Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

They came to my office in Helsinki and told me that someone had penetrated in to a computer in Los Angeles and taken secret information form it. The computer was the property of the Church of Scientology. >I don't know much about Interpol. Do they normally respond to non >law enforcement requests? Do you have any way of determining who >the raid request came from? > Interpol is not a policeorganization. Most of the countries in the world have joined Interpol and therefore assign a part of its organization to be called Interpol. Interpol does not investigate crimes nore excecute any police duties. It only sends mail from one country to another and keep registers. If I want to send a letter to a law enforcement agency in another country, I send it to our local Interpol, that sends it to the other country and to its Interpol agency, that in turn sends it ot the local police. Interpol never has an active part in investigating crimes. >Did you turn the name you aquired from Penet over to the Scientologists >directly? > When I got the information from Helsingius, I could see that the crime had been committed from the United States. I had seen a document that showed me that there was an investigation about the same case in Los Angeles. As there was an investigation going on in the United States and it the crime had been commited from there we decided to end our investigation. I wrote a letter ot our Interpol and asked them to forward our findings to the police in Los Angeles. I gave the results of our investigation to the person who had reported the crime, the finnish lawyer. >If you have been following this story, you may know that the person >known as -AB- was located by the Church of Scientology. This person >can no longer be located, and there is wide speculation that he was >killed. > I really have not heard anything about what has happened after I left tha case. That was it. I do not know what has happened after that in Los Angeles to the investigation there. Police organizations do not report to other countries their results. >As far as I know, noone blames the Finland Police or yourself for >what happened.

I hope you have som use of my answer. Kaj Malmberg Helsinki Police -------------------- I certainly appreciate Detective Malmberg coming forward with this information. It seems from these reports that Interpol was involved only after the fact. Since Julf is there, and rather interested in the case, perhaps he could pick up the report? I would be happy to forward the cost to Julf, plus something for his time translating and posting to this group. It would also be of great interest to know the name of the investigator CoS sent to Finland, and just exactly who got the report routed through Interpol after the name was obtained. Keith Henson
