A few sites are reporting big trouble in Belgium for Scientology.

Could Belgium Bring Down Scientology? – Global – The Atlantic Wire.

Scientologists may be facing their most daunting court case yet, and all it took was for someone to stop calling them a cult. After a years long legal battle, federal prosecutors in Belgium now believe their investigation is complete enough to charge the Church of Scientology and its leaders as a criminal organization on charges of extortion, fraud, privacy breaches, and the illegal practice of medicine. “The decision follows years of investigation that was triggered by a complaint by the Labour Mediation Service in the Brussels Region.

Losing faith? Belgium to charge Church of Scientology with fraud and extortion – reports — RT.

After a long lasting legal battle Belgium prosecutors demand to label the Church of Scientology as a criminal organization and charge it and its leaders with extortion, fraud, privacy breaches, and the illegal practice of medicine.

The subpoenas have been sent to the scientologists, the local financial newspaper De Tijd reported.
The charges against the Church of Scientology stem from employment contracts issued to recruit volunteers and members allegedly breaching the country’s strict employment laws. In Belgium as in some other countries Scientology is not recognized as a faith.

A raid on their offices produced evidence. The members are calling it a “witch hunt” but Scientologists are well known for their dubious dealings. They were already nailed in France.

    Now if this could be applied to the rest of the major ‘religions’ as crime dealing money sucking profit factories… I’d jump on a class action lawsuit conerning Christianity’s indiscretions.
