It means that any alleged offenders who 'abuse' or 'threaten' the Church of Scientology can be charged under the Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006.

It is understood the decision was made this month after the Police Diversity Directorate asked the CPS to clarify its position on the organisation.

It follows the arrest last summer of a 15-year-old boy for calling Scientology a 'dangerous cult' during a demonstration outside the Church's £23million headquarters in London.
