The NSW Director of Public Prosecutions has dropped its charges against a senior Scientologist who had been accused of telling an 11-year-old girl she should deny charges of sexual abuse against another member of the church.

Janice Meyer, also known as Jan Eastgate, is the head of the church's Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a group which works to discredit a number of conventional psychiatric treatments, including the use of medications such as Ritalin and Prozac.

In May last year, Ms Meyer was charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice over an alleged incident in 1985. Police had claimed that Ms Meyer told the 11-year-old girl she should deny any charges of sexual abuse to police and officers from the Department of Social Services.

However, in Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court this morning, a representative of the DPP informed the magistrate that they had dropped all charges against her.

In a statement released to the media today, Ms Meyer said she had always maintained her innocence and had "had an exemplary career for more than 30 years dedicated to serving the community and families as well as championing human rights".

"I have worked overseas since 1993. When I heard of the allegations that had been made against me, I voluntarily returned to Australia to clear my good name."

"This outcome means I can concentrate on my work to assist people in need of help both in Australia and overseas through the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a group that investigates psychiatric-pharmaceutical conflicts of interest and human rights abuse."
