SCIENTOLOGIST ARRESTED IN L.A. COURT: Narconon fraud defendants in wild scene - 2019-10-01
Hanan Islam, a Scientologist who is accused of using a Scientology Narconon drug rehab and unwitting high school students to defraud millions from the state Medi-Cal program, was arrested today in the courtroom of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor, who also issued an arrest warrant for one of Islam's co-defendants. [Update: Hanan's son Rizza Islam was also arrested for contempt of court.]
The hearing was supposed to be a preliminary hearing that has been delayed in the case for years. Most recently, Hanan, 60, and her son Ronnie "Rizza" Islam, 29, had tried to delay the criminal case with "sovereign citizen" conspiracy theories that they were not the people who should be facing prosecution.
