I, GERALD ARMSTRONG, declare and state that:

1. I have made a previous declaration in this matter

and reiterate that I was a member of Scientology from 1969 to

1981 and involved in litigation with various Scientology entities

hereinafter referred to as "the Organization" since 1982 to the

present. I am familiar with many of the witnesses, and attorneys and

victims who have been involved with various Scientology

litigations and I have previously met and recognize the voice of

Barry Van Sickle.

2. In the afternoon of July 16, 1991, I was present

at the Law Offices of Joseph A. Yanny when Mr. Yanny received a

telephone call from Mr. Barry Van Sickle which phone call was

placed upon the speaker phone. I heard the conversation between

Mr. Van Sickle and Mr. Yanny at that time and in its entirety.

During the course of the conversation, Mr. Van Sickle recounted a

conversation that he had had with Messrs. Quinn and Drescher

regarding settlement of litigation between Bent Corydon and the

organization. Mr. Van Sickle stated that he had attended a

number of such meetings at which settlement was discussed and

that, at one particular meeting, a settlement document was

transferred by Mr. Drescher to Mr. Van Sickle with respect to the

Corydon litigation.

3. Mr. Van Sickle stated that, during the course of

the aforementioned meeting, Messrs. Quinn and Drescher had stated

that the objective of the settlement was to make peace. Mr. Van

Sickle stated that Mr. Drescher stated, while handing over the

settlement agreement, that he realized that the settlement

agreement, as proposed, was harsh in its terms. Mr. Van Sickle

stated further that Mr. Drescher indicated that while he realized

it was unethical to suggest such a thing, it was the desire of

his clients to have Mr. Van Sickle and Ms. Toby Plevin out of the

Scientology litigation business.

I declare under the penalty of perjury under the laws of the

United States and the State of California that the foregoing is

true and correct and based on my personal knowledge, except those

matters stated on information and belief, and as to those

matters, I am informed and believe them to be true.

Executed this 16th day of July, 1991 at Los Angeles,

California.
