eldavojohn writes “A formal complaint was filed in California (caged PDF) last week by John Lindstein naming David Miscavige and the Church of Scientology International as defendants. Lindstein claims that for sixteen years (from age 8) he was forced to work as a slave at Gold Base, a secret CoS site run by Golden Era Productions with ‘razor wire, security guard patrols, surveillance posts, and three roll calls each day.’ The pay was $50 a week. The allegations include ‘Violations of wage and hour laws as well as unfair/illegal business practices actionable under California B&P 17200 Et. Seq.’ and a complaint under the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution, which abolished slavery. Members of the group Anonymous praised the summons.”
