Dear Mr. Kelley:
On March 26, 1975, a representative of the world wide offices of the
Church of Scientology, David Gaiman, met with Jean Nepote, Secretary
General of INTERPOL.
The purpose of that meeting was reports maintained by INTERPOL, regarding
our Church and Founder, which are false and based upon conjecture. Mr.
Nepote was given documents to indicate their falsity in the hope that the
matter which has enjoined our organizations could be quickly and easily
It is in this same spirit that I am writing to you.
Mr. Nepote has promised to ask the appropriate national authorities in
each country involved to authenticate the documents. In the United
States, that will be the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
I have already met with James B. Clawson, Deputy Assistant Secretary of
the Treasury, who is familiar not only with INTERPOL but with our request.
It was he, in fact, who recommended the March 26 meeting. Therefore, I
would like him to serve as the liaison to Mr. Nepote when the
authentication is completed.
Since you can appreciate our desire to expedite this matter, I would like
to meet with you this Monday, May 5th, at about 2 p.m. to present the
documents in question. Should that time be inconvenient, another can be
arranged as I have come to Washington, in part, to complete this matter.
I can be reached at the above number and address.
Rev. Vaughn Young
Church of Scientology
