A DAUGHTER of the Donegal nightclub owner who was paid compensation of €4.5 million for a miscarriage of justice, has claimed she is being harassed by two former members of the Church of Scientology.
Sabrina Collins Shortt (36), daughter of Frank Shortt, former owner of the Point Inn nightclub in Inishowen, alleges she was intimidated while handing out literature on drugs in Dublin city centre in the run up to Christmas.
Ms Shortt is a member of the Church of Scientology who told the High Court in Dublin this week she was verbally abused and intimidated while distributing an anti drugs booklet around Parnell Square on December 20 last.
The mother of one claims two former Scientologists, who are now vocal in their disapproval of the church, are responsible for the harassment and she’s secured a temporary court order against them.
One John McGhee of Armstrong Road, Clara, County Offaly is alleged to have breached that order.
Appearing in court today (Monday) he agreed to abide by its terms and effectively stay away from Sabrina Collins Shortt and another church goer.
He said when he was originally served with the order last month he binned it claiming that the Church of Scientology has previously served ‘fraudulent documentation’ in what he called a ‘dark history of misleading people’.
