It has long been known that people do not make gains when audited over undisclosed overts and withholds and that a withhold missed in auditing can cause quite an adverse reaction.
Because it has not previously been specified whether Confessionals could be done during the Non-interference Zone, it tended to leave the matter open to interpretation, and a common interpretation has been that one must not do any kind of Confessional or O/W pulling during the Non-interference Zone.
But what about a case who is out-ethics and not making progress due to continuous overts and withholds or, even worse, undisclosed overts or crimes against Scientology? Such a case won’t make any progress until these are gotten off.
A person who is NCG, nattery, critical or otherwise exhibiting O/Ws or out- ethics must be handled so that he can make case gains. And must not be continued in auditing until this is done.
This applies to pre-OTs as well as pes and specifically also applies to pre-OTs on OT III; on New OT IV, OT Drug RD; on New OT V, Audited NOTs; on New OT VII, Solo NOTs—the same as it applies to any other grade or OT section.
It is a CRIME to let a pre-OT get onto an OT section in that condition in the first place. And it is also a CRIME to continue the error and not remedy the matter right away.
One would not embark on a series of Confessionals during another grade or OT section, but it is imperative that pre-OTs on these sections who have missed withholds get them off and a specific Confessional can and should be done to accomplish this.
A pre-OT who is running well and making case gain should not be interrupted.
And, where a person in the Non-interference Zone does need O/Ws pulled, the auditor must first obtain a C/S okay.
By following these lines, you will save some pre-OTs who otherwise would not make it at all!
