A New Zealand newspaper called “Stuff” reports today that “New Zealand bans UK couple over Scientology case”. As the story goes, Robin Scott, 62, and his wife Adrienne, 61, were refused residence in New Zealand based on the fact that they did not let the authorities know about their criminal past. So far, so normal. BUT, it wouldn’t appear on Scientology Myths if not one of the uglier “Myth” would be connected to one of the two, Robin Scott.
As “Stuff” says:
“Mr Scott had served a month in a Danish prison before being deported in 1984. He later agreed he faced a criminal charge but said it was essentially a civil dispute over “industrial espionage”. He had waited outside a Scientology property in Copenhagen while two accomplices wearing the insignia of senior church officials gained entry and obtained teaching materials to use in a business he had set up for students wanting to study Scientology from outside the organization.”
A squirrel. One of those who stole materials that are still circulating as “actual Scientology materials” (most of them are not, but some kind of “interpretation” or “improvement”). Well, it didn’t last long until he showed his true colors. “Stuff” continues:
“In 1996 he was sentenced to four years’ jail, and in 1998 he was sentenced to another two years and six months on the cannabis charges. Mrs Scott was sentenced to 15 months, and later 240 hours’ community work, on the charges she faced but she was accepted for registration as a teacher in New Zealand.”
It’s never too late to get one’s life in order. Robin, start with this.
