There's a lot of news these days about Scientology, the wicked reli-scam founded by flimflam man Ron L. Hubbard. A group calling itself "Anonymous" has declared war on the brainwashers and taken down websites. Of course Scientology, true to form, fought back with its own videos and cyber attacks. How crazy do people get who end up in the cult? Watch a leaked video of actor Tom Cruise, second man of the group, who - well, let's just say it's scary.
But! What does this have to do with Panama?
That's where you come in, dear reader. Here's two bits of information:
One: In November 2005, First Lady Vivian de Torrijos traveled to Los Angeles and met there with a number of groups that are ALL Scientology front organizations, such as ABLE and NARCONON. Why? We don't know. Is she a member? We don't know for sure. But she is obviously not troubled by Scientology's weirdness and human rights abuses. Should the state be paying for Vivian's meetings with wacko reli groups? We don't think so.
Two: There is this web site, The Freezone Scientologist, and on its terms and conditions page it says:
"This Site is controlled, operated and administered by the Freezonescientologist from its offices within Panama. The Freezonescientologist makes no representation that materials at this site are appropriate or available for use at other locations outside of Panama and access to them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited.

What we would like from you is tips and information. Who are these people? Who are the members? What are their activities? Is it true they have regular meetings at the Paitilla Inn? Where are these offices? Are there any victims? Contact us here and we'll treat everything confidentially.
