DECLARATION OF LAWRENCE H. BRENNAN
I, Lawrence H. Brennan, also know as “Larry Brennan”, declare and say:1. I am over 18 years of age and a resident of the State of New Hampshire. I have personal knowledgeof the matters set forth in this declaration and, if called upon as a witness I could and wouldcompetently testify thereto.2. I have read numerous legal documents filed by members of the Church of Scientology (hereinafter“organized scientology”) including filings made to the US Internal Revenue Service and filings madein various legal cases including two declarations by David Miscavige (hereinafter “Miscavige”)“Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center” (Declaration of David Miscavige dated8 February 1994 in the case Church of Scientology International vs. Steven Fishman and Uwe GeertzAND Declaration of David Miscavige dated 24 September 1999 in the case Larry Wollersheimvs.Church of Scientology of California).3. For the sake of brevity, I am leaving the vast majority of details out of this declaration but I willoffer them to any governmental officials investigating organized scientology in the United States of America, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Norway, Canada, Greece,Russia, Australia or anywhere else where there is a legal interest in the details behind what is coveredin this declaration and where the governmental agency has an honest interest in stopping abuses,frauds and/or other misdeeds by organized scientology and Miscavige.4. I have reason to believe that organized scientology will try to prevent me from giving such details,including possibly physical harm to myself. Thus I wish to make one thing clear now. I am of soundmind and happy in my life and look forward to living many more years of life. I have no desire tocommit suicide. Should I die and it appear that “I committed suicide” I wish to point out I wouldnever do that and I would wish to request an investigation into organized scientology and Miscavigeas potentially being behind my death.BACKGROUND5. I have more factual and legal knowledge of the history of organized scientology’s corporate, taxand other legal matters outside of the courts from the 1970s through early 1984 than any single personcurrently in organized scientology or outside of same. I believe that I have more knowledge of actionstaken by organized scientology to develop a religious cloaking and why it was done than anyone elsecurrently in organized scientology. Additionally, I have intimate and detailed knowledge of thecreation of much of the current corporate and other legal structure of organized scientology as well aswhat Miscavige and L. Ron Hubbard (hereinafter “Hubbard”) had to do with it. This will be coveredbelow.6. Positions I have held while on staff of organized scientology that dealt with the above include thefollowing:(i) “Legal Handling United States Guardian’s Office” (LHUSGO) from December 1974 to about July1975. In this capacity I supervised staff in the Guardians Offices of all the local organizations of scientology throughout the United States in administering the basic legal rudiments of organizedscientology. I also carried out other actions relating to the legal aspects of organized scientology as Iwas instructed to do from time to time;
 
(ii) Legal Branch I Director United States Guardian’s Office” (L Br I Dir USGO) from July 1975 toJuly 1976. This was a promotion from the above noted position and put me in charge of all legalmatters of all organizations of scientology throughout the United States that were outside of thecourts. In other words I did not supervise legal matters once they involved litigation but I didsupervise all legal matters outside of same which constitute the vast majority of all legal matters;(iii) Legal Branch I Director World Wide Guardian’s Office” (L Br I Dir GOWW) from July 1976through early July 1981. This was a promotion from the above noted position and put me in charge of all legal matters of all organizations of scientology throughout the world that were outside of thecourts. Once again, I did not supervise legal matters once they involved litigation but I did superviseall legal matters outside of same which constitute the vast majority of all legal matters. From thisposition I wrote many legal programs and orders that had to do with religious cloaking and corporatecontrols throughout organized scientology and had them complied with by all local scientologyorganizations throughout the world. This includes not only what was known as “churches” or“missions” of organized scientology. It also included all their front groups including those known as“Narconon”, “Applied Scholastics, “Education Alive”, “Citizens Commission for Human Rights” andany other group then used by organized scientology.In the last year at “GOWW” I was in regular contact with a team called “Mission Corporate CategorySort out” (MCCS) who were in part trying to develop a new corporate structure for organizedscientology. This was an unusual action in that normally such matters would be handled by theGuardians Office but now they were being worked on by a team under the Commodores MessengerOrganization (“CMO”) in liaison with us in the Guardians Office. They were having many problemswith same as they were running up against the same problems we in GOWW were having withredesigning the corporate structure which was that it was expected that the truth be hidden. It wasexpected that the structure hide