Valeska Paris: Scientology Held her Prisoner for 12 years
Meet Valeska Paris the young woman who tells her story where since at very young age she was kept prisoner at a Scientology cruise ships, working for long hours, she also request Scientology leader David Miscavige to be put on trial.
Valeska Paris was born in Switzerland to a Scientology family her mother is Ariane Jackson and her father Albert Jaquier a self made millionaire spend the last days of his life in poverty before he took his own life he blame the church of Scientology of ripping him of his fortune, his memories were left in a diary he kept, this diary was enough for Valeska Paris’ mother tried to get some recompensation for the tragedy from Scientology, but they refuse to so she talked to French Television and denounced Scientology.
The various methods used to persuade [Jaquier] to pay money…included daylong interviews by groups of salesmen, “investment opportunities”, donations to translate a book, donations to “protect Scientology”, etc…Two of the “investment opportunities” where he loaned almost half a million dollars in 1989 to a “patron” and a “patron meritorious” of the International Association of Scientologists”(IAS) turned out to be very bad “investments”…Their failure to repay him added to the fact he had given so much of his money to Scientology ruined him financially. The stress arising from his bad financial position aggravated a heart condition for which he could not afford proper medical care and which he had been persuaded Scientology would resolve. This illness killed him before he could recover the money owed to him.
When Miscavige and the rest of the Scientology clan found out about that they grew afraid she would take Valeska with her, so he ordered that Paris who was 17 at that time to be taken to Flag Land Base, in Clearwater, Florida until the next year when she turned 18th, and she was send to the church’s cruise “The Freewinds” where Scientology’s highest level counseling course Operating Thetan Level Eight is delivered.
Just 10 years before when she was 6 she moved to Scientology’s headquarters in the UK and was placed in its then youth wing, the Cadet Org. By the time she was 14 Valeska joined the Church’s elite Sea Organization, signing a contract binding her for years.
I was basically pulled in and told that my mum had attacked the Church and that I needed to disconnect from her because she was suppressive To disconnect and have no connections at all with her or with anyone that she’s connected to. He decided the ship. And I found out two hours before my plane left – I was woken up in the morning and I was sent to the ship for “two weeks”.
But it wasn’t two weeks, but 12 years where she wasn’t allow for the first 6 years to leave the ship without an escort, where she work for long hours sometimes for 48 hours without no sleep..
“Well, the schedule in the Sea Org is very different than in the real world. You’d get up at 6 and go to work, and you’d work until midnight. In 1997 and 1998, after our regular jobs we were up every night until 4 am cleaning up asbestos,” she says. “There was rubble on the deck. We’d have to go behind the guys doing renovations, vacuuming up dirt until 4 in the morning.
“It’s hot, it’s extremely loud, it’s smelly, it’s not nice. But I was sent down there at first for 48 hours straight on almost no sleep and I had to work by myself. I wasn’t allowed to work with anyone else. And I don’t know if I went unconscious or if I fell asleep, but I was cleaning some part of an engine and it’s extremely loud and I was just out for like four hours, and then this guy came and shook me four hours later and he said that I was unconscious.
She said she never tried to escape nor did she could.
No. They take your passport when you go on the ship, so – and you’re in the middle of an island, so it’s a bit hard. And I was like – by that time I was 18. So, I didn’t really – I’d been in Scientology my whole life. It’s not like I knew how to escape.
As the years passed came the time when she was sent to Scientology’s RPF or Rehabilitation Project Force in Sidney where she me her son to be hubby Chris Guider. St. George rugby league captain, they left the church soon after today they reside in Sidney with their gorgeous son Declan.
Scientology rep said Valeska Paris was never force to stay on the ship..
She certainly wasn’t ‘forced’ to be there. She was also never forced to perform labor in the engine room. The Freewinds is a wonderful place, as even Valeska said on numerous occasions. Her allegation that she could only leave the ship with an escort is totally false.
Valeska wants justice and a trial for the Scientology leader..
It’s not right for someone to be running the Church and basically take advantage of, you know, a church and hiding behind religion to live like a king and to abuse people around him. That man doesn’t like anyone. He’s a psychopath.
