Scientology Disconnection ~ Son has a Serious Accident

I just got this note from my friend Lori Hodgson last nite.  She was very, very upset because her son Jeremy Leake, was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, is now in the hospital emergency room and she is not even allowed to see him!!!!


All this because of a disconnection policy that was cancelled back in 1968.  It is obvious that Jeremy has the wrong PTS item. Here is the story from a worried mother…



Here is my son Jeremy and his sister Jessica at the lake. They joined the SO and I have not been able to see them or talk to them again since. They are out of the SO and public now.  They were out 2 years ago and in the SO for only a short time.

I found out about his accident by a post on Facebook. No one notified me.
I called the hospitals and found out he was admitted to Santa Clara Valley Medical Hospital. I rushed over with my Dad and Stepmother to see him. I went to the ER and asked the status of my son and that I wanted to see him. I told them I was his mother.
They called to the back room where Jeremy was at and said I was here. The man at the front said, “The Hospital staff has been instructed to not let you go back to see him.” I told him “I have left the Church of Scientology and I am being shunned from seeing my son.”
Here is Lori with her children when they were a happy family before the disconnection.
Please let me see my son?”  He said “I am very sorry I can’t let you see him.” 
“With the Privacy Laws and your son being 18 I have to abide by the law.”  I asked if I could at least have his status and he said, ” No we can’t give out that information.”
Now I’m really panicked so I go around the back and wait for someone from The ER to come out. I briefly explained to a nurse what was happening and if he could please give my son a message. He said yes I can give him a written message.
The nurse brought Jeremy the message. He came back to tell me that Jeremy was alone in his room so he was able to give the note directly to him and that Jeremy said to tell me he is OK and that he doesn’t want to see anyone.   I was very relieved to hear that he was ok.
I know deep down in my heart that my son wants me with him but because of this cruel Disconnection policy of the Church of Scientology, he most likely feels forced to not break their rules!!!
I was able to find out that Jeremy broke his Femur and his Collar Bone and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow.

The Church of Scientology is violating their own policies on PTSness and disconnection.


HCOPL Cancellation of Disconnection Policy 15 November 1968


“Since we can now handle all types of cases disconnection as a condition is cancelled”


Disconnection has been Cancelled!


This was not included in the altered new Miscavige versions of the Green Volumes!

Other policy’s being violated, no, raped!   Are…



“HCOPL PTS Type A Handling of 20 October 1981″


In that policy Hubbard NEVER, EVER, mentions the word disconnection. The handling according to that policy is….


 “Get in comm with the family member until the situation is resolved” 


HCOB  of 8 March 1983, Handling PTS Situations

 It says perfectly clear…

You coach him into two way communication that is well above 2.0 on the Tone Scale, that mostly consists of acks and mild interest in what is going on… in other words, you handle this in real life..”



HCOB 10 September 1983, PTSness and Disconnection

 In the section “Lost Tech” Ron says;  “Earlier disconnection as a condition was cancelled. It had been abused by a few individuals who failed to handle situations which could have  been handled and who lazily or criminally disconnected, thereby creating situations even worse than the original, because it was the wrong action.”







I was determined to see my son and this is what happened:

My mom and I found out what room he was going to be in and we waited by the elevator near his room. After he was settled in his room, Jim his father was standing by his bedside asking Jeremy if he wanted to see me.

Before Jim finished his sentence I went over to my son and said,  “Hi Jeremy I’ve been here for you all day and I’m so glad you’re doing well. I’m going to leave now so there is not a problem for you. I hope you get well real fast and I love you so very much.”

Jeremy looked at me and said, “I love you.”

Then I went to leave and saw my daughter talking to a nurse. I went up and hugged her telling her “I miss you and love you.”  Jessica hugged me back. Then her grandma gave her a hug.

This has been one hell of an emotional 2 days for me and my family.  Thanks for all your Love and support it means a lot!!!!

From Greece with Love


Olga Vernardou

I got into Scn in 1992 in Athens, Greece. There was only one mission at that time in Greece (which eventually became an org). In 1993, I joined the SO in Los Angeles, to work in the translations unit and thus help the mission become an org. Arriving there I was posted in Management TU, FB. We only translated management issues. To translate LRH I was told I had to move up to Gold.

