SUPPLEMENTAL DECLARATION OF VICKI AZNARAN

I, Vicki Aznaran, declare:

1. I joined the Church of Scientology of California

("Scientology") in 1972, and was a member until I left in April

1987. From 1984 until 1987, I was Inspector General of the

Religious Technology Center, an affiliated Scientology

organization. At that time, this was one of the highest

worldwide offices in Scientology. One of my offices was located

at 4751 Fountain Avenue, Los Angeles.

2. By virtue of my high position, I was "in the loop" to

receive communications about some of Scientology's most secret

operations. The facts set forth in this declaration are based

on my own personal knowledge, which came from many sources,

including numerous discussions and meetings with top Scientology

"intelligence officials" and other Scientologists and reading

documents which passed across my desk or came to my computer.

3. During the 1984-87 period, Scientology operated a

number of "dirty tricks" operations out of the office of Special

Affairs (OSA), including one called MFTC (for "Mission Find The

Crimes") and the "WOLLY" unit (which targeted Lawrence

Wollersheim, his attorneys, and his case). The orders for these

operations would go directly from OSA to private investigators,

although Scientology deceitfully tries to cloak such operations

under "attorney-client privilege".

4. MFTC and the WOLLY unit each had about 8-10 staff, and

engaged in whatever dirty tricks were necessary to attack people

and entities which were considered to be "enemies" of

Scientology. The dirty tricks they used included destruction of

evidence, theft of documents, illegal surveillance or bugging,

blackmail, bribery, physical assault and other intimidation,

securing perjured testimony. MFTC's mssion was to find or

manufacture crimes for "enemies" of Scientology.

5. Before and during the trial in Wollersheim v Church of

Scientology of California, MFTC and WOLLY ran a number of

operations directed against Wollersheim, his counsel, and the

Court. One of these operations was an attempt to put pressure

on Bill Swearinger, the son of the trial judge in the Wollersheim

case, based on his alleged homosexuality. The idea was to dig

up, or manufacture (perhaps by setting the son up in a

compromising sexual position with a minor boy), dirt on the son

which could be used to pressure the Judge to rule favorably for

Scientology, or else to get the Judge disqualified.

6. Attached as Exhibit A is a true copy of an internal

Scientology memorandum, dated 6/21/86, which discusses this

"Swearinger Investigation". I received a hard copy of this

document at about that time, and I believe I also received a copy

of this document on my computer. The Linda referred to on the

first page is Linda Hamil, who at the time ran the MFTC. The

Marty referred to on the first page is Marty Rathbun, a top

Scientology "intelligence" official, who ran this operation.

7. Scientology's "ambush interview", discussed in Exhibit

A, makes the Mike Wallace/60 Minutes interview called by the same

name look tame. The "ambush interview" generally involves doing

whatever it takes -- threats, physical force, bribery, or

whatever -- to get an unprepared and unsuspecting target to say

what is wanted.

8. I understand that Lynn Farny has submitted a

declaration stating that Scientology complied with Judge

Swearinger's order in the Wollersheim case to produce

Wollersheim's pre-clear files. This is false. As I stated in

my Fishman declaration, I personally culled and destroyed

(shredded) from these files evidence which would help Wollersheim

and hurt Scientology in the case. I was personally ordered to

do so by David Miscavige, the head of Scientology, and Marty

Rathbun. The culling and destruction took place at the Fountain

Avenue building in Los Angeles. I was assisted in the document

destruction by then Scientologist Jessie Prince. Lynn Farny was

a low level Scientology official, and was not at the meetings

where this was discussed. However, Lynn Farny is not telling the

truth, because as a Scientology staff member he knows it is

Scientology policy never to turn over information in litigation

without first culling out (deleting and destroying) material that

will harm Scientology. It is also, however, Scientology policy

to lie to cover up such misdeeds.

9. Attached as Exhibit "B" to this declaration is a true

copy of a document called "TR L", which is a Scientology training

drill to teach Scientologists to lie convincingly.

10. I understand Scientology is trying to vacate

Wollersheim's judgment on grounds that Judge Swearinger was

biased against Scientology and his bias infected the jury. This

is a typical Scientology tactic which it frequently uses in

trials as insurance when Scientology loses an important case.

Scientology will do things to set up a mistrial, such as calling

jurors in the middle of the night and hanging up, threatening

them, etc. Then Scientology claims that it has been the victim

of the opposition's dirty tricks and the jury has become biased

against Scientology.

11. Scientology also ran operations against Wollersheim's

counsel, Charles O'Reilly, and his law firm. This included

bugging O'Reilly's house, placing an agent in the clerical staff

in O'Reilly's law firm, and attempting to set him and his

bodyguards up with girls. The purpose was to discover attorney-

client strategy and secrets and get or manufacture information

which could compromise O'Reilly.

12. Attached as Exhibit "C" is a true copy of portions of

the transcript of my deposition on August 2 and 3, 1989, in RTC

v. Scott and RTC v. Wollersheim, USDC-CDCal, CV 85-711 and 85-

7197 JMI (Bx).

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

State of California, that the foregoing is true and correct.

Executed this 29th day of June, 1993

  [signed]
Vicki Aznaran
