Subject: *** The Emmons Report: Investigative Summary

There's no name on this document from the Clearwater Police Department, but I assume that it was authored by Lt. Ray Emmons, since that is what I requested. It has been scanned and OCR'd, but not thoroughly edited, so beware the typo's.




The following is a very brief generalized summary concerning the investigative effort employed by the Clearwater Police Department regarding the organization known as Scientology.

Some aspects of this report over periods of time and portions of the investigation in which members of the U.S. Attorney's Office, The F.B.I., The Attorney General's Office of the State of Florida, The State Attorney's Office in Pinellas County, The Sheriff's Office of Pinellas County and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement were contacted or involved. The agencies mentioned above were involved in the investigation with the Clearwater Police Department between 21 March 1983 and 28 February 1984.

The investigation took on many facets, the first being examination, collating and deciphering many Scientology documents.

Another phase of the investigation was interviewing witnesses and collecting new materials and evidence.

The cultivation of persons both in and out of the Scientology organization was a priority item.

All three of these phases, the documentation process, the collection of new evidence, the cultivation of sources was to some degree accomplished.

Most of the documents were deciphered in preparation for court presentation until it was learned by this writer that the documents in question would not be used in court proceedings due to their complexity and difficulty in court procedural presentation.

Two very important witnesses were interviewed concerning fraudulent statements made about the Founder's background biography and financial transactions. Both of these witnesses testified to the incorporation of shell corporations designed to pay L. Ron Hubbard exorbitant large amounts of monies. The witnesses testified to being in possession of documents and evidence to support their allegations of unlawful inurement to L. Ron Hubbrd. These documents are currently under seal in a Los Angeles Court. The presiding judge in the case in which the documents were sealed laid down guidelines by which certain investigative bodies could retrieve these documents. The Assistant State Attorney assigned to the Scientology case determined the documents in question were not possible to obtain in accordance to the criteria for discovery set down by the presiding judge in the court case in Los Angeles. This State Attorney determined that at the very least a grand jury would have to be impaneled to show the presiding judge in the Scientology vs. Armstrong case, the need for law enforcement to obtain the documents in question.

This investigator raised several questions concerning the Assistant State Attorney's rendering and interpretation of Judge Cole's criteria for 'Discovery' to law enforcement. This investigator called the attorney representing Gerald Armstrong in the Scientology vs. Armstrong case to gee her opinion and procedural guidelines in obtaining the documents in question. The lawyer in Los Angeles, Julia Dragojevic, told this investigator a motion would have to be entered into the court system showing a need for law enforcement in obtaining the documents. Miss Dragojevic further stated since the State Attorney's Office has taken a sworn statement showing the content of the documents and attendant criminal violations, the motion to obtain the documents would probably stand a good chance of being entertained in a positive fashion.

This investigator relayed this information on to the Assistant State Attorney assigned to the Scientology case.

This assistant told this investigator a motion filed by their office to obtain the documents in question would let the Scientologists know the State Attorney is interested in these documents. The assistant further stated in all probability, a motion filed by the local State Attorney in Pinellas County would require several trips to Los Angeles defending the right of the Pinellas State Attorney to possess copies of these documents. These documents were never obtained by the Pinellas County State Attorney's Office.

It should be noted: This investigator sent the instruction letter from Mrs. Dragojevic concerning the obtainment of the documents in question in the Scientology vs. Armstrong case, to the Ontario Provincial police. On the 26th of February 1984, I was instructed by Det. Sgt. Al Campini, of the Ontario Provincial Police, their legal counsel in the Scientology case was flying to Los Angeles and entering a motion to obtain the incriminating evidentary documents from the court. These documents will be part of the investigation and ultimately the court presentation in the case of the Province of Ontario vs. Scientology court case.

A discussion of the Canadian investigation will be included in this summary in a later portion.

The investigative task force housed at the State Attorney's Office from March 21, 1983 through August 1983 which investigated the activities mentioned in the preceeding pages of this sunrmary, ultimately was phased out as productivity was at a standstill. The documents in the Armstrong case could not or would not be obtained, the documents explaining Scientology practices and policies were not going to be used in court due their complexity and the other investigators assigned to this task force were constantly being assigned to other assignments not relating to Scientology.

