The FBI Is Investigating Scientology for Human Trafficking

  Members of an FBI task force on human trafficking have been investigating the Church of Scientology for more than a year according to an article in this week's New Yorker. It's the scientology expose we've been all waiting for.



As expected, New Yorker staff writer Lawrence Wright's massive profile of ex-Scientologist writer-director Paul Haggis (Million Dollar Baby, Crash) in this week's New Yorker contains many interesting revelations about the Church of Scientology and the life of a prominent member. Chief among these is the existence of an ongoing FBI investigation into allegations of abuse by Scientology's leader David Miscavige, and the enslavement of members of Scientology's religious order, "Sea Org". (Recently, former Sea Org members claimed to have been forced to have abortions.)

According to the article, agents from an FBI task force on human trafficking have been interviewing former members of Scientology about abuse in the church since at least December, 2009, and the case remains open. Why human trafficking?
