Re: Gerald Armstrong.
Dear Dr. Kent,
I am writing to you on behalf of Church of Scientology International. It has come to our attention that you have been engaged in various activities in conjunction with Gerald Armstrong which fall within the general category of anti- Scientology public statements. These have included trips to Europe where you and Mr. Armstrong have appeared together at various public gatherings, all with the same anti-religious agenda.
Enclosed is a copy of an injunction issued against Mr. Armstrong as well as those “acting in concert” with him. Clearly, you have acted in concert with Mr. Armstrong, thus this court order applies to you. You are hereby on notice of this injunction and that you are bound by its terms.
Very truly yours,
[signed] Elliot Abelson
