Aftermath Letters, Ep 7

During the making of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath the Church of Scientology was invited to make a contribution, and to respond to the allegations made against it. The Church of Scientology declined to be interviewed, but instead delivered a number of documents to the programmes’ producer denying the allegations made against it, and in turn making a number of counter allegations against individuals who appear in the series. A number of these have been reproduced below to provide a wider understanding of the Church of Scientology’s perspective. The opinions expressed, and the allegations made, in these documents belong solely to the Church of Scientology, and are not those of A+E Networks UK.

Episode 7: Enemies of the Church

The seventh episode of "Aftermath" focuses on two primary subjects: (1) Brandon Reisdorf and his family's experiences with Scientology, mental illness, and his ultimate prosecution for vandalism of the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles, and (2) discussion among a panel of journalists who have reported on Scientology. The Church did not send letters specific to any of the participants in this episode. However, in a September 9, 2016 letter discrediting Ms. Remini (posted here under Episode 1), the Church discussed Brandon Reisdorf's arrest and suggested that Ms. Remini inspired his actions. Below is the letter that includes portions pertaining to Mr. Reisdorf along with two documents provided by the Church that relate to the incident.
