Last week the Dutch tax exemption for Scientology has been revoked. A little background. Between 1996 and 2004 Scientology litigated to obtain tax exemption in the Netherlands. They did not succeed, because they failed to pass the public benefit test. Their next move was to create a fake foundation, Nabesa, for which they were able to obtain tax exeption. Last Febuary I obtained evidence that the CoS was abusing the tax exemption to solicit donations for the Dutch Ideal Org. This lead to some modest press attention and parliamentary questions, which were answered in a very bland way a few months later (but that´s how the game is played). The relevant thread is here: https://whyweprotest.net/community/threads/dutch-cos-buys-building.100748/. Luckily the tax office did take action after all and they removed the tax exemption last week! The ANBI register for tax exempt organisations still included Nabesa on July 3rd (Google cache so page will eventually disappear): http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...besa&p=&Submit=Zoek &cd=4&hl=nl&ct=clnk&gl=nl. However, as of last week the search result comes up empty: http://18.104.22.168/anbi_zoeken_lwcm/search.php?q=nabesa&p=&Submit=Zoek. Also, the Nabesa website changed from http://scamofscientology.nl/img/nabesa.jpg to http://nabesa.nl/, providing further evidence that their tax free status has been yanked. So yay for government officials doing their job! I also promised bonus announcements and actually I got two: Firstly, the Dutch CoS primary school closed down: http://www.lafayette-school.nl/nieuws.html. This is actually last month's news, but it hadn't been posted here yet. They are attempting to reopen a school in Amsterdam (http://debrugkrant.nl/nieuwe-kleinschalige-school-voor-de-toekomst-op-ijburg/), but it is unclear how succesfull this attempt is. Secondly, as David Love already hinted in another thread, the Healthcare inspection opened an investigation into Narconon. The confirmation is here: http://scamofscientology.nl/img/NarcononIgZ.jpg. I have asked David to act as contact person (since I prefer not to get namefagged) and he is working on sending some more dox to the good people at the Health Inspection.
