DECLARATION OF CHRISTIE COLLBRAN
I, Christie Collbran, declare as follows:
1. My name is Christie Collbran, and I am over the age of 18.
2. I have personal knowledge of the matters set forth hereinafter and, if called as
a witness, I would competently testify thereto.
Purpose of Declaration
3. In this declaration, I set forth the things that I saw, heard, read, and observed the
Church of Scientology (CSI) do that made me believe I could not challenge or sue the Church of
Scientology.
Membership in Sea Organization
4. I joined Scientology's Sea Organization (Sea Org) in 1993 when I was 16 years
old with the consent of my parents. The Sea Org is an internal organization within Scientology that
is responsible for overseeing the delivery of Scientology throughout the world. I remained a member
of the Sea Org until 2006 when I was 29 years old.
5. I worked at various locations during my time in the Sea Org, including in
California, New York, and South Africa.
6. Throughout my time in the Sea Org, I worked seven days a week. I frequeritly
worked on little or no sleep, and I was paid sporadically. My pay varied during my time in the Sea Org,
but the most that I ever made was $50 per week.
Fear of Leaving the Sea Organization
7. Throughout my time in the Sea Org, believed it would be very difficult to leave
and that ifl attempted to do so, I may lose all contact with my and friends and that I would fail
on my own. These beliefs and fears were based on my personal observations and on statements made
by Church of Scientology personnel as detailed below.

8. I observed a number of individuals in the Sea Org who expressed a desire to
leave who were then put on a "program" by the Church of Scientology before they would be allowed
to leave. These individuals were segregated from the main Sea Org population, were not allowed to
speak to members of the main Sea Org population, and were assigned manual labor. I observed Lorena
Gonzalez spend at least 6 months trying to leave after stating that she wanted to do so. I also observed
Alejandra Barrazza spend many months performing manual labor after expressing a desire to leave.
It appeared that these individuals were just rotting away rather than being allowed to leave, and I
understood from everything that I observed that they were being "handled" by the Church of
Scientology to stay or were waiting for a sec check. To "handle" means to make a problem go away;
in this context the "problem" was that these individuals wanted to leave.
9. When my ex-husband, Chris Collbran, expressed his desire to leave the Sea Org,
he was prevented from leaving for the next nine months. He was sent to Los Angeles, California (I
remained in South Africa). Shortly after Chris was sent to Los Angeles to be "handled" to stay, the
Church of Scientology cut-off our communication. A person named Jenny, whose title was the
Supercargo for the Commodore's Messenger Organization International Extension Unit (CMO IXU),
told me that I was not allowed to speak to Chris. Additionally, while I tried to write a letter to Chris,
I never heard back from him and learned later that he was never given my letter.
10. At the time that Chris expressed a desire to leave the Sea Org, I told my senior
in South Africa, Alex Faust, that I wanted to leave with him. In tum, I received a letter from Jenny
Devocht of Scientology's Watchdog Committee (WDC) threatening me ifl did not decide to stay. This
letter stated that I was committing a "suppressive" act by expressing a desire to leave and stated that
there was no way I would be allowed to leave the Sea without a suppressive person declare
"around my neck." It also indicated that I would be cut-off from all of my family and friends within
the Sea Org and that I would never speak with them again. I also was told that I would be subject to
a "Freeloader" debt, which is a financial bill for services that I received in the Sea Org. As a result of
this letter, and given that I did not know anyone outside of Scientology, had no money, and had no non-
Scientology education, I relented on my statement that I wanted to leave.

11. The culture in the Sea Org was one of fear with respect to leaving. During my
entire time in the Sea Org, I believed that I was not allowed to speak about wanting to leave. I believed
this because I was train.ed that it was wrong to want to leave and that I was required to report anyone
who spoke of leaving to senior Scientology personnel. Additionally, the few times that I stated that
I wanted to leave the Sea Org, Scientology personnel, including Jenny Devocht, threatened me with
the loss of my family and friends and a freeloader debt as noted above. I also was subjected to security
("sec") checking. Sec checking is an investigatory tool used by Scientology to discover any
wrongdoing; in essence, it was understood and assumed that because I wanted to leave, I had done
something wrong.
Leaving the Sea Organization
12. In 2006, I wanted to leave the Sea Org. However, based on everything that I
observed up to that time, I did not believe that I would simply be allowed to leave, and instead that I
would be "handled" to stay.
13. I came up with a way that I could not be "handled" to stay. I knew that the
Church of Scientology did not allow Sea Org members to have children. I also observed other Sea Org
members who became pregnant and had abortions. I therefore became pregnant and purposely kept
my pregnancy a secret for more than two and a half months so that I could not have an abortion. Once
I finally revealed that I was pregnant, I was segregated from the main Sea Org population and was
assigned light manual labor for two and a half months before I was allowed to leave.
14. Additionally, before I was allowed to leave the Sea Org in 2006, I was required
to sign an affidavit. This affidavit was presented to me by Kirsten Caetano, the Director of External
Affairs for Scientology's Office of Special Affairs (OSA) and by another woman named Rachel who
worked in Scientology's Commodore's Messenger Organization International Extension Unit (CMO
IXU).
15. The affidavit was not written or prepared by me. It contained personal
information about me from my files with the Church of Scientology, but this information was written
in an untruthful manner. For instance, the affidavit contained language that I was always

