DEATH THREATS from Ayahuasca Centres in Portugal raided by Police. Friends of ICEERS were involved in threatening witnesses to police inquries into substance trafficking and Ayahuasca importation with violence and murder. They were also involved in portraying a reality of someeone threatened with murder was a sick and evil liar, helping those involved to maintain plausible deniability.

That was until the ICO in the UK forced the Eternal Heart Ayahuasca Group to turn over data admitting operating in defiance of the law and a Criminal Court found four people culpable in witness harassment and death threats.

Charlotte Walsh from ICEERS brands herself as a member of the ADF steering committee. The Ayahuasca Defense Fund is a fund that has the objective of helping people out of criminal trouble when the authorities make arrests for the importation of Ayahuasca, or in some cases Santo Daime.

It was created by the foundation to try and help drug traffickers avoid prison. Iceers portray drug traffickers and drug dealers as persecuted people unfairly treated by the authorities. When they, the druggies, make serious mistakes, ICEERS tend to not disclosure the truth because it would hurt their cause or discourage investment to the fund. So it is more convenient to try and deny problems or to quietly support those involved in trying to silence people by way of abuse, harassment and threats of violence.

That fact is substantiated after Iceers had chances to condemn the behaviour but were not interested. It transpired it was because those in trouble with the police and the Courts were friends of Iceers.

That explains to a degree why Iceers gave the advice to many in the plant medicine community to humiliate a witness to the Courts, having to testify after being threatened with violence and murder, and to poke fun at him saying he was sick, evil and mentally deranged. Iceers response was to portray a reality where the witness to Court was discrediting the sanctity of an Ayahausca movement that prided itself upon being able to threaten people with abuse and murder with impunity. They did not want to correct their position because their friends were busted by the police for dealing in LSD and marijuana.

They wanted to scapegoat someone and individuals claimed that a witness to Court could be murdered, denounced as sick or evil, denounced as a pedophile, a (censor) and a (censor).

Her own Church in the Netherlands ran into some serious legalization troubles.

It was in part due to a group of people from her Netherlands Church that believed threatening police witnesses with murder, or mocking them as sick and evil, or threatening to finish them off, or to malign them is of an evil mind, was wise. The position of the Ayahuasca Defense Fund was that the one threatened with murder was undermining the sanctity of the Ayahuasca movement in Portugal. However, it had none to start with.

The plant medicine community were encouraged by various friends of Iceers as well as seniors of Ayahuasca Churches to threaten the witness, to discourage him from giving evidence, to cover for the behaviour, to portray the one threatened with violence as a sick and evil liar.

Personal use of marijuana is tolerated in Portugal, but Santo Daime Church members opening Ayahuasca centres and growing many kilos of it, whilst dealing in LSD and other substances, and then making fun of the witness to Criminal Court, is not. But the history of the Santo Daime Church is riddled with stories of victim-hood and persecution, playing the poor me when caught with substances, on one hand, trafficking in substances and flouting the law with apparent contempt, and on the other hand 'crying' about how badly they are being dealt with by the authorities on the other,

The support for threats of violence was extensive and involved numerous retreat centres as well as importers of the Santo Daime Church and documented friends of Iceers. Representatives of the Santo Daime Church that Iceers claim to have nothing to do with claimed he was a rapist, an arsonist, a child abuser, a pedophile evil, sick, twisted and the like, and could expect being murdered and the police being able to do nothing about it.

When Iceers were told about it they showed no interest in correcting their position and took the stance the one threatened with murder was a liar. The ADF showed no interest in correcting statements that implied a police witness was undermining the sanctity of the Ayahuasca movement in Portugal, which encouraged people to post disgusting abuse.

As a result the one threatened with murder and violence explained the problems to the Public Prosecutors in the Netherlands.

The Criminal Court of Appeal in early 2018 in a landmark ruling after 21 years of tolerance, ruled AGAINST the Santo Daime after the Church pre-emptively started a war with the Netherlands State in 2016, which they lost also.

A Tribunal made an Injunction against those responsible for the witness harassment, process number of the Criminal Tribunal is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal.

