It was established in 2000 as a family committee “to create a mutual assistance network between all those whose relatives have been trapped into destructive cultic groups or are undergoing forms of mind control or manipulation on the part of individuals and/or organizations of various natures and denominations.” Its stated business has been since the beginning “to inform about the phenomenon/plague of cults and mind control of followers, providing legal counsel,” against new religious movements considered “a cancer in metastasis within our society,” so it also included “factual cooperation with police forces to report civil and criminal abuses on the part of dangerous destructive cultic organizations.”
