At the least the children's names should not be posted like they are in post #31.
If children are being used as pawns by C of $ ...and scientologists.....then it should be posted, noted and discussed. IMO
Should American Parents even be able to send a couple of their kids.....5000 miles away, to a foreign country..... to be raised by strangers?
Have they been sent to a Certified Boarding School....? Doesn't sound like it....
Perhaps Social Services in the Bay Area should be notified....?
Am I just imagining it or is that name pronounced "demon"? It could be pronounced like "diamond", I guess, but if the first is the case, what a horrible name to give to a child.
Here's Charmaine who extorts megabucks from Bob Duggan, $50 million and counting.

Working on percentages, Robert Duggan has given about 3% of his wealth to the IAS.
Although the quantity is mind-numbing, paradoxically, it is much less, in terms of percentage, than a 'normal' Scientologist would donate. If some normal person who earns say, $60,000 a year gave 3% of his wealth, he would be handing over about $1800. Many Scientologists, as we all know, have been hounded to give over almost everything they own so as to 'up' their IAS status.
That was shocking enough, but this story has taken it to another level. Now the church is organizing and monitoring the fostering of children for convenience.
The infamous Charmaine Roger, chief Super Power “fundraiser” has apparently, through her South African connections, arranged for her primary whale to rid himself of a problem child (or maybe more). In exchange for massive donations to “super power” and “ideal orgs” in South Africa (while the nearest orgs to the Duggans are still desperate for ideal org funding) at least one of his children has been “found a home” with a couple of prominent, apparently unsuited, but bought off scientologists in Joburg. As I said on Tony Ortega’s site — they thought this was going to stay inside the bubble. But then they went and declared everyone….
This story is beneath anything I am aware of in the history of the vulture culture.
What next? Will the church arrange to “disappear” uncooperative whale spouses? David Miscavige has already paved the way for that “service” with his own wife.
This is ugly. I don’t know if it violates any laws, but it is certainly immoral. Once again, the most ethical group on earth, the voice for humanity, displays just how astonishingly UNethical it is.
As a curious footnote: South Africa seems to be the “go to” place for scientology problem avoidance (sort of like Paraguay for the Nazis?). When Tony Hitchman fled the country because of his intimate connection to the Reed Slatkin crime spree, it was to South Africa (he is from Rhodesia). It’s also an interesting coincidence that the Duggans, Reed Slatkin and Tony Hitchman were all Santa Barbara org “public” back in the 80’s/90’s.
And that’s the South African end of this strange story – one we hope will come to a stable and happy end for the children involved.
Shelley states as her final comment “My opinions on this story are many and I could have given a lot more data in terms of the fallout this caused in my family. Those details however are not the point and this blog is not the platform. What is important to me is that Junior deserves a loving home with stability in his life which seems to have been anything but normal up to this point.”

Caption for photo should read (Charmaine speaking):
"Normally a little acceptable truth or a little white lie
is enough to scam money out of a little being.
But, with really BIG beings like Bob Duggan--
to get the BIG bucks, you're gonna
need a BIG-ASSED lie, like
The FBI & the Dept. of Homeland Security needs to be made aware of these facts. These actions amount to human trafficking involving a child. Only an idiot would think taking a child out of the country every 3 months to preserve a vacation visa is normal behavior. The fact that the Duggan's is paying for this scheme makes them a party to criminal misconduct.
Has anyone stopped to think of contacting child welfare advocates in the South African government?

The Florida Dept of Children and Families has a hotline, website, fax line if Shelly is interested in report what sounds like explicit child neglect as this boy per comments is in need of immediate help. You do not have to give your name and it’s not just for abuse matters. I at least wanted to give the contact info for consideration. Wishing the best outcome for all concerned. This is heartbreaking news. Thanks to all who were brave enough to give this child a voice.

From the South African Independent Scientology blog Scientologists getting back in comm:
Hello all. I am a long-time poster at Tony O's and long-time lurker here. Just wanted to say thanks to all who helped expose this story. While I feel deeply that Miscavige deserves as much J&D as possible, I'm pleased to see that some of the whales that help prop up this fraud are getting exposed too. I am disgusted by the actions of the adults in this situation and my heart breaks for these children. They didn't ask for this. Keep speaking out folks, every story is important. Miscavige, Duggans, etc....Karma is a b***h, and she's coming for you.
So what's the handling?
Tired boy on route right now to appear in the next coupla days in happy family pics taken in front of the Statue of Liberty?
Will the other out-sourced family members be in the picture too?
Welfare are not going to be concerned. None of this will trigger an intervention. His biological father could maybe try to get the kids back, but fighting legal battles takes money and favours the wealthy parties. I don't know if the biological family is even in a position to deal with those kinds of mental health issues that are being reported - it may put the other kids in that family at risk. I can't see a happy ending in this situation.
