NEW YORK -- A TWO MILLION DOLLAR FORGED CHECK DRAWN ON THE ACCOUNT OF BEST

SELLING AUTHOR L. RON HUBBARD PRESENTED AT THE MIDDLE EAST BANK IN NEW YORK

CITY HAS RESULTED IN THE EXPOSURE OF ORGANIZED CRIME INVOLVED IN MAJOR CHECK

FORGERIES. THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY FOLLOWING LEADS DEVELOPED FROM $100,000

REWARD ADS PLACED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, THE BOSTON

GLOBE, AND THE WASHINGTON TIMES, HAS COMPLETED AN EXHAUSTIVE INVESTIGATION

WHICH BEGAN SOME TWO YEARS AGO WHEN A MAN FROM THE MID-EAST SOUGHT TO PASS

FORGERY-CONSPIRACY/2

REACHED FOR COMMENT ON HOW HE HAD SPOTTED TAMMIMI'S ATTEMPTED FORGERY HE

SAID: "CALL IT A BANKER'S SIXTH SENSE. I SUSPECTED THE CHECK THE MOMENT I

SAW IT."

          THE CHURCH HIRED PROFESSIONAL PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS FROM AROUND THE

COUNTRY TO SOLVE THE CRIME. THE INVESTIGATION LED THROUGH THE MIDDLE EAST

BANK OF NEW YORK TO THE BANK OF NEW ENGLAND'S CASH RESERVE MANAGEMENT SECTION

WHICH SERVICES E.F. HUTTON ACCOUNTS IN BOSTON. THE INVESTIGATION THEN LED

TO TWO LAWYERS IN BOSTON BY THE NAME OF MICHAEL FLYNN AND WAYNE HOLLINGSWORTH

AS WELL AS SEVERAL ORGANIZED CRIME FIGURES WHOSE NAMES HAVE BEEN TURNED OVER

TO FEDERAL AUTHORITIES BY CHURCH HIRED PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS. THROUGH

INVESTIGATIONS OF WITNESSES AND CONFESSIONS OF MEMBERS OF THE CONSPIRACY

ITSELF THE INVESTIGATORS FOUND THE FOLLOWING:

 

...ABORTED CHECK FORGERY WAS USED BY FLYNN AND CO-CONSPIRATORS IN AN ATTEMPT

TO SEIZE MR. HUBBARD'S MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR ESTATE FROM HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN.

 

...PAYING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR KIDNAPPINGS BY FLYNN ASSOCIATED

MANAGEMENT CORPORATIONS (FAMCO) TO TURN CHURCH MEMBERS FROM THEIR FAITH.

...BILKING THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY FOR 560 MILLION DOLLARS ATTEMPTED

BY OFFERING SHARES THE FAMCO ORGANIZATION OFFEREND IN PACKAGED LITIGATION

SCHEMES.

 

...DECONVERSION OF ONE THOUSAND MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH THROUGH PSYCHIATRIC

FORGERY-CONSPIRACY/3

METHODS DEVELOPED BY BOSTON PSYCHIATRIST JOHN CLARK AIMED AT DESTROYING

RELIGION WERE ALSO PART OF THE CONSPIRATOR'S PLANS.

 

...COLLUSION BY IRS LAWYER MARTIN COHEN WITH FAMCO TO ASSIST IN CIVIL

LITIGATION AGAINST THE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY.

 

          AFTER GAINING ACCESS TO THE BANK OF NEW ENGLAND WHERE HUBBARD HAD

AN ACCOUNT, FLYNN ARRANGED TO OBTAIN SAMPLE CHECKS AND THEN HAD ALA

TAMIMI ARRANGE THE COUNTERFEITING OF THE $2 MILLION DOLLAR CHECK ON HUBBARD'S

ACCOUNT AT THE BANK OF NEW ENGLAND IN BOSTON.

          IN A SIGNED, FINGERPRINTED, AND NOTORIZED DECLARATION GIVEN IN ITALY

AND WITNESSED BY HIS ATTORNEY, NOW IN POSSESSION OF FEDERAL PROSECUTORS, ALA

TAMIMI RELATED HOW FLYNN HAD PROMISED HIM $40,000 TO PASS THE CHECK AND TRANSFER

THE $2 MILLION FROM THE ACCOUNT OF THE LEGENDARY WRITER TO AN OVERSEAS ACCOUNT

THAT FLYNN WOULD LATER DESIGNATE. TAMIMI THEN USED HIS BROTHER AKIL TO TRY AND

CASH THE FORGED CHECK IN NEW YORK CITY.

          ACCORDING TO HIS OWN SWORN STATEMENT, ALSO IN FEDERAL HANDS, AKIL WAS

VERY NERVOUS DURING HIS VISIT TO THE BANK, FAILED TO PRODUCE PROPER IDENTIFI-

CATION PAPERS, AND LEFT THE $2 MILLION DOLLAR CHECK AT THE BANK SAYING HE

WOULD RETURN WITH PROPER IDENTIFICATION THE FOLLOWING DAY.

          FLYNN'S PLOT WAS THWARTED WHEN AKIL PANICKED AND FAILED TO RETURN.

MEANWHILE, HUBBARD'S BUSINESS MANAGERS LEARNED ABOUT THE CHECK AND QUICKLY

ALERTED THE BANK TO STOP PAYMENT. ALA TAMIMI FLED THE COUNTRY WHILE HIS

BROTHER AKIL DISAPPEARED INTO MAINE WITH THE HELP OF ONE OF FLYNN'S MEN,

ACCORDING TO A FILED COURT AFFIDAVIT IN LOS ANGELES.

