Daughter of publican framed by gardai is a leading Scientologist
Frank Shortt's daughter Zabrina and her husband in upper ranks
The daughter and son-in-law of wrongly imprisoned publican Frank Shortt are in the upper echelons of the Irish wing of the Church of Scientology, the Sunday Independent can reveal.
The executive ranks of the Irish mission of the highly secretive religious organisation -- that counts Tom Cruise and John Travolta as members -- includes Zabrina Collins (nee Shortt) and her husband, Gerard Collins.
The revelation comes as the church braces itself for another high-profile legal battle with a former member claiming he was a victim of emotional distress and was defrauded of €100,000.
