    Villefranche : l'anti-scientologue assigné par un avocat américain



    Pour avoir pris pour cible, sur le net, un avocat américain, défenseur de la secte, Roger Gonnet comparaissait hier devant le tribunal correctionnel de Villefranche pour provocation à un crime ou délit et injures.

    LE SECTICIDE " : le nom du site internet créé en 1997 par Roger Gonnet donne le ton. Dans sa croisade anti-scientologie, cet habitant du nord du Rhône, déploie une remarquable énergie pour dénoncer les pratiques de la secte. M. Gonnet se targue d'avoir le plus important site du monde anti-scientologie en langue française.

    Roger Gonnet n'a pas toujours été du même côté de la barrière. Membre du mouvement de 1974 à 1982, il a créé l'Organisation scientologique lyonnaise. "J'ai aidé l'église de Scientologie avec une bonne foi partielle. J'ai toujours eu des doutes et exercé une certaine critique durant mon adhésion à la secte", confiait-il dans les colonnes du Monde en juin dernier. Hier, devant le tribunal correctionnel de Villefranche-sur-Saône, Roger Gonnet était prévenu de provocation non suivie d'effet à commettre un crime ou un délit et d'injure publique. " Pourquoi ne tues-tu pas Moxon ? " , demandait Roger Gonnet dans un e-mail rendu public sur un forum pour internautes. Moxon est l'avocat américain de la " Church of scientology ". Il est également celui qui, pour ces quelques mots, l'a traîné devant la juridiction caladoise.

    " Personne n'a pu prendre ça au sérieux, se défend Roger Gonnet, c'était une plaisanterie entourée de smileys " (symbole qui permet à un internaute de signifier un trait d'humour, Ndlr). Gonnet présente l'avocat comme le " numéro 3 mondial de la scientologie dans le monde. [nota: j'avais dit N° 3 mondial du légal de la sciento, pas du n° 3 général] C'est d'ailleurs la secte qui lui a payé ses études de droit assure le prévenu, il est un de ceux qui a réussi à pervertir le système judiciaire américain ".

    Le défenseur parisien de M. Moxxon plante le décor : " Il ne doit pas y avoir d'identifications entre le défenseur et le client. Défendre un pédophile, ce n'est pas défendre la pédophilie. C'est erroné d'un point de vue intellectuel et dangereux ". Etablissant un parallèle avec les ligues américaines anti-IVG, les menaces et les agressions subies par les médecins, le défenseur estime que " quelqu'un de déséquilibré aurait pu prendre ce message au sérieux. M. Gonnet ne peut pas garantir que tous ceux qui liront ce message auront sa sagesse et son sens de l'humour ". Il réclamera dix mille francs de dommages et intérêts. Quant aux injures, elles se résument à deux termes: " idiot, criminel". Une affaire de principe pour l'accusation.

    Maître Delmas, pour la défense, émettra des doutes de la preuve de la diffusion des propos incriminés sur le net. L'avocat reviendra longuement sur le combat de son client. De son cheminement et de sa croisade. A la sortie du Palais de justice, un responsable parisien de l'église de Scientologie a fait le trajet. Il attend les journalistes. Jean-Louis Gagnot explique pourquoi les propos de Roger Gonnet sont dangereux et pourquoi l'homme n'est, selon lui, pas crédible. " Qu'il nous critique, pas de problèmes, mais les menaces, non. Nous ne laisserons rien passer ! ", prévient le scientologue. La décision a été mise en délibéré au 26 février.

    Villefranche :the anti-scientology assigned by an american attorney



    To have targeted on the Net an american attorney defending the cult, Roger Gonnet was before the penal Court of Villefranche sur Saône for "provocation to commit a crime" or misdemeanour of insult.

    LE SECTICIDE " : the title of the website created in 1997 by Roger Gonnet gives the pitch. In its anti-scientology crusade, this man linving in the north of the Rhône dept, shows a remarkable energy to denounce the practices of the cult. M. Gonnet says he has the largest world-wide website against
    scientlogy in french language.