The Court made findings of witness harassment and found no justification for the behaviour. The police also got involved and filed complaints with the Prosecution and the Tribunal for witness harassment conducted by members of the Santo Daime Church headed by Adrian Freedman.

Adrian Freedman was served with Particulars of Claim for criminal harassment, a cease and desist order prohibiting further incitement of violence or mockery, as well as prohibiting circulation of private data and was told never to return to Portugal.

He thought that finding people to mock a witness as a peodophile was funny, but life taught him a lesson, by way of the State banning his Santo Daime and renewing their efforts to outlaw the activities of The Santo Daime Church.

The plant medicine community that Iceers try and spare from criminal trouble claimed the witness could do nothing about the death threats, could expect to be murdered, labelled as sick and evil, and in essence should just suck it up.

They were mistaken as he was given police protection, the authorities got involved, as well as social services. Adrian Freedman was forced to close down his Eternal Heart Centre Ayahuasca ceremonies and the Public Prosecutors in Holland managed to persuade a Court to criminalize Ayahuasca.

Many of the problems in the plant medicine community can be attributed to the mistaken belief that the law does not apply to them. The matters raised in the reports fall under matters of public interest and can be used in order to understand the complexities underlying drug policy especially in matters of drug legalization.

The approach of the plant medicine community when things go wrong is to single people out as scapegoats, in this matter, a Criminal Court had to injunct friends of Iceers and the Public Ministry in Portugal made moves to ban Ayahuasca.

The plant community in Portugal spent 18 months making problems for a witness to Court that only got involved when he was wrongly maligned as a police snitch and subjected to disgusting abuse. It involved friends of Iceers, the Santo Daime, the Ceu do Cruzeiro de Luz in Cascais and many retreat centres.

They turned on someone because their marijuana supplier got raided and they wanted to blame the one that told them to tone it down.

People can use the example of a police witness being threatened with murder by key representatives of the Santo Daime Church and substance traffickers on police bail to understand the moral and ethical problems that trouble the Santo Daime Church and how that spoiled its standing with the authorities.

They can then understand the relationship between responsible behaviour or lack of it, and how that can manifest as the prohibition of a drug related activity by the authorities. Many in the plant medicine community believe the law does not apply to them explaining why many supported the behaviour and cursed them with renewed criminalization of their practices, raids, arrests, Court cases and general bad luck for plant medicine legalization.

People can see also what can happen if people are wrongly accused of being police snitches and then subjected to disgusting abuse and threats of murder by members of organizations trying to secure legalization for its importation of the substance.

The whole matter serves as a textbook example of why some control and regulation over the importation of drugs is necessary in society and also why the religious defence to using or distributing drugs is flawed, especially where there is no religion in place, or a false claim of one.

It becomes a slippery slide where any drug use, dealing or distribution of drugs, or substances can be claimed as a religious activity or an activity that should be allowed under the provisions of human rights. Then people just continue to do the drugs, trafficking in the substances, and claiming victim-hood later. Often there is no religious practice at all, it is just drug use and drug dealing, plain and simple.

The Tribunal made an Injunction against those responsible with permanent effect on the four named people above, for clarity they are Attila Akat, Alexandra Akat, Daniela Markert and Johannes Maasland, process number of the Criminal Tribunal is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal.

The Criminal Court of Appeal in early 2018 in a landmark ruling after 21 years of tolerance, ruled AGAINST the Santo Daime after the Church pre-emptively started a war with the Netherlands State in 2016, which they lost also.

Documented members of the Santo Daime Church made threats to murder whilst on bail for trafficking substances, they were helped by many others also of the Santo Daime and the plant medicine community backed by Iceers which explains why the Santo Daime Church is filled with the karma of black stones, and the karma of renewed prohibition for its work in multiple countries.

The response of various representatives of the Santo Daime and the plant medicine community is that the witness to Court would be smeared as sick, evil and deranged, should fear for his safety, would be murdered before the police could help and deserved to be poked fun at for the cause of medicine legalization.

