The BBC's John Sweeney gives us another glimpse of creepy Scientology intimidation - 2014-02-06
During hearings this week in a lawsuit about Scientology spying and harassment, a 2010 video was played in a courtroom that showed the church's hired operatives following Monique Rathbun to her south Texas home.
The video had nothing to do with a free-speech protest, and Monique has never been a member of the church itself. It appeared to be solid evidence that Scientology was tailing and filming her for no other reason than an ongoing campaign of intimidation and harassment.
But the church explained the video in an interesting way. Although it looked pretty plainly like a film crew stalking Monique, Scientology attorney Ricardo Cedillo claimed that it was actually footage from a church documentary about someone else entirely — BBC journalist John Sweeney.
