THE Church of Scientology has been branded a criminal organisation by a Belgian prosecutor, who has recommended it stands trial for fraud and extortion.

The Los Angeles-based movement, whose members include the films stars Tom Cruise and John Travolta, now faces charges following a ten-year inquiry.

Jean-Claude Van Espen, an investigating prosecutor, said up to 12 people, who have not been named, should be charged.
