Concerns over Scientology company - 2016-03-26
Dublin-based Kilcoyne & Co Accountants have raised concerns in relation to the Church of Scientology Mission of Dublin Ltd in spite of the company increasing its revenues sharply last year to €86,716.
The global church counts movie stars Tom Cruise and John Travolta as some of its best-known members. The Irish church was previously bailed out to the tune of €326,875 when a loan provided to the Church of Scientology here was forgiven by Churches of Scientology overseas.
The loan that gave rise to the deficit at the Irish church is understood to relate a long-running High Court action from 2003 taken against the church by former member, Mary Johnston. The case was settled out of court on undisclosed terms after 31 days of evidence.
