TURIN, Italy, May 20 (UPI) — Italian police who raided a Scientology chapter said they found what appeared to be extensive files on law-enforcement officials and former members.
The documents were in a locked room of the Scientology chapter in Turin and were said to contain information on the subjects’ health, politics and sexual habits, the ANSA news agency said Thursday.1

Q What does the term “fair game” refer to?1
A “Fair game” is a term which is often intentionally misinterpreted and used by apostate Scientologists and other critics to unfairly tarnish the Church.
“Fair game” was canceled in 1968, more than 30 years ago, expressly because it was susceptible to misinterpretation and misuse. The term meant that apostate members could not seek protection or refuge under the Church’s internal ethics or justice codes. It had been intentionally and grossly misinterpreted by apostates, when all it meant was that those expelled from the Church could no longer take advantage of the internal ecclesiastical support and justice procedures churches of Scientology provide to resolve disputes and upsets among parishioners. They would have to make their own way, unaided, with the justice procedures of the society as their only recourse.
This concept is as old as religion itself. Many faiths reserve the right to expel or excommunicate members who refuse to abide by the moral and ecclesiastical codes of the group.
The term does not appear in the scriptures of Scientology and has not existed since 1968. In fact, its only use since then is not by the Church at all, but by a handful of anti-Scientology apostates and their attorneys who have exploited it in efforts to generate anti-Scientology prejudice in the media or courtroom.
The truth is that Church management never has and never would tolerate illegal or unethical actions to be committed in the Church’s name. The scriptures of Scientology are replete with admonitions to its adherents to build their lives on foundations of honesty and integrity. The commission of dishonesties or harmful acts against another is the road to personal misery and destruction of positive interpersonal relationships.

Re: Gerald Armstrong.
Dear Dr. Kent,
I am writing to you on behalf of Church of Scientology International. It has
come to our attention that you have been engaged in various activities in conjunction with Gerald Armstrong which fall within the general category of anti- Scientology public statements. These have included trips to Europe where you and Mr. Armstrong have appeared together at various public gatherings, all with the same anti-religious agenda.
Enclosed is a copy of an injunction issued against Mr. Armstrong as well as those “acting in concert” with him.2 Clearly, you have acted in concert with Mr. Armstrong, thus this court order applies to you. You are hereby on notice of this injunction and that you are bound by its terms.
Very truly yours,

SUPPRESSIVE PERSON DECLARE
Caroline Letkeman, of Chilliwack, British Columbia, is hereby declared a Suppressive Person.
Caroline Letkeman, in November 2001, formally resigned from the Church of Scientology by means of a public declaration. In addition to this, she demanded full refund of all funds donated to the Church.
In the year 2000, Caroline wrote an essay against Scientology which contained defamatory statements and black propaganda; this was written for a known suppressive group and was published through a broad communication medium.
Attempts have been made by Church staff to assist Caroline to come to her senses, however, she refused these efforts to help her and has continued to commit suppressive acts.
In HCO PL 23 Dec 1965RB SUPPRESSIVE ACTS, SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY AND SCIENTOLOGISTS, LRH states: “A SUPPRESSIVE PERSON or GROUP is one that actively seeks to suppress or damage Scientology or a Scientologist by suppressive acts.”
Caroline has committed the following suppressive acts as listed in HCO PL 23 December 1965RB SUPPRESSIVE ACTS, SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY AND SCIENTOLOGISTS:
1. VIOLATION OR NEGLECT OF ANY OF THE TEN POINTS OF KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING .
2. PUBLIC DISAVOWAL OF SCIENTOLOGY OR SCIENTOLOGISTS IN GOOD STANDING WITH SCIENTOLOGY ORGANIZATIONS.
3. PUBLIC STATEMENTS AGAINST SCIENTOLOGY OR SCIENTOLOGISTS BUT NOT TO COMMITTEES OF EVIDENCE DULY CONVENED.
4. DEMANDING THE RETURN OF ANY OR ALL FEES PAID FOR STANDARD TRAINING OR PROCESSING ACTUALLY RECEIVED OR RECEIVED IN PART AND STILL AVAILABLE BUT UNDELIVERED ONLY BECAUSE OF DEPARTURE OF THE PERSON DEMANDING.
Any certificates and awards issued to Caroline Letkeman are hereby canceled. Any trademark licenses, for Dianetics and Scientology marks, she may have signed are canceled.
It is hoped that Caroline comes to her senses and recants. She may follow steps A- E as covered in HCO PL 23 December 1965RB SUPPRESSIVE ACTS, SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY AND SCIENTOLOGISTS.
Her only terminal is the International Justice Chief via the Continental Justice Chief.
