In a speech this week to the Australian Parliament, Independent Sen. Nick Xenophon said he has letters from former members of the church, detailing abuses such as false imprisonment, physical violence and blackmail, according to a report on the Australian Broadcast Co.'s Web site.

"These victims of Scientology claim it is an abusive manipulative and violent organization," he said, according to the Australian network. He said he gave the letters to police and called for a Senate investigation into the religion's tax-exempt status.