During this time frame, this investigator contacted representatives from the Attorney General's Office of the State of Florida regarding the Scientology investigation. These attorney's reviewed the documents and testimonies of witnesses and came to the conclusion any investigation of Scientology should remain on a local level or a federal level. The attorney's from the Attorney General's Office would be willing to cooperate in helping the local State Attorney's Office with any civil RICO litigation the State Attorney might want. In the discussions this investigator had with these representatives they emphasized the complexity of the Scientology organization, the immense amount of litigation any prosecution lawyer might encounter, and the amount of work and manpower required to prove fraudulent activities. After this investigator explained to the Attorney General lawyers the scope of financial fraudulent activities involved, these lawyers made reference to the tremendous undertaking a financial investigation would take in form of manpower, accountants and lawyers. The Attorney General lawyers told me if more traditional type RICO violations could be proven such as murder, extortion, etc., the investigation would be on better standing.

This investigator then consulted with representatives of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Tampa concerning the Scientology organization.

At the two meetings with the representatives of the U.S. Attorney's Office, one of these meetings, City Attorney Thomas Bustin was present, the representatives were not too optimistic about federal involvement in the investigation. The federal officials emphasized an investigative undertaking involving the Scientology organization would have to be staffed by 2 or more lawyers, accountants, and several investigators. The investigation would tie up several people for a long extended period of time.

When this investigator told the federal officials Scientology is a massive fraud which involved several shell corporations designed to hide money flows out of the country, the federal officials told Mr. Bustin not to be too optimistic about federal involvement. The federal officials told Mr. Bustin and myself, financial investigations of this magnitude involve a great deal of court appearances by the prosecution legal staff regarding subpeonas and bank records. The federal officials continued to state the Scientology organization uses the court systems as a tool by issuing subpoenas for legal staff in various courts across the country in an attempt to keep prosecution legal staffs tied up in court appearances and "wear them down". The federal government did not want to get entangled in court appearances throughout this country that were time consuming and costly. The federal officials also emphasized any prosecutor who takes on Scientology would have that case alone for 3 to 4 years. The inference this investigator gathered by this statement is that careers would come to a standstill for the period of the investigation into Scientology.

All the prosecution staffs of the State Attorney's Office, the Attorney General's Office of the State of Florida and the U.S. Attorney's Office were cautious about the Ist Amendment rights and did not want to approach anything in the Scientology investigation which might be deemed as religious.

Federal prosecutors told this writer any investigation of Scientology would have to include as members of the investigative staff 2 to 3 lawyers, 2 to 3 accountants and several investigators. The federal attorney's told both Mr. Bustin and myself it was doubtful the superiors in Washington would approve of any such expenditures at this time. The federal prosecutor told usr Mr. Bustin and myself, he would be in contact with us at a later date with an answer to the federal involvement with the Scientology case.

It should be noted: The federal prosecutor conducting this meeting was extremely critical of the investigative effort employed by the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office regarding the Scientology investigation. He particularly took note of the fact, a lawyer or lawyers were not assigned on a fulltime basis, no accountants and a limited investigative staff was operating.

Also this prosecutor did not give Mr. Bustin and myself a definite NO as to federal involvement in the investigation of Scientology. He did, however, state for us not to be too optimistic concerning federal involvement. I told the prosecutor I was intending to travel to Ontario, Canada and review the documents and case preparation put together by the Ontario Provincial Police and the Ontario Crown Attorneys in their case against Scientology. The prosecutor told me not to bother with the trip to Canada as it probably wouldn't make any difference in the federal government's position on Scientology. During all the meetings conducted with the federal prosecutor, this investigator emphasized the need for federal involvement due to the tremendous amounts of monies being transferred from one Scientology corporate shell to another Scientology corporate shell and ultimately to foreign banks. The Clearwater Police Department does not have the capability to trace and track monies throughout this country and foreign countries.

The last meeting with the federal prosecution staff of the U.S. Attorney's Office, Florida Federal Middle District was held on 29 September 1983. To date we (meaning any official of the City of Clearwater) have not received a reply from the U.S. Attorney's concerning federal involvement in a total investigation into the Scientology organization and its attendant fraudulent practices.



On or about 20 December 1983, I was contacted by a private attorney concerning the following information:

The private attorney told me he had a witness who could provide information concerning a covert operation involving a federal judge. The private lawyer further stated the Scientology organization paid in excess of $200,000 to a private investigator to conduct the operation. The purpose of the operation was to entrap and compromise a federal judge who was presiding over a federal civil case.

I contacted a federal prosecutor concerning the information provided to me by the private lawyer. The prosecutor was aware of the situation and was also contacted by the private lawyer.

The federal prosecutor told this investigator his office would be handling the investigation.

