Martin Ottmann on Jaquier, Darling, Rhyner, Mousiol, etc

Patron Meritorious the Jody Darling way
Tue, 10 Sep 1996
The next development was accidentally discovered by Albert later
and explained, for him, not only the use of the IAS office by Darling to
send and receive his business faxes but also Darling's failure to repay the
loan. In the IAS magazine "Impact" Iss # 28, there is a photograph of
Darling being congratulated by Heber Jentzsch on JANUARY 13, 1990 for
buying his Patron Meritorious!! So Darling paid IAS $150,000 to convert his
Patron with honors to Patron Meritorious sometime between receiving the
money from Albert and January 13,1990.
In Impact No. 27 Darling was still listed as "Patron with Honors".
This issue came out in November/December 1989. So Darling obviously
paid the 150,000 $ at the end of 1989.
Hans-Kaspar Rhyner paid 210,000 $ for his "Patron Meritorious" in
1989. I guess that money came directly from Albert. Did Rhyner covered
Albert's loan also as an investment?
Tschupp seemed to be a IAS-FSM at that time. Do you think that he was
behind the "Rhyner-cycle" too?
In fact there is a memo handwritten
by Albert to the effect that the wife of an IAS salesman confirmed that
$150,000 of the money Albert gave to Darling was paid to IAS for Darling's
Patron Meritorious. Albert had been told his money was "invested" in
Darling's company, in "stocks" and a "loan"!! On March 12, 1990 Darling
sent another fax, again from the IAS office.
When I worked in the Sea Org at the FSO it happened one night that two
Scientology-publics knocked at the door of my department in the
Coachman Building and wanted to get in. They told me that they needed
to do an "IAS-cycle" at the fourth floor. In the fourth floor happened
to be the company of the Feshbachs. I found that very strange as these
guys didn't use the official IAS-offices at the Fort Harrison for
In August 1993, having received no help from the "church" of
Scientology, Albert went to the TOP, the ultimate, highest authority alive
in Scientology, CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD, RELIGIOUS TECHNOLOGY CENTER,
COMMANDER DAVID MISCAVIGE!!!!!
Albert's assistant, Louise Cournoyer, wrote the letter but incuded a
translation of a letter in which Albert described 6 LOANS he had made to
Scientologists, Darling included, totalling $650,000 which were grossly
delinquent. Louise also mentioned Albert's serious health problems despite
being OT 7, the financial hardship generated by the delinquent debts, and
the fact Albert had reported the situation numerous times to C of S
officials and nothing had been done.
Since Religious Technology Center (RTC) is responsible for the
proper application of Scientology, we should expect Commander Miscavige to
take some firm action when confronted by such obvious outnesses. Flag
(which is claimed to render only "perfect" application of Scientology)has
given someone OT 7 (which is supposed to handle all illness and make the
person "cause over life") and he has a stroke and was in a coma.
Scientologists who have the incredibly powerful, totally workable, 100%
effective business and ethics "technologies" of Scientology do not keep
their promises and pay back their debts. They are delinquent to the tune of
$650,000. These situations are reported to Flag officials and WISE
officials whose job is to resolve the situation and these officials do
On Sept 7 1993 COMMANDER DAVID MISCAVIGE, CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD,
RELIGIOUS TECHNOLOGY CENTER wrote back to Louise and said:
Thank you for your letter concerning Mr. Albert Jacquier(sic) and the sour
investments which are not resolving.|
The policy concerning such disputes between Scientologists is to
hold a Civil Hearing. You can contact Chief Public MAA FSO if you would
like to get one called for Mr. Jacquier.
I wish you the best in getting this resolved.
Chairman of the Board
Religious Technology Center"
In 1992 I tried to solve a very similar conflict the same way. I
worked in the company of Peter Mousiol, "Patron Meritorious", who
financed the "Patron Meritorious"-status of Karlheinz Schneider and
the "Patron"-status of Roland Wolz. The IAS-FSM Kay Barre received
100,000 $ FSM-commission out of these deals. The money had been taken
out of the company of Peter and left it in bancruptcy. In Autumn of
1992 I reported it to all the levels of the hierarchy of Scientology,
demanding the IAS-money back into the company. From the "Reports
Officer RTC" I got a letter back with almost the same wording.
Janet Light, the Director IASA wrote me in another insignificant
responding letter, that "she hopes that I can resolve the situation".
As Albert continued to ask for his refund C of S officials stopped
even pretending to assist him. At the beginning of November 1994 he wrote
in his diary "I am in danger". His health continued to deteriorate and he
felt he would not survive to the end of the year. He died on December 11
1994, alone, impoverished, in misery, betrayed, disillusioned, depressed
and less than 60 years old. Scientology had promised him freedom, health,
happiness, success, immortality, power and longevity. In the hope of
achieving these, he had given till he had no more to give.
In Impact No. 8 from 1986 Albert Jaquier is featured together with a
picture of him on a motorcycle. The text about him is as follows:
"Albert Jaquier is from Switzerland and now lives in Florida. He is
New OT 5 and is training on Level 0. He has been a Scientologist for
In addition to making large donations to the Association's "war
chest", Albert has financed the distribution of 70,000 copies of the
booklet The Way To Happiness in Switzerland. These have been
distributed in the rooms of every hotel in Geneva, and also placed in
the waiting rooms of hairdressers, doctors and others.
Together with Fernand Pasche, a Lifetime member of the Association,
Albert is the founder of a "Way To Happiness"-Association in
Switzerland, the purpose of which is to get the precepts of The Way To
Happiness taught in schools.
On becoming a Patron of the Association, Albert said, "Supporting the
International Association financially is a very real way of helping
the fourth dynamic. I believe there is only one chance for this
universe and that is the Scientology religion. Therefore it is vital
that the Scientology religion survives and expands. The Association is
the assurance that this will happen.
It is extremely vital that the Association has large amounts of money
to make that assurance certain. It is our hope for the future, for
ourselves, for all mankind and for this universe."
Ironically enough, that another "Patron" who got featured in this
article, was the German Dr. Rudolf Willems. He shot himself in 1987,
after he had spent millions of Dollars for Scientology and his steel
company sailed into bancruptcy.
