Exclusive: Oscar Winner Paul Haggis Suffers Retribution: Two Former Scientologists Say They Were Pressured to Help Frame Him with Women - 2018-01-25
Each of these former Scientologists told me similar stories: a very high placed Scientology executive had asked them recently for dirt on Haggis. "Anything to do with women," the exec said.
The gist of it: the Scientology exec had called, pressuring her to get information illegally from Haggis's confidential guild records to see if there had been complaints made against him of a sexual nature. "He had also asked if she was aware of any industry rumors about Paul related to violent behavior toward women," one of them said in a signed statement. The colleague corroborated the friend.
One of the Scientologists said in a signed statement: "The idea was so outrageous to me, I told him flat out, "no." I told him he was asking me to break the law. I would never do that. Those files are highly confidential." When she balked, the Scientology exec tried to convince her that he already had someone to speak against Haggis. "We have a woman," the exec told her.
