Scientologist mounted 'vicious character attack' on ex-member - 2015-11-06
Zabina Collins, a leading member of the Church of Scientology in Ireland, launched "a vicious character attack" on a former member who had given a talk to Dublin schoolboys on cults, the Circuit Civil Court has been told.
Séamas Ó Tuathail SC, told the court Peter Griffiths, of Cual Gara, Teeling Street, Ballina, Co Mayo, had been defamed by Ms Collins in an email she had sent to the headmaster of St David's CBS, in Artane, Dublin, following a posting on the internet by Mr Griffiths of what he had said to the boys.
Mr Ó Tuathail, who appeared with barrister John Smith for Griffiths, said the email had nothing to do with the issues of scientology. She had written to the school principal allegedly as a concerned parent who had no child attending the school.
