MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. The Moscow City Court on Monday ruled to shut down the local Church of Scientology at the Russian Justice Ministry’s demand.
According to the ministry, the church regulations contradict the federal law on the freedom of religion.
The Moscow Church of Scientology registered in the capital in 1994 has been ordered to set up a commission to handle its liquidation within six months.
The organization’s lawyers said the Justice Ministry gave no serious reasons which "could influence the liquidation."
"The organization violated no bans," lawyers said.
