A DONEGAL representative of the Church of Scientology has admitted that parts of a propaganda video suggesting it helped reduce Irish drug crime by 85 per cent was a reenactment.
It comes after the front page of this newspaper, with a mock-up lead story, featured in the video.The video also portrays “interviews” supposedly carried out by the group on BBC Radio Foyle and Ocean FM as well as piece in the Inishowen Independent.
Mr Columba Gill, editor, Donegal News, described the front page depicted on the video as ‘bogus’ while both radio stations said the interviews had been faked.
“That front page never existed,” said Mr Gill. “The story was reported in the paper, but nothing like in that manner,” he said.
