Re: Article " Polizeiaufmarsch in der Luisenkirche" of 21.01.03
Dear Mr. Schmidt,
As discussed with you today on the telephone, we are sending you documents
clarifying the militant actions of Mr. Gandow and Mr. Armstrong. You can see from
the attached complaint that Mr. Gandow and Mr. Armstrong forced their way with
two other people into the Russian Scientology Mission in Yekaterinburg for the
purpose of provoking a confrontation, during which time documents were forcibly
removed [from the Mission] (attachment 1) without Mr. Gandow hindering his comrade
or even showing the least bit of annoyance with him. If this had been Germany,
he and his comrade would have been found guilty of disturbing the peace [in the
Mission]. As to whether he could have been found accountable for complicity in
this theft by forcible taking by his companion, that certainly also would have
had to have been decided upon by a German judge.
From the information in "Zweifelhafte Geschichten in der Umgebung von
Gandow?" you can see read about Mr. Armstrong's strange forays into world
politics, not to mention the numerous outstanding court orders he has against
him. For instance, according to a newspaper article, he founded his Organization
of United Renouncers on November 11, 1992, two year before which he discovered
his predilection for Saddam Hussein. For each of the items cited we can place
papers and documents at your disposal as required (attachment 2).
Having a hustler like this show up at a church service speaks for itself. Demanding
police protection is on Mr. Gandow's standard program of dramatization, and

is a blatant abuse of police power, who really have more important things to
do. Gandow has repeatedly marketed Armstrong in public and overreacts whenever
anyone even glances at him sideways. A member of the Scientology Church was to
ascertain the residence of Mr. Armstrong for an attorney so that the lawyer could
pursue legal steps for outstanding charges, nothing more, since he [Armstrong]
did not seem to have any paperwork anywhere. Everything else is in the category
of a James Bond fantasy from Mr. Gandow, including this member, who is being held
responsible according to internal church disciplinary procedures.
As concerns Mr. Gandow's fabricated "intelligence agency fairy tales,"
we forward you an article from the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper of 25 April
2000, from which you can see that this is another story which has been debunked
by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (attachment 3).
A "German boss" of Scientology, as they are always called, was not
present at the church service, but the public gathering was attended by a Berlin
member who is involved with legal and public concerns.
As discussed, I request that you take excerpts of this and publish them as
letters from a reader. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have or provide
more information. As agreed, we also ask that you continue to include our position
on matters in the future. You can reach me or my colleague Mrs. Sabine Weber [contact
information] which will also go to a cellular phone.
