I'm trying to compile as complete a list as possible of people who have
been held against their will by SCientology. Somewhere I saw a reference
to someone held against their will in a book reference, but I don't remember
the reference. If you know of any cases that I don't have in my web page,
please let me know with the proper reference. Thanks.
Hey Truth Seeker, why don't you have a web site?

I know of many people who were held against there will. Documenting
most of them is difficult, but start here with Homer Schomer. I have
webbed a part of the transcript of his trial testimony in 1984 in
Scientology v. Armstrong, LASC 420153.
And below is from that partial trial transcript.
Q BY MR. FLYNN: During the period of time --
after the security check were you locked up?
A Yes. I was locked up under guard for the next
Q Who was the guard?
A It was actually an auditor. His name slips my
mind right now. I probably have it in my briefcase that I
wrote it down. But I am not sure.
But he really didn't have any knowledge of why
he was guarding me. But he was --
Q At some point in time did you manage to leave?
A Yes. On Sunday morning, he -- while I was in
the shower he said he was going down to change clothes because
he thought he was guarding me for some spiritual reason,
so I could get some good rest to further my spiritual release
Q Did he tell you that?
A Yes, he did.
Q All right.
A And the minute he told me that and I heard the
door slam, I got out of the shower; got dressed and got the
hell out of there.
There is some other material in the transcript that would be usable
for your purpose, including Homer's testimony about his being gang
bang sec checked by Miscavige and his gang of thugs, and being spat on
with gobs of tobacco juice by Miscavige and Starkey during the ten
hour gang bang. Certainly Homer was held against his will during this
application of standard Scientology technology.
I think it is an excellent idea and project to document these
incarceration abuses and crimes online. Thanks.
I see you've included my being locked up and guarded on Hubbard's
order in the Intelligence Bureau at GO US in 1976. Thanks for that
