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 5: Golden Era
The fifth episode of "Aftermath" focuses on former Sea Organization members Marc and Claire Headley. It recounts their experiences as active members within the Sea Org and their story of how they ultimately left. The "Aftermath" production received a letter from the Church about the Headleys, which seeks to undermine the credibility of both Marc and Claire. The letter from the Church has been redacted to protect the names of certain individuals, but the highlighting in the accompanying documents is original. The Church letter along with various attachments, including the Church of Scientology International White Paper titled "Marc and Claire Headley - Anti-Scientologists, Unreliable Sources," and a selection of documents pertaining to the lawsuit that the Headleys filed against the Church, is below.
