Reader's Digest, defying a Swiss court order, mailed out more than 320,000 copies of a Swiss edition containing an article critical of the Church of Scientology.

Managing Editor Hans Bosshard said Oct. 1 the decision to ignore the order blocking distribution of the October issue was made because it was a "violation of press freedom." The magazine refused to "withhold the truth about the sect," he said.

The October issue contained a condensation of a Time magazine article published in May. It is carried in most of the 40 editions of Reader's Digest published worldwide in 16 languages.
