Even in Mexico, Scientology bullies people with hired muscle - but for now strikes out - 2017-05-07
Rod Keller continues to keep an eye on things going on south of the border for us...
Last week we reported that local officials in the greater Mexico City neighborhood of Lomas del Olivo had shut down renovations being done on Scientology's new Advanced Org Saint Hill LATAM facility because of an expired permit. This week Scientology played a cat and mouse game with officials as it attempted to continue work despite the ban. The banners announcing the closure that had been torn by unknown parties were taped back together, but trucks and workers continued to use the gates.
In an interview with news site La Silla Rota entitled "Scientologists have documents in order," Scientology spokesperson and Sea Org member Jonathan Rico said "I do not see that there is anything wrong, there must be an administrative confusion because we have our papers in order, and if there is anything that needs to be remedied, we will be carrying out the necessary administrative resources and clarifying the confusion."
