While the Scientology scandal swirls in Colombia, a key figure relaxes in Florida - 2018-08-20
Tomorrow, Colombia's Congress is holding hearings regarding the Scientology scandal that the media there has been feeding on. We told you last time that an upstart federal senator, Iván Cepeda, sparked the congressional investigation when he asked the country's new defense minister to report back about Scientology's infiltration of the country's military and national police.
That new defense minister (the national government was only seated a couple of weeks ago) deferred, saying that it was the job of the country's attorney general to look into the matter, and tomorrow the Congress will begin to hear some testimony about the scandal. Our man in Bogotá will be sending us dispatches about it.
One person who apparently won't be giving testimony is a central figure in the brouhaha, Colonel Ricardo Prado, formerly of the national police and a Scientology "Freedom medal" winner.