    Roger Gonnet has not always been on the same opinion. member of this movement from 1974 to 1982, he crated the Lyon scientology organization. I have helped the scientology church with a good faith. I've always had doubts and have criticized the cult when I was a member, did he say in the
    'Le Monde' columns in june 2001. Yesterday, before the penal Court in Villefranche sur Saône, Roger Gonnet was charged of "incitation to a crime not having been followed of a result", and of "public insult". "Why don't you kill Moxon?" asked Roger Gonnet on an e-mail publicized on a newsgroup
    for internetizens. Moxon is the american attorney of the "Church of Scientology". He is also the one who, for these few words, complained before the Court.

    Nobody could take it as anything but a joke, replies Roger Gonnet. That was a joke with smileys. Gonnet presents the attorney as the number three WWide of scientology in the world [ndt: inexact: I've said he was the n° 3 of the legal]. It's the cult which paid his studies, and one of those having
    succeeded to pervert the american justice system."

    The parisian counsel of Mister Moxon informs: "There should never be identification between the defender and the client. Defending a pedophile is not defending the pedophily. It's wrong, intellectually speaking, and dangerous". He established some comparison between the american anti-abortion leagues, the threats suffered by doctors. The attorney says that "someone unbalanced could take this message seriously. M. Gonnet can't guarantee that those reading this message will be as wise as himself or have his humour. He ask 10000 F damages. About insults, they resume to "criminal and idiot". An affair of principles for the accusers.

    For the defender, Attorney Michel Delmas, shall demonstrate some doubts about the diffusion of the incriminated words on internet. He'll explain in detail the purpose of his client. Of his way and crusade. Waiting at the doors of the Justice Court, a parisian official of the church of scientology has travelled to Villefranche. He's waiting journalists. Jean-Louis Gagnot explains why the words of Roger Gonnet are dangerous and why the man is, according to him, not credible. "No problems if he criticizes us, but threats, no! We won't let that be done.", says the scientologist.

    The decision has been reported to 24 of February.

    GEOFFREY MERCIER



    My observations:

    the accomplice of the criminal cult, Jean-Louis Gagnot, dares to call the messages as "threats", and dares to say that I'm 'allowed to criticize the cult'. But 'ill resume the story:

    sept 82: I'm to be "declared" on orders from the criminal Miscavige. The stupid Wargniez obeys.
    sept/nov 82: I keep on working FOR the scam scientology.
    nov 82: the FOLO mission comes with a french attorney; they lie like mads about my wife and me and get a false and illegal declaration "expelling us from the association"; since we were STILL scienos despite this, we went to Kopenhagen to "handle"
    ... meanwhile, the "mission" moves the org to the city center, drugs and crime area.
    dec 82: we leave scientology.
    jan 83: they start to defame us so as to try to recuperate some of the clients that our leave had upset, and who left the scam then.
    fev 83: They refuse to sign up a legal document despite the fact that I had bought back and paid a good price the shares of the civil company owning the building (87 % shares of that civil thing were ours, the assoc having 10 %).
    83-2002: lots of libel and defamations about me
    .../...
    later in 1996: perhaps one month after I had started to speak of the cult on internet, I had the first call from an old friend of mine, explaining that a "strange company was asking news about me", etc.

    Since, numerous attempts to defame me near journalists etc. The larger Fair-Gaming and intimidation and threats started two years ago. Two of their PIs have been arrested and are probably on probe or so - I've no access to that file, being no complainant, though a victim (would the PIs have been clams, I'd have sued them). I detected recently another one, and lots of "strange demands" to "trap me doing illegal things" were done since. Not to speak of the probably faked ads for pornos, pedos, and so on.

    And YES, my words are very dangerous for the scam called church of scientology. But certainly not for the life of any scientologist, despite the fact that some of them will go to jail for such activities.