From that moment on, outpoints started to pile up. In my translator’s mini-hat,  I already spotted that the tech we were following was not per LRH.  And, that it didn’t make sense.  Unnecessary steps had been added. I also observed working together with another Greek translator from Gold, that LRH translations were almost impossible to get out as they had to be AVC approved.  AVC had so many rejects to handle on each piece of material that it was absurd.

However,  life was livable until 1996 when an Int Mgmt mission was fired to FB for the implementation of the New Era of Management.

  That   mission   violated   almost   every   policy   I   knew.

The structure of the org changed and almost everyone changed post overnight.  FB became FCB among other things  and even the interior of the HGB building was changed, with walls being taken down and new ones built.  I then felt that the CoS had been taken over. Shortly after that, we got the Golden Age of Tech (GAT another squirrel operation) from Int Mgmt. By that time it was clear to me that Church Management was anti-LRH.

Another interesting thing is that Greek was considered a “small language.”  So during the “drills evolution” (translation of the GAT drills into “major languages”) my junior was moved to the SAG building (Screen Actor’s Guilt on Hollywood Blvd) to help other languages in the evolution. One day with the help of two Russian translators, I loaded my computer into a van going to the  SAG building and moved there myself. When my seniors found out it was too late, the translations mission at SAG kept me there. I got my junior back and we established the Greek translations unit where we could freely do LRH translations for the first time. My husband, who was at ASHO since that time was also moved to SAG by the mission. This was the most fun part in the SO. Doing LRH translations in a sane environment, together with Gold translators.

But let me tell you about another huge outpoint. During this evolution, the unnecessary steps I mentioned in the beginning were REMOVED, as ED Int “found out” they were arbitraries! Well, this was in order to speed up the translation of DM’s squirrel drills. When the evolution was over, the very same arbitraries were put back in! The fun part was then  ended, followed with the confirmation that Int Mgmt would do anything in the direction of stopping LRH translations, in the direction of suppressing expansion of Scn.

I kept writing higher and higher, reaching COB himself in the end. I got an answer from RTC that “there are  other LRH tech in translations”  that I would only find out when moving up to GOLD!!! That left no doubt that Int Mgmt had been infiltrated. David Miscavige was obviously a plant. Besides, the fact that his programs were never standardly written (which could be easily observed ) indicated that he either did not know Scientology or he considered himself senior to LRH.

Shortly after the GAT evolution, we were sent to CLO EU,  together with most of the other management translators since TU did not belong to the new org board.

From there on, we were involved in a “counter-espionage” activity. We were researching for violations. Collecting “juicy” replies to queries, looking for alterations by comparing revised materials to the original etc. We had no idea of what had happened in 1982 and didn’t know there was an independent field outside. We stayed in hopes that we could change things from inside. But that proved impossible.

The right moment for leaving came the day that CO CLO ordered myself and my junior to M9 and starrate a COB program on translations. A squirrel program (of course). Of all the things I had been asked to do in the SO, this was the one that really seemed impossible. So,  I reread the Code of Honor. The choice I had to make was clear. At night, after work, I told my husband and my junior that I had decided to leave. After minor deliberation, all  three of us left that same night taking a cab to Sweden. We eventually arrived to Greece in August 2000.

Being out of the Church, we (my husband and I) first worked as freelance translators and then moved into advertising . We have  two children 8 and 10 years old. I have done graphics design for the past 8 years or so.

I have very few Scientology friends here (there are almost no independents in Greece) but I know a lot of people who are spiritually inclined and my effort has been to enlighten them on the most basic truths. That we are spiritual beings, with no matter, energy, space or form. That we are not really “part” of the material universe but are instead co-creating it through our considerations and participate “in it”  the same way we play a computer game.

I write articles on this like short stories in my blog. I’m also writing a “scifi” book  “Memoirs of a Spirit” with the whole track autobiography of the being relating it.

Now I have said and now you know.  Thanks for listening.
