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 1: Disconnection
The first episode of "Aftermath" focuses on Leah Remini's and Amy Scobee's experiences within Scientology and departures from the Church. Upon learning of Ms. Remini's and Ms. Scobee's involvement, the Church of Scientology International sent letters to the "Aftermath" production providing information intended to discredit both women by criticizing their veracity and motives, and attacking their character. Although Ms. Remini is prominently featured in all eight episodes of the series, we include the Church of Scientology International's letter about her here along with the letter about Ms. Scobee and the Church's "White Paper" titled "Amy Scobee - Anti-Scientologist, Discredited Source" because she is a primary focus of the episode. The letter regarding Ms. Remini has been redacted to protect the privacy of individuals not featured in this series.
