A court on Friday rejected a fraud and extortion case against the Belgian branch of the Church of Scientology which could have seen the controversial organisation banned in Belgium.

Eleven members of the US-based church and two affiliated bodies were charged with fraud, extortion, running a criminal organisation and violating the right to privacy, all of which Scientology denied.
