Janice Meyer, 57, (also known as Jan Eastgate) was surrounded by supporters today as she made her first court appearance in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local court.
Fellow Scientologists violently attacked members of the media outside the Sydney court house:
The allegation involves threatening and intimidating an 11-year-old girl, causing her to give false information to investigating police about being abused by a Scientologist.
Meyer was granted conditional police bail on her arrest last month, but her lawyer Stuart Bouveng asked for her to have unconditional bail.
He said the allegation came to light in an ABC television show in May last year, when his client was living in California. […]
However, Mr Bouveng said two of her bail conditions mean she is banned from travel and was unable to go interstate to visit her elderly parents in Melbourne.
Supporters of a senior member of the Church of Scientology have clashed with the media outside a Sydney court after an appearance over allegations she coached a child to lie about sex abuse.
A large group of supporters left Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court with Janice Meyer, also known as Jan Eastgate.
Jan Eastgate / Janice Meyer is the international president of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a Church of Scientology front group that wages ongoing hate campaigns against psychiatry and psychiatrists.
