UPDATE: We can now publish the names of those declared. They are:
Sophy Thlabadira, Candice Mitton (nee Corbett), Lawrence Retief and Jenny Retief. All 4 were named interested parties of the recent committee of evidence. We await the fate of the remaining 11. But be sure that this purge is not over.
We can confirm that a second wave of suppressive person declares is underway. More details and names will be released later today or over the weekend.
But as it stands now we can confirm that 4 more South African Scientologists have been declared and we expect a lot more. One rumour has the count at 21 but this is probably way too crazy even for the church.
The four we know of so far account for a combined 130 years of Scientology experience.
This constitutes a purge like no other in the history of Scientology in South Africa. This brings the SP count in less than 3 months to 25 and climbing rapidly. This will only serve to create further frustration and anger within the field. Hell, Scientologists are being declared faster than they can be made.
The point should be made that If GAT II were such an overwhelming success they wouldn’t even be bothering with all this. If there were Scientologists rushing into the orgs in great numbers they wouldn’t care about all the mad squirrels running around. It is the very lack of response to GAT II and the uproar among its community that is forcing them to act wildly and desperately.
We will bring you more details as we get them.
