BONN - The city of Stuttgart said Wednesday it was taking measures to combat Scientology that will put it at the forefront of efforts in Germany to limit the influence of the organization.

All applicants for jobs in the city's public service will now have to give an assurance in writing that they are not members of the group, which says it is a religion but is not recognized as such in Germany, said city official Juergen Kiesl.

Sabine Weber, Scientology's spokeswoman in Germany, accused Stuttgart of "flagrantly abusing human rights by deciding whether or not to employ someone on the basis of the religion they belong to."
