Public MAA - April Buchanan

April Buchana has been calling up Debra and Greg Barnes personal friends and showing them a bill of particulars that has yet to be proven true as well as a K/R written by April Buchanan on Greg and Debra Barnes and Virginia McClaughry. The K/R written by April was partially withdrawn by April in that it contained opinion but it is not withdrawn in the report that she is showing others.

April's procurring of our friends and the showing of a bill of particulars violates HCOPL 7 December 1969 The Ethics Officer, His Character - "An E/O should never discuss staff members who are merely under investigation or act in a way to 3rd party people. An E/O gets the facts and then acts."

On or about the middle of May April Buchanan public MAA Sandcastle showed to Larry Geis a friend of ours from Dallas Texas who was here for his six month check our bill of particulars and other K/R's on us. Larry Geis is not involved with this comm ev or even a witness. Larry then went to David and Bennetta Slaughter and told them to go see this bill of particulars and they in turn told Jeff and Sherly Schaffner and Craig Burton who in turn told one Brenda Spencer to go see the bill of particulars.

April's actions are covered in HCOPL 25 August 1969 Third Party Investigations. "3RD Party = False Report, Anyone that went into agreement with him carried it forward, usually believing it to be true." April's actions also violated HCOPL 16 May 1980 Ethics Suppressive Acts Suppression of Scientology and Scientologists specifically "engaging in malicious rumor-mongering to destroy the authority or repute of one's fellows" also "outright or covert acts knowlingly designed to impede or destroy Scientology or Scientologists is what is meant by Acts of Suppressive of Scientology or Scientologists."

I confronted April Buchanan on the phone as to why she had shown our friends the bill of particulars since she knew that the recommendation and findings were not out yet and she stated "people are calling me and asking to see it". This statement is false since Larry Geis did not even know of its existence till April Buchanan showed it to him and he told others. April also called on Steve and Pam Hackley and she tried to tell Pam Hackley over the phone and Pam told her she did not want to hear it. Steve Hackley a long time friend of mine who is on OT7 went down to see the bill of particulars and now he won't let his 9 year old son even go to the movies with my 8 year old.


A person who I have known since 1979 wrote me a comm stating " I am aware of your situation/cycle with our church. I read the bill of particulars at the Sandcastle MAA office last week. I am not interested in any verbal or written comm from you or Debra until you handle your ethics situation scene with the appropriate terminals at Flag" - This comm came from one Craig Burton.

Two of our closest friends Jeff and Sheryl Schaffner would not even write up what they had been told or shown by April to IJC as I had asked. Jeff told me " I do not want to get into the middle of a war."

April's actions are right out of HCOPL 21 November 1972 PR Series 18 " How to Handle Black Propaganda rumors and whispering campaigns" "He counts on utterances being picked up or distorted and passed on by the base people in the society." "This is Black Progaganda. It is intended to reduce a real or imagined enemy, hurt his income and deny him friends and support".

April's actions of calling individuals known to us who have nothing to do with this comm ev or any of the points in the bill or particulars also comes right out of HCOPL 9 June 1975 PR Series 27 "The Enemy Line" - "When there is a concerted short or long term campaign going on against someone or something from a single or multiple source, there has been a black PR agreement as to what to say about that someone or something."

April's statement to me that "people are just calling her about the bill of particulars" can also be proven false by the report by one Ed Sharp who wrote a Things that shouldn't Be because the receptionist at the MAA's office (Jessica Greenwood) told her parents Derek and Rose Greenwood that we had not shown up for the comm ev and that Debra Barnes had refused to go in for a sec check on her 6 month check - both false statements made by Jessica. Ed Sharp was called by April Buchanan and told that he could come down to the MAA's office to read the bill of particulars. April told Ed it was not for general public issue but mainly for AO public.

Dereck Greenwood is a public and is partners in a software company with one Julie Lee who then calls one of my contractors Tony Reid and tells him that she heard from Dereck Greenwood about our ethics situation and then offered Tony a job. The spreading of rumors is still another example of the Black PR campaign being supported by HCO terminal April Buchanan. I also faxed to the CJC at Flag that this was going on and heard nothing back from them.

April's actions also violate HCOPL 16 May 1980 Issue II Ethics-Suppressive Acts - Suppression of Scientology and Scientologists" LRH states under Injustice:

"It must be remembered at all times that Justice must include a refusal to accept any report not substantiated by actual, independant data, seeing that all such reports are investigated and that all investigations include confronting the accused with the accusation and where feasible the accuser BEFORE any action is decided upon or taken. This is the primary breakdown of any justice system-that it acts on false reports, dicisplines before substantiation and fails to confront an accused with the report and his accuser before any discipline is assigned, or which does not weigh the value of a person in general against the alleged crime even when proven."

In Ethics Officer , His Character LRH states "An E/O can be used by an SP (with false reports or stupid orders) to needle and hurt a group. The duty of the E/O is plain. FOLLOW POLICY."

April's showing of a bill of particulars which has no IA or specifics or any verifcation of truth is in violation of policy especially HCOPL False Reports. April actions are also violations of the HCOPL 16 May 1980 Ethics - Suppressive Acts -"Outright or covert acts knowlingly designed to impede or destroy Scientology or Scientologists is what is meant by Acts of Suppressive or Scientology or Scientologists".

April's showing of the bill of particulars but conveniently leaving out our responses to the charges as well as the fact that she denied us all copies of K/R's as well as the HCO Dir of I & R denied us a copy of the Bill of Particulars which violates HCOPL Committee of Evidence. As LRH states in HCOPL 3 September 1980 Out of Sequence "Omitted data runs a close second to Out- of - Sequence as the most common outpoint." As LRH states in HCOPL 19 Sept 1970 Data Series 18 Summary of Out-points "injustice is usually a wrong target out-point."

LRH states in HCOPL 27 March 1965 "The Justice of Scientology its use and purpose being a Scientologist" "Nobody can be suspended or punished by the convening of a Committee of Evidence. It's there to find the truth." April's actions of showing the bill of particulars to our friends and others at the Sandcastle violates this HCOPL. As LRH states in this HCOPL "some are guilty most are innocent." "If a person is to keep the law, he or she must know what the law is. And must be protected from viciousness and caprice in the name of the law. If a person doesn't keep the law knowing well what it is he or she hurts all of us an should be handled."

As LRH states in HCOPL 1 July 1968 Warning Signs - "#2 An area which issues false reports can be considered to have had its ethics pass over the cliff way way back. This should be pounced on fast fast fast." April's showing to others this bill of particulars violates this HCOPL in that the Bill of Particulars violates HCOPL How to write an Ethics Order in that it contains generalities and false reports that can be disproven.