Nevertheless regardless of their sentiments, a Criminal Court made findings of witness harassment and imposed an injunction on the offenders.

Court Reference Number is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital.
Police Report Reference Number GCLSA 37.17.0/1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Oliveira do Hospital/Beja GNR

The authorities did not take the side of the drug traffickers, of course not, as a result, the medicine community experienced renewed interventions by the authorities, police raids, adverse judgements and very bad luck for their cause.

    The Santo Daime Church and its representatives were involved in condoning the abasement, humiliation and mockery of witnesses to Criminal Court Proceedings in relation to trafficking in substances and importation of the Santo Daime. They were also involved in threatening Court witnesses with violence or murder, or implying that bad things would happen if the witness testified.

    One representative of the Santo Daime Church threatened murder, another threatened being smeared as sick and evil, another pretended to be a Private Investigator threatening to close down the witnesses bank account, others threatened irrepairable harm to business and reputation, which led a Court to injunct some responsible

    There is evidence to show when told of serious abuse by associates of theirs, the leaders response, most notably Adrian Freedman of the Santo Daime Church was to look the other way as their friends were encouraged to humiliate a witness to police investigations.

    Some of it came from facilitators of Ayahuasca centres set up with the help of Adrian Freedman, they were raided by the police and threatened to murder someone blaming him for the raid.

    The humiliation conducted with the silent approval of Mr Freedman was done to try and threaten off, or discourage a witness in criminal proceedings. They were proceedings for substance trafficking and threats to murder, as well as threatening the witness to Court.

    There were also inquiries by the UK Police into the matter of babies and children being given substances.

    The attitude from the Santo Daime Church is apparent, namely spouting disgusting abuse at others, blaming others for their problems, labelling people mentally ill for wanting an apology, or even claiming people can be killed or murdered.

    Many in the Santo Daime Church 'helped out' with the cultural intimidation in various ways in an attempt to save their practices from being scrutinized by the authorities.

    The key responses from representatives of the Santo Daime Church is that the Court Witness would be murdered or finished off, would be defamed as a person of a sick and evil mind, would flounder in hell, and similar.

    It is assumed that the objective of the Santo Daime Church was to try and pretend the witness was a liar.

    But Adrian Freedman's attempt at plausible deniability backfired as the ICO forced his group to turn over data incriminating them in the running of Santo Daime ceremonies without legal permission.

    The data contained information about Santo Daime events held throughout Europe and debunked the notion that the witness was deranged and a liar.

    A letter emailed and mailed to the Prosecutors office in the Netherlands for review in the Supreme Court contained CDs, flash drives, police reports and other files regarding the Santo Daime and its role in threatening a witness to the investigations conducted by the authorities into substance trafficking and threats to murder, as well as giving Santo Daime to children against the wishes of the authorities, and dealing in other prohibited substances.

    In 2018 the Ministry of Justice interviewed the one threatened with murder by the Santo Daime Church and queried the nature of the substance use.

    They asked about how it was sold and distributed in Portugal, and started the processes to formally ban.

    Portuguese law states that those caught with Ayahuasca or the Santo Daime are substance addicts in need of help and therapy, but distributing or selling the substance comes under trafficking.

    In Portugal trafficking in substances attracts a 4-12 year prison sentence.

    As a result any chance that the Céu de Cruzeiro de Luz had to legalize their substance use in Portugal, was certainly lost as a result of the behaviour.

    Céu de Cruzeiro de Luz had close connections with Adrian Freedman in the United Kingdom, he tried to pretend he was not associated with them but the ICO forced him to turn over information that proved there was a connection.

    He used their people to host ceremonies and in some cases, to import the sacrament.

    The police became interested in the matter when it transpired the Church started importing the substance without the water, a concentrated DMT preparation.

    In Brazil the water is removed leaving a sludgy liquid. It is shipped in medical pouches, perhaps declared as medical goods for customs, then the water is added before use.

    The result is it makes a substance that has a much greater measurable DMT content, it is no longer a natural brew in that state, and it is imported in ways to avoid police and customs detection.

