The Committee of Evidence—Comm Ev for short—is one of the chief instruments the Church of Scientology uses to administer justice. Over the years, this court-martial-like hearing has changed from a method of gathering facts and evidence to something more sinister. Nine times out of time, the outcome is a foregone conclusion, played out for show rather than in the interest of fairness and justice.

For many church members, there is little more frightening than being called before a Committee of Evidence. As every Scientologist knows, the Comm Ev is the first step toward being declared a Suppressive Person. And being disconnected from all of one's family and friends.

I attended the first Comm Ev called on me. I blew off the second, choosing not to participate in the farcical dog and pony show they'd become (if they'd ever been anything else).
