Jack Dirmann Declaration / October 16 2002

We've learned from a trusted source that Jack Dirmann had complete access to Reed Slatkin's offices for 10 days straight. According to numerous witnesses, this happened about a month before Reed filed for bankruptcy.

Dirmann allegedly had a set of keys and was there day and night going through documents and computer files.

So Who is Jack Dirmann?

It's long been known that Jack's wife Irene Dirmann holds more clout within the Church of Scientology than Jack himself..

Check out this revealing 'EXECUTIVE DIRECTIVE' that Irene wrote back in 1968 (then Irene Dunleavy) that lays out "A plan for setting up Scientology in businesses and taking responsibility for this area."

She signs the Directive - IRENE DUNLEAVY Staff LRH Comm. (Communicator) for L. RON HUBBARD Commodore."

He is a Scientologist with with his own 'Our Sites' page.

He has Sea Org ties (the Sea Org is the paramilitary 'hardcore' wing of Scientology):
"Some time around late 1976, Wayne Marple was sent to PAC (Pacific Area Command) with orders from Hubbard. The mission was dubbed "A Commodore's Mission" and was run from Flag as FMO 1674. (FMO means Flag Mission Order). Wayne had another "missionnaire" by the name of Jack Dirmann as his "Mission 2nd". Jack's wife at the time was Irene Dirmann, who was the Commanding Officer at ASHO Day, which was the "org" I was working in."

He and his wife Irene are listed as having $1,793,072.40 invested with Slatkin in late 1999. Furthermore, there are 3 other Dirmann accounts with Slatkin (James, Madeline, & Margaret J.) totalling $930,039.74.

He was a member of FASE "Foundation for Advancements in Science and Education"

This excerpt is from LA Times article "The Scientology Story"
"One of these groups is the Los Angeles-based Foundation for Advancements in Science and Education. The nonprofit foundation has forged links with scientists across the country to gain legitimacy for itself and, thus, for Hubbard's detox method.

Among its key functionaries is a toxicologist for the Environmental Protection Agency, whose advocacy of the treatment has raised conflict-of-interest questions."
The same article continues...
"According to state corporate records, the foundation also holds stock in HealthMed. Moreover, the foundation's vice president, Scientologist Jack Dirmann, has served as HealthMed's administrator.

In 1986, four doctors with the California Department of Health Services accused HealthMed of making "false medical claims" and of "taking advantage of the fears of workers and the public and about toxic chemicals and their potential health effects, including cancer." The doctors also criticized the foundation for supporting "scientifically questionable" research."
More on FASE in this newsgroup post from Diane Richardson.

In recent years, FASE seems to have lost its connections to Scientology.

From there, Jack Dirmann's life goes in numerous directions..

Jack received a grant from NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR CHILDREN'S EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION GRANT AWARDS FOR FISCAL YEAR 1993 for $300,000 for the development of a prospective television series.

So what does this add up to? While the whole picture isn't yet clear, we do know that Jack Dirmann is a Scientologist who, until now, has been invisible as far as research into the recent history of Reed Slatkin goes. And know we hear from multiple witnesses that Dirmann had carte blanche access to the computer and hard copy files of Reed Slatkin, just prior to bankruptcy.