Apparently after the reporting of the first covert operation involving the federal judge, it was discovered the Scientology organization had conducted another covert operation involving the same private investigators and involving local businessmen: refer to attached newspaper accounts.

This investigator contacted the federal prosecutor involved in the federal judge case and asked him if the City of Clearwater could conduct the second investigation concerning covert operations involving Scientology operatives and local Clearwater businessmen. The prosecutor told this investigator both covert operations conducted by Scientology would be investigated by the U.S. Xttorney's Office with the aid of the F.B.i.

The reason this investigator asked the federal prosecutor about local participation stems from the news article concerning the covert operation against the local businessmen. in this news article, attachment A, the lawyer for the Scientology organization made the following comments:

"Johnson acknowledged, however, that church attorneys paid detectives to uncover what the church believed was a City conspiracy to deprive the church of its rights."

Three private investigators used a yacht and the cover story about the wealthy foreign investors to carry out their inquiry, he said.

Johnson would not confirm or deny whether the yacht contained hidden microphones and cameras but said no drugs or prostitutes were on board.

The investigators successfully obtained evidence of a conspiracy said Johnson, a former Hillsborough County State Attorney.

Based on this news article and the fact the attorney for the Scientology organization would not confirm or deny the use of monitoring equipment in an attempt to obtain evidence of a community conspiracy this investigator felt violations of Florida State Statutes, Chapter 934, entitled, Security of Communications, may have been violated.

This investigator contacted an investigator from the State Attorney's Office who made the same inquiry as this writer to the federal prosecution staff. The investigator told this writer the U.S. Attorney's Office would handle the investigation in total including the covert operation against the local businessmen.

This investigator then called the F.B.I. agent who was assigned the investigation. This agent toldthis investigator he would be out of town and would not start the investigation until he returned. This conversation took place on the Ist of February 1984.

On the Ist of March, this investigator was contacted by the F.B.I. agent assigned to the federal judge case. The F.B.I. agent told this investigator he would begin interviews of persons involved in the covert operations. I asked the agent if his investigation would include interviewing the local businessmens' case as well as the federal judge case. The agent wasn't sure if his investigation would encompass the local businessmen. It was apparent by the agent comments no investigative work was conducted from the time the covert operations were reported until the Ist of March 1984. This time frame is from around 20 December 1983 or a total of 70 days.

On or about the 7th of February 1984, this investigator cultivated a potential witness who could testify to large sums of monies going to L. Ron Hubbard through shell corporations. This investigator contacted a federal prosecutor concerning the witness's possible testimony. The prosecutor gave this investigator permission to interview the witness and report back to him any information relating to the covert operation involving the federal judge.

This investigator contacted an Assistant State Attorney from the Pinellas State Attorney's Office. The witness's lawyer wanted a Contract of Immunity for the witness in exchange for her cooperation. After many days, the State Attorney's Office agreed to giving the witness a verbal statement which would constitute a Contract of Immunity for the testimony she would give.

The witness came to Clearwater and testified from 25th of February through the 27th of February concerning practices and activities that are criminal in nature. Attending this meeting were officers and an accountant from the Ontario Provincial Police Department and the Ontario Crown Attorney's Office. The witness testified to the following information:

L. Ron Hubbard is still in control of virtually every facet of Scientology management and organizational command despite the fact he supposedly resigned from church operations in 1966.

L. Ron Hubbard rules the Scientology world through a handful of selected subordinates.

The statements from top management of Scientology is that the organization is a business not a religion.

In 1972 a shell corporation was designed and enacted whereby L. Ron Hubbard would receive massive funds from the Church of Scientology accounts for foreign students coming to Clearwater, Florida to further their Scientology studies.

(As can be shown by this statement: This practice innuring L. Ron Hubbard has taken another avenue. Both witnesses interviewed in March 1983 concerning financial gains by L. Ron Hubbard testified to shell corporations designed for only one purpose, payment to L. Ron Hubbard.)

The witness testifying in February of 1984 further told investigators and prosecutors I. Ron Hubbard was given the title of Consultant and Director and he billed one of the shell corporations for services he did not render.

L. Ron Hubbard maintains staff persons of the Church of Scientology for his own personal needs and projects. These staff members were paid by the Church of Scientology and whatever profits from the projects and services were derived by L. Ron Hubbard. The Church of Scientology of California paid expenses for:

A. Consulting services by L. Ron Hubbard. B. The staff and household expenses of L. Ron Hubbard and his family as well as to his personal office for research projects.

