Scientology actively tries
to stop publication of key information and documents which reveal its totalitarian
nature and the information control on the member-victims.
This cult has even imposed to its victims the installation of a software filter, which blocks them for browsing websites, newsgroups, etc or even reading names of a list of persons (I am included in this list) who publish information, which the cult regard as “antireligious”.
Another way it uses to stop the spread of revealing information, is the threats from lawyers like Helena Kobrin, Ava Paquette, etc that the published documents are copyrighted work and only the cult can sell them to whoever it judges suitable and ready to know these “truths”.
In this new website (as well as in my previous one, but the material here are much more documentative as you will see), I include documents and other information primarily for Greek citizens and the Greek authorities, in order to evaluate the Scientology dangers. Of course, all are available for any other Internet user.
This is one of the statements from Katerina Diamandara, Scientology President in Greece, during the June 3rd, 2002 “PROFILE” program at the EXTRA Channel TV Station. Here are some photos from her and the overall panel:
Diamandara actually said that OT-3 and NOTs were not Scientology documents and that I manufactured them and attribute them to Scientology. Two of the participants, Mr. Dimitris Iatropoulos columnist and poet with the lawyer and writer Mr. Dimitris Sergios, started a conversation regarding the contents of my book ("NEW ORDER MERCENARIES The activities of extremist parareligions and SCIENTOLOGY").
The following photos show Iatropoulos and Sergios (next to Diamandara):

Apart from the seized documents from the 1995 Prosecutor raids at Scientology’s KEFE offices, they were referring to the “sacred scriptures” of the cult, OT-3 and NOTS, which are included in my book.
They (mainly Mr. Sergios
who was quoting my book) started revealing OT-3 content with Xenu, the
Galactic Confederation, etc and the cult President was shouting she does
not want to hear it, she is not interested in my views, etc. The relevant
text follows. This is one and
this is the second mp3
file with the conversation, while this is one
and this is the second animated gif
Iatropoulos: Those mentioned in Bosnakoudis’ book or circulating in any case, regarding the philosophical basis of the story, that somewhere was an explosion, that Earth is a planet … [interrupted]
Diamandara: I have never read them, I consider them science fiction
Iatropoulos: Are you serious ? (!!!)
Diamandara: I am absolutely serious
Sergios: This is a text from Hubbard himself
Diamandara: I understand what you are saying, but these are what Mr. Bosnakoudis is saying
Sergios: “The head of the Galactic Confederation” [interrupted]
Diamandara: Yes, yes
Sergios: Read it
No you will not read it PLEASE, because I do not want to hear the view
of Mr. Bosnakoudis, I do not want to hear Bosnakoudis’ views … I do not
want us to see this topic sir.
Iatropoulos: In our people, there are a lot of customers for galactic fiction, tales, which are very exciting
Diamandara: Mr. Bosnakoudis sells them, we don’t sell them
Iatropoulos: Is it pirated [the Greek word is klepsitipo] ?
Diamandara: Of course
Iatropoulos: Is it a fabrication ?
Sergios: Text of the “Operating Thetan number 3” as Hubbard wrote it [interrupted]
Diamandara: Mr. Sergios [voices] I understand you [voices] Mr. Bosnakoudis [interrupted]
Iatropoulos: Does madam President state that the text is fake ?
Sergios: But, these are not Mr. Bosnakoudis’ views, there are images of documents inside. Do you see them ?
Diamandara: These texts, Mr. Bosnakoudis included, are not our documents
Filling suit was a one way road for me. If you say all these against a journalist and he just leaves them fly away, his credibility and reliability fly away as well. During the preparation of the criminal and civil suits I filled against Scientology for defamation, the Scientology lawyer Ava Paquette sent me the following email-present:

The nots.zip file also included the OT-3 text (not in images, just simple ASCII text). I replied, (among others) by asking to clear out among them if I fabricated the texts or if they are true. After all, Diamandara was the Scientology representative in Greece, she was obviously real and not a creature of cyberspace, while Paquette like Kobrin were existing only as email originators in cyberspace.
Finally, Scientology paid me a good compensation for the defamation and signed an out-of-court-settlement document, stating they do not say that I did anything illegal or immoral or unethical. They did not want to get exposed in Court.