slacking off or that I regularly slept on the job, when in reality, I suffered a migraine on one occasion
and was unable to perform my regular duties on that occasion. The affidavit also contained a listing
of all of my supposed transgressions throughout my time in the Sea Org. It was clear to me from the
way that the affidavit was written that the Church of Scientology wanted to make me look bad and have
collateral against me. It made me appear as if I was a scumbag and worthless.
16. While I did not agree with many of the statements about me in the affidavit, I
did not believe that I would not be permitted to leave the Sea Org if I did not sign the affidavit. I
believed this because everyone who left before me without "blowing" had to sign an affidavit before
they were permitted to leave. "Blowing" means leaving without authorization. I also observed that
individuals who refused to sign an affidavit were subjected to "sec checking" until they agreed to sign
the document.
17. The affidavit that I signed was notarized in my presence by Jeannie Gavagan,
an in-house lawyer for the Church of Scientology.
18. It was represented to me in the affidavit and by Kirsten Caetano and Rachel that
by signing the affidavit, I was not allowed to communicate with anyone about what I saw or
experienced during my time in the Sea Org and that if I did not remain silent about my experiences,
I would be fined large amounts of money. I was also told that by signing this affidavit, I was promising
not to sue the Church of Scientology or attack the Church of Scientology in any way. Additionally,
by the way that the affidavit was written, I was led to believe that ifl did anything against the Church
of Scientology, the statements about me in this affidavit would be used against me.
19. I was not provided copies of any of the documents that I was required to sign
upon leaving the Sea Org, and did not know that I had any right to have copies of these documents.
20. Throughout my time in.the Sea Org, I was required to sign documents stating
that I would not sue the Church of Scientology, and I believed that I had no legal rights against the
Church of Scientology based on these documents. The same documents also stated that if I ever
attempted to sue the Church of Scientology, I would be fined large amounts of money, and I was fearful
of suing the Church or of taking any action against the Church based on the threat of financial
penalties.

Freeloader Debt
21. After I left the Sea Org, I was sent a "Freeloader" bill of$40,000. I ultimately
paid the Church of Scientology $10,000 to resolve this bill in an attempt to remain good standing with
the Church of Scientology. I was fearful of what would happen to me and to my relationships with
family and friends and to my reputation if I did not pay this bill.
Overcoming Fear
22. It took me three years after leaving the Sea Org before I felt comfortable publicly
questioning the Church of Scientology.
23. By 2009, I finally had a full understanding of the abuses that were taking place
in the Church of Scientology. I had time to independently evaluate what happened to me over the
course of thirteen years in the Sea Org. I also learned from my ex-husband, Chris Collbran, that the
Church of Scientology engaged in physical abuse of some of its highest ranking members and that he
witnessed this abuse at Scientology's International Base. Additionally, I observed that high-ranking,
veteran members of the Sea Org who questioned what was happening in the Church of Scientology,
were publicly smeared and treated as if they were worthless after many years of service. As a result
of this, I chose to no longer be a member of the Church of Scientology.
24. In 2010, I spoke out publicly regarding the Church of Scientology. While I did
not agree with the management of the Church of Scientology and the abuses that occurred within the
Sea Org, I still believed in a number of Scientology's philosophies and felt that it was important to give
a voice to individuals who left the Church, but who still believed in some of Scientology's
philosophies.
25. Up until the time that I spoke out against the Church of Scientology publicly,
I remained fearful that the Church of Scientology would come after me for financial penalties and that
it would attempt to enforce the documents that I signed when I left the Sea Org in 2006. However, by
that time, I felt that speaking out publicly was the right thing to do and I was finally willing to risk the
consequences of speaking publicly about my experiences.
