French Scientologists Arrested in Italy

Police were alerted by a phone call that reported cries for help coming from a house on Mount Ortobene, near Nuoro. Three French members of the Church of Scientology, suspected of holding a fourth person against their will, were arrested Monday in Nuoro, Sardinia, a local police spokesman told AFP.

  1. Hello, nice blog you have! I’lll make a point to add it to my list of critical links which I post monthly at alt.religion.scientology usenet group.

    Regarduing this kidnapping…I wonder why the mainstream media has not picked up on this terrible situation that you’ve posted about here? In reading the italian reports via google translator, I am finding that the woman appears to have been held against her will because she did not want to follow all the rules of the church, was depressed and was possibly trying to leave. That she was a wealthy woman who had paid money to scientology, according to Italian police, who asked for and obtained financial information from the French gov’t.

    This appears to be another Lisa McPherson situation, where the church detains the person instead of getting them proper medical care. Sadly, Lisa died. Thankfully this woman in the article is alive but I hope her story does not get lost on the information highway. There is much more to it and we can all learn from it.

    Best wishes,
