Blog: Scientology Inc: L. Ron Hubbard Never Appointed David Miscavige as his Successor (Mark Fisher) - 2016-06-29
In this podcast Mark Fisher — who was David Miscavige's former assistant for many years at the Corporate Liaison Office and later RTC — discusses how L. Ron Hubbard never appointed David Miscavige as his Successor. Instead, Mark describes how David Miscavige, who then worked as an employee of the privately-owned for-profit company Author Services Inc., used ASI to stage a palace coup to take over RTC, and thus the Church, after the death of L. Ron Hubbard.
Mark Fisher also discusses how he took personal possession of L. Ron Hubbard's auditing folders and the OTVIII - OTX materials after Hubbard's death, this at the direct order of David Miscavige.
In my previous article Scientology claims L. Ron Hubbard chose David Miscavige to succeed him, proving he didn't, David Miscavige used Scientology attorney Eric Lieberman to insist that he, David Miscavige, had rightfully inherited the mantle of L. Ron Hubbard. Lieberman insisted the Church has documents from L. Ron Hubbard supporting this claim. However, neither Lieberman nor the Church has ever publicly produced these alleged documents. It stands to reason that if such documents existed then David Miscavige would certainly have produced and publicly circulated these documents immediately upon the death of L. Ron Hubbard in January 1986. This never happened. Therefore, Lieberman's claim must remain unsubstantiated until such a time as the purported documents are publicly posted online and made available for one and all to examine.