C. The cost of research assisted by Church of Scientology personnel while aboard the ship "Apollo"

D. Facilitating L. Ron Hubbard in getting books and materials published through church and the publications organization.

E. Numerous projects initiated by L. Ron Hubbard, which then had to be substantiated in board minutes and funded. Such projects included:

1. Security advise and security checking the government of Morocco.

2. Exploration (never conducted).

3. Musical research and the creation of records.

4. Movies -- Director's fees and script writing.

5. Tape cassettes


Non-U.S. Scientology "Churches" forward funds to RRF along the finance network.

A Flag banking officer was appointed in almost every Scientology "Org" and was paid locally. The bank officer would forward monies collected from students into a Sea Org Reserve accounts. These Sea Org Reserve accounts were represented to Scientology members to be just that, reserve accounts for the use in furthering Scientology. In actuality, most of the monies deposited in the Sea Org accounts were then transferred to shell corporations and then to L. Ron Hubbard's personal accounts in Luxemburg and Liechtenstein.

Exorbitant billings were made to local orgs from Flag Headquarters (Clearwater, Florida) to facilitate more payments to "Sea Org Reserve" accounts and ultimately to L. Ron Hubbard.

The shell corporations were made quite prosperous by these payments "up the lines" for services never rendered.

Example of how the financial network operates:

A public Scientologist may wish to go to "Flag", the Scientology training headquarters, to take what would be considered in the Scientology world, the creme of services and courses. They would pay in advance at their local Scientology orgs for the trip to Flag and these monies would go into the shell corporations accounts while the services were delivered by the Church of Scientology members and staff. The Church of Sciencology would have to absorb all expenses of training and services while L. Ron Hubbard reaps most of the proceeds.

The amount of money delivered to L. Ron Hubbard's personal accounts is around $200 million dollars.

The witness further stated the practice of routing monies through shell corporations to L. Ron Hubbard exists today. The names of the shell corporations have changed but the "game" is still the same.

The witness can also testify to being in charge of an operation whose duties were to justify payments to L. Ron Hubbard, manufactured back billings for services not rendered. The duties of the witness also included finding ways to legitimize fraudulent activities.

This investigator is currently in contact with attorneys for potential witnesses who can provide information concerning covert operations conducted by the Scientology at the bidding of the Scientology management including its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. Other potential witnesses can verify financial transactions to L. Ron Hubbard, some of which took place in Clearwater, Florida.

Potential witnesses can provide not only verbal evidence but in some cases documentation and tape recordings in which the management of Scientology openly discuss fraudulent transfers of monies and discuss these operations in these terms.


The Ontario Provincial Police Department and the Ontario Crown Attorney's Office begin the investigation into the Scientology organization and more specifically in the practices of the Scientology organization in Toronto in 1980 with the following allocation of manpower.

The investigation into Scientology began in 1980 with the assignment of 6 fulltime police officers.

In February of 1981 another fulltime police officer was assigned.

In March of 1983, a search warrant was conducted utilizing 129 police officers. 904 boxes of materials were seized. Much of this material deals with financial transactions which pass through Flag Headquarters in Clearwater, Florida on its way to L. Ron Hubbard's private bank coffers.

Two more fulltime police officers were assigned to the investigation on a fulltime basis in March of 1983.

Five more police officers were assigned to the investigative process in March of 1983.

In August of 1983, 7 more police officers were assignedto the investigation.

In July of 1983 an accounting firm was retained: 4 accountants assigned cost $250,000.

The total cost of the Canadian operation is unknown at this time. Total officers assigned to the Scientology investigation:

        15 Officers 
	3 Supervisors 
	4 Accountants 
	4 Crown Attorneys

The thrust of the Canadian investigation is to prove the Scientology organization is a massive criminal enterprise designed to fraudulently induce adherents to take Scientology courses and monies for these courses and services are received by a few top Scientologists, notably L. Ron Hubbard.

To show L. Ron Hubbard is not entitled to any fees for trademarks and copyrights as he resigned from the Scientology organization in 1966.

To show L. Ron Hubbard collects fees for services not rendered through shell corporations. These amounts of monies represent in excess of $200 million dollars.

The adherents of Scientology are lead to believe monies paid into the Scientology organization are for the furtherance of Scientology. The adherents are not told L. Ron Bubbard receives about 50% of all monies generated in the Scientology world.

