A Synopsis of all the Helnwein Legal Proceedings

Many other legal proceedings were to follow. A summary of cases is presented, insofar as it is known, of the court proceedings initiated by Gottfried Helnwein in Germany between 1991 and 1996 which contain Helnwein's sworn affirmations:

1. Saarbruecken State Court - file number: unknown, 1994, Gottfried Helnwein vs. "Verein fuer die Interessen tyrannisierter Mitmenschen e.V." and the "Verein fuer Friedenserziehung im Saarland e.V." On March 21, 1994 Gottfried used his "written, sworn affirmation" to apply for a temporary restraining order. On March 31, 1994 he withdrew his application because the court will not decide without an oral hearing. Suspicion of false sworn affirmation by Gottfried Helnwein and trial fraud, because Helnwein is, in fact, a "Class IV Auditor."

2. Bonn State Court - file number: unknown, 1994, defendants same as above, reason same as above. On April 20, 1994 Helnwein managed a "TRO" without an oral hearing. On July 20, 1994 Helnwein withdrew the reason for the "TRO" and waived rights on the order. In both proceedings, Gottfried submitted his sworn affirmation as a basis of credibility. In his TRO of March 14, 1994, he stated, among other things, " ... At no point in time was I or am I a 'Class IV Auditor...'. Proof: basis of a decision of the Frankfurt Superior State Court on accounts of Gunther Traeger, Adelheid Rech-Gesche, the Director of the Scientology Celebrity Center in Duesseldorf, a statement by the Scientology Organization, et al. Suspicion of false sworn affirmation by Gottfried Helnwein and trial fraud, because Helnwein is a "Class IV Auditor."

Frankfurt am Main Superior State Court. file number: 16 U 163 / 95 1995, defendants same as numbers 1 and 2 - same facts and continuation of the proceedings under 1 and 2. Regarding 3 and 4, suspicion of trial fraud (process costs according to who won, etc...) by Gottfried Helnwein, because Helnwein, according to a statement by the Scientology Organization is a "Class IV Auditor," and regarding 4, "destructive gossip" or "libel"

to the detriment of the judge of the 16th appeals chamber of Frankfurt am Main Superior State Court for his public, verbal description of this judge as a "Nazi judge," among other things.

5. Cologne State Court, file number: 28 O 514 / 92 1992, Gottfried and Renate Helnwein vs PRINZ Verlag GmbH, u.a. Application for a temporary restraining order of October 9, 1992 with the sworn affirmation - attachment 4 - by Gottfried Helnwein of October 9, 1992. Items 1 and 2 of the affirmation are false, because Helnwein, together with his wife, donated $80,000 to the War Chest of the Scientologists. Helnwein is an "Operating Thetan." Cologne State Court made the decision of October 9, 1992 based on Helnwein's false affirmation. Suspicion of false sworn affirmation by Gottfried Helnwein and trial fraud, because Helnwein and his wife have been "Patrons" since 1988 and therefore have together "donated" min. $80,000. Besides that, Helnwein has been an "Operating Thetan" since 1974.

6. Heilbronn State Court, file number: 5 O 2548 / 92, 1992, Gottfried Helnwein vs. Hans-Gerold Goebbel and Junge Union Baden W. On October 11, 1992 application for "TRO" with sworn affirmation by Helnwein of October 9, 1992 - attachment 6 - permitted by the court based on credibility of Helnwein because of his oath. Temp. restraining order decided without oral hearing in favor of Helnwein on October 12, 1992. Attachment 6 submitted for the TRO is false in the following items, "I do not have ... an active membership ... in Scientology." That is false. Helnwein has been a member of the Scientology Organization without break since 1972. Indeed, Helnwein was still being described on January 14, 1997 by the Scientology Organization as a persecuted Scientologist. There is no question of there having been a break in membership. The decision was rendered legally effective by the closing statement. Suspicion of false sworn affirmation and trial fraud.

7. Koblenz State Court, file number: 1.O.558 / 91 1991, Gottfried Helnwein vs. Holger Brosius On November 13, 1991, Helnwein submitted the application for a "TRO" and justified it by means of his sworn affirmation of the same day. Without oral hearing on November 14, 1991, the court issued the following temporary order: the following assertion will be avoided: "recruitment attempts by the Scientology Church have taken place on the Burgbrohl of painter Helnwein

Helnwein & Scientology, Lies & Treason by Peter Reichelt, 1997 - Page 331

or attempts to build a sect establishment in its vicinity have been going on for a long time." Nevertheless, both of those statement correspond to fact. Therefore Helnwein's sworn affirmation is false. Suspicion of false sworn affirmation and trial fraud.

8. Koblenz State Court file number: 2.O.502 / 91 1991 Gottfried Helnwein vs. Verlag Gruner and Jahr AG and Co. On November 15, 1991, Helnwein filed the same application as he did under item 7. He then established credibility, in turn, by means of a TRO. On November 19, 1991, the court decided in favor of Helnwein's TRO. This "sworn statement" - attachment 5 - is also false in the following points: "The building in "Eifel" in which I reside with my family is used exclusively as a paint and photo studio. ... It is not used to spread the teachings of any kind of religious society or sect. ... So the assertion that I would want to proselytize to the inhabitants of Brohl Valley is pure nonsense and without any foundation. ... No religious society ... or sect ... is authorized by me to use a picture of my person, art work ... statements or text for advertising purposes. ..." Exactly the reverse is true. Recruitment for Scientology has been done in the castle under Helnwein's direction since 1985. A Scientology Celebrity Center was established in Burgbrohl the beginning of 1985. Countless Scientology publications have been advertising in detail with Helnwein's statements, art work, interviews, photos, etc. from 1974 until today! Suspicion of submitting a false sworn affirmation and trial fraud by Gottfried Helnwein.

9. Koblenz State Court file number: 1 O 341 / 91 1991 Gottfried Helnwein vs Pastor Keden, Reverend Jankowski and Brohltal Verlag. On June 28, 1991, Helnwein filed an application for a temporary restraining order. On July 11, 1991, the parties to the procedure reached a partial settlement. The Brohltal Verlag publishing company was forbidden to again make three specified assertions. However, according to statements by various people close to Helnwein, points 1 and 2 as specified were true. Helnwein again based the credibility of his statement on a TRO. Suspicion of false sworn affirmation and trial fraud by Gottfried Helnwein. This proceeding was the start of a large number of proceedings in which Helnwein began to whitewash his Scientology membership under all circumstances.

In 1988, the Helnwein couple began "auditing" training for "Class 4 Auditors" in "Celebrity Center Duesseldorf - City Office Burgbrohl" (from: "The Auditor" 235, p. 5, 1988)
