Marion Evoy, a former head of the Canadian Scientology's Guardian Office finishes four days of testimony in the trial of the Church of Scientology of Toronto Inc. and five Scientology members on charges of criminal breach of trust.
The Church of Scientology is accused of running a spy network that in the 1970s that infiltrated the RCMP, the OPP, Metro Police and Ontario's Attorney General's office. Marion Evoy confirms that this is all true.
Crown Attorney James Stewart asked Evoy how she reconciled the Church of Scientology's demand for criminal activities with Scientology's statements of principles regarding honesty and freedom. She answers "It was the way I was trained."
Evoy and other members of Scientology are trained to do "whatever was necessary to protect" Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology itself. Criminal acts are "not considered against any code or moral in Scientology because you were protecting Scientology."
According to Evoy, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard believed there was a world-wide conspiracy of former Nazis who had overtaken Interpol to undermine his religious movement. Because of the scope of power and evil arrayed against him, almost any tactics were justified to use in response.
At the end of June, a jury will find the Church of Scientology of Toronto guilty on two counts and not guilty on three others. Three of the five Scientology members will be found guilty and two acquitted.