The Canadian authorities have actively investigated the financial flows of monies and the practices of Scientology since 1980. Most of their investigation centers around the Flag Headquarters in Clearwater, Florida.


The future investigation of the Scientology organization is contingent on a variety of variables:

1. Any investigation of Scientology has to be a joint federal, state and local endeavor, with the proper number of investigators assigned. Equipment, clerical staff and professional help such as lawyers and accountants are extremely important.

2. The total staff committed to any investigative effort would have to be trained in Scientology practices, policies and procedures.

3. The selection of an investigative staff would be based on each individual assigned having demonstrated by past experience a total commitment in tackling virtually impossible ventures. The persons assigned to this type of investigation would have to have a scholarly background and on an individual basis, willing to take on extreme challenges. It cannot be overemphasized that an investigation such as Scientology must be staffed with the proper amount of people who possess the expertise in the various aspects of investigative/prosecution steps, or the investigation of this organization is merely prefunctionary in nature.

4. Money should be no object. If the scope of the investigation of Scientology is predicated on a limited budget expenditure that is conservative, the investigation should not conrnence.

5. The U.S. Constitution was conceived to protect the citizens of this country, and not for individuals to hide behind. Determinations concerning the possible court challenges and problems involving First Amendment provisions should be made in court. Prosecutors shy away from possible court challenges because they are time consuming and the possibility of winning these challenges is a 50/50 proposition.

If the prosecutor is well-versed in Constitutional law or is willing to educate himself in these areas, he or she should not be hesitant in taking court challenges on a win-or-lose basis. We will never know if we can win in court until we try.

Possible future avenues of ultimate prosecution of Scientology are as follows:

1. The Ontario Provincial Police are currently engaged in collating and cataloging boxes of material seized in the execution of a search warrant of the Toronto org. (A total of 904 legal size boxes of material was seized.) This process is very time consuming and will probably not be completed until April or May of 1984. Some of the documents seized in the aforementioned search warrant are referenced back to the International Flag Headquarters of Scientology in Clearwater, Florida. A determination has not been made as to the scope of possible criminal violations emanating or directed from International Flag Headquarters located in Clearwater, Florida.

2. The Federal government, i.e., federal prosecutors and the F.B.I., have not formally refused to be involved in the investigation of Scientology. In all the discussions with federal officials, these officials have stated not to be too optimistic about federal involvement; however, a final review of the Scientology case has not been conducted by the Justice Department in Washington, D. C.

4. The Consumer Affairs Division of the City of New York are currently engaged in an investigation of SCIENTOLOGY, exact status, unknown.


The SCIENTOLOGY organization has been in existence since 1952 and in Clearwater since 1975. Since its inception, SCIENTOLOGY has flourished and prospered despite setbacks in Australia, France and in 1977, Washington, D. C.

Many governments throughout this country have expressed an interest about SCIENTOLOGY and its practices and these governments have launched local inquiries into this organization. The conclusions of these independent investigations have also been the same, an open investigation without a definitive direction or purpose.

The SCIENTOLOGY organization is a multi-faceted, extremely complex organization, purposefully designed to encumber any one investigation conducted on a local level. Added to this encumbrance is the fact SCIENTOLOGY claims to be a religion and therefore, protected under the provisions of the first amendment. The SCIENTOLOGY organization exploits every opportunity to hide behind their so called religious status. This posture is epitomized by a SCIENTOLOGY document entitled, Level O Checklist. In the Level O Checklist, instructions are given to SCIENTOLOCY members who are approached by medical doctors while these members are attempting to employ SCIENTOLOGY methods and practices to patients in hospitals and nursing homes. The Instructional Guide states the SCIENTOLOGY member is to claim religious status when approached by a medical doctor if the doctor is disturbed or displeased with the SCIENTOLOGISTS administering medical treatment to the patient. If the SCTENTOLOGY Member is arrested, a lawyer will be provided immediately and a suit is to be instituted in excess of $100,000 against the doctor and anyone else that it might be advantageous to sue for violating the SCIENTOLOGIST'S first amendment rights in practicing religion on the patient.

