UFA (MN) - A criminal case has been launched against a local branch of the Church of Scientology in the republic of Bashkortostan, Komsomolskaya Pravda reports. The members of the Ufa Center of Dianetics and Scientology face charges of illegally trading in medications.
A check made by the local police has shown that the members of the center had been selling their visitors tablets with vitamins C, B1, B2, B6 and B12.

Apart from that, inspectors claim the scientologists had recommended visitors take the vitamins in amounts exceeding the maximum safe doses.