    It is the latter that the Church were most worried about and tried to discourage the witness from testifying, but in Portuguese law, one must testify if called. One has no choice.

    The Church caused the problems by wrongly accusing someone of being a police snitch and making threats to murder. There were also witnesses to the death threats, the Tribunal took safety measures when taking the testimony about what happened.

    A branch of the Santo Daime, Céu de Cruzeiro de Luz, has been fighting for recognition as a formal religious institution in Portugal for many years. In 2004, the church applied for recognition in the RNPC National Registry of Collective – Religious, Non-Catholic Persons. After years of waiting, it gained the status of a civil association – though not an official religion. In 2011, the church applied for recognition as a religion as well as for authorization to use its sacrament in its ceremonies, but was DENIED

    They were still DENIED as of October 3rd 2017, a representative of the Santo Daime Church in Cascais made these statements in an email to someone threatened with MURDER by another representative of the Santo Daime Church:-

    Looking at this Picture, you look more like a homossexual pedophile

    We informed ourselves and the police that this church in Lisbon Cascais have an open process for legalization of their practices.

    The name of the individual was Miguel Abreu, a buddy of Adrian Freedman and one of the leaders of the Céu de Cruzeiro de Luz operating illegally in Portugal. Miguel Abreu runs Monte Mariposa in the Algarve, running Santo Daime retreats without permission. His role was to incite his office workers to mock the witness as mentally deranged, sick, evil and deranged, that was done with the blessing of Adrian Freedman.

    and

    Adrian Freedman LOST the war for freedom of the Santo Daime, his brothers and sisters involved in making death threats and mockery of people who foresee fires, lost their homes and centres to freak wildfires, they LOST their quest to be powerful in Portugal for Ayahuasca.

    Their power was taken from them by God, those who consecrated hubris in Santo Daime works, lost everything, their professional standing, their homes, their centres, their legal freedoms and some were injuncted by a criminal court.

    Adrian Freedman was spoiled by his own darkness and hubris, reinforced by long standing 'Totnes hubris'.

    He drank too much Santo Daime and smoked too much marijuana, everyone else followed him, became contemptuous druggies, undermining the sanctity of the Ayahuasca movement in Portugal, and ultimately, bringing a renewed curse of prohibition and intolerance for Santo Daime.

    They kept drinking Ayahuasca and poked fun at prophecies of fire, saying he was on a mad trip, making fear, was evil, deranged, (censor) and (censor). They claimed he would be set upon by (censor) and would feel the (censor) in his (censor).

    In 2016 and 2017 he foresaw many fires and made recommendations, but the group turned on the wiser brother and prophet amongst them, in essence, turning on (redacted), spitting at it, abusing and mocking it, claiming he was a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted) and a (redacted) amongst other obscenities.

    Each time they turned against him he had visions of fires destroying retreat centres in the Ayahuasca scene in Portugal. The fires are a teacher in humility and respect for medicine, it is Gods way of telling people not to abuse Santo Daime. Several recommendations were ignored in 2014, 15 and 17, that could have averted the disaster, but they were in their egos and thought they knew better and that making fun of the Spiritual Guru was wise, but now 100 people are dead as he foresaw, the police are investigating the Santo Daime throughout Portugal, families have been torn apart by karma, having lost everything and forced off the land by fires, now their ayahuasca works are CLOSED.

    Adrian Freedman lost his battle with the authorities to procure freedom for his Santo Daime. It started in 2010 with Encontro 2010, a business that was started by Mr Freedman for large scale Santo Daime works involving hundreds of people in the United Kingdom. At that time, some members of the Church boasted about how they could insert people in Customs and Excise undercover to wave through vast amounts of Santo Daime substance.

    When Adrian Freedman attempted to order enough Santo Daime from Brazil for 600 people for one week of works, Customs and Excise impounded the substance, made raids on various houses in Totnes, taking away vast quantities of Santo Daime tea that was never returned to the group. He was brought before Court, and the prosecution said in a letter that they did not accept that the DMT in the Santo Daime fell outside of prohibition. He was told explicitly that further attempts to import the substance would result in prosecution.

