A woman who is suing the Church of Scientology told the High Court yesterday she became very distressed during a church “auditing session” in 1992 and had recounted an event that nobody else knew about her, that she had been pregnant and had had an abortion.
She had no money but had taken out a loan to set up her business.
She said Mr Keane said he would not accept that. He became extremely aggressive and intimidating.
When she repeated that she did not have the money, he kept insisting. He then became angry. Subsequently she told Tom Cuningham she was never going in there again.
Mr Cunningham had arranged for her to meet Gerard Ryan in August 1993. She was taken into a partitioned room.
One of two main questions asked was whether there was anything in her past “which you do not mind owning”. She did not know what Mr Ryan meant and he did not explain.
The hearing, before Mr Justice Peart, continues today.
