Mirriam & Saina from 'Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath' - The LAPD has let us down - 2017-08-16
Don't know about you, but after last night's episode of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, we were left feeling a bit up in the air. If you remember, at the opening of the episode, we were reminded that at the end of last season, Mike and Leah were talking about meeting with attorneys to get some legal action going in regards to Scientology. And then, over the summer, we were teased with a brief scene about "detectives" showing up to talk to Leah.
Last night, we didn't really learn much about that discussion in Manhattan with an attorney, but we did learn that the subjects of last night's second season premiere episode, Mirriam Francis and Saina Kamula, met recently with Los Angeles Police Department detectives and brought along Leah Remini and Mike Rinder for support. Cameras weren't allowed in that meeting, and we weren't really sure from last night's episode what to conclude about those talks. So we asked Mirriam and Saina about it directly.
Mirriam: The meeting with the detectives went well. I had first lodged my police statement in Australia in 2012. Over the course of a few years the investigator compiled a thorough and complete case, which he submitted, only to be told it had to be sent to US Authorites as that's where my father currently resides. Since that time I have had no update on my case and the Australian police have not been able to give me any information. So, I felt somewhat re-charged sitting down with the LAPD detectives. A feeling that perhaps now something would happen. The LAPD detectives were lovely. They seemed to listen and care about what we had to say. Our statememts were officially lodged. But nothing much has resulted.