    After almost 2 years on bail, with an anklet and subjected to other severe restrictions, no charges was brought, but it ended the Santo Daime in the United Kingdom.

    Soon after, in 2012 the Portuguese authorities specifically denied permission for the use of Santo Daime substance in ceremonies, the Church in Portugal tried three times to get legalization, but failed. They were told no.

    But in 2013 and 2014, Adrian Freedman with the help of Monte Mariposa Retreat Centre run by Andy Pears from the UK, along with Miguel Abreu, as well as Gravito Retreat Centre, run by Miguel Humblet and Shobha Brennan, hosted ceremonies without legal permission. To compound to the problem, the gatherings became degenerate, places to smoke pot, weed, marijuana, etc, and to deal in other substances prohibited by law.

    It is averred Gravito became uncomfortable with the gatherings fearing police raids as Adrian Freedman ran out of places to host the gatherings, they also had problems getting enough Santo Daime. Still on a quest to make big Santo Daime and cannabis parties in Portugal, he enlisted others to set up retreat centres that could host such events, using people willing to import Santo Daime concentrates illegally, and people willing to grow vast amounts of marijuana to be sold and shared at gatherings.

    Mestre Irineu was against the use of marijuana, but Adrian Freedman's works were of his own making, by his rules, run by assistants with alcohol and substance abuse issues, grappling with mental health and respect problems, and people that believed drinking alcohol after Ayahuasca ceremony was a wise idea. The combination of ayahuasca, alcohol and cannabis makes people degenerate and makes the works not spiritual works, but illegal substance abuse parties, plain and simple.

    In 2014 he was told to tidy up the act, but had no power over the group as they did not respect him, if Adrian told them not to smoke marijuana, they smoked it anyway. By the end of 2014 his quest for freedom for Santo Daime became a quest to be powerful in Portugal for large scale Santo Daime and cannabis smoking events, in a country where the first is prohibited, and the second prohibited to traffick or distribute to others.

    Personal use of marijuana is tolerated in Portugal, but Santo Daime Church members opening Ayahuasca centres and growing many kilos of it, whilst dealing in LSD and other substances, is not.

    But the history of the Santo Daime is riddled with stories of victim-hood and persecution, playing the poor me when caught with substances, on one hand, trafficking in substances and flouting the law with apparent contempt, and on the other hand 'crying' about how badly they are being dealt with by the authorities.

    The problem was moral grounding and ethical responsibility, qualities Adrian Freedman and his people showed no interest in developing, because Santo Daime mixed with cannabis takes them away, as explained in a free ebook called Santo Daime Revealed Drugs, Lies and Fraud.

    The author explains how he was threatened with murder also, explaining why the Santo Daime has spoiled itself by using marijuana in works. He explains how it messes up people's energy fields, makes them deranged and mentally unstable, sometimes causing psychosis requiring professional mental health treatment with medication.

    The truth is that Adrian Freedman uses other people to do his 'dirty work' namely trafficking in the substance and growing marijuana for events, and has other people that can make trouble for people that defend themselves against threats of violence and murder. Because he got it wrong, his people got it wrong too, culminating in a police raid on a centre he denied founding, but he founded it, with his blessing, and provided the Santo Daime.

    The police in Portugal on Nov 10th 2016 found 14 kilos of cannabis, three big sacks, and many pots of marijuana. They found LSD and cannabis oil making equipment. The individual was named Johannes Maasland and was one of Adrian Freedman's key persons in the running of the Santo Daime in Portugal.

    The Santo Daime in Portugal thought it was the fault of someone who foretold the troubles, Adrian Freedman's associates and friends got involved in behaviour which constitutes witness harassment for which there is no legal excuse, it also was conducted by many people and consitututed 'cultural intimidation' against the witness by the Santo Daime who was not an informant on the police raid.

    But Adrian Freedman's people thought he was, labelling him a sick, evil, mentally deranged (censor) and a (censor) and several times threats to murder were made, as well as attempts to make him not go to the Tribunal as a witness to threats of murder and criminal defamation.

