Scientology's Leader, David Miscavige Has Been Served!

"Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige has finally been served in the scathing child trafficking and kidnapping lawsuit filed by ex-member Valerie Haney.

In court papers obtained from Los Angeles Superior Court, Miscavige, 59, was served on October 10, 2019 at Church of Scientology International in Los Angeles, California.

According to the process server, the documents were left with a “John Doe,” who is listed as a “Front Desk Agent.”

The documents were also mailed to the Defendants.
 
The Sea Org, in large part, functions by way of human trafficking, including the trafficking of children,” the filing read. “Defendants engage in the forced labor of adults and children in the Sea Org. Defendants have made billions off the backs of men, women, and children who are trafficked and forced to work 75 to 100 hour weeks for far below the minimum wage with little to no free time or vacation under the threat of severe punishment for failure to perform their work duties.”

From what we have gathered from former members of Scientology there are many former and current executives within the organization that should be held accountable for these charges.

As with the NXIVM case, the leader Kieth Raniere wasn't the only one responsible for the harmful acts committed against the vulnerable woman.

But we will have to wait and see how this plays out in the courts, for now it is some progress.
