Moscow Court Bans Church of Scientology

Date: October 8, 1999

A Moscow court has revoked a licence from the Russian branch of the Church of Scientology, city prosecutors told the Russian agency ITAR-TASS on Friday.

It said the move followed the filing of a case against the Humanitarian Hubbard Centre by a Moscow prosecutor in the spring after an investigation into alleged human rights abuses.
