Judge orders Scientology leader jailed - 1988-11-24
Scientology's leader was ordered jailed without bail in Spain on Wednesday pending possible charges of engaging in criminal acts. If convicted, he could face more than 30 years in prison, officials said.
The judge ordered that Jentzsch and 10 other church members be held pending possible charges including illicit association, coercion, fraud, labor law violations, tax evasion and flight of capital, officials said.
Bail "won't be allowed in this case," said Helga Soto, a spokeswoman at the Spanish Embassy in Washington.