    Adrian Freedman looked the other way and blessed the behaviour, an action that spoiled him, as he learned lying oneself out of a situation or supporting witness vilification and mockery, spelt doom for his Santo Daime.

    In June 2018 a Criminal Tribunal (Criminal Court) injuncted the owners of Earth Connection Portugal and The Sanctuary 1860 prohibiting them from making threats of violence, posting malicious abuse and defamatory statements against the witness to the proceedings. He was threatened with violence and murder.

    The police got involved in that matter as well and filed complaints with the Prosecution and the Tribunal for witness harassment conducted by members of the Santo Daime Church headed by Adrian Freedman.

    The Tribunal made an Injunction against those responsible with permanent effect on the four named people below, process number of the Criminal Tribunal is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal.

    The people that the Criminal Injunction refers to are Johannes Maasland, Alexandra Akat, Attila Akat and also Daniela Markert, sometimes known as Dani Mar or Daniela Mar. All four are brothers and sisters of The Santo Daime Church.

    The injuncted parties were involved in running Ayahuasca retreats in Portugal and advertising them online, their work was started with the assistance of Adrian Freedman of The Santo Daime Church.

    In early 2018 Adrian Freedman finally gave up on his quest to free the Santo Daime, taking down webinars where he portrayed himself as a poor me victim to the authorities, but in truth he is just a member of a criminalized substance trafficking organization that collapsed as a result of threatening people with murder and violence to advance the Santo Daime.

    He brought so much woe and trouble to his family and to the family of his wife, bringing them all into dishonour and shame, he finally gave up.

    His Eternal Heart business was closed down and dissolved, his associates dealt with by police and the Courts, Adrian Freedman realized after the fires that his work in Portugal was finished, and is finished.

    His behaviour brought shame to the Santo Daime, his support for mockery of Court witnesses blew up in his face, destroying his Santo Daime and invoking prohibition by the authorities. His friends thought a police witness was a loser and would be murdered, retreat centres hosting him claimed he was a gay (censor) and a (censor) and poked fun at him claiming he was making prophecies of fire to make fear.

    His life work to free the Santo Daime ended in humiliating defeat, disgrace, dishonour and losses, as everything about his Santo Daime was destroyed, culminating in a landmark ruling in Holland AGAINST the Santo Daime after 21 years of tolerance.

    The main decision from the Amsterdam Court of Appeal is that the import, possession, and use of Ayahuasca leads to an unacceptable danger to public health. This means that, from 28-2-2018, Santo Daime works in the Netherlands are illegal.

    The Court lent toward the side of public safety and implied public safety supersedes any freedom of religion.

    Adrian Freedman LOST the war for freedom of the Santo Daime, his brothers and sisters involved in making death threats and mockery of people who foresee fires, lost their homes and centres to freak wildfires, they LOST their quest to be powerful in Portugal for Ayahuasca.

    Their power was taken from them by God, those who consecrated hubris in Santo Daime works, lost everything, their professional standing, their homes, their centres, their legal freedoms and some were injuncted by a criminal court.

    Adrian Freedman was spoiled by his own darkness and hubris, reinforced by long standing 'Totnes hubris'.

    He drank too much Santo Daime and smoked too much marijuana, everyone else followed him, became contemptuous druggies, undermining the sanctity of the Ayahuasca movement in Portugal, and ultimately, bringing a renewed curse of prohibition and intolerance for Santo Daime.

    His friends Johannes Maasland, Daniela Markert, Alexandra Akat and Attila Akat were handed down an injunction by a Criminal Court in Portugal, their dream of setting up Santo Daime centres and being popular, was also destroyed, because of their hubris.

    The police took the cannabis away and posted on their website about the police raid. Alexandra Akat tried to lie and malign the one threatened with murder as a sick and evil liar, threatening to smear him online if he talked to Court. Threats were made also of murder and violence if he did not take down the reports, so they were uploaded on sites that do not remove.

