Academy Award-winning composer Isaac Hayes and jazz great Chick Corea, also Scientologists, told the Commission members of discrimination they witnessed firsthand in Germany.

      “An unfettered iron fist looms over religious minorities in Germany,” said Hayes, “and they never know when or where it will strike next. This Commission can make a dramatic difference by demanding that Germany immediately stop the harassment of religious minorities and meet its international human rights obligations.”

      Describing pervasive discrimination by German governments at federal, state and local levels as “chilling,” Corea said, “What bothers me is the fact that this can happen on the threshold of the year 2000, in a country we think is a democracy.”

      Travolta, Hayes and Corea urged the Commission to send a fact-finding delegation to Germany to verify that nation’s violations of the rights guaranteed under the Helsinki Accords, also known as the Helsinki Final Act, signed by more than 50 nations in Europe plus the United States and Canada, to monitor and uphold agreements regarding human rights.
