Brussels, Belgium - (Ass Mess): BAD luck Tom Cruise, John Revolta, etc. A top Belgian prosecutor, Jean-Claude Van Espen, has recommended today that the American-based Church of Scientology is indicted for fraud and extortion and that the entire organization confirmed as a major criminal organization.
The move follows a ten yea investigation that has named a dozen individuals to face charges under the European Union's strict anti-racketeering, anti-corruption and fraud laws.
Speaking on TV today Van Espen said that Scientology's Brussels-based Europe office and Belgian missions conducted "fraudulent and unlawful practices in medicine verging on the sort of quackery deemed lunatic even in Medieval times".
The organization also "wantonly violated privacy laws, used illegal and criminal business contracts, and strenuosly hid L Ron Hubbard's lifetime pedophile career by wantonly bribing internaitonal law-eng=forcement agencies to excise the records".
The next moves in Brussels involve an administrative court deciding whether to press charges.
But Scientology's Europe office today hit back and accused the Belgian Prosecutor of "hounding" the organization.
Investigators have spent the past decade collating huge dossiers alleging ex-members' complaints that they'd been the victims of intimidation and extortion.
Justice officials have since seized financial records, correspondence, bank statements and other documentation to identify the paper-trail connected to internaitonal arms and drug dealing that feeds the secret bank accounts which the organization holds in Carribean offshore tax havens such as the Dutch Antilles and Costa Rica.
Belgian police also said today that they have raided the offices of several consultancy firms linked to the organization which show incotrovertible links to global mobster cartels.
"We will bust these assholes," an Interpol source added today.
