Church of Scientology building project remains suspended - 2017-07-07
Two months after authorities halted the construction of headquarters of the Church of Scientology, there is no sign that it will resume any time soon.
In this case it wasn't claims of brainwashing, physical abuse or meddling in the lives of celebrities often heard in connection with the controversial church that stopped construction. It was environmental concerns raised by neighbors in the Paseo de las Palmas neighborhood of the Estado de México municipality.
Huixquilucan Mayor Enrique Vargas del Villar announced April 28 that the project had been suspended because the contractor did not have the mandatory environmental impact study issued by the federal Environment Secretariat (Semarnat).
