You claim Sheela left with a lot of money. How much money did she take from you?
I don’t know. She has not taken from here, but the money that was coming from Europe to this commune as a donation, she stopped it somewhere in Switzerland and opened a bank account there. Her secretary has informed that it is forty-three million dollars.
There are some people who think you are still cooperating with her and may go to Europe with her. Is that true?
You’re going to stay in Oregon come what…
I am going to stay here come what.
[Here Gibson interviews Frohnmeyer, head of the investigation in Rajneeshpuram.]
Your assistant, Sheela, has charged that there is widespread drug use in your Rajneeshpuram, and that many of your followers are in effect drugged most of the time. Is that correct?
That is absolutely absurd.
There is no use of this drug ecstasy at your commune?
Not at all.
Is it used at all?
She has charged also the illegal use and procurement of weapons.