    The Tribunal made an Injunction against those responsible with permanent effect on the four named people above, process number of the Criminal Tribunal is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal.

    The police also got involved and filed complaints with the Prosecution and the Tribunal for witness harassment conducted by members of the Santo Daime Church headed by Adrian Freedman.

    Adrian Freedman was served with Particulars of Claim for criminal harassment, a cease and desist order prohibiting further incitement of violence or mockery, as well as prohibiting circulation of private data and was told never to return to Portugal.

    He thought that finding people to mock a witness as a peodophile was funny, but life taught him a lesson, by way of the State banning his Santo Daime and renewing their efforts to outlaw the activities of The Santo Daime Church.

    ICEERS quietly took down webinars where Adrian Freedman claimed persecution and victimhood over how the authorities treated him.

    In terms of child abuse, the position of the authorities is that those under 18, sometimes under 16, who are given drugs by adults, are being abused. Those caught face serious consequences.

    Adrian Freedman believes such laws do not apply to him, but now he is known to various authorities for importing substances, evading duty on imported substances, involvement in witness harassment, involvement in threats to murder and giving drugs to babies and kids.

    The bulk of the problems came from Adrian Freedman inciting people to mock a police witness as mentally deranged and stupid to try and discredit him as a sick and evil liar He wanted the authorities to believe he was stupid, a discreditable witness, making up lies about Santo Daime, police raids and other things. But the police took seriously the testimony about the matter of Mr Freedman giving Santo Daime to babies and children.

    It was because he had a record from before in 2010.

    For some reason Adrian Freedman was raided two times at his house in Huxhams Cross in Totnes back in 2010. In August 2010 the authorities went to his house and raided the Santo Daime. Then, three months later, he was raided again at the same place !?

    He did not learn the first time and instead increased the amount of the substance imported into his house, the very same house, to the tune of 54 litres, after he had already been raided once. A news archive featured this information about Adrian Freedman, the women arrested were Noriko Takahashi and Nancy Swinnen.

    A powerful hallucinogenic drug linked to a religious organisation has been seized in police raids across South Devon for the second time in three months.

    Police say they found 54 litres of Ayahuasca, a liquid which contains the powerful hallucinogenic dimethyltryptamine, a designated Class A drug, in a garage in Dartington.

    The haul, one of the biggest ever found in the UK, followed a drugs raid on a home at Huxham’s Cross, the same home police raided in August when they seized quantities of the same drug.

    A total of four people were arrested in the raids which also took place at homes in Staverton, Harbertonford and Kingskerswell.

    Police believe that all four people have links with the Sainte Daime church in which the drug is used as a ‘sacrament’.

    A blend of Christianity, South American and African religions, the church was founded in South America in the 1930s but has spread to the US and Europe where worshippers are believed to meet at each other’s homes or in local halls.

    A 48-year-old man was arrested at the Huxhams Cross address while three women aged 33, 31 and 37 were arrested following raids on the other addresses in Moreleigh Road, Harbertonford, West Hill Terrace, Kingskerswell and West Park, Staverton.

    The women were released on bail pending further inquiries while the man appeared in Torbay Magistrates accused of drug offences.

    Police said the raids were carried out as part of Operation Zephyr –– a South West-wide operation targeting organised crime and involving five forces –– Devon and Cornwall, Avon and Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Dorse, working closely with the Borders Agency and Revenue and Customs.

    DMT originates from South America, comes in the shape of a brown liquid and is prepared from a vine mixed with leaves of various shrubs containing DMT.

    The congregation of the Sainte Daime church are believed to use it as part of their ceremonies to allow members to get in touch with their inner selves.

    A police spokesman said: “Generally it is a very specialised area of the drugs market and not a street drug.”

    But she said police are concerned that it is likely to become more prevalent and said that there had already been one death from the use of the drug which was not linked to the group.

    Detective Inspector Andy Bevan said: “DMT is very dangerous which is why it has been graded a Class A drug. As such it is taken very seriously by police and border agencies. We will continue to take strong action against those who are involved in drug related criminality.”

    The latest raids took place on Wednesday.