          FLYNN LATER USED HIS ABORTED PLAN TO FILE THE CALIFORNIA PROBATE PETITION

WITH RON DEWOLF (ESTRANGED SON OF AUTHOR L. RON HUBBARD) IN 1982. FLYNN

TRIED TO PUT THE BLAME FOR HIS FELONY ON SCIENTOLOGISTS AND CLAIMED THAT THE

CRIME PROVED THAT HUBBARD'S ESTATE SHOULD BE SEIZED BY THE COURT IN ORDER

TO ALLEGEDLY PROTECT IT FROM SCIENTOLOGISTS.

          CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY ATTORNEY JOHN PETERSON STATED THAT A PORTION OF

THE RESULTS OF THE INTERNATIONAL INQUIRY WERE MADE AVAILABLE TO L.A.

ATTORNEY DONALD RANDOLPH AND HIS CLIENT WHEN KEVIN FLYNN HAD ATTACKED THE

CHURCH IN THE CASE WHICH HAD EXPOSED FAMCO PAYMENTS FOR KIDNAPPING.

          ACCORDING TO PETERSON, THE AFFIDAVITS "ARE BUT ONE SMALL PART OF THE

EVIDENCE COLLECTED. WE HAVE EYEWITNESSES, DOCUMENTS AND PHOTOGRAPHS THAT

LEAVE NOT ONE SHRED OF DOUBT."

          THE DECLARATION WAS FILED IN RESPONSE TO AN ATTEMPT BY MICHAEL FLYNN'S

BROTHER, KEVIN, TO HALT A COURT-APPROVED INQUIRY INTO THE FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS

OF FAMCO AND BLOSSOMS, A WASHINGTON D.C. RESTAURANT OWNED BY KEVIN FLYNN.

RANDOLPH STATED IN HIS DECLARATION THAT KEVIN FLYNN'S MOTIVES IN"SEEKING TO

PREVENT DISOVERY OF HIS FRAUDULENT AND CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES" WERE " TRANS-

PARENT AND UNDERSTANDABLE. HE DOES NOT WISH TO HAVE THIS INFORMATION DISCOVERED

AS IT MAY WELL SUBJECT HIM TO SEVERE PENALTIES."

          ACCORDING TO THE FILED DECLARATION, KEVIN FLYNN HAD ILLEGALLY OBTAINED

A LOAN FROM THE SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION "WITH FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATIONS

AND MISLEADING INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PREVENT THE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

FORGERY-CONSPIRACY/5

INVOLVED FROM OBTAINING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE RESTAURANT AND HIS ACTIVITIES

WITH MICHAEL FLYNN.

          IN DESCRIBING THE COURSE OF THE INTENSIVE SIX MONTH INQUIRY, PETERSON

SAID CHURCH INVESTIGATORS TRACED THE PATH OF THE CONSPIRACY THROUGH MORE

THAN A DOZEN CITIES, FROM BOSTON AND NEW YORK TO CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, THE

CAYMAN ISLANDS AND FINALLY TO ITALY AND DUBAI AND SHARJAH IN THE UNITED

EMIRATES. "THE DOCUMENTATION IS EXPLICIT AND COMPLETE," HE ADDED. "WE

HAVE CORROBORATIVE WITNESSES AND DOCUMENTS INCLUDING PHOTOGRAPHS THAT

COMPLETELY VERIFY THE CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY."

          THE SAME BANK OF NEW ENGLAND IS CURRENTLY THE CENTER OF ANOTHER

$2 MILLION DOLLAR FORGERY CASE WHERE A CONTACT INSIDE THE BANK MADE

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO A DISBARRED BOSTON AREA ATTORNEY WHO

FRAUDULENTLY PURCHASED GEMS FOR THE STOLEN CASH FROM A CHICAGO DEALER.

INVESTIGATORS OBTAINED TAMIMI'S AGREEMENT TO DOCUMENT HIS INVOLVEMENT

IN THE CONSPIRACY. BECAUSE OF HIS FEARS FOR THE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING

OF HIS FAMILY, AND FOR HIS OWN LIFE, PETERSON STATED, "TAMIMI PROTECTED

HIMSELF." PETERSON WOULD NOT ELABORATE.

          PETERSON SAID THE INFORMATION OBTAINED ON THE PROBATE-FORGERY

CONSPIRACY, FAMCO AND BLOSSOMS ARE "BUT A SMALL PERSCENTAGE OF WHAT WE HAVE

UNEARTHED."

                "THE ENTIRE CHECK FORGERY, PROBATE FRAUD AND THE BROADER FAMCO SCHEME

OF WHICH IT IS CLEARLY A PART, PROVES THAT FLYNN AND HIS CRONIES, ENTIRELY

MOTIVATED BY GREED, WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO CREATE CHAOS FOR PROFIT,"

PETERSON SAID. "HE IS A DESPICABLE CRIMINAL -- THE TOTALLY UNPRINCIPLED

[*LAWY]ER ACCUSING OTHERS OF HIS OWN CRIMES. HE BREAKS THE LAW AND THEN AMORALLY

[*TRIES] TO USE IT AS FALSE EVIDENCE IN COURT TO GENERATE SENSATIONALIZED

[*SHOUL]D BE DISBARRED."

[*See press release 7-24-1984:

"Peterson said. "He is a despicable criminal - the totally unprincipled lawyer accusing others of his own crimes. He breaks the law and then amorally tries to use it as false evidence in court to generate sensationalized press to extort money. He is a disgrace to the legal profession and should be disbarred."]
