      "An official federal complaint has been filed with the California
      Attorney General's office against the "Church of Scientology" in a
      220-page legal complaint. Various charges of criminal acts have been
      alleged, including:

      Violations Of U. S. Title 18, Chapter 15, Section 287 (making false,
      fictitious or fraudulent claims to government agencies), nine counts;
      Chapter 37 (Espionage and censorship), one count; Chapter 41
      (Extortion and threats), one count; Chapter 45 (Foreign Relations),
      three counts; Chapter 63 (Mail Fraud), one count; Chapter 73
      (Obstruction of Justice), one count; Chapter 37 (Espionage and
      censorship)
      Sec. 793 - Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information, one
      count; Chapter 41 (Extortion and threats), Sec. 875 - Interstate
      communications, 13 counts; Chapter 45 (Foreign Relations), Sec. 953 -
      Private correspondence with foreign governments, 3 counts; Chapter 63
      (Mail Fraud), Sec. 1341 - Frauds and swindles, one count; Chapter 73
      (Obstruction of Justice), Sec. 1512 - Tampering with a witness,
      victim, or an informant, three counts; and Chapter 13 (Civil Rights),
      Sec. 241 - Conspiracy against rights, 43 counts.

      The official complaint is supported by over 1,300 pages of legal
      documents including 61 affidavits by victims of crimes and human
      rights abuses committed against them by the "Church of Scientology;"
      120 court transcripts by witnesses under oath; 105 sworn declarations;
      and 13 audio-video confessions by previous Scientology racketeers.

      The Scientology organization denies all wrong-doing."