    A similar raid took place at Huxhams Cross in August this year when a man and a woman were arrested and a quantity of the drug seized.

    Adrian Freedman, 48, of Huxhams Cross, Dartington, appeared before Torbay Magistrates’ Court yesterday charged with others with conspiracy to evade the prohibition on DMT between January 1 and November 18.

    The case was sent to Plymouth Crown Court to be heard on February 28.

    Freedman was remanded on bail on condition of residence at Huxhams Cross and a 10pm to 6am curfew.

    He was ordered to surrender his passport before he was to be released from custody, barred from applying for travel documents and ordered not to have contact with five named people.

    That was all back in 2010.

    Adrian Freedman up until 2017 played the poor me persecution line. But the measures the police took are standard for a drug trafficking investigation. People's movements are monitored, sometimes they are curfewed to prevent night mischief, substances are taken as evidence and passports are taken to prevent people absconding.

    The case is made out that he defied the authorities on his own volition and brought about his own troubles.

    So the case is made out he had a record for a police raid and his friends that claimed the one threatened with murder was a sick liar is easy to disprove.

    Fast forward a year or so and the case is also made out that the Céu do Cruzeiro de Luz were also banned from using the sacrament in 2011 and 2012.

    The decline notice was given by the authorities in writing and there can be no doubt they understood they were told no. There can be no dispute that they were told no, and Adrian Freedman knew it was no. But in the same way he imported illegal substances 3 months later after the police already raided him once, he then did the substances in Portugal after being told no there as well.

    There can be no dispute of the proof of the obvious defiance against the authorities. He knew the law, and despite being subjected to tough pre-trial conditions in the UK, defied the law again in Portugal and other countries as well.

    ICEERS posted in 2017 that Adrian Freedman was persecuted in 2010.

    That claim is false, he was arrested and subjected to investigation for importing a substance into the United Kingdom.

    ICEERS also published via their associates or affiliated websites a series of various articles explaining how many people involved in Ayahuasca act in defiance of the law. They boldly admit and state as such, to a degree that is beyond any dispute.

    Some articles followed up and stated that ICEERS also help people being persecuted by the authorities (and that is for being in defiance of the authorities).

    The cause of the problem then with persecution of Ayahuasca has nothing to do with religious persecution, it is an inner child rebellion problem that makes its practitioners defiant (and thus not ethical). The ethical practioners go to where it is legal and work there and there are no problems.

    The Santo Daime Church are basically playing out inner child defiance and rebellion on the state and then playing poor me when they do not get their way. The State can be seen as the grown ups that say no to enforce a sense of discipline. As the Church think the authorities are (censored) then they end up being self-victimized by their bad attitude toward the State.

    That is the plain unpalatable truth for Iceers, Adrian Freedman, the plant medicine community and others to deal with.

    It is the truth that Iceers supported Adrian and his stories of persecution for as long as it was possible to, once it became so obvious he was the cause of his troubles they quietly took him off.

    They also deleted the financial reports to hide who they invested money in to bail them out of criminal trouble,

    No amount of scapegoating others or threatening people into silence under threat of murder or being denounced as sick and evil changes anything. That same defiance played out toward the one threatened with murder because Adrian Freedman found people to stick their fingers up at him in defiance.

    He defied the order to close the works and defied the warnings of the fire, his defiance contributed to some extent to the deaths of 41 people in the October 17 Santo Daime fires.

    It is his defiance that is the problem, other people follow him and become defiant also. The end result is a defiant army of substance traffickers on a mission to be at war with authority and the state. They lose because they have not learned the lessons of maturity and wisdom, to leave childhood rebellion behind where it belongs, in childhood.

    Rebellion and defiance equates to hubris which precedes nemesis and in this case the criminalization of the Santo Daime is the punishment for defiance of the law and hubris toward good standards.

    It points out to those who are claiming persecution to start growing up and facing the truth of their problems.

    The naked truth is that Iceers and the ADF help criminals and substance traffickers with authority-defiance issues that play poor me when the dawn raids come.
