Scientology Goes After Critics With Legal Threat Letters Following Strange Infiltration - 2013-06-10
Details are still sketchy, but apparently, in April a Florida woman named Yuliya Keaton who had once served in Scientology's elite Sea Organization rejoined the group at its Los Angeles headquarters, but didn't tell the church her real aim was to smuggle in recording devices to capture examples of abuse.
On May 30, her plan was discovered. She has claimed in e-mails and Internet postings that she was held in a hotel room and interrogated by church officials for several days. On June 4, the church sent out legal threat letters by e-mail to at least two church critics, accusing them of being in cahoots with Keaton. One of those accused was prominent ex-church member Karen de la Carriere. We have the letter the church sent her, as well as her response.