the fact the Hubbard really was in control of organized scientologyand was getting money for same. It was expected that MCCS also hide the fact that the CMO was nowtaking over the running of all of organized scientology including having full control of the lowerorganizations. It was wanted to have MCCS develop a plan to give Hubbard and CMO completecontrol, to funnel millions of dollars to Hubbard, to justify taking most of the money from allscientology organizations around the world and put it under the control of CMO and to hide the majorassets of organized scientology from the government or potential litigants. At the same time, it had toinsulate both Hubbard and the CMO from any legal liability for running the organizations of scientology by lying about the level of control they really had. Miscavige was the supervisor overMCCS and failed to work out a solution. The missionaries on that mission wanted to develop anhonest structure and not have to hide the above but Miscavige disagreed. That mission was thendisbanded. Miscavige later lied in court as to why he disbanded that mission. This will be covered indetail below.(iv) In July 1981 I reported to organized scientology headquarters in Los Angeles after the GuardiansOffice was taken over by CMO which was secretly run by both Hubbard and Miscavige underHubbard orders. While there I wrote up with another what was called an “evaluation” of what waswrong with the corporate structures of organized scientology. It was greatly messed up due to the factthat it was hiding Hubbard’s control of same and due to the fact that by that point millions of dollarswere secretly funneled to Hubbard. I did not include that analysis in the evaluation as it would nothave been accepted by the CMO nor Hubbard. I blamed us in the Guardian’s Office instead so that itcould be accepted and sent it up to Miscavige and Hubbard. I had to actually draw charts throughoutthe evaluation to show graphically the difference between ecclesiastical and corporate structures andwhy it was so confused in organized scientology so that people like Miscavige who had no realunderstanding of corporate matters could understand what I was trying to say. My intention was to use
 
this opportunity to actually get everything straight within corporate organized scientology. I was thenput on a new mission to handle the corporate structure called “Corporate Sortout”. We in fact didwork out the new corporate planning ultimately under Miscavige. More details will be given below;(v) from December 1981 through 1983 I initially worked on further actions to implement the newcorporate planning under a group known as “Special Unit”, then became part of Special Unit itself with a post title of “Special Unit Corporate Execution”. After that I was promoted to run Special Unitas “Special Unit In Charge” until I was removed in or about early 1984 and then left staff in March1984. Details of Special Unit will be covered below. During the approximately one and one half yearsthat I was Special Unit In Charge I also held the position known as “Watchdog Committee X” (“WDCX”), The Watchdog Committee has been listed in organized scientology promotion as the senior mostbody within the “church” that oversees all major operations of organized scientology. There wereapproximately ten of us in this body but we were not at the top as organized scientology states.Secretly we were run by both Miscavige and Hubbard as covered below.RELIGIOUS CLOAKING IN THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY
7. Based on years of work in the senior most legal bodies of organized scientology ascovered above I have dealt with directly or supervised the handling of hundreds of legalmatters involving the organizations of scientology which directly or indirectly had to dowith using religious cloaking to help handle a real or potential legal or PR probleminvolving said organizations. This included a wide range of legal matters involving taxes,immigration, licensing, corporate, potential draft issues, practice of medicine and/orpsychology, sales of services, employment laws and much more. This involves timesboth within the Guardians Office as well as later in Special Unit and from my position asWDC X.8. It was determined that the only way to handle many of the legal matters in front of usand still apply Hubbard’s policies that had to do with staff, ethics, sales of services,money, delivery of services and the like was to develop and use a religious cloakingsaying scientology was a religion, its services religious, its staff members of religiousorders and the like. I can state without doubt that the overwhelming main reason thatorganized scientology developed and pushed its religious cloaking was to avoid a myriadof real or potential legal problems that would exist by following Hubbard’s policies if itwere not considered a religion. By developing this religious cloaking for organizedscientology it was hoped to avoid legal requirements around the world that mightotherwise have to be followed that would make it impossible to follow Hubbard’spolicies. In developing the religious cloaking for organized scientology, the followingwere considered a few of the “benefits” so that Hubbard policies could be applied. Thereare countless examples but the below are listed simply as a few of them:(i) minimum wages would not have to be paid;(ii) staff could be sent to different parts of the world and be able to stay locally asreligious workers;