As can be shown by this one rendering of a simple document, Level O Checklist, the SCIENTOLOGY organization has prepared itself against outside intrusions regarding its practices. In the Level O Checklist, the instructions are for SCZENTOLOGY members to safeguard against inquiries about the quasi medical practices veiled to assume religious connotations. The SCIENTOLOGY Organization and L. Ron Hubbard have authored hundreds of documents and policies which are all designed to protect SCIENTOLOGY from investigation and ultimately, prosecution. One of the operations of SCIENTOLOGY is to engage in harassing law suits designed to forestall and negate any inquiry into their practices. This coupled along with other SCIENTOLOGI practices Of "Fair Game", "Attack the attacker", "The Black PR Doctrine", (which is designed to find out damaging information about SCIENTOLOGY detractors and make this information public), and other SCIENTOLOGY practices designed to protect this organization at all costs causes a great deal of concern among potential investigators and prosecutors. As shown in the investigative portion of the report, prosecutors are reluctant to properly investigate and prosecute the SCIENTOLOGY organization for some of the reasons mentioned above. Also, new prosecutors know from previous experience relayed to them by investigators and prosecutors that have attempted to investigate SCIENTOLOGY, a large legal staff is necessary to answer subpoenas in various parts of the Country and file motions for Discovery of Evidence in other parts of the Country.

Various prosecutors have expressed Court appearances as a large problem when conducting a meaningful investigation and prosecution of SCIENTOLOGY.

The SCIENTOLOGY organization is a large, complex corporation with many, many sub-corporations inclusive into its structure. Once again, this corporation and sub-corporate designs were devised to hamper any investigation into SCIENTOLOGY practices. A particular problem associated with this organization and its many corporations, is the tracing and tracking of financial flows of monies and credits. The organization has many bank accounts throughout the world (mostly in European Banks) that are virtually impossible to monitor without the aid of Federal assistance. A local investigator or prosecutor in Florida does not have the wherewithal to flow a financial investigation from beginning to end because money transfers within SCIENTOLOGY are done on an interstate basis and from Country to Country.

In summation, the investigation of SCIENTOLOGY should take on the propertions displayed by our law enforcement brothers of the Ontario Provincial Police in Toronto, Canada or an overall investigation should not begin. In this report, an accounting of men and materials to date that has been committed to the investigation or a single SCIENTOLOGY ORG is included for your review.

In 1977, the F.B.I. arrested Michael Meisner for Burglary of a.Government Office. A Grand Jury was impaneled in Washington, D. C., and indictments were handed down for the arrest of eleven SCIENTOLOGISTS, including Mary Sue Hubbard. A search warrant was executed on the SCIENTOLOGY ORG in Washington, D. C. This search warrant yielded volumes of SCIENTOLOGY policies, practices and rules in document forms. Of particular interest was information seized pertaining to burglaries, extortion and other crimes.

The documents were in the form of Guardian Office Operations such as Operation Taco-less, Operation Keeler I and Keeler ZI, Operation Choke, Operations against the news media in Pinellas County and the Operation against Paulette Cooper. All these documents came to the attention of both the Federal and local law enforcement agencies without results. The ideal time for a complete investigation into illegal SCIENTOLOGY practices would have been immediately after the revelation of these before mentioned documents in 1977-78-79; before the Statute of Limitations took effect over the attendent crimes mentioned in the seized documents.

The City of Clearwater and the Clearwater Police Department are placed into the position of investigating Vislations of the Criminal Statutes by SCIENTOLOGY members on a case by case basis because of manpower restrictions. Any future criminal violations should be referred to the State Attorney's Office on case by case basis as mentioned before. A total investigation of the policies and practices of SCIENTOLOGY is completely out of the question when this investigation is conducted on a local level.

Violations that are affected by the Charitable Solicitation Ordinance should be referred to the City Attorney's Office after mechanisms for referral have been instituted.

The records and files contained at the Clearwater Police Department should be available to any authorized law enforcement agency or governmental body investigating SCIENTOLOGY.

The investigation of the practices of SCIENTOLOGY should be a complete investigative effort, properly staffed and with the conviction prosecution is possible or not attempted at all.

In closing, I have submitted a newspaper article which appeared in the St. Petersburg Times on Sunday, November 20, 1983. This article is a follow-up concerning the Rev. Jones and the Jonestown suicides. The portions of the article which should be noticed are set apart by parentheses.

The purpose of this report is not to harbor ill will amongst the law enforcement prosecution agencies in Florida. The purpose of this report is to unite all agencies together to investigate and bring this large complex criminal organization to justice.

I use the concept of the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee as my guide in asking for a joint committment of the various criminal justice systems to ferret out information concerning a criminal conspiracy to defraud within the Scientology organization. The attached letter from Robert W. Merkle, the U.S. Attorney, explains the concept of L.E.C.C. and how the various agencies of the criminal justice system can coordinate and combat a common foe: Organized Crime.
