responses are received within 30 days, the Govenment is bound to give a considered response to the petition.

You can join the petition here.

The full text of the petition is quoted below.

 

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
EXAMINE THE GOVERNMENT’S FAILURE TO INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY CRIME, FRAUD AND ABUSE.

WHEREAS, the FBI has 300+ recent complaints of Scientology crimes and atrocities - human trafficking, forced abortions and civil rights violations, and the IRS has evidence of private inurement violations justifying INTERMEDIATE SANCTIONS, and existing evidence on hand meets RICO statutes, WE REQUEST that the White House investigate and employ a Special Prosecutor to:

EXAMINE why, with such an abundance of RICO evidence of Scientology being a corrupt and criminal entity, no law enforcement agency has moved forward;

INVESTIGATE undue favor and pressure brought by lawyers for Scientology leader David Miscavige to stop the investigations;

EXAMINE why around the world the “church” is investigated as a criminal entity while the U.S. Government does nothing?
